Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links is here! The newest free-to-play Yu-Gi-Oh! mobile game today begins its global conquest, launching in 11 languages and 150 countries and regions, starting with North America, Asia, and Oceania, then followed by Europe, South America, and Africa. Download the game now for iOS and Android.

Konami also uploaded a brand new trailer for the game featuring popular YouTube gaming and tech vloggers Brandon “MYSTIC7” Martyn and Trisha “ThatGrlTrish” Hershberger.

In Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links, players take control of a character from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters series and venture throughout the Duel World to challenge duelists, complete missions, and unlock new features and characters to use. Many characters have special abilities that tie in with their personalities. Players can also duel against others from around the world in the Online Versus mode.

Yu-Gi-Oh! anime fans will love hearing Dan Green (Yugi), Eric Stuart (Kaiba), and all the other voice actors bring the characters to life in a new Yu-Gi-Oh! production. Mobile gaming fans will appreciate the game’s Speed Duel format that’s quick to play and easy for newcomers to learn. If you’ve shied away from the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG in recent years because of its growing complexity and new summoning methods, give Duel Links a shot! It’s a fun throwback to the play style and strategies of the Duel Monsters era, combined with a polished, modern mobile gaming aesthetic.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links opened in mid-2016 with a brief beta test. The game then soft launched in Australia and Singapore in October 2016 before debuting in Japan in November 2016. To date, Duel Links has been downloaded over nine million times.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist’s big update is here! The game has at last landed on PC Steam and includes a wealth of new downloadable content and cards. The game now boasts a library of over 7,400 cards and new story modes like Waking the Dragons from classic Yu-Gi-Oh! and the ARC League Championship from Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V. New decks based on archetypes like D/D, Igknight, Kaiju, Red-Eyes, Toons and more are all available. Konami has also uploaded a new trailer hyping the game. LotD is the first new Yu-Gi-Oh! game for the PC in ages (excluding the failure that was Duel Arena).

Don’t fret if you’re an owner of the original Playstation 4 or Xbox One version of the game; Konami didn’t forget about you. All of the new add-on content available on Steam also makes its way to PS4 and Xbox One today.

Konami first teased news of a LotD update at Jump Festa 2016 almost a full year ago.

Konami formally announced the news Friday evening on Facebook. Presumably, the game will now run on all iOS and Android mobile devices and not just tablets and select large-screen phones. What took so long, Konami?!

Word about the upgrade first surfaced in a now-deleted post dated July 19 from Charles Murakami, one of the producers of Yu-Gi-Oh! DG.

“We are working hard on some new updates!” Murakami teased while posting the photo seen above, which shows the game running on an iPhone. “Can you guess one of them?”

Konami said last December that the 2014 Yu-Gi-Oh! DG game will see new updates in 2016.

Some of the franchises included in the Konami Heritage Games Survey

Would you like to see more Yu-Gi-Oh! games on different platforms? How about a return to the PC, more console games, or a smartphone game? Here’s your chance to let Konami know what you want in the Konami Heritage Games Survey.

Konami would like to know what types of games you want developed in the future, what gaming platforms you use, and what kind of gameplay elements you enjoy the most. The survey features the names of some popular franchises like Yu-Gi-Oh! and Castlevania, but also references many older Konami properties like Gradius, Rocket Knight, Suikoden, Sunset Riders, Vandal Hearts, and Zone of the Enders. Talk about retro!

After completing the survey, you can enter to win an Amazon retail voucher. The survey is open to residents of the United States, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, the European Union, and Mexico.

This survey appeared quite mysteriously two days ago and has been making the rounds on various gaming forums. The survey has since been confirmed by Konami’s European arm to be official.
