Legacy of the Duelist Brings Yu-Gi-Oh! to Current Gen Platforms

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist Banner

Most card battling games have a fiction that arises from the card games themselves. Magic doesn’t tell you about the wizards, just the spells. Rare is the case in which the fiction that surrounds the card battles is actually more interesting. Such is Yu-Gi-Oh!, so it pleases me to see that the new Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist, coming from Konami some time in early summer to PlayStation 4 and XBOX One, will include a story campaign that recreates many of the major events and duels from the long running Yu-Gi-Oh! animated franchise, from the original TV series to all the way through to Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL.

This really is my preferred way of catching up on long shows. Ultimate Ninja Storm is how I watched some 150 episodes of Naruto and it only took, like, eight hours. Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V is also part of the game and more from that, the newest of the Yu-Gi-Oh! series, will be added on after launch.

If you’re like me, you’ll also appreciate Legacy of the Duelist’s comprehensive tutorials for newcomers. For the seasoned Yu-Gi-Oh! player, the new game also includes the latest cards from the official Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME, including Pendulum Summon Monsters, bringing the total number of cards to over 6,600, a franchise best. Also for the first time, players can compete in Battle Pack Sealed and Draft play online or against the computer. Battle Pack formats supported include Battle Pack: Epic Dawn, Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants, and War of the Giants: Round 2.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist will be available digitally for $19.99 at launch with additional content (more Decks, Avatars, playable characters and Duels) also coming at launch for $4.99 each.

A student of games, I play a bit of everything because I like to see what’s out there. Nothing better than first hand experience when it comes to knowing about games. Current game obsession: Anything MOBA (Paragon, Battleborn, Heroes of the Storm), except, ironically, the most popular ones, LoL and DOTA2.
