It's time to du-du-du-du-DUEL! For those Yu-Gi-Oh! fans out there, new details have emerged about Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel and what it will have to bring fans of the hit anime series. Konami first announced the game back on January 22, 2021, but now we're getting a closer look at what it has to offer, thanks to a recent live stream. 

During Konami's Yu-Gi-Oh! Digital Next live stream from Japan, one of the announcements revealed was a new Master Duel experience. This new game will showcase the original OCG/TCG experience and will offer 4K support, which is great considering this is a digital card game. Those finer details can be highlighted enjoyably. 

Konami also confirmed that Master Rules can be used and that there are easy-to-use in-game tutorials for anyone that may be a little newer to the world of Yu-Gi-Oh. 

Konami also revealed Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel Saikyou Battle Royale specifically for the Nintendo Switch. Currently, it's only slated for a Japan release later this year on August 12, 2021, but Konami did confirm that a global launch will follow soon after later this Fall. 

A new mobile game is also on the way called Cross Duel. This game will allow for 4-player card battles, but we don't have a release date yet. The only estimated window we have for this particular Yu-Gi-Oh adventure is that it is "coming soon." You can see all of the latest reveals from Konami in the full live stream above.
