    Konami has announced their latest upcoming project, which happens to be a new Yu-Gi-Oh game. Titled Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution, it’ll be a follow up to 2015’s Legacy of the Duelist. It has been confirmed as a Nintendo Switch exclusive and will have online play, but other details will not be divulged until February 21, where an issue of V-Jump will reveal more information. Though not confirmed, it is likely that the game will release this year in Japan, given that this is the series’ 20th anniversary.

    Huh. Kind of odd it's an exclusive, but Legacy of the Duelist seemed neat with the story mode where you have pre-set decks and opponents based on the anime. If this has something similar, I might try it out, since I've never been big on actual deck building.

    Huh, didn't think people still play this or that it was still popular. Ever since they used to be on the same station with pokemon years ago, (Not anymore) :blink:

    Honestly a yugioh game in vr would be more interesting, but shocking to see it persist this long even with Konami's now ruined reputation. :ninja:

    It is weird that it is only Switch exclusive, with the fact that this title has PC, XBox and Ps4 version from 2015 and 2016. Unless it has only story for VRAINS and it is complete different game and to be honest I will love it, if its different game, but I will be also happy with only updated cards.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    You'd be surprised by the amount of stuff Konami does for Yugi. And even without them (Konami), there are still tournaments played with a good fan base.

    I'm just hoping this game comes with a physical card for the TCG.

    I'd like if it came to Steam eventually like the previous LotD. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    "Does it have tag battling" is the question.

    I still play legacy of the duelist with 339 hrs on steam to this day and would like to see this come out to PC one day just to try out the newly release cards including link summons.
