Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links card game goes global on Android and iOS devices
KONAMI has just announced the its highly-acclaimed Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links competitive card game is now available in more than 150 countries and regions. The game has been initially released in Japan on November 17, 2016, where in the two months since its launch it hit 9 million downloads in the App Store and Google Play.
According to the Japanese publisher, the game's global release will start from North America, Asia and Oceania regions, followed by Europe, South America and Africa regions. However, the game will not be launched in China and South Korea for the time being.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links features both single and multiplayer modes. The single campaign allows players to duel with their favorite characters from the Yu-Gi-Oh! World, while at the same time completing Stage missions to earn various rewards.
The bread and butter of the game is nonetheless the online PvP aspect where players can engage in Duels anytime and anywhere with other players from around the world.
Using the cards they collect in-game, players can build and edit their decks to take on opponents. New cards can also be obtained in the Shop, but they cost in-game currency.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links is available for free on Android and iOS devices, but it comes with in-app purchases. It's also worth noting that the KONAMI's game requires devices running Android 4.4 or iOS 8.0 and higher.
