Official Yu-Gi-Oh World Championships IRL

For Many, It Shall Finally Be Time…TO DUEL!!

The qualifying participants have been selected, and everyone is preparing for the 2015 World Championships…of Duel Monsters.

It’s that time of year again.  Duel Monsters is obviously a game where card selection and strategy can go quite deep if you want it to.  I have many fond memories of watching Yu-Gi-Oh and imagining what kind of deck I’d have, but I never decided to put in the time and investment necessary.  There are a lot of rules and new cards to keep track of as time goes on, after all.

One thing of particular note is that the 2014 World Champion, Sehabi Kheireddine, may not be able to return to defend his title, because he is currently suspended for cheating.  Ouch.  (According to RoadOfTheKing.com)

The featured image is of Team Oceania, who will be participating in the tournament.

Additional note – according to OtakuMode.com, a voice actor and a writer from the Yu-Gi-Oh cast will be making appearances at the event.  They are Shunsuke Kazama and Kenjiro Tsuda, who are both involved in the creation of an upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh movie.  Follow the link to OtakuMode’s article to find out more.

Hopefully we get good, honorable duels this year.  It will be taking place at the Kyoto International Conference Center on Aug. 15 and 16.  Will you be tuning into the recaps of the event?
