It Seems The Old Card Game Is Still Going Strong!
We know that a lot of the people who were big fans of the original Yu-Gi-Oh! series jumped off the bandwagon somewhere or other with its many sequels, but it seems the Intellectual Property is still going strong.
So strong that not one, not two, but THREE video games based on card games are scheduled to come out for the series in 2016. With an offering for smartphones, Nintendo 3DS, and PCs, they will be available to a wide market indeed.
So, if you’re a faithlful of the series, or maybe fan experiencing a long-forgotten itch for dueling, this may be a good opportunity to dip or dive back into the world of crazy card games.
Konami announced on Sunday that it will release three new Yu-Gi-Oh! games for smartphones, Nintendo 3DS, and PC in 2016.
Konami will release first game, titled Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links, for iOS and Android in spring 2016. A currently untitled game for Nintendo 3DS is slated for summer 2016, and an online game for PC will follow in winter 2016. No further details are currently available.
Kazuki Takahashi‘s original 1996-2004 Yu-Gi-Oh! manga launched an international franchise that continues to this day with card games, anime, toys, and newer manga series. The latest anime, Yu-Gi-Oh!
