The first reveal was an upcoming Nintendo Switch game, Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel. Exclusive footage showed a preview of gameplay, and producer Akitsu Terashima popped in to talk about what fans can expect from the game. The game features the world of Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens, a series currently airing in Japan, and players can duel against characters from the anime. The Rush Duel card game, which has been available since last year in Japan, will introduce fans to a new ruleset that lets players continuously draw cards and summon monsters left and right. But that’s not all — this wouldn’t be Yu-Gi-Oh! without making it a global experience. As players collect Rush Duel cards and build up their decks, they can challenge friends and other fans from all over the world. Interested Yu-Gi-Oh! fans can expect its release this fall in America.

The livestream quickly went over the history of Duel Links and finally revealed a new addition to the app: the ARC-V world will be added sometime this year. Fans can download Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links now on iOS, Android, and PC Steam and prepare for the ARC-V world.

This announcement opened with gameplay footage, and senior producer Kenichi Kataoka went into all the details. As fans guessed by the title, players will use the Master Rules of the Yu-Gi-Oh!

Master Duel will be available on virtually every platform worldwide: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, Steam, iOS, and Android. Kataoka teased the 4K resolution of the game, encouraging fans to play on the big screen.
