The long running Yu-Gi-Oh! series has spanned numerous different series over the years, which have also led to countless video games across many platforms. We heard talk of a new console Yu-Gi-Oh! game coming awhile back and now Konami has confirmed that Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist will be coming to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this summer.
Coming to current-gen consoles for the first time, the latest Yu-Gi-Oh! game is definitely made to target the longtime fans of the series, taking characters from the original series all the way up through the latest ARC-V series.
According to Gematsu, the story campaign will even recreate the events of the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise from the beginning all the way through Zexal, making this a definite game for fans to look forward to later this summer. Sadly it does not appear that ARC-V will be involved in the actual story though, since it is ongoing.
“Enter the Duelist Simulator to take your place among the finest Duelists ever in Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist! Players from around the world have been invited to take part in an elite Dueling program that simulates the best Duels across all of Yu-Gi-Oh! history. Replay actual events in the Yu-Gi-Oh! timeline, from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! series up to Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, featuring the storylines, characters, and Decks in a brand new Story Campaign. Duelists will also Duel against characters from the newest generation of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TV series, Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, with even more Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Duels to be added later as downloadable content.“
The game will even feature a unique mode where players can take on the role of the antagonist in story duels, where you instead play against the usual protagonists in the series. This is definitely something that will be a selling point for the game, as long as it is done correctly.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist will feature over 6,600 playable cards and will be releasing for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One digitally at some point this summer for $19.99.
