A while back I reviewed Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution on Nintendo Switch, for the simple reason I’m a fan of the card game and love playing this genre on my portable of choice, whether it be GBA, 3DS or Switch in portable mode. Honestly, the only thing I had against Link Evolution was that when it released it wasn’t up to date with the latest and greatest Yu-Gi-Oh! cards. Which understandably can be a challenge, since it takes far less time to print cards than to program them into a game that works. Which is why today’s two part news is so exciting (at least to me).
First off, Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution is coming digitally to both Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as well as PC. That’s great already, but the next bit overshadows it. When it comes to those platforms on March 24th, it’s also coming with a new update for all platforms which is entirely free for those who already own it on Switch! This will bring many more cards into the game database, as well as new Duelists to battle against. That’s great news, and it’s guaranteed to push me back into my Yu-Gi-Oh! groove again. To see more details, including the press release and trailer, just keep reading.
