Yu-Gi-Oh! MASTER DUEL got a major new update. This “content packed” update includes things like a new Solo Mode Gate, and Selection Pack as well as PVP multiplayer event, and more. Casual Mode was added on the 5th, and is part of this months update.



LOS ANGELES – August 9, 2022 – Konami Digital Entertainment Inc. (KONAMI) has today announced that a content-packed new update has arrived for its digital card game Yu-Gi-Oh! MASTER DUEL. The update is available now and includes a new Solo Mode Gate and Selection Pack, as well as a new PvP multiplayer event and a host of other additions and changes. The highly anticipated Casual Match Mode was also added to the game on August 5 as part of this month’s update.

The new Casual Match Mode lets Duelists duke it out with players across the world without it affecting their in-game rank and player level. Whether you’re looking to test a new strategy, Duel without the pressure of ranking on the line, or just to encounter all kinds of Duelists, Casual Matches offer a fresh alternative to Ranked Matches.

The Duelist Cup is a new two-stage multiplayer event available now, featuring tons of rewards for grabs. In the first stage, players can win Duels to raise their level (DLv.) and unlock rewards. Once they reach the highest level, they’ll qualify for the second stage, which will start August 18. In the second stage, players can win Duels to earn points (DP) and raise their standing position in the Duelist Cup. When the event concludes on August 21, players will earn rewards based on their final positions. The player with the highest DP will be the champion of the Duelist Cup. It’s time to Duel and prove yourself to be the best of the best.

In addition to Casual Matches and the Duelist Cup, today’s update introduces the new “The Invincible Beetroopers” Solo Mode Gate and the new Invincible Raid Selection Pack. Both are based around the Beetrooper monsters, which are making its Yu-Gi-Oh! MASTER DUEL debut.

Today’s update also introduces many other additions and quality-of-life improvements, including new card activation animations, options for viewing Duel animations, UI updates and more. Duelists can view the in-game notifications for a full list of changes.

Yu-Gi-Oh! MASTER DUEL is free-to-play with in-game purchases on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Steam, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android, and it’s available now.
