Yugioh 2016 games

Are you ready to duel?

While Konami may be in the bad habit of ignoring many of their game franchises of late, they haven’t forgotten the cash cow that is the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise. In fact, the wildly popular card game has 3 new video games coming out in 2016, for a variety of devices. This according to Jump Festa 2016, which announced one game for iOS and Android, one for the 3DS and one for PC and consoles. The iOS / Android game is slated for Spring 2016 and is called Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links; the 3DS game is coming Summer 2016, and is called Yu-Gi-Oh! for Nintendo 3DS (god I hope that’s just a working title, bad enough Smash had a similarly boring subtitle); and the PC / consoles game is coming Winter 2016, and is tentatively titled Yu-Gi-Oh! Online Game (so creative!).

Additionally, Konami has added that they will provide massive updates to existing games Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist and Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation, with sadly no announcement for recently released Duel Carnival for the 3DS. Presumably those updates will add to the cards available and maybe even introduce new mechanics such as Pendulum Summons. Here’s hoping these games are more than quick cash grabs, and are definitive experiences for fans of the series.
