allows Duelists to construct the ultimate Deck by choosing from more than 700 authentic Yu-Gi-Oh! cards to play in fast-paced, real-time PvP Duels. The essence of Yu-Gi-Oh! is re-imagined for mobile as players can battle Duelists from all over the world by Summoning monsters, Traps and Spells in an effort to reduce their opponent’s life points to ensure victory.
The Yu-Gi-Oh! series is based on both the manga Yu-Gi-Oh! (by Kazuki Takahashi), which was serialized in SHUEISHA Inc.'s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1996, and the fifth iteration of the “Yu-Gi-Oh!” animated series (currently airing on TV Tokyo-affiliated channels). KONAMI released the first console game in 1998, and the series, including the trading card game, is still enjoyed by countless customers worldwide. KONAMI continues to develop and distribute a wide range of Yu-Gi-Oh! content to deliver the fun and excitement of the series to customers around the globe.
