Available as a free download on PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch and smartphone, Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is a resounding success with both die-hard fans and those who haven’t felt the soul of the cards in years. A phenomenal popularity that it owes to several factors: its free access, nostalgia and its game mechanics designed for all types of players.

With over 10,000 different cards, colorful animations, and simplified rules for newcomers, Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel breathes new life into the enduring card game. Competitive players see it as a tool to compete against each other in the absence of physical tournaments due to the pandemic and to test their favorite decks. For others, it’s a chance to rediscover the cards of their youth, like Dark Wizard or Blue-Eyed White Dragon, and take them with them wherever and whenever they want.

Released on all current supports, Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel also owes its success to its cross-platform aspect, which allows you to play from one device to another and keep your progress.
