    Mmmm I might buy it.It’s been a long time since I play a Yu-gi-oh game.

  • The 5D’s rule changes really threw me off when i played the demo, got outclassed easily by the ai opponents.

    • Nightmesh

      Snycro what?

  • David

    I love YGO games because of the amazing card pool size and deck building. They are superior to MTG games which try to nickel and dime you while using a thousandth of a decent-sized card pool

  • sd28

    i miss the world champion ship series

  • Learii

    i be waiting

    The game was virtually unplayable when I bought it (It was on sale so I got curious). The SP had the most unfair A.I. I’ve ever seen in a game released this generation and the MP suffered due to people that rage quit just when you are about to win which causes the game to just cancel the match without anyone winning.

    • Robert Hendrie

      It’s hard for a reason, they want you to keep playing it over and over to so you can unlock more card. And the online is very broke, I can’t get any wins because of people leaving

    • AJ

      I always wondered why people who played WC 2011 on DS had such high rankings, then I started playing online. And pretty much 100% of the players rage quite as soon as their life dips below yours. It sucks and it isn’t fun.

      Me? I’ll happily lose. I’ll just hate you for using another stupid ninja deck, which everyone does in WC 2011…….

  • It’s just too bad that apparently they’re completely ignoring any of the more recent cards. There’s no XYZ indicator in the deck-building picture, and chances aren’t good that the paid cards will add that.

    I miss the yearly WC games/Tag Force games.

  • Mister_Nep

    I think the Joey and Pegasus deck were the last sets that came out before I stopped playing. From someone who hasn’t played for that long is this game possible to play? How many additions has the game had since then? Can I jump back into the series with this game?

    • Herok♞

      I say you would be able to play still, I had a deck that was 6 years old until last year when I met someone who also played who helped bulid me a deck so I say a online game would help you get back into it.

    • Best thing you can really do is try to pick up one of the more recent games, like Tag Force 5 for the PSP or World Championship 2011 for the DS. Those will generally give you the best ideas of the most recent state of the game that digital ones have to offer. This one would be good though to have to become accustomed to Synchro monsters though.

  • Herok♞

    I might get this but I want to be able to make my deck which has XYZs in it, but I can live if they literally just let you use all the cards, and the packs just add more cards, does anyone know how the deck customizer is set up?

  • Spirit Macardi

    It’d be great if this had achievements. Like if you summon more than one monster in a single turn you unlock “Screw the rules!” or when you use audio chat for the first time you unlock “My voice gives me super-strength!”

    • =P Too much Abridged I guess.

      • Spirit Macardi

        There’s no such thing as too much of the Abridged Series! XD

    • Abhishek Posooa

      That would be super special awesome!!!

    • Mister_Nep

      Don’t forget the one for playing Exodia. “Exodia! It’s not possible!”

      • GaiunxWolfenX

        being defeated by EXODIA. “Exodia?! no one has EVER beaten EXODIA!!

    • Screw Decade Duels… where’s WC2012? 2013? Tag Force 7?

  • kupomogli

    Can you win the additional cards without paying for them or do you have to pay for DLC to get the hundreds of additional cards?

    • OverlordZetta

      It sounds like you have to buy them.
      Depending on the prices, it might not be so bad. If nothing else, if the staple GX and 5D’s cards are included, you should be able to make a deck easily.
      Most “old school” ones are… pretty damn outdated though. Hope they don’t bother with them (all of those dozens of useless normal monsters the original series pumped out, for example) just to take up card space and say they included more cards, that’d bite.

      • Robert Hendrie

        You don’t have to buy them, you can just play the hardest/unfair campaign in a game to unlock more cards. It’s super hard because it’s so damnt short and if it was easy people could make master decks super easily

  • OverlordZetta

    I am so hyped for this.
    So it comes out on PSN this week? Or is that in Japan?

    • Brandonmkii

      I would assume NA, only because of the price being listed in $s.

      • OverlordZetta

        A good point! Thank you.

        • The articles have flags on top, telling you which region is being talked about.

          • OverlordZetta

            … You know, I’ve never noticed those. That’s super helpful. Thanks!

  • Sheen

    will this come to the eu?

  • Raika Souku

    give me cardfight vanguard then im in

  • KyoyaHibari

    Sweet, glad I can play a Tag Force-esque game on my PS3, looking forward to it. I wish it could read save data from the Tag Force games though.

  • Wait, where are these updates? I got on the game and I dont see it

  • Where are my Xyz Monsters, yo? >8(

  • Good old Yugioh, spent so much hours on the GBA versions, they’re a good time eater too if you want to use up an hour or something.

  • MrTyrant


    God! I have 9,95 in my account. Why would you do this to me! D: gotta add more now.

  • I guess it would be asking for too much if I were to request Remote Play compatibility with my Vita. Oh well…

  • Put every card in the series in there and we’ll talk.

  • JMaster3000

    We want it on PC MADAFAKA!

  • Unlimax

    Have you guys played it before .. The A.I & The UI , The sound effects and The whole thing .. IMO it looks like a Fanmade Yu-Gi-Oh! game , Konami Always used to bring to us the depth and good Yu-Gi-Oh games .. but this one , looks pretty simple for the name of Konami .

    In short : The game is just a quick Cash maker .

    Honestly i hope there’s a sequel for Yu-Gi-Oh! Capsule Monster Coliseum … it was the only Yu-Gi-Oh! game i loved .

  • YouGusta

    They should continue with Tag Force series.

  • DraikRoan

    You guys should just go to Dueling Network or download YGOPro (*Google Search to find either) Both has almost every single card ever released. YGOPro even has Anime and Manga cards if you’re into that thing. Plus, they’re free emulators.

  • jugun

    That sux that don’t have xyz’s,I was kinda happy that Brio and Trish was gone from rank,and then even now they would be washed by some of the newer trap cards,but ehhh,I’m sure they’ll make or update again soon

  • Nice turn, a few years earlier I’d have rejoiced. Now I’m more the Cardfight Vanguard!! type.
    I kinda remember a PC version that was similar as well.
    Wonder how it’ll sell, since some of the commentators already see it as a quick cashout.

    Would be really neat if you could use your own deck for it, just like the dueldisk scan system or Eye of Judgement back then.

  • Niyari

    As long as all of the Dark World cards are there, I’m happy.

  • Nathan Topousis

    Is this really coming out this week? All the other news sites are reporting that this was just an announcement for the game, and that it’s official release is TBA.

  • AJ

    I realize this may be off topic, but do any yu-gi-oh fans know what happened with World Championship 2012? Will 2013 come out? I’ve put about 500 hours into 2011 and need more.
