Konami Made A Kinect Yu-Gi-Oh Game, But It’s Not For Sale

By Spencer . July 24, 2014 . 2:15am


Seen at Konami’s Comic-Con booth was a Kinect powered Yu-Gi-Oh game called Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Dash. It’s a racing game where two players control Kuribohs by jumping and ducking. What makes this different from Kinect Sports is there are Yu-Gi-Oh! cards on the race track. These have different effects like making traps for your opponent or giving your Kuriboh a boost.



What’s interesting is Yu-Gi-Oh: Duel Dash is not for sale. This game is only display at conventions like the World Championship Qualifiers. A Konami representative said they have no plans to sell Yu-Gi-Oh: Duel Dash. Instead, they have Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal: World Duel Carnival slated for September on Nintendo 3DS and Yu-Gi-Oh: Duel Generation for tablets which comes out later this summer.

    Konami, I will give you money for Yu-Gi-Oh! Tagforce 7 on Vita. That is all.

    • Guest

      How about Yu-Gi-Oh! R Tag Force, with the progressive storyline system from 1-3? :)

  • dat Kuriboh.

  • Anewme…Again

    Somehow i feel like we will see that game on smartphone someday.

  • Black Heaven

    Yu gi oh … racing game *_*

    I guess we could chalk this off as a tech demo of sorts?

    • nonscpo

      Did you forget…CARD GAMES ON MOTORCYCLES!

    • Acidonia

      they was a 5ds racing game on Wii called Wheellie Breakers but it was not very good and was really unbalanced.

  • Armageddon

    Kuriboh’s temple run.

  • fyi1191

    Let me guess, invincibility mode is Winged Kuriboh.

  • Acidonia

    Yet Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal: World Duel Carnival on 3DS in Europe only had 12 Single player storys yet Japanese one had 40 so like over 50% of the single player content was cut yet they will waste money on somthing like this that is not even for sale konami really do make no sense.

    • Kamakuma

      Well I don’t care for Zexal anyhow so I’ll stick to my tag force honestly. x’D But did they really do that? o.o

      • Acidonia

        Yes they did and this is the only Zexal series game as well. The game has the same story mechanics as the Tag Force games though minus Tag matches and no online Multi player which the DS titles had though these are the case in Japan too.

        Another change is you no longer need to unlock anything expect the left in story modes though the translations so lazy and full of typos it still says in the tutorial you need to. Its also E Shop only in US yet not in Europe so US can not use the Promo cards cards it comes packed with.

  • Samuel

    Why they made a game if they don’t intend to sell it?

    • Godmars

      To show the power of Kinect?

      • ReMeDyIII

        I already know the power of Kinect, and it’s called Fighter Within.

    • admiralvic

      To get people to come and stay at their booth? While it might not get them sales, having something unique and special there will no doubt get attention, which will get people to their booth and the crowd of people will make others wonder why that booth is so crowded, which will ultimately get even more attention / people.

  • Hagaren

    Probably the only game where Trap Hole would work against a Kuriboh.

  • Snorlaxation

    Kuriboh DLC for Mario Kart.

  • What we really need is a new Tag Force. Screw this Kuriboh Krap. (See what I did with crap? I changed the ‘C’ to ‘K’ ’cause HILARIOUS…I’m sorry.)

  • 657rod

    Kuriboh level 9 is hard mode and the last boss is Marshmallon in defense mode, Winged Kuriboh level 10 and Kuribon DLCs


  • wahyudil
