Konami has opened pre-registration for a new Yu-Gi-Oh! mobile game. Yu-Gi-Oh Cross Duel is billed as a brand-new experience involving up to four players at a time. The pre-registration campaign promises rewards for all players based on the number of pre-registrations received. Players can pre-register at this page.
Check out a trailer for the game below.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Cross Duel is distinct from other Yu-Gi-Oh! titles in that it focuses on four-player battling. Each player in the match will have some of their card slots linked to those of their opponents on either side and across. As in other iterations of Duel Monsters, players will summon monsters and use spells to battle the other duelists. A four-player cooperative mode will pit all four players against a single extremely tough set of monsters. Finally, a more relaxed single-player mode rearranges the structure into a two-on-two setup. Multiplayer lobbies also support up to 32 players.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Cross Duel features 3D graphical rendering for all the game’s summoned monsters, as well as ways to customize and unlock their skills for deck-building. Single-player modes will team players up with partners from the anime and manga series. Players can win their partners’ trust through cooperation, improving their performance and earning rewards.
Here’s a look at some of the 3D-rendered monsters available. Some monsters, like the iconic Blue Eyes White Dragon, will have special summoning animations. A gallery mode lets players view the monster models freely.
Yu-Gi-Oh Cross Duel launches in 2022 for iOS and Android. Pre-registered players have a chance to gain early access to the app. Another Yu-Gi-Oh! game, Master Duel, is available on mobile, PC, and consoles.
