Konami announced downloads for Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel exceeded 4 million worldwide. The title launched on January 19, 2022, following a brief delay out of 2021. This means it hit the milestone after only a week. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel offers over 10,000 cards, which players can obtain through spending in-game currency or crafting. The in-game currency can be obtained by playing the single-player story mode. This mode is intended to help players learn the various rules and systems before jumping into online play. In addition, players can dismantle cards they do not want to obtain “Craft Points.” These points can be used to craft cards. Players can also buy pre-built decks or cosmetic accessories through the in-game shop. There are also some free packs that people can get.
Konami plans to eventually host official tournaments through Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel. This could include the title potentially appearing at the Yu-Gi-Oh World Championships in some capacity. Leaks also suggested that some more single mode stories will appear for people who want more single-player options in the game.
Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel is available for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and mobile devices. It is available to download entirely for free.
