Yu-Gi-Oh: Duel Links was back at New York Comic Con this year showing off the newest 5D’s World which just released at the end of September.
I was lucky enough to chat with the Senior Producer Kenichi Kataoka to discuss future plans for the game.
Yu-Gi-Oh fans have been looking for the game to add a draft mode. Kataoka responded to that by saying that it has been brought up before and the team is currently brainstorming ideas on how they can bring it to Duel Links.
Yu-Gi-Oh is known for having an incredible story arch whether it is in the manga or the anime, but Duel Links does not have a narrative arc in the game. According to Kataoka, that might be changing soon. In 2019, they will be releasing a new story narrative based in the 5D’s world that was released in September.
You have been able to find Duel Links on iOS and Android devices but recently it was added to your computers through Steam. The community has grown by 50% since its launch on the platform, but don’t get excited about being able to use mods or hack the game to get a better deck. Cheating means a quick ban, as it should.
You can play Yu-Gi-Oh: Duel Links and its newest 5D’s update on iOS, Android and Steam. I would like to thank Kenichi Kataoka for taking the time to speak with me.
If you were at NYCC, did you stop by the Yu-Gi-Oh booth and play the trading card game or play Duel Links on those giant monitors? If you did, let us know in the comments and how you did!
