Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel: Konami’s bet in the medium and long term
Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is Konami’s spearhead when it comes to video games in this saga, not only for the year 2022, but also for the medium and long term. Following in the footsteps of another of his recent great successes (Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links), Master Duel has been conceived as a free to play title and game as a service. In other words, it is a title that will be updated over time with new content.
For those new: Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is a card video game based on the TCG/OCG, that is, the physical version of the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game. We have over 10,000 different cards, and the list will be updated over time. For those not so new: in Master Duel there are some curious changes with respect to the TCG. For example, the banlist is that of the OCG, so it can shock us to see players using multiple copies of “C” Maxx, for example.
