Konami has announced it will release key new Yu-Gi-Oh! titles across a number of formats in 2016, allowing an even wider audience to enjoy the series, which is already popular worldwide as a card game and range of console titles.
KONAMI is engaged in a number of initiatives to bring the Yu-Gi-Oh! series to an ever larger range of devices. In the spring, a new mobile game Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links will be released, followed by a new game for the Nintendo 3DS platform in the summer. KONAMI will also release a new online game for consoles and PC in the winter while the popular console game Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist and mobile game Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation will both receive major updates.
The Yu-Gi-Oh! series is based on both the manga Yu-Gi-Oh! (by Kazuki Takahashi), which has been serialized in SHUEISHA Inc.’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1996, and the subsequent “Yu-Gi-Oh!” anime series (currently airing on TV Tokyo-affiliated channels). KONAMI released the first console game in 1998, and the series, including the trading card game, is still enjoyed by countless players worldwide. KONAMI will continue to develop and distribute a wide range of Yu-Gi-Oh! content to deliver the fun and excitement of the series to players around the globe.
