Is Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution getting a physical release? Play-Asia seems to think so. The retailer put up a page for the game earlier this week, and is now taking pre-orders for a boxed European copy here.

Despite the Play-Asia listing, we do have to take this with a salt for the time being – which is why we’re marking our post as a rumor. What gives us pause in particular is that Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution will be digital-only in Japan. It’s certainly possible that Konami could have different plans for the west, but we’ll have to wait and see how things pan out in the future.

Konami has revealed the boxart for Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball. Take a look at the Japanese packaging shot above.

Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball for Switch is heading to June 27 in Japan, Konami announced today.

The “Pawapuro-kun” amiibo card will be offered as a first-print bonus. It grants the following:

– To receive training items that can be used in “Treasure” mode each day. (Batter training items are easy to obtain.)
– When playing “Treasure” mode with friends, you can store the items you received and take them back to your game.

We have some screenshots from Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball below, along with a look at the amiibo card.

Konami has just announced a trio of collections for Switch. Anniversary Collection Arcade Classics, Castlevania Anniversary Collection, and Contra Anniversary Collection are launching this year.

Anniversary Collection Arcade Classics is first up, and is due out very soon. It’ll launch digitally on April 18 for $19.99, and includes the following games:

Shmuplations has translated a pair of classic interviews with the developers behind Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow. One of these was a discussion with Koji Igarashi, the game’s producer – and is currently leading the way on Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.

One interesting part of the interview came about when Igarashi was asked about why Aria of Sorrow was developed for the Game Boy Advance. He cited strong sales of Circle of the Moon and the fact that 2D games were more acceptable on the device in comparison to something like the PlayStation 2.

This month’s issue of V-Jump provides an update on Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution. The big news is a release date – it’ll launch in Japan on April 25. The game will be a digital download on the eShop.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution features over 9,000 cards from the trading card game and supports the “New Master Rules. Monsters from Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS will also appear in-game for the first time.

In February, Konami revealed Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution for Switch. Although it hasn’t been announced for any territories other than Japan, we may have some hope for a release overseas.

Konami has filed trademarks for Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution in a few new regions. It’s now registered in the United States, Europe, and South Korea. It wouldn’t make a ton of sense for these trademarks to be filed if Konami didn’t have any plans to use them, so hopefully we’ll be hearing something official about a western launch soon.


Konami has announced a new title in their series of Yu-Gi-Oh! games — Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution — and it is coming to Switch.

While details are light at the moment, Gematsu has translated and confirmed some early details from the game’s official website.

It is understood that the game will adapt the popular and long-running game into a console format, but will allow players to face off against characters from the anime series as well as other players around the world. In addition, the game will feature the “New Master Rules”, which are the latest rules adopted within the card game.

More information will be shared when it is known.
