Yu-Gi-Oh! Early Days Collection English west

Yu-Gi-Oh! Early Days Collection, which was just revealed for Switch yesterday, has now been confirmed for worldwide release on Switch.

Oddly, the English announcement only namedrops the Game Boy Color title Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters 4: Battle of Great Duelists. The Game Boy Advance game Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters 6: Expert 2 was already confirmed for Japan, so it’s a bit of a strange omission. Konami does say that “the collection will include titles that weren’t previously released in the west.”
