Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution

Konami issued the first screenshots from Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution on Switch. Get a look at the images in the gallery below.

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.

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.
