Hello my lovely listeners! This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’re talking two great releases this week: Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition, and The TakeOver. We’ve got more video game updates on Animal Crossing, Bug Fables, and even Yu-Gi-Oh!, then some Pokemon Sword and Shield DLC news. We have an excellent listener mail question about hidden gem series like Hotel Dusk, Famicom Tantei Club, and other obscure text-based, point-and-click adventures.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution appears to have been a modest success for Konami. The game has shipped 500,000 copies on Switch, the company recently confirmed. That figure seemingly accounts for worldwide copies since the title ended up on Nintendo’s console last summer.

In March, a major update released for Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution. It added several new cards, content from Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, and updated rules.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution can be purchased both physically and digitally on Switch.

As previously announced, the major free update for Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution is now available on Nintendo Switch. The update, which brings the game to version 1.0.1, adds the new Master Rule change, new cards, new story battles and several other improvements.

As we previously reported, Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution on Nintendo Switch will be getting a free update to coincide with its release on other platforms that will add new content, new cards and the important addition of the new Master Rule. Today, Konami announced the release date of this new update: March 24, so in just three weeks. Here’s a new Japanese trailer showing off some of the new content:

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution, formerly a Switch exclusive game, will be released on other platforms in Spring 2020. However, the Switch version will be getting a free update at the same time which will add the new content the other versions are getting. As we previously reported, this will include new cards such as Crystron Halqifibrax as well as 15 new characters from Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS.

Perhaps more importantly though, the update will also include the new Master Rule change that’s also coming to the TCG on April 1st. The new Master Rule will once again allow players to summon Fusion, Synchro and Xyz monsters to the Main Monster Zone. Currently in Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution, it’s only possible to summon one of these monsters to the Extra Monster Zone, which severely limits the viability of many decks.

Konami isn’t done with Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution on Switch. Announced at Jump Festa 2020 today, many new cards will be added including “Crystron Halqifibrax,” “Firewall Dragon Darkfluid,” and “I:P Masquerena”. The total number of cards will exceed over 10,000 following the update.

New cards won’t be the only aspect of the update. Ai, Revolver, Soulburner, and others from Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS will appear as duelists as well.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution gives fan of all ages and all eras a chance to have the experience of card gaming – from its collective nature, strategic building, and more – at home or on the go. While it doesn’t have the grab it once did, the franchise is alive and well and now has an incredibly high amount of cards. Yu-Gi-Oh! has always held a special place in my heart having grown up with it, despite me having fallen off around the time 5Ds was in circulation, so jumping back and learning so much of the new elements like pendulum and XYZ cards had a sort of thrill behind it, allowing me to catch up on all that I’ve missed. With Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution, it is exactly what it sounds like – the legacy of Yu-Gi-Oh! as a property, and the adventures of Yugi Muto throughout the history of the illustrious series.

Konami has issued a launch trailer for Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution, which is out now in the west. Watch it below.

During E3 2019 this week, we went hands-on with Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution. View some footage from our play session below.

Earlier today, Konami announced that Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution is heading west on August 20. Amazon is now taking pre-orders for the game here.

As previously mentioned, three physical cards are included with every purchase. They include Progleo, the Cyberse Monster Micro Coder, and the Spell Card Cynet Codec.
