Ratings Watch: Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of The Duelist on PS4
Germany’s USK and Australia’s classification board have both let news slip on an upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! video game. Titled Yu-Gi-Oh!

With such limited information available, I can’t help but speculate. Given we’re finding out about this game through western ratings boards rather than a Japanese media source, as well as the platform selection of home consoles, I have to imagine this is another Other Ocean Yu-Gi-Oh! game. The Canadian development studio handled work on PS3’s Decade Duels and Millennium Duels releases, as well as the recent Duel Generation smartphone game. I’m not a fan of any of those titles.

The games used to be so much more than what they are today. Maybe I’m wrong and Legacy of the Duelist will be different. If not, well, I’ll keep on dreaming about Tag Force 7 on Vita, or at least a localization of Tag Force Special …
