Enter the Duelist Simulator to take your place among the finest Duelists ever in Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist! Players from around the world have been invited to take part in an elite Dueling program that simulates the best Duels across all of Yu-Gi-Oh! history. Replay actual events in the Yu-Gi-Oh! timeline, from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! series up to Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, featuring the storylines, characters, and Decks in a brand new Story Campaign. Duelists will also Duel against characters from the newest generation of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TV series, Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, with even more Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Duels to be added later as downloadable content.

With over 6,600 cards to play with, including new Pendulum Summon Monsters, Duelists can fight in hundreds of matches with over 90 characters, and even compete in new Battle Pack Sealed Deck and Draft play with other Duelists online.


  • The very first Yu-Gi-Oh! video game available for the PS4™ and Xbox One for a never-before-seen next generation Yu-Gi-Oh! experience!
  • Relive past Dueling glory with a Story Campaign that recounts the events from the Yu-Gi-Oh! TV series! Battle your opponent, and then take on the role of that character and Duel against the protagonist in a “Reverse Duel.”
  • Duel with the latest cards from the official Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME, including Pendulum Summon Monsters!
  • For the first time, compete in Battle Pack Sealed and Draft play against the A.I. or with players online. Battle Pack formats supported include Battle Pack: Epic Dawn, Battle Pack 2: War of the Giants, and War of the Giants: Round 2.
  • Customize your Decks with more than 6,600 cards, the most in any Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME video game.
  • Compete against characters from the newest generation of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TV series, Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V!
  • Add-on content available at launch, with additional Decks, Avatars, playable characters and Duels!

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist will launch this summer on PS4 for $19.99. The digital add-ons will cost $4.99 each.

No word on if Ultra Street Fighter IV PS4’s Other Ocean Interactive is returning to develop this one.

I have to say that this is more than what I was expecting given the last two Yu-Gi-Oh! home console games. It kind of sounds like an alternate take on the same concept behind Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V Tag Force Special with a bunch of alterations. Advertising day-1 DLC card packs does set off some alarm bells, though. Yu-Gi-Oh! Decade Duels and Millennium Duels were a chore to play to grind good cards if you weren’t interested in paying for DLC.

    I haven’t played Yu Gi Oh since Dawn of Destiny on the original xbox. I did watch the original tv show though and my boy is into it, so this is most likely getting downloaded by me.

  • AvanStrike

    will this be available in NA?

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Right now Legacy of the Duelist has only been announced for North America, so yep. I’m sure it’ll land in Europe too.

  • Freelance

  • Peacock

    for the love god Other Ocean Interactive sucks at making net code this will FLOP bad if they develop this game.

    • KoolADBestRapper

      How bad could it really be with a card game? There isn’t any action going on. You don’t need to land any 1 frame links… What is the problem?

    • Peacock

  • Jax

    Love this game but $20? That’s it? Let me guess. Latest cards come as $10 DLC packs?
