Konami officially announces Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist for PS4
Konami has confirmed what the ratings boards previously leaked: a new Yu-Gi-Oh! card game is heading to current gen home consoles with Legacy of the Duelist.
Here is Konami’s description of the game:
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.

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.
