Konami has some very big plans in the offing for Yu-Gi-Oh fans, revealing three new games based on the trading cards coming to multiple platforms in the near future.
Pokemon might have been the franchise that kicked off the trading card boom more than 20 years ago, but it certainly isn't the only one to have stuck around. Yu-Gi-Oh has also been around for more than two decades at this point. Much like Pokemon, the Yu-Gi-Oh franchise continues to go from strength to strength, branch out, and prove that it still has a big role to play in the modern-day, and not just in the trading card world.
Konami further confirmed that today via the reveal of not one, but three new Yu-Gi-Oh video games coming to multiple platforms in the near future during its Digital Next livestream. The most exciting of the trio is Master Duel which is coming to pretty much every platform imaginable, including PS5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and mobile.

Master Duel is a digital version of the Yu-Gi-Oh card game that will allow its players to collect cards and battle rivals all over the world. It will also be the first Yu-Gi-Oh game ever to feature 4K graphics on supported devices. You can check out everything you need to know about Master Duel, including all of its supported platforms at the new game's official site.
A slightly more niche addition to the growing Yu-Gi-Oh video game family is Rush Duel. Rush Duel will be a Switch exclusive based on the card game of the same name that was released in Japan last year. The Switch game features a different ruleset to regular Yu-Gi-Oh play and will also allow players to take on rivals in Sevens. Rush Duel will launch on Switch this fall in Europe and the Americas and in Japan next month.
Last but not least is Yu-Gi-Oh Cross Duel. Not much was revealed about the mobile game other than it will feature four-player battles and only be available on iOS and Android. In addition to the announcement of three new games, Konami also celebrated Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links surpassing 140 million downloads by revealing Yu-Gi-Oh ARC-V World will be coming to the mobile game soon.
