It was just about a week ago that Konami soft-launched their Yu-Gi-Oh! card battling game, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation (Free), but already it appears the game has launched worldwide, popping up in the US App Store earlier today. Based on the original, physical Yu-Gi-Oh! card game, Duel Generation features over 6,000 cards, online multiplayer, and special weekly events. Perhaps most importantly, it allows you to play offline against a computer AI and features a single-player campaign, which is a nice feature for those who don’t always have internet access.
Impressions have been rolling into our forums since the soft-launch last week, and so far they seem mostly positive. Players are praising how well the interface is done in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation as well as the ability to play offline. Being a free to play game, there’s always the question of how the IAP affects the game. There do appear to be premium cards only available via IAP, but we’ll have to see how much they matter in the long-term. Just because someone has a strong card doesn’t automatically make them a better player, you know? At any rate, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation is free so there’s no harm in downloading and checking it out for yourself.
