What is Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel?

Yu-Gi-Oh! is a very popular Japanese manga created in 1996 by Kazuki Takahashi. Konami realized how vast and amazing the card game could be adapted into a video game and developed many popular Yu-Gi-Oh! video games. In Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel you will discover a brand new, refreshing, and epic experience from a game that has been evolving for over 20 years. Build your deck, hone your skills, and face your foes. It's game time!


  • Duels: Each duel makes you face your opponent, the players play with a deck they have previously chosen, and they start with a given amount of life points. The duel ends if one or both players' life points reaches zero (it can happen both of them reach zero, in that case, the game ends in a draw), or if certain cards conditions are met (such as having all five cards of Exodia the Forbidden One in hand or all five letters of the Destiny Board on the field). Alternatively, it also ends if a player no longer has any card available in its main deck, or if any of them forfeits. During each turn, each player will go through several phases to place his cards on the battlefield, automatically activate traps or spells, and attack the other player's monsters or life points.
  • A smooth learning curve: No matter if you are an experienced Yu-Gi-Oh player or a new one, the game has been designed to make the experience available for anyone at any level of skill. Indeed, thanks to the valuable tutorials and the solo mode composed of many challenges, you will quickly learn all the basics and compete against other experienced players.
  • Epic battles: Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel has a very long list of available cards that will create interesting combos and chains during the game. Also, another interesting feature is the ability to polymerize (or merge) several cards to summon a stronger one during the game, such as the famous three Blue-Eyes White Dragon that can become the Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon. Many epic, thrilling, and unexpected situations will happen during the duels, and you will love to try all the possible combinations.
  • Immense deck-building potential: Build as many decks as you want from the dedicated menu, choose among all your cards and simply build your main deck and extra deck parts. Moreover, once you make your deck, you can simulate any situation using the "Sample Draw" feature. That way, you may have an interesting preview of your deck cards when you have to fight.
  • Over 10.000 cards: There are tons of cards you will be able to collect, including spells, traps, and monsters. Cards are categorized from normal (N) to rare (R), super rare (SR), and ultra rare (UR). Complete challenges and win duels to earn gems you will spend to buy various card packs in the Shop. You will also make cards and multiple rewards once you complete challenges.
  • Craft any card: Craft any cards you want in a straightforward way using different kinds of crafting points (CP) in the deck builder menu. Crafting points include normal (N CP), rare (R CP), super rare (SP CP), and ultra rare (UR CP). You will also be capable of dismantling any card to retrieve its crafting points and build new cards from old ones. Then, thanks to the easy-to-use card search engine, find the card you want and forge it. Super rare and ultra rare cards cost 30 CP each, which you will be able to earn from missions, Duel Pass, or dismantling.
  • Customize your duels: Thanks to all the available accessories, you will be able to customize your duel the way you want. For example, tune the duel field to fight in epic environments or select your cards protector to adjust the appearance and theme of your card backs during the duels. You can also choose your sidekick mate who will react differently during the matches and icons with hexagonal pictures placed beside the players' in-game and profile name.
  • Learn from other experienced players: Thanks to the card database you will be able to check the decklist from other duelists and analyze their strategy and card combinations. In addition, you can copy other players' decks and find them in your "My Deck" menu, review it if you don't have all the cards, or play it if you have all the needed cards. Pretty handy.
  • Events and tournaments: You will be able to experience events and tournaments in many different formats. You will have to choose the contest you want and strive for the number one spot.
  • Cross-platform: Play anytime, anywhere, on any platform. You will be able to seamlessly fight against all the other players on every supported platform, including PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox one Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS. There will always be someone ready to challenge you.
  • Cross-play: Thanks to the Konami ID, you will be able to synchronize and save your progression across all the supported devices. We explain how it works in more detail in one of the following sections.
  • Amazing user interface: All the user interface has been designed and polished to offer a high-quality user experience no matter where you are. Even though many items and information can be displayed simultaneously, you will never get lost and enjoy the beautiful graphics.
