Yu-Gi-Oh! CROSS DUEL is now available in all regions, with a staggered release on both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
The newest Yu-Gi-Oh! game has been widely available to play for the first time since its introduction last July, after going through sporadic phases of closed-off testing.
Konami has created a new mobile gameplay technique that mimics the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game as well as several other iterations, including Speed Duels, Rush Duels, and Duel Links.
CROSS DUEL is a four-player free-for-all Duel with a primary objective for each player to summon and manage their monsters across three lanes that are linked to each other. Every Duel will only last eight turns, and you will need to master Monster, Spell, and Trap cards in order to stand out in this new era of dueling.
As you progress through your CROSS DUEL adventure, you will form tag teams with iconic Yu-Gi-Oh! characters such as ami Yugi, Seto Kaiba, Jaden Yuki, and Yusei Fudo. These Tag Partners will give you access to unique abilities, cards, and more as you level up. The primary method of collecting cards will be through the Gacha system.
The use of Ace Monsters, which are tied to your tag partners, provides you with special Master Skills, like the Blue-Eyes White Dragons Master Skill, which allows it to destroy a monster upon summon, and Dark Magician deals 300 damage to other players when you activate a Spell.
If the game isn't currently available to download in your region, check back regularly over the next several days because Konami tends to release its games in waves. Plus, all players will automatically receive 1,200 Gems to use in the Gacha system when they first launch the game.
