Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel Will Launch Sometime This Winter

Konami revealed this week that they plan to release Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel sometime this winter, but they weren't very specific beyond that. The news came down during Tokyo Game Show 2021 where the company announced during a special 20-minute livestream featuring brand new gameplay, that we will be seeing the game next season, but didn't put an official date to it. We're guessing the decision was made because they're still finalizing the title and have yet to properly confirm when it will be complete. So we're guessing the move was done to give them wiggle-room between December and February in case they need extra time without confirming a hard date and having to push it back. They also revealed during the event that the highly anticipated collectible card game will also feature a single-player Story Mode. Considering they've boasted that the game will come with over 10,000 cards over the history of the franchise, it's a pretty safe bet that you'll be playing through the history of the series.
