Background of Yu-Gi-Oh!
The Yu-Gi-Oh! series was a Japanese manga turned anime that sees follows the story of a young boy named Yugi. Yugi loves dueling against friends and foes in a very intricate card game “Duel Monsters”. After he finds and solves the ancient Millennium Puzzle, he becomes host to a strange and powerful spirit. During his duels, he transforms into an older version of himself, when the spirit takes control. The two form a very close bond and friendship, going through many hardships together.
For fans of this series, this is a welcome announcement, and he looks pretty sweet so far from what we’ve seen. As a long time fan of both the Manga and the Anime series, I am excited. I grew up with this series and am very much intrigued by this announcement. The good thing is that it is going to be across all platforms, which gives players a chance to play it on the go as well.
