Yu-Gi-Oh making it to Steam when Legacy of the Duelist releases this Fall

Legacy of the Duelist

Of all things, Konami are bringing Yu-Gi-Oh: Legacy of the Duelist to PC. This info was buried in a presser for New York Comic Con plans surrounding the Japanese children’s card game / TV show, saying that a large update will accompany the game arriving on Steam. That DLC will be unveiled at NYCC.

Legacy of the Duelist is a full digital version of the Yu-Gi-Oh game, along with campaign elements focused on the plotlines of its various anime since 2000. It’s currently $19.99 on the Xbox store, with DLC packs sold for $4.99. Presumably it will maintain that price on Steam. While I haven’t played this one, the handheld games have generally been good value, with a massive number of cards available, total deck customisation options and an accurate transfer of the rules engine from real life.

Other info on the PC version is a little thin on the ground. The full post is over on the Yu-Gi-Oh site. Here’s a trailer for the console version that launched last year:

In case you were wondering, the best series of Yu-Gi-Oh is Zexal and Zexal II. They are both legitimately funny and quite well written, with no small amount of self-awareness. I know these are the in-depth critical opinions you come to PCGamesN for and I’m happy to provide them.

I'm pretty sure I've played some Yu-Gi-Oh games on PC when I was a kid. I had one called ''Joey the Passion'', but there were Yugi and Kaiba games too.

"Yu-Gi-Oh making it to PC for the first time"

Because the Power of Chaos series and Yugioh Online totally weren't things? Also: "In case you were wondering, the best series of Yu-Gi-Oh is Zexal and Zexal II. They are both legitimately funny and quite well written, with no small amount of self-awareness."

...Zexal's first season is absolutely abysmal both in duels and character arcs, and while Zexal II improves on some aspects, it's entirely inferior to the first half of 5D's and the second half of GX.

Glad about the game coming to PC, though. I hope they make it a bit faster than it was on consoles.

Whoops, thought I'd checked back far enough - will make a small edit.

5Ds is very bad, however.

The first 64 episodes of 5D's are about as quality as a show about children's card games can possibly get. The writers changing after it and ditching numerous plot elements made it go down the drain afterwards, but those first 64 episodes are pretty much the best Yugioh has to offer.
