After a brief hiatus, Yu-Gi-Oh! is returning to the world of video games to challenge you to a duel. Grab your deck, dye your hair green, and prepare to summon a whole bunch of monsters in one turn as Konami is gearing up to release not one, not two, but three new dueling games in 2016. Duelists can now take their virtual decks anywhere using their 3DS or mobile device, while the popular browser-based Dueling Network may find itself with some competition as a proper Yu-Gi-Oh! online title is being made for PCs.
Mobile gamers will get their first shot at Konami's 2016 dueling lineup, as Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links is scheduled to launch on iOS and Android devices this spring. 3DS gamers are next up in the summer with a game of their own. Unlike Duel Links, the 3DS game doesn't have a set title and is simply referred to as Yu-Gi-Oh! for Nintendo 3DS. Duelists who have been clamoring for an official PC game instead of participating in Duelist Network will have to wait until winter 2016. Like its 3DS counterpart, the PC game only has a working title of Yu-Gi-Oh! Online Game.
All we know so far is that the three games are coming this year and what platforms they're on. A story-based campaign that follows the anime is likely for the 3DS given previous Yu-Gi-Oh! titles, but it hasn't been confirmed yet. The trio of games is likely in response to Konami's survey from August, but that's just speculation. Konami also announced that Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist and Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Generation will both receive major updates this year, though specifics were again lacking.
