Konami has announced a new partnership with Antoine Griezmann, French professional footballer and 2018 World Champion, as he becomes an official ambassador of the massively popular Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG).
For the first time ever, a collectible and playable card inspired by the game’s latest ambassador will be added to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME. Antoine Griezmann will be actively involved in the card’s development, ensuring his ideas are represented as the final design is determined.
This unique card is planned for release in products later this year. Following this, it’s also planned to be made available in the mobile and PC title Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links.
As an ambassador, Antoine Griezmann will also be involved in other marketing efforts for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME as it continues to grow.
Antoine Griezmann said, “It’s really an honour to become the Ambassador of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME, as this licence has always been something that I have loved since I was a kid. It has always shared essential values that are needed in everyday life: perseverance, courage and above all, friendship.”
Naoki Morita, President at Konami Digital Entertainment, B.V. said “KONAMI is proud to have a long-standing association with the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME and to now be partnered with a highly talented and passionate person, such as Antoine Griezmann. We look forward to the next step of this unique partnership.”
