WCS2019 is an event that determines the world’s best Duelist in three categories, Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG All Ages, Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Dragon Duel and Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links. Many remarkable matches were played at the 2018 World Championship in Japan where three new World Champions were crowned, Wang Chia Ching in TCG All Ages, Charley Futch III in Dragon Duel and Takahiro Hamada in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links.
Based on the official Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links brings the popular game to life on mobile devices and on PC. Duelists can kindle the spirit of Yami Yugi, Jaden Yuki, Yusei Fudo and other beloved characters from the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise in competitive card battle action.
The Yu-Gi-Oh! series is based on the manga Yu-Gi-Oh! (by Kazuki Takahashi), which was serialized in SHUEISHA Inc.’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine from 1996 and is now on the sixth iteration of the “Yu-Gi-Oh!” animated series (currently airing on TV Tokyo-affiliated channels). KONAMI released the first console game in 1998, and the series, including the trading card game, is still enjoyed by countless customers worldwide. KONAMI continues to develop and distribute a wide range of Yu-Gi-Oh! content to deliver the fun and excitement of the series to customers around the globe.
