    The release date is set for August 20th.

    During SDCC, I saw this game demoed at the Konami booth. I've been waiting for YEARS for a game like this. I just hope that you don't start out with crappy, ancient cards from old sets and have to build up your deck by playing useless matches against scrub opponents. That issue plagued the other portable (Gameboy, NDS, etc.) games. I loved YgoPro for the Android, which gave you access to all current cards, but they kept getting shut down for obvious reasons, so I stopped playing.

    It's too bad that this game didn't happen when I was still playing the physical card game. It would have been cool to play competitively while still actively involved in the YGO community. I stopped playing when Shaddolls were the big thing. My one claim to fame is topping a Regional tournament with a pure Lightsworn deck back when Gladiator Beasts and Dark Armed Dragon decks were huge. I kept the mat as my trophy and the deck. All cards in that deck were blinged out to their highest rarity, but I sold just about all of my other cards.

    Unfortunately I don’t have a Switch and because my main reason for wanting one (Pokémon Sword) is currently off the table thanks to Game Freak’s bombshells 2 months ago (#BringBackNationalDex), I currently have no intention on getting one.

    However, I am currently busy with Duel Links on my phone. If anyone wants to add me on there my username is PrfctCell and my Duelist ID is 816-439-993.

    Excellent, I've been looking for a chance to recreate my childhood memories of drawing literally the worst combination of cards at the start :lol

    I doubt it lets you play some of the old broken card combos that use to exist.

    Exodia! Obliterate!

    Every time I get a new Yu-Gi-Oh video game, the first thing is for me is to get the exodia cards asap.

    But I don't use them online. I stick with Dinosaur, machine and zombie decks.

    You know this game has been around for ages, right? This is an updated version of course, but the game originally came out like four years ago. Third time I'll be buying this game actually, but looking forward to it as I haven't played for a while and will likely get more use from it on the Switch anyway.

    If anyone is interested, my switch ID is in my signature.

    I can hold my own but I'm expecting my win/lose ratio to be mostly on the lose area.

    I pre-ordered mine from Gamestop. I wonder if they'll match that deal with a gift card of their own.

    A tip I found that most likely everyone knows but can serve as a reminder for Link Evolution:

    If you are looking for certain monster types or spell and trap cards, in campaign mode (in example) I'm looking for machine cards, I select the battle of Joey vs. Bandit Keith, immediately surrender and you'll get 1 card from his card pool and anywhere from 600 to 900 points. It's tedious but you get more points in 10 minutes surrendering at the start of a duel than finishing a duel.

    Have fun.

    I haven't played yet, but are you given a decent deck to start out with or do you have to build it up by dueling scrubs like in the GB, DS and 3DS games? Those games were fun, but I hated starting out with crappy, beatdown decks from nearly 20 years ago.

    It starts you off with a "Basic Starter Deck" and the only cards available at start to make a warrior or machine deck.

    Unless you make a deck based on attributes. Then there are enough for a dark, fire, earth or wind deck.

    Good amount for a synchro, Xyz or pendulum deck.

    That tip is good. In less than 10 minutes I got 20000 points.

    Remember how in the past you couldn't save a deck unless you have a least 40 cards in that deck? You can save them now even if there are less than 40 cards. It just displays a little wrench next to the name meaning you are working on it.

    In single player mode, in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Series campaign, after defeating Seto Kaiba in the duel number 2, you unlock the card shop and unlock Grandpa Muto booster pack at 200 points per pack, 8 cards per pack.

    More packs become available as you play the campaign.

    When in the campaign, you have the choice to use the story deck or your own deck. Seemed cool at the first 3 duels but then you realize you're better off with your deck.

    Update: that tip, again sorry if annoying, after doing that at least 50 or more times, the character will stop giving you reward cards.

    Some of the duels are a bit challenging. The others are cakewalk.

    The duel against Yubel is the longest and trickiest duel I've faced.

    The only way I could win was being in a cycle. I set A-Assault Core and gets sent to the GY only to have it come back to my hand and summon again while Yubel keeps drawing cards until it ran out of cards.

    But it was really fun. I'm half way through the 5D's story.

    Update 8-27: the final match in the 5D's series was brutal. I counted 22 tries to defeat Zone with my machine deck but those Timelords destroyed me.

    Until I created my Exodia Deck with help of 3 Heart of the underdog cards. I went through my deck until I drew the last card of my whole deck. I think I only won because I used 3 Swords of revealing light cards to buy me some time.

    On to Zexal.

    Ok, I'm stuck in the Arc-V story. I can't beat Crow so I'm asking fellow Duelist if you all can advise me decks you use in the game to beat Crow and help to beat Yuri and Jack Atlas.

    Beating Jack Atlas in Arc-V will unlock the final booster pack in the Arc-V series in the card shop.
