Yu Gi Oh! Master Duel was a huge success for Yu-Gi-Oh! brand. With many new and returning players, the game features a card pool of nearly 10,000 unique cards with a rich single-player experience and great presentation through soundtrack, animations, and UI.
But the game is not without flaws. With fans asking for more content with only two new packs introduced in the game’s first three months, the map pool lacks the latest versions of the physical game, rendering the meta stale. Speaking of outdated meta, the game’s first banlist announcement caused a backlash after the announced cards weren’t enough to influence the game’s meta. Additionally, the ranking system may also use an overhaul.
Anyway, the game itself managed to attract a significant number of players, which is evident by the 30 million downloads. This is due to the ease of access to the game. Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is available on virtually all gaming devices and in virtually all countries. Players can play the game on their PC through Steam while being able to play on their home consoles. The game is available on Microsoft’s Xbox Series S and Series X as well as the Xbox One. It is also available on Sony’s PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The Nintendo Switch is also a way to play the game. Of course, a big market for the game is on mobile devices and it is available on both iOS and Android.
