In 2022, Yu-Gi-Oh! is a franchise almost as old as I am, with a global fanbase, multiple series of anime and movies, and more merch than you can imagine. Still, in all this time, the games of Yu-Gi-Oh! have seen few wholesale changes or alternative game modes outside of early 2000s titles like Duelist of the Roses or The Falsebound Kingdom, at least not until recently with titles like Yu-Gi-Oh! DUEL LINKS and Yu-Gi-Oh! RUSH DUEL: Dawn of the Battle Royale!!
Yu-Gi-Oh! CROSS DUEL is set to be the next brave leap forward from Konami’s card game king in a while, daring to change the face of the format again. With the hype behind the card game picking up steam thanks to the success of Master Duel, there’s still lots to find out about what Yu-Gi-Oh! CROSS DUEL will consist of in terms of the core gameplay.
So, we took it to the top to get answers, and we were lucky enough to receive them from Yuya Takayanagi, one of the developers from the team handling Yu-Gi-Oh! CROSS DUEL. We plugged him with questions on the new formats, Yu-Gi-Oh! CROSS DUEL’s monster customisation options, and even got in a quick chance to ask him what his personal favourite card is.
