Back in February, the game reached the 10 million download milestone. Since then, the game has continued to grow across every platform. As a celebration of the download milestone, Konami is adding 1,000 gems into players’ accounts. To get this reward, the players must log in to their accounts by April 25, 2022.
In addition to the added currency, the game is adding a new story stage into the game’s Solo Mode. The new stage will have a focus on the weather fairies that can affect players’ moves.
The growth of the game should be no surprise based on the popularity of the franchise. Yu-Gi-Oh! Has been a popular card game for two decades where players can buy and earn card packs. In addition to being a popular franchise, Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel features the free-to-play structure, which allows players to instantly download and play the game. This structure allows outreach to players who have not experienced the franchise yet.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is one of the most accurate games in representing the gameplay of the real card game. This game features over 10,000 cards from the long history of the franchise. Once cards are obtained, players are able to challenge the CPU or other players and earn rewards. Rewards can be used at the game’s shop, where players can purchase accessories and card packs that may help their play.
As the game continues to grow, it will be exciting to watch the development of future download milestones.
