Konami’s Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel for Switch Gets Release Date

Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel

There are very few Japanese card games that I could think of that have the legacy of Yu-Gi-Oh!. Back at the end of March, Konami announced that they are bringing Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel: Saikyo Battle Royale!! to the Nintendo Switch. The title will be released in Japan on 12 August 2021.

Yu-Gi-Oh Rush Duel: Saikyo Battle Royale!! is the newest entry to the Yu-Gi-Oh! series which feature a ‘Duel Rush’ system, allowing players to summon monsters as often and as rapidly as they wish. The mechanics will obviously differ from other games in the series because of the ‘rush’ nature of the title, but Konami did make sure that fans knew that characters that they have come to love from the series will appear in the title.

On top of the announcement for the release of the game, Konami also announced that they will be releasing special Amiibo cards!
