Into the VRAINS!

So you may have heard that Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution is finally getting an update – and you’re right! However there’s a lot of mixed news out there as to what is actually in the update, as well as what this means for owners of the original Legacy of the Duelist game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC Steam. Today we’re going to break it all down in a quick and simple article for you all.

  1. Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution is a BRAND NEW game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Owners of the original game WILL NOT receive a free update to add in all the new content.
  2. Owners of Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution on the Nintendo Switch WILL receive a free update to add all the new content.
  3. The game will be digital download only on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and will retail for $39.99 or €39.99 depending on your country (other prices to be confirmed – but expect them to be the same price as the Nintendo Switch release).
  4. The update will add over 900+ new cards, taking the total to just over 10,000 – including cards from Ignition Assault, Legendary Duelists: Magical Hero, Structure Deck: Shaddoll Showdown and Duel Overload.
