Today in the US, KONAMI announced that the latest in the portable version of the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5DS World Championship 2011 Over the Nexus is now available in the US region. Yu-Gi-Oh! is one of the most popular trading card game franchises in the world; with this game being set in the most recent* spin-off series, 5DS.
The game is being published on the original DS system, as opposed to the recent 3DS system. Though, this is probably because the game was released much earlier in Japan and was not built on a 3DS engine. The game features a storyline set in parallel with the hit television show and allows players to duel against the familiar characters from the program as well as new and unique characters introduced for the game.
The games story takes place in a desloate town called Crash Town. Players must make their way from here to New Domino City in time to make it into the World Racing Grand Prix, which is a giant tournament featuring duels and motorcycles.
Yu-Gi-Oh! 5DS World Championship 2011 Over the Nexus features some new and interesting features, such as:
- MULTIPLAYER: Battle anyone, anywhere, anytime via Wi-Fi connection and compete in weekly duel championships each with new rules and live leader boards! - REPLAY: Replay has been added, giving duelists the chance to save a duel and review it again to see where they had the most success or lost! Even see what moves the computer made! - DECK DIAGNOSTICS: The Deck Diagnostics tool continues to give players instant feedback by offering players the chance to evaluate their decks and create better hands for dueling. - DUEL PUZZLE EDITOR: The Duel Puzzle Editor allows players to post questions and answers via Wi-Fi connection while gaining points and rankings. - TUTORIALS: Beginning duelists can jump right into the game with the all new in-game Tutorial that includes instructions in deck structuring and coaching tools to make the best "next move."
