Released earlier this year as a slimline version of one of the world's most popular TCGs, Yu-Gi-Oh, came to mobile devices in the form of Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links. This winter, it's coming to PC too.
Quickly racking up tens of millions of downloads, it seemed to reunite a playerbase that had fragmented since the series' introduction in the early 2000s thanks to its 'back to basics' approach and reintroduction the its original cast of characters.
Now, presumably at this year's Tokyo Games Show, it was announced that a version of Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links built specifically for PCs is in development and planned for a Winter release. Whether that runs into the early months of next year is anyone's guess, but lets hope its something of a Christmas present. Save data will freely transfer between the two, so you can properly pick up from where you left off on either device.
Details of the upcoming PC version are very sparse at the minute, as the announcement came alongside news of the main Duel Links app changing to Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links GX on September 28 as characters and cards from the series' first sequel/spin-off arrive - like Elemental Hero cards and the Cyber Dragon set.
While a PC version of the game will be good news for most, some players already run the full mobile version through the popular BlueStacks Android emulator on their Windows machines - though playing in a locked portrait few leaves a lot to be desired. We can imagine the official Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links PC app will come with landscape/widescreen support, but we'll have to wait for the finer details.
Hopefully it isn't just a browser app akin to GranBlue Fantasy.
