Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel has been a massive success for the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand. With many new and returning players, the game features a card pool of nearly 10,000 unique cards with a rich solo mode experience and great presentation through the soundtrack, animations, and user interface. \
But the game isnt without its flaws. With fans asking for more content with only two new packs introduced in the first three months of the game, the card pool does lack the latest releases from the physical game making the meta stale. Speaking of stale meta, the first banlist announcement of the game caused backlash after the cards announced were not enough to sway the meta game. Also, the ranked system can use an overhaul as well.
Regardless, the game itself has been able to hook in a significant amount of players which is obvious by the 30 million downloads. That’s due to the game’s ease of access. Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is available on virtually every single gaming device and in virtually every country. Players can play the game on their PC’s through Steam while also being able to play on their home consoles. The game is available on Microsoft’s Xbox Series S and Series X as well as the Xbox One. Its also available on Sony’s PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The Nintendo Switch is also a way to play the game as well. Of course a big market for the game is on mobile devices and its available on both iOS and Android.
