Fans have been waiting a long time to see how the shop will operate Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel. And, with today overview video from Konami, they currently have some store-specific details — no word yet on microtransactions.
Some aspects of the store have been blurred out, which likely won’t spoil future revelations, but fans are noticing that a variety of bundles will be available to purchase using Gems, in-game currency for Master Duel.
Gems can be earned through completing quests, challenges, and other in-game events, though there is likely to be an announcement soon on how microtransactions are introduced into the system.
Users can purchase an individual pack from the sets they need to build their collection in the Store’s Packages tab. The menu of each pack will show the marked cards from that set, the odds to pull said cards, and what each pack will cost.
The Stalwart Force Pack featured in the Regular Pack overview includes powerful meta tags like Eldlich the Golden Lord, Borrelsword Dragon, and Pot of Desires. Each pack will cost 100 Gems, but you can also buy 10 packs for 1,000 Gems and guarantee yourself at least one Super Rare card at no extra cost.
Players can also purchase entire decks from the Structure Decks tab, allowing them to easily build around certain archetypes with relative ease. And, unlike in Link Duel, you can purchase up to three copies of each Structure Deck using the Gems alone — at least in the build used for the overview.
Each copy of the Magician of Pendulum Structure Deck costs 500 gems in the trailer.
Additionally, the Accessories tab gives players access to their Friends — monsters that represent players on their chosen Arena. It also hosts areas where the user can purchase different Arenas, Guard Cards, and Symbols.
There is also a Specials tab in the store, but the video is not related to it. It will probably only be available when promotions or direct sales in Master Duel.
Along with the store details, we’ve also confirmed that some sort of public spectator mode will be available in Master Duel, allowing users to watch matches from around the world in a number of capacities.
The ultimate overview trailer for Master Duel will release on January 19, where TGS Anime will take a look at the game’s Duel Mode and give players a look at what they can expect from the platform’s core feature.
Master Duel is set to release for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Steam, Nintendo Switch, mobile phones and “”many other platforms“In the winter of 2021, that means it should drop at some point before the end of March. And if that final overview trailer is any indication, it could drop sooner rather than later.
