Yu-Gi-Oh! Saikyou Card Battle

The latest issue of Weekly Jump reveals Yu-Gi-Oh! Saikyou Card Battle for 3DS.

Due out this digitally this summer in Japan, the 3DS title features a cast of game-original characters (it is unknown if existing characters will appear). Players take on the role of the protagonist, a young boy with fiery hair, as he duels against a number of rivals. There is also a character named Guide-san who will support you in duels (and is similar in appearance to the character on the “Tour Guide From The Underworld” card).

Here are the characters introduced in the scan:

  • Protagonist – The main character and player avatar. Take control of this character and engage in duels agaainst a variety of rivals.
  • Guide-san – An assist character who will support you in duels.
  • Psychic Tendo – A character who makes use of Psychic types to attack by various means.
  • Strong 19 – A power-type character who makes use of high attack power monsters to play out an intense battle.

Given that this is likely the formal unveil of the new 3DS Yu-Gi-Oh! game confirmed earlier this year (unless there are more than one), a western release for Yu-Gi-Oh! Saikyou Card Battle is also planned.
