Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution Coming to More Platforms

More cards and more platforms for the most recent game in the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise.

In the latest issue of Famitsu, Konami revealed that Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC some time in spring 2020. The card game will arrive alongside a new update for the original Nintendo Switch version.

The Switch update was previously said to feature 15 new characters from the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRains anime series, as well as a large number of new cards that will bring the total number of cards available in the game to more than 10,000.

The most notable feature in the update, however, will be the rule change to the Master Rules, which will once again allow monsters from the Extra Deck, such as Fusion, Synchro, and Xyz, to be placed in any Main Monster Zone or Extra Monster Zone.

Additionally, face-down Pendulum Monsters can be summoned to any Monster Zone when not specifically Pendulum summoned.

Previously, only one monster at a time could be summoned from the Extra Deck, due to each player only having one Extra Monster Zone. This could be circumvented by summoning Link Monsters to those zones, which allow for the summoning of other Extra Deck monsters to any zones they point to.

While this new update is unique to Link Evolution, the game itself is an expanded version of the original Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist, which originally released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on July 30 and July 31, 2015, respectively, and on PC via Steam on December 7, 2016.

Yu-Gi-Oh!: Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution originally released on April 25, 2019 in Japan, and on August 20, 2019 in North America and Europe.
