Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel: Dawn of the Battle Royale Gets December Release Date for Switch

Konami has announced the release date of Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel: Dawn of the Battle Royale. It’ll be released in the west for Switch on December 7, 2021. Based on the Sevens season of the anime, the card game will feature a different set of rules different from the traditional Master Rules.

Just like the Speed Duels used for Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links, the concept of Rush Duels focuses on making the game faster. As such, you can play many monsters in the same turn and your hand starts with 4 cards. Having less than five in your hand means buying enough to fill a 5-card hand again. There are many other specific rules making it very different from the usual Master Duel format.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Rush Duel: Dawn of the Battle Royale will include new monsters, such as the Sevens Road Magician from the anime. Besides making your own deck from a wide range of cards, players will get to interact with many of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens characters and enjoy a single-player campaign story. There are also both local and online versions of duels so you can play it with friends or challenge strong opponents around the world.

Check out the new trailer which shows a little of the game in action:
