New duels, new challenges!

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH will unleash the latest in its Yu-Gi-Oh! range of titles for Nintendo DS in March, as Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s World Championship 2011: Over The Nexus delivers the ultimate dueling simulation to handheld fans.

The new game is based on the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s TV series and is also the official video game of the Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship in 2011. Skilled duelists will be invited to show their prowess at a series of events, with the very best players eventually picked to compete in KONAMI’s World Finals. As such, multi-player competition plays a big part in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s World Championship 2011: Over The Nexus, offering Wi-Fi gameplay and the ability for up to four players to duel offline.

Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s World Championship 2011: Over The Nexus features over 4200 cards for use in the game, and includes the new‘Storm of Ragnarok’ booster and the‘Lost Sanctuary’ structure deck. The game’s one-player story mode uses characters and situations from the TV show, and the in-game presentation has been streamlined with all-new dual-screen presentation to offer more information at a glance, while a new Duel Puzzle Editor allows users to create dueling situations that can be shared with duelists all over the world via Wi-Fi.

Every aspect of dueling is showcased in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s World Championship 2011: Over The Nexus, and it is the ultimate simulation of the ever-popular TRADING CARD GAME. Its many online options detail the social aspects of dueling, and the collectible nature of the various cards is also perfectly realised– even allowing players to get their decks rated, using given feedback to refine their cards.

As has become traditional with KONAMI’s Yu-Gi-Oh! titles, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s World Championship 2011: Over The Nexus will be released with three official Trading Cards inside the box.
