Konami Showcases Social Elements of Yu-Gi-Oh! as the New Nintendo DS Title Uses Wi-Fi Capabilities for Global Dueling
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today announced it will launch Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007 for Nintendo DS on March 20, offering users an opportunity to play the ever-popular Trading Card Game against friends via the Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection service.
The official game of the annual Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship Tournament, the DS title offers a stunning simulation of the Trading Card Game, with users constructing, organizing and dueling using the stylus. Every aspect of the Trading Card Game has been faithfully recreated, and the DS game includes all 1600 of the latest cards, allowing for even more attacking, spell-casting and defending possibilities. Also, owners of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Spirit Caller for Nintendo DS will be able to trade cards between the two games. (After beginning the game, a special event will take place to incorporate card decks from Spirit Caller into World Championship Tournament 2007).
Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007 also includes a wealth of dueling possibilities. An extensive array of options allow for single-player duels against a host of CPU-controlled opponents; Limited Duels wherein only certain cards are available; and Survival Duels where the aim is simply to beat a succession of duelists for as long as possible. The social element of the Trading Card Game is also enhanced via wireless and Wi-Fi modes, allowing players to compete with friends or against players from all over the world.
Wireless games can be played between two players with copies of the game, while the Wi-Fi mode opens the challenge to players from all over. Cards can also be traded and swapped via these wireless options as players look to strengthen their packs, and Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007 also supports the Nintendo Wi-Fi’s Voice Chat feature, allowing players to chat to each other as they play or trade before each duel.
