Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel

Most fans would agree that this game is the word-for-word digital version of the beloved card game. Considering this, plenty of tournament players use this for practice since it can be played on mobile devices. The game also has a large library of cards that are each viable to be played in tournaments and to create practice decks. However, there aren't many other modes for fans to play that aren't already available in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links.

Duel Links has just about every card available and allows for tweaked and speed-optimized rules while letting players play with a limited card pool. This format became so popular among fans that Konami decided to create a physical game mode titled Speed Duel. The differences in formats make this game more popular among players who like to have diversity in their matches.

Even though Duel Links came out prior to Master Duel, Konami has no plans to stop supporting the game to create longevity among the digital player base.
