Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007 Heads To DS, Wi-Fi Included

February 28, 2007

Konami announced that 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 handheld’s wireless and Wi-Fi facilities.

The official game of the annual Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship Tournament, the DS title will let players make, organize, and duel using the stylus. The game will feature all 1600 of the latest cards, allowing for more attacking, spell-casting and defending possibilities. Also, owners of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Spirit Caller for DS will be able to trade entire decks between the two games and, after beginning the game, can access every card in GX Spirit Caller via the game’s card recipe.

Other options include 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 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 on Nintendo’s Wi-Fi Connection.

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 before each duel. Finally, in keeping with previous Konami titles, the game also comes with three limited edition Yu-Gi-Oh! cards for use in the card game.
