Yu-Gi-Oh! Celebrates 25 Years with New Classics Games for Nintendo Switch and PC

Published:

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, Konami has announced the release of digital editions of the classic Yu-Gi-Oh! games for Nintendo Switch and PC via the Steam platform. This includes titles that have never been released outside of Japan.

The highlight of this announcement is the Yu-Gi-Oh! Early Days collection, which will feature a selection of vintage franchise games. While the full list has not yet been revealed, Konami has confirmed that Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters 4: Battle of Great Duelists will be included in the collection.

Originally released on Game Boy Color in 2000, this will not only be the first time the game is available on PC (and of course, on the Switch), but also the first time it will be available outside of Japan.

The announcement was made as part of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters: The Legend of Duelist QUARTER CENTURY event, a celebratory gathering for the franchise, held in Tokyo, Japan, from February 3 to 4, 2024.

For avid Yu-Gi-Oh! fans, this announcement is certainly intriguing, especially for those who have been following the franchise since its inception. While the release dates remain unknown, with the Early Days Collection being referred to as “under development,” it seems we will have to wait a bit longer. During this time, keep an eye out for more confirmed titles that will be part of the collection.
