Duel Links Breaking News
Zexal in Duel Links
update 19/11/2018


Zane Truesdale (Ryo Marufuji in JP) is the top duelist of Duel Academy, being one of the few people who were able to beat Jaden in a duel, as well as the rival of Jaden Yuki in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. Later in the anime/manga, after experiencing several losses and losing hope, he participated in an underground duel where he is then forced to change his ways and eventually becomes "Dark Zane", becoming more aggressive and unforgiving with his playstyle.

Zane is playable at Victory Carnival 2018

The Event was held on July 15 in Tokyo Japan and July 22 in Osaka Japan. Players will get to experience playing Duel Links in a large touch screen!

Zane Truesdale's Deck

During Jump Victory Carnival 2018, Zane Truesdale was included as a playable character for people who went to the event and tried Duel Links section. Here, Zane used a fusion based Cyber Dragon deck with Classic Cyber Dragon cards combined with more modern support. Particularly we saw cards such as Cyber Dragon, Cyber Dragon Core, Evolution Burst, Power Bond, Power Wall, Cyber End Dragon, and Cyber Twin Dragon which are still unavailable to Duel Links players as of now. This may suggest that they will soon be added to Duel Links, which has long been sought after by the community. This also may also suggest that Zane Truesdale himself will soon be playable and come with support focused around Cyber Dragons and not Cyber Dark Dragons.

Cyber Dragons

His signature card is Cyber Dragon, which is an archetype consisting of mostly light attribute monsters. Cyber Dragon shares many similarities to Blue-Eyes White Dragon, with the exception that it is not a normal monster. After his personality transformation later in the series, Zane uses a different deck. While still focusing on Cyber Dragons, they mostly consists of their darkened version.

Note:Atticus and Blair Flannigan are not added to the game yet, but their names were found in the code of the game at least.

Normal Zane?
In July, Jaden/Yubel will be released as an unlock character. We have seen this name as well as a duplicate Zane Truesdale in the GX datamined character list for a while now. But now that we know they are willing to release a duplicate character, could it be possible that the recent rarity changes for cyber dragon and cyber twin dragon were made because they also intend to give us duel academy Zane with these cards as his level up/drop rewards?

Zane is already at the Gate, so you can unlock him anytime.
Biggest thing I hate about Zane; Konami do you seriously expect everyone to spontaneously have Pair Cycroid when you get Syrus? Make the unlock mission more doable so that we can play the game with characters/decks we like.

I know man, you have to jump through so many hoops, I just realised that pair cycroid was a random drop from Cyrus after finally summoning rainbow dragon.
If they made it a level up reward for Cyrus that’d be cool... but rng is always a terrible way to earn a character

It's not like you're at a super-massive disadvantage by having to take a decent chunk of time to unlock a character.

That being said, getting a Pair Cycroid drop is going to be quicker than most Gate unlock events' unlocks anyway. Those usually take days.
Yo we need to add cyber dragon konami. It’s unacceptable to keep using cards that aren’t the real thing. It can’t always work like that because it can easily be destroyed by battle with its low attack points.
