On June 26, Konami answered to users' requests! They will add a new feature, upgrading cards to glossy/prismatic by spending R Jewels. Players will visit Card Trader to upgrade their cards.
Announced on June 27, Konami provided us with the information for the events that are coming this July. There are several events announced, including a new Legendary Duelist at the mid of the month. In addition to the events, there will also be more campaigns, cards, and updates to various features, as well as working on some balancing issues.
Responding to the a lot of requests from users, Konami will set new reward system, and new ranks will be added.
|Rewards||Gems, Golds, and Jewels|
Duel-A-Thon will be held again in Mid July. Durin the event period, you will earn points for "Duel Meter" to get new cards by having duels.
Coming near the mid of the month, there's going to be a new Legendary Duelist! With the only hint being given is that we have to "Heh heh heh... I've prepared quite a show for you."
Since it is not stated that it's going to be an unlockable character, it might be safe to assume that it's going to be similar to event like Yugi Muto appearance event.
While there are many characters in the first generation of the Yu-Gi-Oh! series, one that comes to mind when hearing about the hint, might be Arkana (Pandora in JP).
Arkana was a professional stage magician, who was able to perform elaborate tricks and illusions. He later became a member of the Rare Hunters organization, and appeared in the Battle City tournament to duel Yugi Muto, while also using a Dark Magician deck as well.
Finally Yami Marik comes to the Duel World!? A new Legendary Duelist (LD)
unlock event will be held! "He's finally here, the Duelist everyone has been waiting for!".
|Rewards||New cards, Yami Marik? (Playable), gems, and other items|
A new Legendary Duelist will be unlockable this late July. With the hint that he's a character that everyone has been waiting for, and that the character that appears in mid July will have a connection to this event. If the mid July character is a villain that Yugi's gang has dueled in the anime/manga, then odds are, it could be Yami Marik.
Yami Marik is Marik Ishtar's alter ego, similar to Yugi with Yami Yugi. Marik is the leader and founder of the Rare Hunters, whose aim was to get the egyption god cards, and revenge on the Pharaoh. He was later overtaken by his alter ego, eventually becoming a popular antagonist, one that people have been hoping to come to the game ever since the game's release. There are also images, and sound files of him already in the game, along with his appearance at Jump Festa 2017.
