update 27/06/2017

Card upgrade feature

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.

July events

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.

Ranked match revamp [Early July]

Responding to the a lot of requests from users, Konami will set new reward system, and new ranks will be added.

Duel-A-Thon [Early July]

DateMid July
RewardsGems, 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.

New LD [Mid-July]

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.

DateMid July
RewardsNew cards


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).

Who is Arkana?

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.

New LD unlock event [Late July]

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!".

DateLate July
RewardsNew 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

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.

Those glossy upgrade prices are absurd. Think about it; a standard box has 200 3 card packs. So you get 600 attribute stones if you scraped everything in a box.

Guys theres a new voice added to the title screen after the maintainence and that voice is exactly like Rebecca's. I think this tells us that the next obtainable LD is her.
This is the episode with her.

Her voice has been on the title screen forever afaik. It's definitely Marik, he's actually an official character listed on the download screen (Rebecca is not,) the in-game notification for the event says "The roaming duelist (Arkana) will lead up to the duelist everyone has been waiting for!" (or something along those lines,) and Arkana has story connections to Marik.

It will be Marik. Play the Arkana event and beat him 7 times. Watch the cutscene immediately after. It'll almost literally give it away (and in the best way possible too).

The prices for the card upgrade at the trader are hilarious! I play the game for nearly 6 months now and was able to obtain 5,8k rare jewels so far. The price even for 1 glossy card with 1k rare gems is pretty much over the top!
it should rather be like bying the card for the original price, paying rare jewels to make it rare (glossy) and paying e.g. SR jewels to make it SR (foil). But paying 2k rare jewels is an hilarious joke to my mind. Not to mention, that only those cards can be upgraded that are available at the trader at the moment. Let's say you manage to achieve 2k rare jewels for your desired card to become foil and before you can acquire it, it's rotated out from the trader...
Good idea, horrible doing, (not) well done Konami

I guess they wanted to keep the prismatic as something of great value. Think about it, they're meant to be really rare cards. If it was cheap, the whole point of prismatic cards would've been lost. I still think they exaggerated, but it still has to be expensive.

People saying to keep the other generations out, what they don't know that is completely irrelevant because half of the cards that's in the current game was featured in yugioh GX!

Also you're extremely dumb. Stuff like Knight of the Red Lotus and Heavy Knight of the Flame is way later from the original generation; cards are broken in a case by case basis, not by their release date

I still don't see how a card that's like 20 years old is unbalanced but whatever you say, Edgar

Seriously you have no knowledge about yugioh, pot of greed is broken cuz it's the best card in every flim situation, you always get one more extra card for free which could potentially setup threatening combos.

I know that, but at least stop commenting "keep other generation out" on all duel links sites. That's really annoying and childish

Majority of the information here is data mined. So while there hasn't been any official "announcement" it's proven to already BE in the game so hold that

Being the code doesn't mean its going to released soon, or even at all.

I really hope that it's Arkana and not Marik because we all know how disappointing Marik's cards would be...
