September events

On August 25, Konami provided duelists with information on upcoming events that are scheduled from early September till mid October.

New Event: Duelist Chronicles: Set sail for the Kingdom [Early September]

A new type of unlock event that is said to be based off the original series. Based on the name this might refer to the Duelist Kingdom arc from the anime and manga. Additionally, we will be seeing a new type of duel and be able to unlock a new playable character, speculated to be Yugi Muto.

Let the Mayhem Begin [Mid-September]

Based on the manner of speech written on the text, the new event is most likely a variation of Rex Raptor, similar to how Super Joey was to Joey Wheeler and Elegant Mai was to Mai Valentine. Based on this, he will most likely be a roaming LD with drops different from the usual Rex Raptor.

New Upcoming Event [Late September]

A new type of event, that has never been released before, seems to be planned for late September.

Speculations:

  • The text reads a "mysterious tower", combined with the fact that this event will most likely precede a Halloween themed event, this event will likely be related to Soul-Absorbing Bone Tower.
  • "Face them with new strategies and techniques" might refer to a new type of dueling or challenges not yet seen in duel links.

Massive Update Incoming! [Late September]

An update planned early on in October, will be adding many new features to the world of Duel Links including:

  • Addition of a new world.
  • Addition of a new character
  • Addition of new missions.
  • Special Login bonus.

Speculations:

  • "Addition of a new world" might refer to the addition of YuGiOh GX, based on the recently datamined image.
  • Since "Addition of new characters" is planned just before October, this might refer to a Halloween themed character, Bonz maybe?
  • "Addiition of new missions" is quite vague, it may refer to a new type of mission that is yet to be seen. Or maybe new stage missions that will increase the stage cap. Worst case, it might only be referring to extensions on the lifetime missions(e.g. Login for a total of 1000 days).
  • "Special Login bonus" is very self explanatory. You login, you get free stuff. Although would this be permanent or a temporary event, similar to card flipper events.

October events

Event: "Duel-a-thon" [Early October]

Duel-A-Thon will be held again in Early October. During the event period, you will earn points every duel, to fill your "Duel Meter". Gather points every day and get daily rewards, accumulate those points over the course of the event to get even bigger prizes.

A new character coming to Duel Links! [Mid-October]

Mid-October would be releasing a character "fit for this time of the year", if we are going with characters from the original series only, this almost 100% confirms Bonz as the new unlockable duelist. Adding to this, the dialogue written saying "Dueling me will give you a spook that will put you in your grave", further solidifies the speculation Bonz will be released.

People need to rewatch the anime. Duke helped drive some of the characters to keep up with Yugi. Rebecca and Duke dueled to protect Yugi and help save the world. They were supportive on the same level as Tea for several episodes of one of the arcs yet Tea was added and those two were more of pro duelist than she was. Duke was all about DD but he was knlwn to duel, we just only saw one fully playou

I do not see how you can doubt Duke, Rebecca, etc. I said back in April Espa Roba would be added eventually. Everyone argued. He is an upcoming roaming duelist and will be unlockable eventually so look at who told ya so. They avoided mentions of Tristian and Bakura Ryou so they may not be added but why doubt others? I mean even Serenity is coming. She was mentioned by name in DL.

They do not mention a duelist and just never add them. We don't have enough female characters and a lot of Yugioh fans are girls. It does not matter if more are boys or not a good number are female. Why deny female duelist? Serenity was mentioned for a reason. They avoided Bonz the first Set Sails and never mentioned good Bakura or Tristian so obviously mentioning her is foreshadowing.

Serenity will never be added. She has no purpose. She does nothing but drive Joey. Rebecca can be good, but not Serenity.

I will give you one reason alone to like GX. Two words: Alexis. Boobies. I think I've made my point. Checkmate.

If we talkn' Elegance, then it's definitely Harpies, not Amazons. Amazons are like the inverse of Spartans & the only things "elegant" about them are their bods & many bloodshed methods.

They technically didn't change Harpie's Brother's name. They merely changed it back. It was never Harpie's Brother in Japanese but they named it that in English and only ran into issues later when Harpies got more support. So they had to change it's name back.

Ok...Harpie Hunter, or even Harpie's Estranged Cousin woulda been better than just Sky Scourge. Now it just seems like another meaningless card like that Tsu-whatever card being meme'd around by the new bloods. :/ *hears Otong's laughter* ...I swear, when me and you duel one day, dat arse is mine. >C

The point is he wasn't a Harpie card so they had to make sure they removed Harpie from his name so they didn't have to write "except Harpie's Brother" on every support card. They had that problem with a few cards. Like Black Dragon's Chick was originally printed as Red-Eyes B Chick but they had to change it when the Red Eyes support came out. Harpie's Brother was never a Harpie.

And now, your favorite GameA chat show, "Anonyboy interprets the news."

GameA has done pretty good with this one.
We already knew about the kingdom, and how it's very likely Yugi Moto.

I also agree with their assessment that Rex Raptor is the rampaging duelist, which is nice, since while dinosaurs were meta months ago, they've fallen out of relevance since.

I'm just going to take their word for the next one about the tower. The only problem I see is that it takes place in September, and they already have stuff planned for spookiness in October.

The "Massive Update" is the one which is the most open to interpret, and people see what they want to see. The GX fans imagine it will be GX, but I personally don't think that makes much sense, for a reason I'll explain later. In all honesty, I don't have a clue what this whole update means. It could mean making the Big Five and Noah Kaiba unlockable, for all we know. Probably not them, but I'm just using them as an example.

Ignoring the self-explanatory Duel-a-thon, I once again agree with GameA. That's Bonz, for sure. The fact that Bonz is getting added is where my argument against GX comes in. I see no reason to add a character exclusively from Duel Monsters after GX has been added. I mean, sure Duel Monsters and GX take place within only a few years of each other, but it just wouldn't feel right for me. Also I liked Duel Monsters more than GX, so there's my bias as well.

Many people whine over GX and other series being added so it makes since, if they were going to add them, to still keep some series 1 characters to add after that so we don't feel like we will never see a series 1 event again. I assumed GX would be Jan earlist but it does seem like GX coukd be in Sept and I disagree with people saying no based only on us not having every series 1 character added.

I know that... but GX is an entirely different series, years after the Original. Duel Monsters takes place over a period of 4 years, if I'm not mistaken. It's kind of a big leap to move forward in time from then to GX, and that's not even to mention the wealth of characters from Duel Monsters not yet added.

Your argument doesn't make any sense. how do they doing massive update just for noah unlock event. and it says ''characters'' that means they will release a bunch of character

"Massive" could mean practically anything. It could be Noah, it could be GX, it could be something else. No one here knows for sure. I use those because I view them as the two most-likely scenarios.

Imagine if we got Yugi Moto for the new playable character and we get 2 Union Attack as level up rewards

These boxes are being released too frequently. I mean, I guess it's cool and all, new cards and archetypes all the time but it's getting difficult to obtain the necessary cards. And I spent money, so I'm not a f2p.

However the events are great. Farm skill, farm new cards, obtain a lot of SR and UR jewels, gold. At least the trader is not a problem.

yes, it's too frequently, it's like once a month, but if say you are spent money and considered yourself as NOT FTP player, then just save your money between $200 each month, so you can get all the cards. problem solved.

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.

Hm, the German version calls the duelist from the first announcement ingenious, that sounds more like it could be Noah. After all this is a virtual world...

But could they be a bit more innovative and not have us go to Duel-a-thon yet again? Why not repeat the puzzle event again? Duel-a-thon is really boring.

What about season 5? The German guy. The one with pink hair? He is described as elegant. I think it could be Zigfried.
