Leaked new character
A mysterious character that was previously "leaked" and revealed from the datamine files. It does not seem to be a character from a card, unlike the other two characters: Card Trader who gives you cards in exchange for trader items and Tour Bus From the Underworld who gives you Duel Quiz.
What role does it play?
The image seems to suggest that it's a character that works like the card trader, but appears at the rightmost part of town, possibly with a different feature. Card crafting perhaps?
What is card crafting?
Other digital card games have features that allows you to craft cards that you want. Either by fusing multiple copies of cards, or by obtaining pieces/fragments to make a whole.
What is the clock icon?
Looking at the picture shown above, we can see that cards have timer icons on the top right of each cards, presumably indicating time left until they leave?
This is not new. It's been in the game data since Duel Links was released. It's an overcomplicated feature that was thrown out in favor of the Card Trader taking your cards and giving you Gold, Jewels, and Stones.
I thought it was suspicious how the card converter lets you specify how many of a card you want to keep. As it is right now, having more than 3 copies does you no good, but it allows you to keep up to 7 via automatic conversion.
I thought maybe PvP trading might be in the books down the line… but maybe this is an alternative use.
