During the 2017 Tokyo Game Show, Konami confirmed that YuGiOh GX will be added to Duel Links on September 28, 2017. The new update will add a new world and new unlockable characters.
The GX world is said to be themed after Duel Academy, the setting where majority of the GX anime and manga took place, similar to how the Duel Monsters world is themed after Domino City. In this new world, the standard duelists you will battle are the students of Duel Academy belonging to the Slifer Red, Ra Yellow and Obelisk Blue dorms.
As of now, there are already 4 confirmed unlockable characters: Jaden Yuki, Chazz Princeton, Alexis Rhodes and Aster Phoenix. All four of them are complete with their own signature monsters that have summoning animations, and dialogue for iconic cards they have used in the anime and/or manga.
Jaden Yuki as the main character of the GX series is one of the first playable characters. He uses an Elemental Hero deck with Elemental HERO Neos as his ace Card.
A skill called "Stage to Fight for Heroes" was revealed during the 2017 TGS. This skill activates skyscraper to your side of the field, although the activation condition is still unknown.
As seen in the video, Chazz's ace card will be Ojama King, which means that his starter deck will most likely be filled with the vanilla Ojama monsters.
Alexis will be using her Cyber Girl deck composed of Cyber Angels and other female Cyber monsters with Cyber Blader as her ace monster.
During a stream by Hokka Hokka VJump, a skill for Alexis Rhodes called "Cyber Angel Call" was revealed. Not much is known about this skill, but it might work similar to the Paradox Brothers' "Guardian Call" based on it's naming sense.
Considered to be Jaden's greatest rival, Aster Phoenix uses a Destiny Hero deck which he claims is the anti-thesis to the Elemental Heroes. His ace card is Destiny HERO - Plasma.
At the end of the video we see Bastion Misawa, who will most likely be the first event only character for the GX world. Bastion's ace card is Water Dragon.
For a brief moment in the video, we can see Vellian Crowler, as a playable character, draw his signature Ancient Gear Golem.
Konami announced that it will be releasing Duel Links for PC, so players will be able to play Duel Links on their desktops when it releases winter this year. The game will be cross-platform compatible, meaning you can use one account for both your PC and smartphone just not both at the same time. You can also duel people using PC from your smartphone and vice versa.
To fit the screen of a regular monitor, the layout of the PC version will have 3 columns. In the center, the duel will be displayed similar to how it is viewed on mobile. On the right, will be the descriptions of the card you selected. Then on the left, is a duel log similar to what you would see when accessing the duel log from your menu on mobile.
