When is YuGiOh Master Duel out on mobile?

The cards are('n yet) in your hands

If you’re wondering when YuGiOh Master Duel is out on mobile, you might have to wait just a bit longer.

Konami’s latest spin on the card-dueling series shadow dropped January 19 for console and PC, and while mobile was promised, it was conspicuous only by its absence. It's beginning to roll out in some regions, though, so it shouldn't be much longer until Master Duel on mobile is available worldwide.

When is YuGiOh Duel Masters out on mobile?

Konami released Master Duel on mobile in Japan on January 27 and will be staggering the rollout in other regions. Expect more details soon.

At the very least, there’s no question Master Duel will come to mobile – at some point. Mobile analyst firm Sensor Tower reported the card battler genre was the only mobile game genre to experience significant growth in 2021, especially in the U.S., and YuGiOh Duel Links led the pack, so to speak.

Duel Links generated nearly $120 million in revenue worldwide, and while Master Duel is generous with its Gems, the tutorial and daily quest Gems run out pretty quickly. The potential for money-making is just as strong with Master Duel as it was with Duel Links, and having it on mobile only makes sense.

Once YuGiOh Master Duel on mobile is finally out, you can transfer your save data to Android or iOS and link accounts to pick up where you left off. That’s good, since you won’t want to go through the arduous task of picking a starter deck and amassing new cards from secret packs all over again - especially since unlocking secret packs is completely random to begin with.
