Konami has announced that its mobile game, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links, has been downloaded over 40 million times. The company also announced that the game has been on top of the Apple App Store’s free game section in over 65 countries.
In order to celebrate this milestone, Konami is offering 500 gems to every player who currently has an account.
The mobile game, which is based off of the popular anime and card game Yu-Gi-Oh!, allows players to play a slightly toned down version of the real life card game. It also features the entire voice cast from the early 2000’s anime, and allows you to play as popular characters such as Yugi Muto and Seto Kaiba.
Konami regularly updates the game with new events, cards, characters, and more. In the event occurring right now, you can fight Maximillion Pegasus, who, in the anime, is the creator of the popular game Duel Monsters. By dueling him you can unlock new Toon cards and eventually, unlock Pegasus as a playable character.
You can download the game for free on both the Apple App Store and the Google Play store. Konami has been gradually rolling it out to new countries, reaching a total of 150 so far. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links was first released in Japan back on November 17th, 2016, and was then launched in the United States on January 11th, 2017. Just recently on April 12th, it was released in South Korea.
