Konami Digital Entertainment announced that Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links will become available for free on Steam for PC on November 17.

If you’ve been keeping up with multiplayer mobile games over the past couple of months, you may have noticed the resurgence of Yu-Gi-Oh!. The game found its niche by scaling back the always-expanding library of cards and providing fans (many of whom are not familiar with new iterations of the show and new card packs) with some classic cards and the ability to battle each other and bots to unlock new cards.

And while Yu-Gi-Oh! is not necessarily new to consoles and PC and has had previous games on the platforms before, Duel Links’ poppularity–with more than 55 million downloads– may bring a similar resurgence to a wider player-base. An important thing to note is that the game is allowing players to transfer their progress in the mobile version of the game, meaning you can retain the heart of the cards, even though you’re changing platforms.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links is currently available on iOS and Android and will arrive on PC on November 17. You can check out more on the GX Update here. Similarly, you can read more about how the game has achieved applications success in downloads here.
