The wait is over: Konami has officially activated its latest game on the Google Play Store, Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel begins his journey through the first countries. And, although you can’t download it directly from the store, you can install the game’s official APK. We’ll tell you how.

You have been preparing your deck for duels for some time, you have prepared the cards and also your strategy. And it only needed Konami to decide to publish the last Yu-Gi Oh! : the original date was January 19. Yu Gi Oh! Master Duel appeared in console stores; leaving mobile users waiting. And now you can start the duels.

European servers operational, download not yet

Konami continues to be difficult to obtain, although mobile users are one step away from trying the Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel: The Google Play Store has already listed it. As is often the case with major releases, the game suffers from a “soft launch” or country-limited activation. Once Konami has verified that everything is going well, it will extend the download.

It is true that it cannot be downloaded from Google Play yet, but the corresponding APK exists. Since European servers are running, there is no need to use VPNs or use accounts from other countries: you just need to install the Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel, then start the game, finish the tutorial and finish downloading the added data (almost 2 GB). And ready.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is available for download on UpToDown. It is official, works properly and is fully translated into Spanish. Even the letters seem translated; which facilitates immersion in combat.

Once the APK of Yu-Gi-Oh! Just install Master Duel like any other similar file: accept installation permissions from other sources and run the game normally. Once Konami has enabled the download on Google Play, you can update it without losing the game.

Yu Gi Oh! Master Duel

A game at the level of Yu-Gi Oh!

We haven’t been able to test it thoroughly yet. As experienced, Konami has made a title of enormous quality in every way: from the adaptation of the fights to the touch screen, to the animations and sound effects. Duels are almost as enjoyable as real card games.

Yu Gi Oh! Master Duel is suitable for all players, whether or not they are familiar with Yu-Gi Oh! cards. The experience curve felt gradual to us, the in-app purchases don’t get in the way of the game (they make leveling up easier), and the mechanics are well suited to touchscreens. If you were looking for a new game to spend hours on, you already have a great candidate.
