Konami Digital entertainment has recently announced a brand new Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading card game tournament series. The details sound interesting, so feel free to check them out down below.
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KONAMI) is pleased to announce an exciting new tournament series for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) debuting August 22 – 23, 2015 at the very first Ultimate Duelist Series Invitational in the Philadelphia Convention Center. The Ultimate Duelist Series (UDS) will give Duelists an opportunity to play competitively year round.
We have been eager to provide our Official Tournament Stores a platform that encourages players to visit stores in order to keep honing their skills outside of our current tournament season. The Ultimate Duelist Series accomplishes that and more and is a perfect complement to our other Organized Play programs already in place,” said Yumi Hoashi, Vice President of Card Business at Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “And now Duelists will be able to play competitively all year, win exclusive prizes, and earn points – it’s a win-win!”
The UDS will run two seasons per year, a Winter Season and a Summer Season, and each season will culminate in an Ultimate Duelist Invitational. In order to earn a spot at an Invitational, Duelists will have to earn a certain amount of Ultimate Duelist Series Points by competing in the many Official Tournament Store level and Premier-level tournaments that award these Points. Because the UDS is tied in to the many levels of KONAMI’s Official Organized Play programs, Duelists will be collecting points from many of the Organized Play programs they’re already participating in – and all-new collectible prizing for the tournament series adds another, unique level to the competition. Duelists will also be delighted to find that the UDS prize structure and variety of prizes all tie together.
