Yu-Gi-Oh! Wheelie-spins on to Wii
Posted Wednesday, 4/29/2009 by PPNSteve

Konami reveals first Yu-Gi-Oh! title for Nintendo format as racing title based on new 5D's series revs up...

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced its first Yu-Gi-Oh! title for Wii. Entitled Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Wheelie Breakers, the game will be released in the USA on April 19th, and for the UK in September, 2009.Yu-Gi-Oh!ô 5Dís Wheelie Breakers

The Wii game uses characters and situations from the new Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's series, which takes place in the future and revolved around the adventures of Yusei Fudo, the hottest duelist in Neo Domino City.

Based on the 'Turbo Duels' in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's animated series, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Wheelie Breakers introduces players to a fast-paced twist on the racing genre. Yusei and Jack duel in a new motorsport called 'Wheelie Breakers' that combines card dueling with duel wheel racing. As they race around the track in their Duel Runner motorcycles, players call upon monsters from their decks to battle their opponents and prevent them from finishing the race. These cards can then be rearranged between races as strategies to unseat the rival players are developed. Using achievement points which players receive based on their race results, they can purchase new cards and add them to their decks providing upgrades.

Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Wheelie Breakers takes full advantage of the Wii's control system as players use the Wii Remote for both competitive card dueling and Duel Runner racing. Users can also use the Nunchuk during races, allowing for split-second maneuvers including, acceleration, steering and recovery. A wide selection of gameplay modes are also offered including Story Mode, Grand Prix Mode, and Competition Multiplayer Mode with up to four players competing via a split screen system.

As has become traditional with Konamiís Yu-Gi-Oh! titles, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Wheelie Breakers will be released with three official Trading Cards inside the box.

Konami Digital Prevails in Appeal Proceedings against Upper Deck
Posted Wednesday, 4/15/2009 by PPNSteve

Konami Digital Prevails in Appeal Proceedings against Upper Deck

Here is the Press Release from Konami Corporation:

El Segundo, CA (April 15, 2009) -- The Amsterdam Court of Appeal ruled in favor of Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. (KDE) in appeal proceedings against Upper Deck International (UDI). UDI had requested a preliminary injunction to compel KDE to accept UDI as its exclusive distributor for Europe, Oceania and Latin America. On April 7, 2009, the Court of Appeal rejected all of UDI's claims.

Upperdeck LogoHaving reviewed the evidence presented in summary proceedings, a panel of three professional appeal judges issued a decision holding that UDI had failed to show that the 12 December 2008 termination of the distribution relationship regarding the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG) in Europe and Latin America, had been unlawful. The decision confirms that there is significant evidence that links the Upper Deck Company to the distribution of counterfeit Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG in North America. In this respect, the Court of Appeal's decision echoes an earlier ruling by the District Court for the Central District of California, United States.

"This is a terrific victory for the legions of Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Duelists worldwide," noted Kunio Neo, President of Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. "Managing all aspects of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG business directly not just in Asia and North America, but globally, will allow Konami Digital Entertainment to strengthen and protect the integrity of the brand throughout the world."


Under the terms of the court's preliminary ruling, the distribution agreement between KDE and UDI was rightfully terminated as of 12 December 2008. This means that, with immediate and retroactive effect, UDI is no longer the authorized distributor of Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG for all of Europe, Oceania and Latin American territories.

Distributors, retailers or hobby stores interested in setting up accounts for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG in Europe and Oceania, or conducting events or tournaments should contact KDE's European office at yugioh@konami-europe.net. For Latin American inquiries, please contact KDE's US office at +1-310-220-8630 or card-po@konami.com.
