This Fall DS owners will be seeing a new Yu-Gi-Oh! game, Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour.
Konami today announced new details on this game from the popular trading card and TV show. Coming out this September, Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour takes full advantage of the Nintendo DS’ touch screen and wireless technologies. Players use the touch screen to navigate a city map to find duel opponents. Once a duel is initiated, the touch screen becomes a 2D card playing field and the battle begins. The top screen becomes a 3D arena that shows monsters rising from their cards to battle for Yu-Gi-Oh! supremacy.
The wireless gameplay makes Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour even more enticing. Players will be able to duel one other wirelessly and trade over 1000 Yu-Gi-Oh! cards. In the single player mode, a “Friendship” feature triggers special in-game events when players register friends as duel colleagues.
Another unique game mechanic found in Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour is “Game Time,” where time within the game advances as you move and take turns in duels. The time of day can affect duelist appearance rates and special events. Less challenging duelists appear during morning to afternoon “Game Times” while more difficult opponents appear during the evening times.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour will be playable at the E3 Expo and will release this September on the DS.
