Yu-Gi-Oh! Tournament Finals 2005
The online digital card game Yu-Gi-Oh! is looking to crown a US champion. 16 of the nation’s best duelists will be pit against each other to decide which five players will travel to Japan to compete against the top players in the world.
“Through this tournament, we are supporting the Yu-Gi-Oh! community by giving the best duelists around the country the opportunity to show off their skills, share in their experiences and prove who will be the ultimate Yu-Gi-Oh! video game champion,” said Geoff Mulligan, chief operating officer of Konami Digital Entertainment America.
