Yu-Gi-Oh! Capsule Monsters
Saving the world from destruction week after week is no easy task. So, when Joey wins an exotic trip for four, Yugi and his friends decide to take a much-needed vacation – or so they think! Before reaching their destination, their plane crash-lands in a deserted forest where the gang meets the mysterious Dr. Alex Brisbane, an archeologist who has made an astonishing discovery. Here in a remote area thousands of miles from Egypt lies a great pyramid that contains an incredible secret – a portal to another dimension – the world of the Capsule Monsters!
When Yugi and his friends enter this pyramid, they are magically transported to a dangerous realm inhabited by ancient creatures. Lost in a mystical labyrinth, they must complete a series of trials in order to find the passage back home. It’s a battle for survival as Yugi trades in his Duel Disk for a Capsule Shooter in life-threatening challenges that are so much more than just a game!
