In light of the current world situation, it is difficult to hold preliminary tournaments, so we will not be holding “Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship Series 2022” this year.
We sincerely apologize to everyone looking forward to the event.
For each Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Game title, we are preparing events and tournaments people can enjoy both offline and online. We’ll keep you updated through official websites, social media accounts, etc. as more information becomes available.

We hope that this is the last time that this event is skipped due to world events. What do you think?
