All these numbers, although impressive, do not fully reflect the game's popularity. Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel also debuted on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5.

The developers are also planning to release the game on iOS and Android mobile devices. These versions, however, will be released after some time.

The game's success should come as no surprise. The original card game is very popular, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel recreates both the rules of the Asian Official Card Game (OCG) and the Western Trading Card Game (TCG). On top of that, it offers extensive story campaigns in addition to multiplayer.
