March 2020 Update

Changes From Legacy Of The Duelist

  • This game uses the New Master Rules, introduced in Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS.
    • The Pendulum Zone is now on the Spell/Trap zone.
    • You may summon up to six monsters, with the Extra Monster Zone used only by Extra Deck monsters. Each duellist can only use one Extra Monster Zone.
      • Prior to the March update, all Extra Deck monsters couldn't be summoned except in this zone or wherever a Link Arrow is pointing.
      • After the March update, only Pendulum Monsters that are Pendulum Summoned back to the field from the Extra Deck still retain this restriction.
  • This has campaigns for all series up to Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS.
    • This also expands the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V campaign with full narrative scenes and additional duelists.
      • The Tutorial duel now is against The Sledgehammer instead of Gong Strong.
        • During the point where you summoned Judge Man and both Pendulum Monsters destroyed in the previous turn, you instead summon only one of the two. This is because of the above-mentioned Pendulum Summon restriction in the New Master Rules.
  • Monsters have their attack animation play when summoned rather than when attacking.
    • Several attack animations have been added or revised.
  • The PS4 version of Link Evolution has a Platinum Trophy. It is the only Yu-Gi-Oh! game to have one.
    • There are three new achievements/trophies on both XBOX One and PS4.
  • As the position of cards now matter due to Link Monsters, the player must manually choose which zone cards are played in.
  • All cards in the original Legacy of the Duelist had the Legacy of the Duelist logo in the bottom left corner of the cards. This is no longer the case in Link Evolution, so the cards are now identical their real life counterparts.
  • Packs have sound effects when opened.
  • The order of cards has changed, in the original Spell Cards were first, then Trap Cards, then Monster Cards. In Link Evolution, it's Monsters, then Spells, then Traps.
  • Some of the character's Deck lists have changed.
    • When sorted by "Duelist" decks are listed in alphabetical order, rather than by their order in the story.
  • Some cards use different art, such as the Egyptian Gods.
  • This is the series debut on the Nintendo Switch.

  • The game does not include Turbo Duel or Speed Duel rules, modifying any duel using those rules to use the standard rule set.
  • The VRAINS campaign has no narrative scenes.
  • All VRAINS characters use exclusive artwork, due to not being introduced in Duel Links when this game was released.
  • Alexis Rhodes (ARC-V) duels a member of the Obelisk Force rather than the Juvenile Officers.
  • There is no DLC or Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS content planned for the game at this time.
  • If an opponent can Link Summon, they will. They will even Link Summon Monsters they already have on the field using the Monsters on their field - removing field presence for no reason. For example if they have a Link 2 Monster and another Monster on the field, they will use both Monsters to Link Summon another copy of the the Link Monster they already have on the Field.
