Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2008 is a video game, and part of the World Championship series.

The game contains most cards present in the OCG up to and including the "Gladiator's Assault" Booster Pack set and some cards that at that at the time were TCG exclusive. It also features online Dueling with friends via the Nintendo DS Wi-Fi Connection.


"Tournament dueling is back with the official software of Yu-Gi-Oh! World Tournament 2008! Battle it out on two exciting game modes: "World Championship" mode, and the new "Duel World" mode, where you can venture through events, meet duel spirits, and buy new cards."


  • The second effect of "Rainbow Dragon" can be activated by the opponent during either player's turn.
  • In previous games, the Egyptian God cards were always either illegal or Forbidden; in this game, they are all Limited for the first time, allowing players to put one of each Egyptian God card into their Deck.
  • All the promotional cards that are included with the game are used by Adrian Gecko in the anime.
  • Most of the "Archfiend" series of cards are not available within the game.
  • After you defeat an opponent 10 times, they are added to your Tag partner list.
