Yugioh video games are relatively fun; in the old Yugioh World Championship games, all you’d do is duel and collect cards, solve tough duel puzzles, etc… After the release of Yugioh Stardust Accelerator and Reverse of Arcadia, players actually followed a specific storyline and could even duel in duel runners! The game, Yugioh 5Ds Wheelie Breakers is a very fun racing game that utilizes monsters/spells/traps as ways of slowing down your opponent(s), similar to Mario Kart. Now, what if there was a Yugioh video game that combined the racing aspects of Wheelie Breakers, the RPG aspects of Yugioh Stardust Acceleration/Reverse of Arcadia, and merged it into an epic 3D game for the three major consoles? I bet it would be the greatest Yugioh game ever created.
This game (I would want it to be named Yugioh: Duelists Origins) would follow an alternate Yugioh storyline that starts after the Dark Signers are defeated. The main player lives in an alleyway in New Domino City as a renown technician throughout the black market. Yusei and co. are introduced to the player through Rally in order to upgrade their duel runners and the player is welcomed to their group. There would be some filler missions here and there but the main storyline would be about (illegal) underground duel racing and how a group of mobsters challenge Yusei and co. and the player in duel races. Soon, the hobby spirals out of the control and Yusei and co. and the player have to fight the mobsters for their lives.
Duelist Origins would be like Assassin’s Creed/Grand Theft Auto minus the violence and other suggestive themes. You would be able to create an avatar and follow a set storyline. However, players can upgrade their duel runners by going into various shops in New Domino City (each shop sells and upgrades different parts), obtain new cards by winning local tournaments, make money by doing missions for commoners or by partaking in duel races, and enter super-stardom by winning big tournaments. The best part is that all the while, players would be able to roam (yes, even ride their duel runners) freely around New Domino City! And if the player is causing too much havoc, a duel race occurs between Trudge and the player occurs. Trudge’s difficulty increases after each encounter and if the player loses, they have to give Trudge half of their savings.
This game is too good to be true, but if something like this did come into the market, I’d be the first person to buy it. As much as I love the Yugioh games that are already out, they get boring since all you do is duel! If you are familiar with the Naruto series, the early Naruto games were just about fighting, but once games such as Naruto Rise of the Ninja and Naruto Ultimate Ninja came out, players could enjoy fighting people and roaming around Konoha. As a result, the Naruto franchise’s sales rose immensely.
Do you guys like Yugioh: Duelist Origins? What are some of your ideas for a new Yugioh game?
