Jump Force is set to D-D-D-Duel when it releases in 2019, with the addition of Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh! to the roster.

Bandai-Namco’s Jump Force is fast shaping up to be the ultimate video game celebration of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 50-year publishing history. Joining the previously announced Sasuke Uchiha, Frieza, and Roronoa Zoro is the long-anticipated Yugi Mutou, the second most important character from Yu-Gi-Oh has finally been confirmed to be appearing in the upcoming versus fighting game.

After solving the millennium puzzle Yugi unleashed and befriends a heroic ancient Egyptian spirit known as Yami Yugi that occupies his body surfacing in times great need (Shazam-style). In Yugi’s world pretty much every problem’s solution is a children’s card game. Yugi’s transformations and card abilities should make him an interesting addition to the 3-on-3 gameplay.

Now that the floodgates have been opened for Yu-Gi-Oh’s many varied characters, hopefully, Bandit Kieth will be following suit not too long from now. In America!
