Atari has today announced that it will release Duel Masters: Sempai Legends for the Game Boy Advance in June. Based on Wizards of the Coast's Duel Masters trading card game and developed under license from Hasbro, the game offers a story-driven experience in which players assume the role of a man who inherits a valuable Duel Masters card from his grandfather and then has it stolen by a mysterious man.
"Duel Masters: Sempai Legends incorporates an engaging combination of strategy, humor, and mystery that we believe will translate into an exciting interactive entertainment offering," said Nancy MacIntyre, vice president of marketing and public relations, Atari's Beverly studio. "We are pleased to work with Wizards of the Coast to bring this entertainment phenomenon from Japan to the US and the Game Boy Advance."
"Atari has successfully demonstrated its expertise in bringing anime properties and trading card franchises to the interactive entertainment sector, and we are excited to be working with them on Duel Masters," added James Szubski, Duel Masters brand manager, Wizards of the Coast. "Duel Masters has already demonstrated its ability to span a variety of entertainment genres, and Atari's Game Boy Advance offering, combined with our trading card game, delivers the perfect vehicle with which to introduce this universe to North America."
