LOS ANGELES – Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) Booth #800 – May 9, 2006 – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today announced Yu-Gi-Oh! GX (working title) for the PSP (PlayStationPortable) system. Based on the top-rated Yu-Gi-Oh! GX series from Cartoon Network, the game lets players duel in teams of two for the first time with all new characters, monsters and cards from the GX universe.
The first Yu-Gi-Oh! game for the PSP system, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX takes players back to the Duel Academy as they join the Slifer Red dormitory and take on other students from Ra Yellow and Obelisk Blue. This school year, the Duel Academy has decided to hold a different kind of competition, allowing the students to compete in teams of two. Depending on who your partner is, players will earn rewards such as access to the lavish Duel Academy Island for one whole day.
A new way to duel, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX features an original tag team battle system that lets the player switch between two teammates in the middle of battle, each with their own unique deck. The game features more cards than any Yu-Gi-Oh video game ever has, allowing for all new deck and duel strategies. Additionally, each battle is highlighted with an updated duel field, complete with animations for each card. Players can also create their own duel puzzles for endless strategic card-based action. Offering expanded multiplayer functionality, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX lets up to four players compete wirelessly in a single duel at the same time for intense multi-team standoffs.
Scheduled to launch in Fall 2006, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX will be playable at Konami's booth (#800) at the Electronic Entertainment Expo May 10 – 12, 2006. For more information on the game and the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, please visit: www.konami.com/gs.
