The 20 million downloads is spread across all of Master Duel’s platforms, including PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and Steam.
Master Duel is the most extensive and accurate representation of the actual Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game ever released, featuring over 10,000 cards from its two-decade history.
It was first announced in July last year alongside two other new Yu-Gi-Oh! titles: Cross Duel and Rush Duel.
While it’s also free, Master Duel isn’t yet as popular as Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links on mobile which has achieved more than 140 million downloads.
