Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links Receives New Update, Steam PC Release Window:

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links has been rocking for about a year now, and Konami plans to keep the train going with a new update to the game on September 28th. This new update adds the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! GX series to the game, adding new playable locations and missions, as well as the different archetypes that came out of the GX series, such as Elemental and Destiny HEROs, Cyber Dragon and more. Players will also be reintroduced to Judai Yuki (Jaden Yuki), “Manjome Thunder” Jun Manjome (Chazz Princeton,) Asuka Tenjoin (Alexis Rhodes) and the rest of the GX-era characters. Personally, I wonder if we’ll get introduced to the Japanese 4th season characters as well.

 

In addition, Konami announced that Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links will be receiving a Steam PC release in December. It has been confirmed that mobile players will be able to retain their collections on the Steam version of the title, and the title will offer cross-play between iOS/Android and Steam PCs.
