Konami gives us the details about the upcoming Duelist Nexus packs coming to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading card game
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist Nexus

Get ready to enter the Duelist Nexus this summer with the new core booster set! Duelist Nexus features the introduction of a brand new monster type to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME with the Illusion monsters. These powerful creatures cannot be defeated in battle, but can cause destruction to other cards on the field. One such monster, Nightmare Magician, allows you to take control of any monster it battles and destroy any card on the field if another monster attacks.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game is a strategic trading card game based on the Japanese manga and anime series. The game involves players using decks of cards representing monsters, spells, and traps to defeat their opponents. Each player starts with a set amount of life points, and the goal is to reduce the opponent’s life points to zero. The game has evolved over the years, with new rules and card types introduced, including Synchro, Xyz, and Link monsters. Players can also build their own custom decks, choosing from a vast array of cards with varying abilities and strengths.

Being 6’ 4” and Asian, he never really fit in, so he got comfortable standing out. Not only is it easy to find him in crowds, he dabbles in the culinary arts, does a little stand up and improv, and can honestly say Spider-Man is the Jesus-like influence of his life. Kevin Fenix loves dogs, movies, television, comics, comedy, and to shoot people… with video.
