Video Games - Gameboy Advance - Stairway to the Destined Duel
The third Yu-Gi-Oh! title to appear on the GBA in the U.S., Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition:
Stairway to the Destined Duel offers seasoned veterans of the series updated rules and more than
1,000 cards. Like its predecessors, this iteration thrusts players into a series of battles,
this time under the guise of the Battle City Tournament. As an anonymous duelist, players begin
the title by selecting a deck from the three offered (Red, Green, and Black), before setting out
to stake their claim as the best Duelist in the world. Like Yu-Gi-Oh! The Eternal Duelist Soul
before it, every significant action taken, be it talking to one of the locals or dueling,
advances the calendar by a single day.
Particular duelists, events and tournaments will only take place on certain days and only once
certain conditions have been met.
With that in mind, players will need to explore the various districts that make up Battle City,
in order to seek out rare duelists and more powerful cards. To aid you on your quest, each week your
character is rewarded with five new cards, courtesy of a subscription to ‘Duelist Weekly.’ As an
added bonus, every defeated opponent yields a new booster pack for your deck. The Card Import
system returns in this iteration, allowing players who own the physical decks to import their
cards by inputting the codes printed on each one.
