145 characters will appear from every anime series (including the latest one Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS), and the story mode will let you duel them as you follow the plot of the various seasons.
Online gameplay is also included, allowing players to duel others from around the world. Besides ranked duels, there are also various game models like booster draft.
