Konami’s virtual trading card game Yu Gi Oh! Duel Links announced the Virtual Kaiba Challenge, a tournament that invites players to battle against popular gaming personalities for a shot at exclusive Yu Gi Oh! prizes and a chance to compete against Virtual Seto Kaiba. This Kaiba duel is unlike any other, as Virtual Kaiba will be voiced by the original voice actor from the American TV series, Eric Stuart, in real time.
The Yu Gi Oh! Duel Links tournament takes place over two days, beginning with Phase 1 on February 11. Gaming personalities Slushii, Kripparrian, and ProZD will take turns hosting the official Yu Gi Oh! Twitch channel starting at 3 pm PST. Viewers who tune in will be randomly selected to duel against each host, where the top three duelists from each stream will advance to Phase 2. On February 12, the nine remaining competitors will then battle Virtual Kaiba on stream at 3 pm PST to compete for top prizes. Fans are in for a unique bout, as Eric Stuart will reprise his role as Seto Kaiba and react to the duel in real time.
The three top duelists who emerge victorious will receive an advanced copy of the Yu Gi Oh! TCG Masterpiece Series: Platinum Blue-Eyes White Dragon, as well as a KaibaCorp briefcase filled with a Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links 4th Anniversary game mat, power bank, commemorative ZEXAL coin, and face mask. The remaining competitors will receive Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links swag and art work.
Those interested in participating can head to Twitch.TV/OfficialYUGIOHChannel on February 11 at 3 pm PST. Folks more interested in watching Eric Stuart’s improv Virtual Seto Kaiba performance can visit the official Yu-Gi-Oh! Twitch channel on February 12 at 3 pm PST.
