Though announced a while back, we now have a solid release date and details for Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 3. Like the previous games in the series, this is a card battle game based on the anime spin-off Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. In this case, season 4 featuring characters like Jaden/Judai (and Haou Judai), Yubel, Trueman, Johan, and more. The new game will use the Official Card Game Master Rules while seasonal events and the mail system return from the original Tag Force game. It will also included any new Starter and Structure Decks that have released up until June 2008 in Japan, with a total of 3,500 obtainable cards.
For a highlight of cards revealed so far, take a look here. The official site from Konami is here. Shonen Jump scan is from GAForum. The game will be released September 25th in Japan. No word yet on whether this Tag Force game will make it to the US.

THis is quite fantastic news, I cant wait to see if it does come to US, last time it seemed that we got it around the same time. Also, I am glad PSP Fanboy is covering this, it seems that in other news, people seem to ignore the news of Yugioh.

Yeah I know and “YGO” portable games don’t suck, I've played Tag force games for months.
My only complains are that the story mode still needs some fixes but Tag force 2 almost got everything right but if you ask me these are some changes they should make:
1-Improve the Minigames.
The idea of minigames was cool but the minigames itself sucked. The best minigames was the one where you can shoot bowling balls to each other.
Fast paced minigames like I don’t know some Gradius spin off like the one of season 2 or a paintball minigames could be great.
2-Add Online functions.
The Ds games are great because they are online and I don’t see why we can’t have that on the PSP as well.
3-More duel functions.
Tag duels are cool and everything but a free for all with 4 players would be great and events like defeating all 3 God cards at the same time or something that would be cool.
The Japanese version has voices and everything, seriously add some voices to the American version and music from the show preferable the Japanese songs.
5-Last but not least, fix the story mode.
Tag force 1 story mode was a bummer. Part 1 started good with seasonal events but part 2 and 3 were extremely brief. Tag force 2 almost got everything right except that the first 4 event where exactly the same with each character and getting hearts was too tedious to the point I was tempted to hack my PSP just for the “CW_Cheats” program.
Add more story related events (For example the ones you cut from season 4) and make getting hearts something less tedious or at least make it quicker.

I for one am a huge yu-gi-oh fan and since they have started releasing games for all platforms, i especially have fallen in love with playing on my psp. I have both yugioh gx 1 and 2, and havent stopped playing either, and i continue to play both even though i have passed them... it gives me a chance to constantly think of new things.. I cannot wait for part 3 to be released, i cant wait to see what kind of game play is involved.. a few things i will hope for in this next one is, online game play.. if they opened up the ability to play against others, this games potential would go through the roof.. another thing that would be awesome would be if we could import decks from previous 1 and 2 and have them for certain types of game play for part 3, like online play.. that way you can keep solid formulas and with newer cards tune the decks even better.. Anyway, i cant wait..
