Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 3 headed to Europe in November


Looks like there is some good news for Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force fans -- Konami is bringing the third installment of the game series over to Europe in November. We've heard that Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 3 won't be headed for the US, so this is also good news for you guys who were hoping for an English port of the game.

The game will feature 3,500 cards from all the recent trading card game packs, such as The Duelist Genesis set. Konami is also promising DLC, in the form of decks or individual cards. Other features include online play where up to four players can duel together via Ad-Hoc and a new Gallery feature. Check out the first screenshots in English in the gallery below.

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 3 not coming to the US


Although the last two games of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force series were released in the US (in fact, the second game was released a week earlier in the US), it looks like Konami will not be bringing Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 3 stateside.

Some of you might think this isn't a big deal, but a quick glance over at GameFAQs shows that one of the top ten forums for a PSP game is Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 2. No reason was given why the series has been discontinued on our shores, but those of you who wish to check out the game will have to start importing.

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force 3 card details and release date

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.

Dramatic Yu-Gi-Oh! gameplay

Konami has shown us PSP fanboys a lot of love. We were so mesmerized by games like Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops that we forgot all about Konami's other games, like Yu-Gi-Oh! The PSP installment takes place in the new GX universe, and will allow players to play against each other wirelessly. The game seems to feature relatively impressive visuals, but the load times seem a bit much. A load screen for every room you enter, and then a load screen before a match seems a bit too much for impatient young gamers. But, at least the characters appear to be over-the-top dramatic, as if they got acting lessons from Charlie Chaplin. The games out in November.

OMG! Yu-Gi-Oh! tag teams the PSP

With approximately 27 Yu-Gi-Oh! games on the Game Boy platform, you'd think that the PSP would get with the trend fad program with its own version of the mega-popular children's card game. Well, in September, Japanese gamers can partake in some widescreen card dueling set in the GX universe. Anyone that remembers finding link cables for the GBA will breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Tag Force will feature four player battles wirelessly. American gamers will only have to wait until November, and the game will feature voice acting and animation from the series, now running on Cartoon Network.
