    The world's fate is in the cards in Duel Masters: Kaijudo Showdown.

    Features

    • Duel with 300 Duel Masters cards
    • Unlock five minigames
    • Battle head-to-head and trade cards using a Game Boy Advance Game Link Cable


    Duel to discover the secrets trapped in artifacts. You star as an apprentice duelist. Your brother, Sam, gave you his Duel Masters card collection before heading off on an archeological expedition. He will need your help!

    Using his cards, you will duel your way from local shop tournaments to becoming a world Duel Masters champion. By defeating opponents, you increase your card library with booster packs.

    Significant enhancments since Duel Masters: Sempai Legends GBA include an extensive tutorial (which you can skip) and a handy PDA, the Gizmo, that displays all your stats and stores prebuilt decks.

    The Gizmo also serves as a complete reference to the card game. Along with a glossary of terms, the Gizmo contains explanations of card types, special abilities and deck-building and game strategies. The Gizmo also lets you trade with a friend via the Game Boy Advance Game Link Cable.

    The main duel interface is similar to that of Sempai Legends. Ulike the last game, though, your character wastes no time getting into duels, tournaments and trading, which are the game's strengths.

    Bottom Line

    Duel Masters: Kaijudo Showdown greatly improves on its predecessor. Fans of the first game should really enjoy this one.
