Exclusive: Konami on Speed Duel GX: Midterm Paradox

Published on: 12th October 2022

Konami tells Toy World why Yu-Gi-Oh! Speed Duel GX: Midterm Paradox appeals to all kinds of players, making it the perfect stocking filler.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG is hugely popular: players across the world have enjoyed collecting iconic cards, building powerful decks and duelling one another for more than 20 years.

Introduced in 2019, Yu-Gi-Oh! Speed Duel is a specialised version of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG. In Speed Duel, players start with half as many Life Points compared to a TCG Duel and use smaller decks and duel fields with fewer Monster, Spell and Trap zones. Whether players are existing Yu-Gi-Oh! anime fans or complete newcomers to card games, Yu-Gi-Oh! Speed Duel is designed to be the perfect introduction to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG.

Konami gave Toy World readers three reasons why Yu-Gi-Oh! Speed Duel GX: Midterm Paradox is an ideal addition to any holiday line-up, highlighting the game’s simple ruleset which is fast, easy-to-learn and fun for all the family. Additional benefits are the fact that players can duel straight out of the box and that the game is the ideal, accessible entry point into the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG.

“Viewers young and old have been charmed by the Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series for decades, and those viewers have a lot of love for Yu-Gi-Oh!” the team explained. “GX. Midterm Paradox lets fans play as beloved characters from Yu- Gi-Oh! GX in an innovative and engaging way.”

Launching soon, Speed Duel GX: Midterm Paradox features over 100 cards and contains four complete Speed Duel decks that are ready for play straight out of the box.
