      It is based on Duel Masters.

      Duel Masters was based on Magic the Gathering.

      Neither of the 3 games are yugioh.

      The only thing in common is a deck of cards.

    YEAH! Today I saw the realise information.
    Working 5-6 years for getting the TCG back to life, now it is happening.
    In the time after Duel Masters ended outside of Japan, we have been making an organisation colled Duelist-1. The organisation made it long way with touarnaments and buying japanese cards befor it did down.
    Now we will get the card game back, I’m glad on all of my followers on YouTubes behalf and for myself. Please never end Duel Masters ever agin.
