Well, it seems like after over a year of no real changes to the game whatsoever, KONAMI is finally bringing us a new version of the game, Yu-Gi-Oh! ONLINE 3.

Key points:

*FREE open beta will start December 18th, 2009

*Your accounts will be reset during the beta, but your Yu-Gi-Oh! ONLINE 2 accounts will be restored when the beta is over.

*Once the beta starts, you will be required to download the Yu-Gi-Oh! ONLINE 3 client if you want to keep playing the game.

*Will feature several new packs from the 5D's era, including The Duelist Genesis and more.

*Will feature 5D's NPCs to go alongside the NPCs from Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX

*Full 3D graphics, and certain monsters will get summoning and attack animations.

*The game is apparantly dropping the Power of Chaos engine in favor of the Tag Force engine.

*KONAMI promises to bring over many features from the World Championship series for DS.

Discuss.

Hope they speed up the duel pace, things are very very slow right now.

Honestly, it's not really any slower than playing online on the World Championship series for DS. Still, a speed boost might be nice.

On a lark i decided to come to this forum to see if there was mention of a new versions
Back when i was playing actively I was getting a little tired of no new pack releases and no word of if they were even working on an expansion
THEN I FOUND THIS THREAD

very happy and I've already started re-downloading YO2
just wanted say hello and thank you

CHANGES I WANT IN THE NEW VERSION

interface interface interface
I'd like to be able to play in a window with an alterable size
I dont like playing full screen games

also maybe some changes in talking in an area and the friend system
im spoiled by warcraft so im very demanding
but a social system like that would be much easier to use
and add alot of depth and fun to the game

I've already started re-downloading YO2

You know that the YO2 updater won't be able to install Yu-Gi-Oh! ONLINE 3, right? Whenever they release a new version, you have to download the full game again off the official site...

I know
I just haven't played it in so long
and I gave up on the game when they stopped adding packs
so i uninstalled yo2

i understand ill have to get the new version off the site once it comes out

the only reason i want to start playing again NOW is because I want to see what cards i have and what cards I don't, in case we're allowed to keep them after the transition
though if we weren't i wouldn't care

it would be worth it to have syncro's and zombie world

Yes, you get to keep all the cards you had before the transition, EXCEPT during the beta period. During the free beta everyone will have their collections reset, but after the beta, everyone's YO2 collection will be restored.

BTW, I believe you can still open all the YO2 packs after the game switches to YO3, so you wont be missing out on many (if any) YO2 cards.

So the official site finally updated their info:

It seems that in Online 3, even after the beta period, duels will be FREE! All you have to pay for now is cards! That's great news!

Looks like I'll finally have a reason to check this out again.

Do they still eat your account after 6 months? Because I'm pretty sure I've used up both "Ryusui" and "TheRyusui" and I'm not sure what I'll use if both of those are gone for good.

Those ideas are theoretically possible, if, for example, the cosmos hated us.

Unfortunately, yes.
