ARC-V - Introduction


ARC-V is the sixth overall World to be added to Duel Links, featuring cards and characters introduced in the titular anime and manga version of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V.

A fan-favorite among the series' versions, ARC-V was the celebration of Yu-Gi-Oh!'s history as a whole as the fifth official generation of the card game, and brought back a number of characters from previous worlds for its anime and manga--like Alexis Rhodes and Aster Phoenix from GX, Jack Atlas and Crow Hogan from 5D's, and Kite Tenjo from ZEXAL.

It also introduced the much-talked about mechanic, and dedicated archtypes, added to the OCG, TCG, and now to Duel Links: Pendulum Summoning.
