We here at Game8 would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Kazuki Takahashi, the creator of the Yu-Gi-Oh manga. His work would go on to become one of the most beloved card games in the world, which can now be enjoyed in different varieties like the card game itself, video gameslike Duel Links and Master Duel, and different generations that introduced iconic characters.
Thank you for creating this card game that defined a generation's childhood, hobbies and passion for their work.
We will keep dueling in your honor.
