Konami has reportedly cut content in Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal World Duel Carnival’s western version. According to various reports, the card trading game – which was released in Europe last week – has been stripped of much of its original Japanese content upon localisation.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal World Duel Carnival originally had up to 40 playable characters, but its character roster has been substantially trimmed to just 12. However, the official Nintendo UK site does stipulate that you can face up to 40 familiar characters from the series, with only 11 playable, oddly. Here’s the reported changes in the western version:
- Removal of device and database modes
- No duellist profiles, photos, ending pictures or music to play when wishing
- All mats and sleeves are automatically unlocked from the beginning of the game
- 12 playable characters in the game, compared to the original’s 40, including:
