KONAMI have also confirmed that there will be an "Online Program" showcasing news and information on all their Yu-Gi-Oh! properties, including:

What hasn't been announced is WHEN this will be taking place, and HOW. At last year's JUMP FESTA 2021, KONAMI had two seperate online programs. One dedicated to the OCG and DUEL LINKS, the other to RUSH DUEL. With the prior event revealing information on DUEL LINKS' 4th Anniversary Celebration as well as the first tease of MASTER DUEL as a new Digital Title in development.

We should be receiving a full schedule closer to the start of the event - so keep your eye's peeled for more information as and when we have it!

Could this finally be the reveal of MASTER DUEL's official release date?
