A new Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel update is live on Nintendo Switch, mobile devices, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X alongside patch notes that reveal and detail everything Konami has done with the update — Update 1.1 — which is a small one. In addition to this, the update has also revealed what’s next for the game as its files have been datamined. No surprise, there’s plenty on the horizon for the popular and free-to-play game.

First, the update itself. According to official patch notes, the UI has been improved at DUEL, MISSION, SOLO, DECK, etc. Meanwhile, new animation effects have been added alongside new functions have been added to deck editing and room matches. And, of course, general “bug fixes” have been made.

As you can see, the update isn’t major, but the files of the update that have been datamined and that reveal what’s coming to the game in the near future are far more consquential. It’s a lot.

It’s important to note that everything above is straight from the files of the game. You can check it for yourself. In other words, there’s no doubting the validity of the leak. That said, it’s important to note that datamining leaks either represent work in progress that’s subject to change or scrapped work. In other words, take it all with some caution. At the moment of publishing, Konami has not commented on any of this. If this changes, we will be sure to update the story accordingly.
