Yu-Gi-Oh recently took the opportunity that a new anime series was in the works via the latest Jump FESTA, with Yu-Gi-Oh Go Rush set to explore a brand new universe of dueling and the monsters that lie within the heart of the cards, but it seems as though a new piece of merchandise is taking us back to the past of the series. Takara TOMY Arts shared a new look at “Duel Disc Rings” that will be hitting vending machines in Japan, recreating one of the biggest technological creations of Seto Kaiba and Kaiba Corporation.
Yu-Gi-Oh has seen plenty of merchandise released over the years, with the card game that is such a tenant of the anime being played in the real world. Though real-world card tournaments have hit a snag as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, causing a number of tournaments to be canceled as a result, the series continues to be a major part of the world of anime. Kaiba himself, the man responsible for creating the duel discs, might not have made any appearances following the conclusion of the first season, but his legacy continued in a number of unique ways in the future of the franchise.
Takara TOMY Arts shared a new look at the upcoming rings that will be made available in Gatchapan machines in Japan, letting fans of the long-running series wear duel discs on their fingers that first originated in the initial season of Yu-Gi-Oh, Duel Monsters, which introduced the world to the popular card game:

Each of these rings will retail for around $3 USD, not breaking the bank for Yu-Gi-Oh fans by any stretch of the imagination, though there has been no news regarding these unique rings making their way to North America any time soon. With the technology created by Kaiba still having a part in the anime’s universe, it will be interesting to see what role, if any, the tech plays in the upcoming season of the franchise that introduces us to a number of new duelists.
