Yugioh Legacy of the Duelist has proven to be a yugioh game that is far different from any of its predecessors and when I say different, I mean in the way the game is structured. You know how most games have everything from start to finish; well, Yugioh Legacy of the Duelist sort of works a bit differently which, in my opinion, isn’t completely bad considering that it adds a certain “mystique” to the game.

Incidentally, there’s a lot of dlc i.e. downloadable content in the game that might seem like its worthless or even pointless to buy for a series sake but it cannot be argued that the dlc in the game is optional to some extent. But, I also believe that it is necessary because there are a lot of key moments from the series especially the duels like the duel with Dartz; master of the Orichalcos.

At first, I didn’t see the downloadable content as being worth the price, but I learned quickly that the dlc is part of what makes the game as unique as it is. In this post, I’ll discuss the dlc, their worth if they are at all, the Arc V sector and why filling in the blanks are important. So, without further ado let’s start with the……..

The dlc (downloadable content)

As I previously mentioned, there are some dlc in the game and many of that dlc is conducive with the gameplay of the game. For example, when you make the choice to buy the dlc for Yugioh 5Ds, you’re getting a missing piece of the campaign puzzle in Yugioh 5Ds and you’re getting some card decks to boot whether to use as you see fit or to just investigate the cards.

Much of the downloadable content in the game fills in a lot of the missing series episodes so there’s no hole in the story. Another example is making the choice to not buy the Dark Mist Saga dlc for Yugioh Zexal; Number 96 was trying to take over and corrupt Astral so as to get him to turn on Yuma, that’s important especially for those who’ve never seen the series before.

The great thing about the dlc is that it’s not terribly expensive, I mean if you call 5.00 expensive; I’ve bought quite a few of the dlc for the game and it is, in my opinion, money well spent. I always like seeing where me and my deck measure up against dueling greats like Dartz, Aura Sentia and even Mai Valentine after she was turned to the dark side of the force so to speak.

Is it worth it?

You may get to a point where you’ll wonder if buying the dlc for Yugioh Legacy of the Duelist is worth it; the answer is an emphatic yes. Many of the dlc that you buy/unlock can give you access to some very powerful monsters. Black Luster Soldier Envoy of the Beginning and Shinato, King of a Higher Plane for example.

Having these cards will give you an unspoken advantage in battle which will allow you to banish your enemies cards or deal damage to them by attacking their face down card in defense mode. Much of the dlc in the game are smaller pieces to a greater whole of one of the campaign series, and you’ll be happy you have it when you’re going up against Zane in Yugioh GX for the graduation duel.

My advice is to not get too consumed trying to buy all the dlc because the object is to buy enough dlc where you can be satisfied until you can buy more.

Arc V

Yugioh Arc V is an arc in the game where you’ll have to buy mostly all the dlc for it because the only thing unlocked in the game is the introduction to Pendulum summoning and its a duel between Gong and Yuya. When I first saw this, I was taken away like “why would you have to buy the dlc for the Arc V story so you can “live the adventure?”. I’ve done this over the course of the last few weeks.

The result of doing this is that now my Arc V campaign mode has more of its story filled in which you’ll want to have because since Yugioh Arc V is trending now and the game has the story arc, you owe it to yourself to buy it because the story is simply amazing. Also, you’ll get a lot of Pendulum cards which will allow you to get several monsters on the field at once.

The ability to do this is one you want to master because it’ll save you in duels across every story arc including some of the ones in the past like Zexal and GX.

Filling in the blanks is important

Filling in the blanks is important and the reason why is because in order to get the full Yugioh Legacy of the Duelist experience you’ll need to buy all the downloadable content and again, not all at once. A bigger reason is because you’ll have the satisfaction of getting the 100% completion across every story arc.

Plus, another reason why is you’ll want to fill in the blanks is because the campaign mode looks way better when you buy the dlc for it. I mean, how many of us gamers are okay with having holes in our story mode or campaigns; not many I imagine. Ultimately, everything in the game is important and that includes unlocking the downloadable content for it.

The downloadable content in the game is completely dirt cheap which is a steal because considering how much it is to buy dlc on other PS4 games, you’re getting off extremely lucky not to mention buying the dlc is cost effective. Besides, and if we’re being honest here, no Yugioh game story mode is complete without any of the campaign mode favorites like Battle City, destroying the annoying Meklord Emperor Wisel.


Yugioh Legacy of the Duelist is an awesome game but requires that you buy a lot of the dlc for it so you can get as much out of the game as possible. The downloadable content is worth it because the story mode is very intricate and contains a lot of the stuff that is in the series. Filling in the blanks especially in the Arc V story is the key to getting as much out of the Arc V series as possible which you’ll want to because you’ll score some really cool cards.
