Starter Decks[edit]



  • Checking the card details of a Link Monster will correctly show it as not having a DEF value. However, checking the card details of any non-Link monster and then checking a Link Monster's details again will result in the last-loaded DEF value being shown. This will persist until either a non-Monster Card is checked, or until the game is closed.
  • The game (very rarely) may crash when attempting to load one of the 3D cutscenes.
