Yu-Gi-Oh! Monster Capsule: Breed and Battle (遊戯王 モンスターカプセル ブリード＆バトル Yugiō Monsutā Kapuseru: Burīdo ando Batoru), frequently abbreviated MCBB, is the first Yu-Gi-Oh! video game, released by Konami on July 23, 1998 for the PlayStation. It features a more well-developed variant of the Capsule Monster Chess game from the manga.
Monster Capsule: Breed and Battle is the only video game to feature Capsule Monster Chess, though Yu-Gi-Oh! Monster Capsule GB features a modified version of the game and many of the monsters from MCBB, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Capsule Monster Coliseum features the spinoff game Capsule Monsters.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Monster Capsule: Breed and Battle primarily features characters from the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. The player raises and trains Capsule Monsters to defeat opponents in a tournament. Opponents include Yugi Mutou, Katsuya Jonouchi, Anzu Mazaki, Mokuba Kaiba, Ryo Bakura, Sugoroku Mutou, Seto Kaiba and Dark Yugi.
Gameplay involves many a number of elements seen in virtual pet games. The player can battle opponents using a team of monsters they own and can strengthen and evolve their monsters.
