Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2008 is a video game, and part of the World Championship series.

The game contains most cards present in the OCG up to and including the "Gladiator's Assault" Booster Pack set and some cards that at that at the time were TCG exclusive. It also features online Dueling with friends via the Nintendo DS Wi-Fi Connection.

Blurb[edit]

"Tournament dueling is back with the official software of Yu-Gi-Oh! World Tournament 2008! Battle it out on two exciting game modes: "World Championship" mode, and the new "Duel World" mode, where you can venture through events, meet duel spirits, and buy new cards."

Glitches[edit]

  • The second effect of "Rainbow Dragon" can be activated by the opponent during either player's turn.
  • Due to the difference between release dates for the American and European localizations, cards that were released in the TCG during that timeframe have different names between the two versions.
    • The American localization also has many faulty card texts such as replacing "Rain Storm"'s card text with the ones that belongs to "Elemental Hero Chaos Neos". Most of these are corrected in the European localizations.

Trivia[edit]

  • In previous games, the Egyptian God cards were always either illegal or Forbidden; in this game, they are all Limited for the first time, allowing players to put one of each Egyptian God card into their Deck.
  • Most "Archfiend" cards are absent from the game.
  • Most characters faced in Single Duels in both Duel World and World Championship Mode can be recruited as Tag Partners by defeating them 10 times. Players can also team up with any Ghost Duelist they downloaded.
  • Stone Monuments appear in many areas when the player defeats each opponent from that area 5 times. These Monuments challenge the player to win a duel in which they summon a specific monster, and succeeding unlocks a character from the GX anime as an opponent in World Championship Mode.

Promotional cards[edit]

All the promotional cards that are included with the game are used by Adrian Gecko in the anime.
