Duel Monsters VR is a newly released fan project that aims to put you face-first into the world of Yu-Gi-Oh!, replete with the online multiplayer PvP card dueling made famous is the manga and anime.
Duel Monsters VR supports Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows VR headsets; you won’t find it on Steam or the Oculus Store though, as it’s only available through direct download via the game’s Discord (invite).

This, we imagine, was done to abate any potential take down for copyright infringement, as Duel Monsters VR boldly features monsters, settings, sounds, and characters from the series.
The game, which opened up its multiplayer servers today, is a free fan-made game with no official ties to Konami or series creator Kazuki Takahashi; shortly before today’s v0.0.1 release, the project was tentatively named ‘Yu-Gi-Oh! VR’.
“You get to duel on a Kaiba Corp blimp. You can use Yugi’s and Joey’s decks from Battle City; duel against your opponent just as you would in the show,” says developer Sloth Paradise.
The team has also created a website so you can track your player stats and find other players too, as the game today launched with multiplayer support.
We’ve seen VR fan projects come and go, with projects such a Blade Runner 9732 and loads of Star Trek-inspired creations typically getting the ax within a few days of public release, so you may want to jump in sooner rather than later if Konami decides to pursue a cease and desist against the project creators.
