Rimini to host international Dueling tournament as 2016/17 season begins.
On August 27th and 28th, hundreds of Duelists from all over Europe will make their way to Rimini (Italy) as KONAMI Digital Entertainment B.V. plays host to their latest Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series event. Europe’s strongest Duelists will compete at the city’s Palacongressi venue where only one will become champion. Players will compete in multiple rounds of high-level play over two days, against some of the strongest opponents around.
This is the second Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series event to be held in Rimini in as many years. Players and event attendees were impressed with what the Italian holiday destination had to offer in 2015 and due to their feedback KONAMI decided to host another Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series event in the city in 2016. Outside of the tournament environment, visitors to Rimini can expect to enjoy themselves in this vibrant and exciting city.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Rimini will be one of the first events to award successful Duelists with an exclusive new prize card: Number 93: Utopia Kaiser. Unlike regular cards found in booster packs and other Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME products, Number 93: Utopia Kaiser can only be obtained by finishing in the Top 3 places at a Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series’ Main Event, or by winning a special Public Events playoff tournament.
In addition to claiming the title of YCS winner, the weekend’s champion will take home a prize package that includes a PlayStation 4, exclusive YCS Prize Card and paid travel and accommodation to the 2017 WCQ: European Championship. Duelists that finish high in the overall standings will also earn themselves some highly sought-after prizes. A new Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Game Mat will also make its debut at Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Rimini, and be awarded to the top 32 Duelists.
For those who do not participate in the main tournament there will be several other events to take part in throughout the weekend, including tournaments to win giant Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG cards, Game Mats and other popular prizes, such as additional copies of the YCS Prize Card Number 93: Utopia Kaiser.
As with all international-level tournaments held in Europe, Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series Rimini will feature live and comprehensive reporting so that Dueling fans around the world can follow their favourite players and cheer them on. Over 20 hours of live gameplay, commentary and analysis will be broadcasted on the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG’s official Twitch and YouTube channels, with additional articles and updates shared via Facebook and the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Coverage Blog.
