Bandai Namco has released another action-packed trailer this morning. Today we finally see Yu-Gi-Oh! protagonist Yugi in action in Jump Force.

As expected, Yugi fights using his deck of cards and summoning monsters. The gameplay trailer shows Yugi summon his Dark Magician, Dark Magician Girl, and Slifer The Sky Dragon to face off against the other Jump Force combatants.

Based on what we see in the trailer, it does not appear that Yugi ever physically attacks his opponents personally. He does, however, mimic the acts of his monster (while standing behind them) in order to deal damage.

Also seen with Yugi in Jump Force is his trademark duel disk. This apparatus strapped to his arm allows him to lay the card of his choice down and actually summon his monsters.

Yugi joins other prominent manga / anime stars on the playable Jump Force roster, including Dragon Ball Z's Goku and Frieza, One Piece's Monkey D. Luffy and Blackbeard, Naruto's own Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha, Ichigo Kurosaki and Rukia Kuchiki from Bleach, and several others.

Right now, each IP that is represented in Jump Force has seen more than one character join the playable roster. If you're a Seto Kaiba fan — Yugi's major rival and popular for his wielding of the powerful Blue Eyes White Dragon — it seems like there's a good chance he'll make the cut.

Jump Force is headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2019.
