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.
Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2008 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 avalable in the TCG only. You can also Duel your friends online via the Nintendo DS Wi-Fi Connection.
Rainbow Dragon's second effect is activated by the opponent during either player's turn.
Elemental Hero Rampart Blaster cannot activate its direct attack effect.
Arcana Force Ex - the Light Ruler, under the name "Arcana Force Extra - The Light Ruler", is the only Arcana Force monster in this game.
All the promotional cards that are included with the game are used by Adrian Gecko.
The following are all missing Fusion Material Monsters in the game:
