Yu-Gi-Oh! GX: Duel Academy features an extensive world with over 1200 cards.

Players find themselves at the prestigious Duel Academy as a student whose primary goal is to become the King of Games. At first, the player is at the bottom of the ranks in the Slifer Red Room with dropouts and low-ranked students. Dueling higher-ranked students and testing is the only way to progress to the upper echelons of the Duel Academy. Winning duels not only means going through the ranks, however. Winning duels rewards the player with “duelist points” or “DP”, which unlock booster packs to improve their deck.
