Learn the hidden truth of the Kaijudo Code in Atari's DUEL MASTERS: SHADOW OF THE CODE, the third game based on the DUEL MASTERS anime. Gamers will get back in the card-game dueling with access to all 600 released cards, an in-depth storyline featuring characters from the anime, and more. Gamers have cards from all eight card expansions available in the game, including every card from the basic set up through the Epic Dragons of Hyperchaos cards. In addition to dueling, the game includes a number of quests and other missions, many of which result in players obtaining new and rare cards. The Duel Room, a new feature, is available from the beginning, allowing players to challenge any character they've met during their quest. Plus, once players have beaten the game once, the Duel Room will contain every card in the game. Several new features are available in Shadow of the Code. Tournaments have undergone a change and now sport their own house rules. Gamers will have to learn how to handle each of these 15 sets of specific rules and how they will affect their decks. Some of the rules include not using certain types of cards or using only rare cards. Five new mini-games are also available, as well as a new tutorial and streamlined deck management system. DUEL MASTERS: SHADOW OF THE CODE continues the exciting story of the DUEL MASTERS universe. Sporting all 600 released cards, Shadow of the Code guarantees hours of card-game dueling.
