Starter Deck Contents
Within the game, the player can choose to play as a male or female character, thus determining their starter Deck:
- "Future Visions" removes from play Synchro Summons if you haven't Normal Summoned that turn, which does not happen in the game normally.
- "The Lady in Wight" also protects your opponent's level 3 or lower monster cards.
On the island, the player battles the Duelist Corps, whose identity and motive are revealed as the game goes on.
After the player clears the Story Mode, he can continue playing through an alternative story featuring new maps and Transcenders with very powerful Decks. Clearing this alternative Story Mode, new characters can be unlocked at the Free Duel Mode, such as Sherry LeBlanc, Bruno, Lester, Primo and Jakob.
