Definitely buying the physical as it comes with 3 free cards like they use to do!!! woohooo!!! Also price seems a bit high upfront, but this is "suppose" to have all the DLC. In perspective, this game on PSN is $20 + 17 DLC at $5 each = $105 to have the same value as this Switch version. Also did I mention it also be coming in physical (first time in a long time) rather than digital only? Such a good deal!

But, can I play as Kaiba?

You can in the story mode and you can use him as your avatar for other duels.

I imagine this game has evolved beyond my knowledge of it.

I wouldn't mind a Yu-Gi-Oh game for the Switch, but that price is insane.

V-r0cK (on 22 May 2019)

If you look at my post on here the price doesn't seem as bad in comparison.

It is pretty bad. Some of the DLC in question are story bits Konami decided to exclude to sell separately and the other are card packs, that should've been in the game from the get go. Considering that this is a rerelease of a 4-year-old game, the price is absolutely unreasonable.
