It appears that Konami is now rebranding Yu-Gi-Oh!’s card game away from naming it after each series, and instead using the classic title of “Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters”. The reasons for this remain unknown but the most likely guess is that it’s meant to work as a generalized strategy with Duel Links and the continuing emphasis of The Dark Side of Dimensions and reruns of the original series, to be inclusive to returning older players and avoid the confusion of rebranding the game every 3 years since 5D’s.
