Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links: How To Unlock Arkana

The latest update to Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links implements Battle City , where duelists play through important scenes from the Battle City arc in the original Yu-Gi-Oh! Anime. This is similar to Duelist Kingdom, where duelists traveled around a board to gather coins, cards and duel various characters in order to defeat Pegasus (and unlock young Yugi Muto ).

In the same fashion duelists unlocked Yugi Muto in Duelist Kingdom, Duel Links players will now be able to unlock Arkana and his spellcaster/Dark Magician support.

Here’s all the information you need to get through Battle City and unlock Arkana.


The Battle City event transports duelists to a game board where they move using dice rolls. Duelists win dice by defeating other standard and Legendary duelists, as well as the Vagabond. Players also receive dice by participating in PVP battles and completing certain tasks, like playing three PVP matches.

On the game board, duelists roll a three-sided dice by relinquishing seven dice that will only allow players to move one to three spaces. There are spots on the board that you can’t pass; you will stop there no matter what you roll. These spots are duels based on the anime.

There are also special spaces for story moments and for obtaining Support Items. Support Items are essentially dice where you can choose how many spaces you move, from one to three.

This update also introduces Millennium Coins, currency you can win by landing on the special coin space or by fulfilling certain requirements in a duel. These coins are used to play the Card Lottery where duelists earn gems, coins, keys and rare cards.


It’s rather easy to unlock Arkana in Duel Links. Duelists simply have to make their way through the first round of Battle City.

There are four zones with 15 spaces in each. Make your way through duels until you defeat the boss of each zone. To unlock Arkana, you’ll just have to make it through all of Round 1, which shouldn’t take a lot of time if you put in the effort to collect as many dice as possible.

Defeat Brainwashed Joey twice in the final zone to complete Round 1 and unlock Arkana.
