MCM Expo to host Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG and DS National Championships

Let the Duelling Begin! Konami Digital Entertainment will be holding the UK Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG National Championship and the Yu-Gi-Oh! DS National Championship at the London MCM Expo at Excel on 29-30 May, show organisers have announced.

Konami plans to use the weekend event as a celebration of all things Yu-Gi-Oh!, showcasing new cards and forthcoming sets, with the highlight being the two main competitions. The trading card National Championship will span both days and is open to all qualified players.

Konami has allocated a playing area that can host up to 364 fans, and a grand knock out tournament will whittle away entrants until one is crowned National Champion, and will go on to represent the UK at the European Championship with the chance to qualify for the World Championship later this year.

Similarly, the Yu-Gi-Oh! DS National Championship will pit players of Konami's Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2010 title against each other on Sunday 30 May. Again, it will take the form of a knock-out competition, with the eventual winner directly qualifying for the DS World Finals.

In addition, the London MCM Expo will host a demo area designed to introduce newcomers to the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game, as well as a challenge zone, where all-comers will be invited to duel against a previous national champion. And if all that isn't enough, screenings of the many Yu-Gi-Oh! cartoons and movies will be held within a bespoke screening area.
