How to switch accounts, add friends and organize games

One of the coolest things about Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel are its cross-platform features. Regardless of whether you play on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, or Switch, all of your decks and decks can easily follow you from deck to deck. You can even play with friends on different platforms.

One problem is the kind of game that buries that this can happen. Tucked away in menus, setting up crossplay in Master Duel can be tricky unless you know what you’re looking for.

Which platforms support Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel Cross-Play?


Every platform on which the game has been released supports cross-play:

  • calculator

  • Switch

  • Xbox one

  • Xbox Series S / X

  • Playstation 4

  • PlayStation 5

Mobile versions of Master Duel have also been announced, although they will arrive at a later date. It is expected that cross-play will also work on these when they eventually roll out.

Transfer your account across platforms


Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel has full cross-platform progression, meaning you can play on any platform and your deck, card, quests, gems, progress through the match, secret packageand everything else will always be available. You can also play against players on other platforms.

To set this up, you need a My Konami Account. This is not required to play Master Duel on a single platform, so you may not have it before setting up your account on another.

Once set up, you need to first link your account to the platform you first played the game on. This will be the account that you access through all other platforms. On the main menu of the game, go to the Submenu menu at the top right of the screen and go to “Data transmission”. For some weird reason it’s in the “Customer Support” category.

Data transmission

On this page you will see a QR code and URL. Both point to the same website. Simply visit the address on the device where you have logged into your Konami account or log into your Konami account on the page that opens and you will be asked to pair your account with the platform.

Once you’ve done this on your first platform, you can repeat the process on any other platforms you’d like to play on. You must make sure not to continue with the initial setup before transferring data, or you won’t be able to do so. When you first launch the game on a new platform, you’ll be asked to confirm the language and then taken to the page with the logo screen. From here, open the menu the way the screen tells you to (for example, on PS4, it’s by pressing the Options button) and go to “Data Transfer” on the resulting menu.

From here, it works the same way as on your original device. Go to the URL listed on the page, log in to your Konami account, and pair the device with the account. You may be asked to download some updates to sync, but otherwise you should still do it.

Add friends across platforms

Friends list on YGO

No matter how your friend plays Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel, you will always add friends the same way.

On the main menu, select your profile in the top left corner of the screen (the profile will have your name, icon, and level). This will open your profile card, complete with The nine-digit ID used as your friend code. You’ll need to provide your code and get your friends’ codes to add each other.

To add friends, return to the main menu. At the top right of the screen there is an icon that looks like a handshake and says “Friends”. Select that, and a menu will open listing all your friends and their online status. Click the button with the person and plus icon on the top right and you’ll be greeted with the Search Player screen.

Friend Code

On the ID Lookup page, you can enter your friend’s nine-digit code to find them directly. In Master Duel, you don’t send friend requests – you can follow them instead. If you follow someone, their icon in the friend menu will be a colored one-handed handshake. If you are joint followers, both hands will be filled in and you will be considered ‘friends’.

You can follow the ‘Friend Duel’ together by clicking the cross sword icon next to their name in the friends list.

The second tab on the Search Player page lets you find people who haven’t played with, but share your value as a player. In the Title Lookup tab, you can choose several titles, such as Beginner Gladiator, Relaxed Play, Casual, Terminator, and True Gladiator. This is a great way to find people who like to play Master Duel the same way you do – after all, wanting a laid-back game and playing against a Spike who wants a quick win isn’t all that fun.

How to use the friends room

Friends room

The Friends Room is a hobby that you can invite your friends to join. In it, you and your friends can play and watch each other in a common space and it can be customized to suit any type of game you want to play.

To create a Friend Room, go to the Duel Menu on the main menu and click the Duel Room panel at the bottom of the screen. The Room Match window will appear, where you can create, import, or view a room.

If you create a room, you’ll be presented with a long list of options for how you want your game, such as how many people are allowed to join, how long matches can last, and total Scores Life begins for the game. In future updates, you will also be allowed to use the Alternate Ban and Restrict lists to change which cards are banned, but that are not enabled yet.

Install Friend Room

Once you’ve created a room, you can invite friends (general followers) via the “Invite Friends” button on the right side of the page. Also, if you disable “Room List Privacy Settings” when creating a room, anyone can join through the “Enter Room” menu. Make sure you put comments to let players know what kind of play experience you expect.

If you want to join another room or have completed this room, click the Dismiss button on the right to close the room. All other players will be kicked and you will be free to move to your next lobby.
