KONAMI DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT, INC. ANNOUNCES BIG NEWS FOR Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIERS IN LATIN AMERICA FOR 2011

EL SEGUNDO, CA. – (September 20, 2010)
– Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (Konami) is pleased to announce today the company’s plans to adjust the current structure of competitive events leading to the Latin American World Championship Qualifiers (WCQ) .

Konami is opening up Latin America’s National Championships to all Duelists, with no qualification necessary. All Regional Qualifiers in Latin America will now give direct invitations to the Latin American WCQ’s, plus free admission to a Duelist’s National Championship. National Championship tournaments will still be held throughout Latin America, with the winners being awarded paid travel and accommodation to their WCQ, as well as the title of National Champion.

Konami’s goal is to cut down on the number of trips that Latin American Duelists have to make before they can prove their worth at their World Championship Qualifier, for the chance to represent their country at the World Championship. Duelists can now win a Regional event near them, and then travel directly to their WCQ after that, if they choose.
