Konami has offered an update for its organized play and promotional events, including the introduction of Remote Duels.
Konami has extended the postponement of all organized play and promotional events through Sunday, May 31, 2020. The decision to postpone is based on guidelines and recommendations by government health authorities, the announcement said.
