In “Den City” where the latest network has developed, people were dueling day and night in the VR world called "LINK VRAINS" managed by SOL Technology Inc. The main character, Yusaku Fujiki is a quiet high school student with a great insight. He has been dueling, transforming himself into his avatar "Playmaker", to battle the "The Knights of Hanoi” that plots to destroy "LINK VRAINS".

Shin Yoshida and Ken'ichi Hara are returning from previous Yu-Gi-Oh! anime to work on series composition and character design, respectively. Masahiro Hikokubo is again handling the duel layout. Yūki Matsuoka (Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V) is serving as sound director, and Shinkichi Mitsumune (Yu-Gi-Oh!) is composing the music.
