Marking the first Yu-Gi-Oh! game to incorporate a racing mechanic, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Wheelie Breakers takes players on a whirlwind course through city streets and race courses to compete as their favorite characters head to head. Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Wheelie Breakers is based on "Riding Duel" in the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's animated series. Yusei and Jack duel in a new motorsport called "Wheelie Breakers" that combines card dueling with duel wheel racing. As they race around tracks on their Duel Runner motorcycles, players call upon powerful monsters from their decks which they manage before duels to battle their opponents and in an attempt to prevent them from finishing the race by attacking or setting traps. Using achievement points which players receive based on their race results, allow them to purchase new cards and add them to their decks providing upgrades to their Duel Runners or new monsters.
Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Wheelie Breakers takes full advantage of Wii as players use the Wii Remote™ for competitive card dueling and Duel Runner racing. Gamers can also use the Nunchuk during races, allowing for split-second maneuvers including, acceleration, steering and recovery. Various gameplay modes are also offered including Story Mode, Grand Prix Mode, and Competition Multiplayer Mode with up to 3 friends in racing split screen. Also included are three exclusive trading cards bundled in the package.
