Yu-Gi-Oh! The Sacred Cards is a RPG that covers the Battle City arc. It was the first game allowed players to use all three two Egyptian God cards.

Hidden Passwords

The game has two hidden passwords that can be used once per save file. There is also a third password that is exclusive to the Japanese version.

Regional Differences

Japan-Only Password

Hmmm...
To do:
Add voice clip

The Japanese version has a third hidden password. After the password 25232415 is entered, Yugi will say, "Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters 7!" at the title screen. If the save file is deleted, Yugi will no longer announce the game's title until the password is re-entered.

Name Entry Screen

Japanese version Localized versions
DM7JP Name Screen.png TSC Name Screen.png

In the Japanese version, the letters and symbols are split into five sub-categories. The player's name can only be up to four characters long.

In the localized versions, all of the letters and symbols are on one screen, and the player's name can be up to eight characters long.

Name Entry Screen Leftover

In the Japanese version, players can use the Select button at the name entry screen to jump between the five naming sub-categories. If the player presses the Select button in the original North American version, the icon will jump to the fourth empty space at the right of the screen, which originally contained the letters of the English alphabet. Pressing the A button does nothing.

In the European version, pressing the Select button on the name entry screen does nothing.

Card Artwork

The localized versions use the original Japanese artwork for most of the cards rather than the censored artwork used outside of Japan. However, contrary to popular belief, some of the cards in the localized version were still censored. The censorship is inconsistent; for instance, a couple of female monsters had their cleavage removed, but most of the cleavage was left intact. Also, some of the translated text still references the original artwork.

The European version also uses the censored version of Monster Reborn.

Arlownay

A red dress was added to cover her breast.

Destiny Board and Spirit Messages

Strangely, Destiny Board and the Spirit Message cards use censored artwork that is unique to this game. The letters "D-E-A-T-H" were changed to "F-I-N-A-L", but unlike the regular censored artwork, the Ouija board was left intact.

Voice Clips

Hmmm...
To do:
Add voice clips

In the Japanese version, Yugi, Joey, Kaiba, Yami Yugi, and Yami Marik have short voice clips at the start of their turn. Ishizu also has two voice clips when she gives the player Obelisk the Tormentor. These voice clips were removed in the localized versions.

Sacrifice vs. Tribute

In the original North American version, the option to sacrifice a monster is called "Sacrifice". The European version changed this to "Tribute", which is the term used in English Yu-Gi-Oh! media.

However, Ritual Spell cards use the term "Tribute" even in the original North American version.

Type and Summon Names

The names of several Types and Summons were changed between the North American and European versions. The updated Type names match the names used in English Yu-Gi-Oh! media, while the updated Summon names match the names of Attributes in the real card game.

The Summon icons were also changed. Any abbreviated terms are listed in parentheses.

Attribute Names

Multi-Language Support

In the European version, the game can be played in English, Spanish, French, German, and Italian. A new screen was added to accommodate the different languages.

Warning Text Color

If the player tries to overwrite a save file in the European version, a warning is displayed in white text if the language is set to English or Spanish. Otherwise, it's displayed in yellow text. All other versions of the game use white text for the warning.

Revisional Differences

Double Pack Changes

The North American Double Pack re-release has several changes, most of which come from the European version.

  • The term "Tribute" is used instead of "Sacrifice."
  • All cards use censored artwork. However, Destiny Board and the Spirit Message cards still use the game-original censored artwork.
  • The Summon icons match the ones used in the European version. However, the names for the Types and Summons are still the same.
  • Pressing Select at the name entry screen does nothing.
