We were lucky in the last few months to win a lot of fans of Yu-Gi-Oh! and they have continued to hope for a future where they can play their favorite card game with holograms like anime. However, such advancements are now being stopped because popular streamers can’t continue developing their Yu-Gi-Oh! augmented reality project.
Louis SuperZouloux Andries, an actor from the Twitch, is one of the biggest Yu-Gi-Oh! creators in the country and, in general, on the Internet, bringing the card game to an amazing level of comedy, richness, and energy whenever he plays. This is just his excitement at getting to show off a custom-built Yu-Gi-Oh! AR project that took seven months to complete back in October.
The AR technology involved a custom mat that connects multiple applications on his computer and enables to recognize select cards when placed in the appropriate zones. What do you achieve? The 3D Blue-Eyes White Dragon (or several other monsters) stacked onto the stream as a hologram rang out.
Unfortunately, the hope that Zouloux and fellow collaborators could eventually create such a complex technology easier accessible and utilisable in live-play, has been tainted, since the French streamer hasn’t yet realized how to continue the project.
In spite of the fact that you was excited by my 3D system for YugiOh, many of you were unable to get the approval from the rightful stakeholders, therefore, I am neither able to continue the development, nor to use it.

According to Zouloux, he has spent a lot of time talking to the government to get the approval of development. Regardless of whether through Konami or other channels, he wasn’t able to find a solution to that problem indefinitely.
Since the streamer does not have any rights to the Yu-Gi-Oh! IP, but he’s happy to be cautious, is his voice, and thinks that there’s no need for such a thing to give it a new way to play that game.
The fact that you reached out to me, sharing my video, and engaging with me with my story on a game that I haven’t gotten so excited, Zouloux said. As soon as I saw my idea spread and reach out to the French-speaking [sic] community, it was an experience I never thought I would live. Also, thank you all for supporting me and his ideas.
As far as possible, Zouloux will take some rest of 2022 to calm and discuss the future, and that the hopes will come to a conclusion, but now that he’ll end up with the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! and finally get it back on track.
ADrive has reached out to Zouloux on this 3D AR technology to his new Elestrals card game that has just closed a successful Kickstarter of $11.4 million, does nothing work out on the Yu-Gi-Oh! side of things?
