Microsoft HoloLens brings Yu-Gi-Oh to (mixed) reality

Collectible/Trading Card Games have long been popular even before the mobile gaming revolution, but while most of the franchises n the West, like Magic The Gathering, are your run of the mill card-based games, in Japan they have taken a life of their own.

Now, this isn't a case of Bethesda being jerks and having lied to us all this time, or even one of them not being able to get the feature to work on PS4.
