A week after his grandfather goes on an expedition to India, Yugi and his friends win tickets for a holiday. On the way, however, their plane crashes and they conveniently run into the last man to have seen Yugi's grandpa before he disappeared, Alex Brisbane. Brisbane leads the gang to the pyramid the two of them were exploring when Solomon vanished, to then discover a gateway to another world where the Capsule Monsters game is very real, like the Duel Monsters World of the main series. Shortly after arriving, the friends are separated by various wild enemies chasing after them and are forced to assess their situation and work to regroup. A larger plot lingers in the background as Yugi and the others try to figure out why they are in this other world and how they escape
