ICv2 reports that 4Kids Entertainment will launch its newest anime franchise, Dinosaur King, with a North American premiere during Fox Network's 2007-2008 season on Saturday mornings. The Sunrise-produced anime (which is called Kodai Ōja Kyōryū D Kids Adventure in Japanese) is based on an arcade/collectible card game hybrid from Sega. 4Kids has "Americanized" the characters' names (although many names were already changed for the card game) and redid the soundtrack. Funimation will release the dubbed adaptation on DVD. The game version uses scannable barcodes on the cards, similarly to Sega's own Mushiking.
