The North American anime distributor 4Kids Entertainment has announced on Tuesday that it licensed the 2010 3D anime feature film Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time (Gekijō-ban Yu-Gi-Oh! ~Chō-Yūgō! Jikū o Koeta Kizuna). The stereoscopic 3D film marked the 10th anniversary of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime film franchise in January by featuring the main heroes of all three TV Tokyo anime series: Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters' Yuugi Mutou, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monster GX's Judai Yuki, and the ongoing Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Yūsei Fudō. The story brought together the three heroes to fight Paradox, a powerful new enemy who appeared for the first time in the film.
4Kids plans to release the film in 3D theaters in "select markets" in early 2011, followed by a television premiere and a DVD release. 4Kids' theatrical, television and home entertainment rights for the film extend worldwide outside Asia.
