International distributor 4K Media Inc. announced on Tuesday that a new Yu-Gi-Oh! movie is in development in Japan. Kristen Gray, 4K Media Inc. senior vice president, commented, “We're thrilled to bring the Yu-Gi-Oh! characters back to theater screens for their enthusiastic fan base.”
4K Media is now shopping for a distributor for all territories outside of Asia, and is promoting the card game and anime franchise at Licensing Expo, which opens in Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, the fifth main Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series inspired by Kazuki Takahashi's original manga, premiered in Japan this past spring. Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Movie played in the United States in 2004, followed by the Japanese film Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time in 2010 to mark the franchise's 10th anniversary.
