posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The May issue of Shueisha's V-Jump is revealing on Friday the designs for the Black Magician (Dark Magician) and the Blue Eyes White Dragon for the 2016 Yu-Gi-Oh! film. The magazine hints that the two legendary Duel Monsters will clash in the film.
The protagonists of the new film with a completely original story are Yūgi Mutō and Seto Kaiba of the original manga and anime series.
Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine teases the film's story:
In the past Yūgi Yami and Kaiba have clashed many times!! Yami Yūgi, who resides in Yūgi Mutō's body, and Kaiba will have a duel that bets their prides and accepts each other's mutual experience.
International distributor 4K Media Inc. announced in June 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.”
An HD remaster of the second Yu-Gi-Oh! anime's Battle City arc will premiere on the TV Tokyo channel on April 7.
