The official website for the 2016 Gekijōban Yu-Gi-Oh! film announced on Sunday that Shunsuke Kazama will return to voice Yūgi Mutō, and Kenjiro Tsuda will return to voice Seto Kaiba 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.

The website has also revealed the preliminary character designs and a visual for the two characters.

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.

Shueisha's V Jump magazine also revealed the designs last month for Black Magician (Dark Magician) and the Blue Eyes White Dragon. The magazine hints that the two legendary Duel Monsters will clash in the film.

International distributor 4K Media Inc. announced last June that a new Yu-Gi-Oh! movie was 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 premiered on the TV Tokyo channel on April 7.
