The film will open in Japan during Golden Week 2016, and it will open later in 2016 outside of Japan.

Yu-Gi-Oh! manga creator Kazuki Takahashi is in charge of the film's script and character designs, and is also serving as chief production supervisor. Satoshi Kuwabara (Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal II) is directing the film. Shunsuke Kazama will return to voice Yūgi Mutō, and Kenjiro Tsuda will return to voice Seto Kaiba as the stars of the film.

Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine teases the film's story, which takes place six months after the end of the manga:

In the past Yami Yūgi 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.

4K Media announced in June 2014 that a new Yu-Gi-Oh! movie was in development in Japan.

Update: The official English Yu-Gi-Oh! website has posted the English version of the trailer, which was previously shown at Comic Con International last weekend. Thanks to ravegrl for the news tip.
