Yu-Gi-Oh! Franchise Gets New Anime Series in 2020 for 20th Anniversary

New series to "change the history of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime"

Konami revealed during a livestream on Sunday at the Jump Victory Carnival 2019 event that the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise will get a new television anime series that will premiere in 2020. The new anime will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the anime franchise. The below video recaps the six previous anime in the franchise, and announces the new anime, but does not show any new footage. The video teases, "the history of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series will change." (The video starts at 51:02 and ends at 52:10.)

The sixth and most recent anime in the franchise, Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, premiered in Japan on TV Tokyo and its affiliated networks in May 2016. Crunchyroll later began streaming the series as it airs. The anime is ongoing.

Masahiro Hosoda (Heroes ~Legend of Battle Disks~, Nangoku Shounen Papuwa-kun) is directing the anime at Gallop. Shin Yoshida and Ken'ichi Hara are returning from previous Yu-Gi-Oh! anime to work on series composition and character design, respectively. Masahiro Hikokubo is again handling the duel layout. Yūki Matsuoka (Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V) is serving as sound director, and Shinkichi Mitsumune (Yu-Gi-Oh!) is composing the music.
