4K Media (Konami) Confirms Overseas Release of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V AnimeFebruary 7, 2014 at 5:13 pm | Posted in ARC-V, English dubbed, Konami, Yu-Gi-Oh! | 8 Comments
It was only a matter of time before the official announcement came. Today, 4K Media (Konami) confirmed that the newest Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series, Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V (pronounced “arc five”), will premiere in Japan this spring and will make its way outside Japan at an as-of-yet unnamed later date.
4K Media, who owns the rights to manage, market, and distribute the Yu-Gi-Oh! property outside Asia, also uploaded to YUGIOH.com the international logo for the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V series, pictured above. Curiously, it does not incorporate the redesigned Yu-Gi-Oh! logo created in June 2011 for the 10th anniversary of the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG, unlike the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL logo.
Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V will follow the adventures of a new protagonist, Yuuya Sakaki, and will introduce a new method of dueling. A date for the show’s premiere in Japan has yet to be formally announced.
On Facebook, 4K Media assured fans that the English dubbed and subbed versions of Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL will be completed.
