The Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series is heading to London later this month, and it promises to be a very special event. Not only will it welcome two awesome Yu-Gi-Oh! voice actors, but it will also be the first European YCS to showcase a scripted live duel. Yu-Gi-Oh! voice actors Erica Schroeder and Darren Dunstan will be flying across the pond to host the event, and will face off in a duel as Mai Valentine versus Maximillion Pegasus. Be sure to bring your best Mai and Pegasus cards for them to sign!

YCS London will return to ExCeL London for the fifth time on October 26 and 27 in conjunction with MCM Comic Con London. Duelists can take part in all of the YCS activities, then check out the comic con in the same venue for free. Keep your eye on Konami’s YCS London page for the event schedule and live stream details, coming soon.

Would you like to see more Yu-Gi-Oh! voice actors attend YCS events in Europe? YCS London 2018 welcomed Wayne Grayson (Joey Wheeler) and Jonathan Todd Ross (Marik Ishtar), while YCS London 2017 invited Dan Green (Yugi Muto) and Eric Stuart (Seto Kaiba), though those events didn’t feature a live duel with the guests.

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Comes to Duel Links

In Yu-Gi-Oh! Transcend Game, the Duel Links World is a creation of Seto Kaiba’s that he uses to elevate his mind to a higher plane of consciousness in hopes of crossing over to the realm of the dead. And although Kaiba’s undertaking fails, he is given another chance to pursue this experiment and find Atem in The Dark Side of Dimensions.

…Even though that is merely a story from the mind of Kazuki Takahashi, today, Seto Kaiba has transcended the boundaries of fiction to come to our real-life Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links game. Wild! And quite meta. Are we all just pawns fueling Kaiba’s creation?

Yu-Gi-Oh! fans can now journey to the world of The Dark Side of Dimensions, where they can meet Kaiba, Mokuba, Scud, and other duelists from the movie. To unlock the DSoD Duel World, you, as Yugi Muto, need to win a very special duel against Yami Yugi using a very special deck. For your victory, you will receive a DSoD playmat (pictured above), sleeves, a prismatic Dark Magician card with the DSoD artwork, and more. Once you visit the new DSoD World, you will also unlock the DSoD version of Kaiba and his Blue-Eyes White Dragon.

In Japan, the Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions movie is returning to theaters starting in October for a limited run to promote the game. Yu-Gi-Oh! fans in the West can still buy the movie on Blu-ray and DVD and numerous digital platforms. American Yu-Gi-Oh! fans can also stream the movie on Hulu.

Today’s Duel Links update follows the addition of the 5D’s world almost exactly one year ago.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Season 3 DVD Box Set Available Now

Yuya Sakaki plushie hiding behind Cinedigm's Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Season 3 DVD box set

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V’s home videos have come to an end with the release of season 3 on DVD by Cinedigm. This box set contains the final 49 episodes of the English-dubbed anime, which ran on Nicktoons from January through December of 2018. This Labor Day holiday, why not take a moment to relax with Yuya and his friends one more time as they venture to the Xyz Dimension to try to save their universe?

Cinedigm’s Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Season 3 box was released last Tuesday, August 27, and contains two volumes, each with three DVD discs. You can find this region 1 set for a suggested retail price of $44.99 at your favorite retailer.

This is the first English-language home video product that is branded with Konami’s logo instead of 4K Media’s since the company’s renaming earlier this year.

What Happened to the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Blu-ray Releases?

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Season 1 was the first time any Yu-Gi-Oh! TV series received a high-definition Blu-ray release. Its BD and DVD debuted alongside each other in September 2016. What has happened since then?

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Season 2 was originally slated to see both a BD and DVD release on May 8, 2018. But only the DVD ended up being released on that date. According to retailers I spoke to, the BD release was postponed to June 5, and then again to June 26. Worse yet, the release changed from a typical pressed BD to a print-on-demand BD-R product that cost $89.99, which not all retailers could even order from their wholesaler. And although June 26 was the official street date, few retailers acquired the product in advance, which meant that unless you pre-ordered the set, you were in for a long wait as the discs were made.

And now, Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Season 3 has no BD release at all.

While no one has issued a statement about this loss, it’s not hard to hypothesize what happened. Ultimately, this only reinforces the imperativeness of pre-ordering a video product that you really want, especially if it is a niche title like this Yu-Gi-Oh! spin-off.

It’s not the end of the world though, because season 3 can still be purchased in high definition from all of the usual digital video platforms, like Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Microsoft Store, and PlayStation Store.

As of this writing, Cinedigm has not responded to a request for comment about the lack of a Blu-ray release for season 3.

Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS English Dub Debuts in Australia

The English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS has found another home! The anime debuted today on Australia’s 9Go! under its Go! Kids brand. The channel will broadcast one episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS every Saturday afternoon; check your local listings for the exact time.

Australian viewers who missed the broadcast can stream Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS on 9Now, where each episode is available for one month.

9Go!, formerly known as GO!, is owned by the Nine Network, one of the major free-to-air networks available throughout the country. 9Go! is the same channel where Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V debuted and is currently also airing reruns of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters and Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V.

Australia is the second English-speaking market to receive Konami Cross Media NY’s production of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS; the first was Canada, where the show debuted on Teletoon in September 2018.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! anime continue to thrive, with 4K Media adding more and more English-dubbed series and episodes to more and more platforms to watch for free. Here are the newest updates!

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX (seasons 1, 2, 3) is the latest addition to Amazon Prime Video. On Facebook, 4K Media reminds fans that Amazon Prime now has all of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, GX, 5D’s, and ZEXAL streaming for free.

Tubi TV includes several updates as well. The free-to-watch ad-supported network now carries all seasons of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL. Furthermore, it has added Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V season 2. Earlier this year, you may have seen Tubi add a handful of random GX and ZEXAL episodes, likely in error because those have long since been removed. But this latest update containing the full seasons looks like it’s legit and here to stay.

Since my last update, 4K Media’s YouTube channel has finished posting Yu-Gi-Oh! GX season 3. All this month, the company has continually been uploading more episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL season 1, with episode 31 being the latest addition.

Happy watching, and Happy New Year’s Eve!

Currently, STARZ still has the Yu-Gi-Oh! Bonds Beyond Time and Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions movies.

Duelists young and old, professional and amateur alike, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for! The world of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s is here! Yusei Fudo and his friends today join the smash hit Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links game. With them come the new Synchro monsters and Synchro summoning mechanic.

Synchro what?! Don’t worry, they’re not complicated. But if you don’t know how to Synchro summon, you’ll be able to play a short tutorial after picking up your first Synchro cards that teaches you how to use them.

To gain access to the 5D’s Duel World, you first need to unlock Yusei by reaching Stage 10 in the DM Duel World. Then, complete the Character Unlock Mission of summoning Wind-attribute monsters ten times. As you reach higher stages, you’ll be able to unlock more characters, like Akiza Izinski, Leo, and more.

In Japan, the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s anime will begin streaming on several Japanese video networks beginning on October 1 to celebrate this update. Fans in the West are more fortunate, as we’ve had the entire Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s anime, both dubbed and subbed, streaming for free for the last couple of years.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links’ addition of the 5D’s world follows its release of the GX world almost exactly one year ago.
