Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V Premieres Tomorrow on Teletoon
While everyone is giddy about the Yu-Gi-Oh! anniversary film starring Seto Kaiba, it’s important to remember that a new TV spinoff is almost here. As in it airs tomorrow at 7AM and again on Saturday at 1PM on Teletoon. Yeah, not much of a head’s up on that one.
So, what is Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V?
In season 1 of Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, Yuya Sakaki’s dream is to follow in his father’s footsteps and become the greatest “duel-tainer” in history. Thinking he just might pull it off, he suddenly discovers Pendulum Summoning, a never-before-seen technique that lets him summon many monsters at once. But when countless rivals emerge to steal his spotlight, Yuya needs to gear -up his game as dueling evolves into a non-stop world of action. In the all-new Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, monsters literally come to life with advancements in holographic technology. Duelists no longer stand by and let their monsters battle for them on the playing field – they now ride their monsters as they race through real locations to take down their opponents with their Action Cards!
The series, which premiered in Japan in April 2014, will be the first Yu-Gi-Oh! dubbed entirely by 4K Media. The Konami-owned company picked up the franchise after 4Kids exited from bankruptcy in 2012. I wouldn’t expect a localization drastically different than previous shows though, since 4K reportedly employs much of the same staff that handled prior dubs.
Teletoon has set up an extremely barebones page for the show.
As Arc-V currently lacks a US TV partner, Canada will play host to the English dub’s premiere.
