It was announced on Saturday at Comic-Con International: San Diego, that the brand new movie from the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, titled Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions, will premiere in Japan in Spring 2016.
The movie is set to take place six months after the story of the manga and will feature original characters from the franchise, such as Yugi and Seto Kaiba. According to Kazuki Takahashi, the original creator of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga series, some of the characters and monsters will be redesigned.
It was revealed during the panel that the movie will feature a new threat comprising a new villain with powerful cards. It was also referenced that Kaiba will be a centerpiece to the movie's plot. Other characters set to return include Jonouchi (Joey), Anzu (Téa), and Bakura from the original series. It was also mentioned that the new cards will be released for fans to actually purchase.
The new movie will be celebrated as part of the manga's 20th anniversary.
Oh i like that the characters are from original Yu-gi-oh.Anything that is after duel monsters is just fake and bad i watched like 1-2 eps and i couldnt stand it. Might watch this for nostalgia even tho yu-gi-oh is very cringe if you watch it now.
Nice to know it'll focus more on Kaiba. I mean the original Yu-Gi-Oh is one of the only shows to have an even amount of focus/development on the important characters throughout the series, not just the main duelist, but rivals ftw :>
By the title and context, it seems to be related to Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, since it has been uniting all the previous series with alternate dimensions. My bets is that it will focus on the dimension similar to the classic series
that guy with blue hair when i first saw him i thought he was yusei but when i looked closely he looks like jesse maybe he could be the villian of this story since it is confirmed that kaiba and yugi are the main protoganist and is yami going to appear i hope they focus more on yugi since he rarely gets to do things by himself
joey,anzu and bakura iare also appearing and the creator said that joey and anzu has changed a bit too.
i hope mai is in this movie to and i really hope that she and joey are back together again
but to be honest for me its kind of confused since gx takes place 10 years later and when kaiba and yugi appeared in gx we saw that yugi has changed alot but not kaiba but in the movie poster why does kaiba looks more muscular than he was in DM and GX series
it says that the movie takes place six months later
Kaibas duel disk looks like yuto and shuns duel disk and by the time of DM,GX and 5ds the duel disk werent that advanced than it was in zexal and arc v i wonder where he got that duel disk
maybe they are going to add some arc v shits in this movie and explains how the dimensions got split and i really hope that all the series takes place in standard and are arc v characters going to appear. i am pretty sure arc v will end in 2017
