Yu-Gi-Oh! will be making its long-awaited U.S. return when its latest film makes its debut in theaters. The special screenings will see new and old fans enjoy a brand new journey involving Yugi Muto and his friends. Over the past few weeks, a slew of teaser clips from Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions have made their way online. And, now, a longer piece of footage is out and gives fans a look at a new character.
Over on Facebook, Yu-Gi-Oh! shared a new clip that sees Yugi spending time at his grandfather's shop. Left to his own devices, the hero is seen looking over his Duel Cards and pays special attention to his Dark Magician card.
"No way could I build a deck without this card. You've gotten me out of more dueling jams than I can count," Yugi thinks aloud. However, the boy is taken back when he realizes he is not actually alone. The camera reveals that a young, brunette girl in Egyptian clothing.
"It's lovely, that golden box. It has a kind of lovely glow," the girl, Sera, says.
"Sorry, I didn't hear you come in," Yugi stammers. "You're right; This box is very special. You see, it's where I keep my duel cards. Not every one of them, of course - just the ones that are extra precious to me."
"True," Sera says, "but I think you mean cards extra special to you and extra special to the Pharaoh."
Before the clip fades to black, fans can see that Yugi looks visibly startled by her reference to Atem/Yami, especially since the boy parted ways with the spirit long ago.
Here's the official synopsis for Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side Of Dimensions:
"In Yu-Gi-Oh! THE DARK SIDE OF DIMENSIONS, the stakes have never been higher; the rivalries never as fierce; the risks never so great. One wrong move—one card short—and it's game over for good. A decade in the making, Yu-Gi-Oh! THE DARK SIDE OF DIMENSIONS features new designs and an all-new story from the original creator of the global phenomenon, Kazuki Takahashi. His masterful tale features anime's most beloved characters in their long-awaited return: Yugi Muto, Seto Kaiba and their faithful friends Joey Wheeler, Tristan Taylor, Téa Gardner and Bakura. It's the most highly anticipated re-YU-nion ever!"
Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side Of Dimensions will screen in U.S. theaters on January 27, 2017. In Spring 2017, a new Yu-Gi-Oh! anime is also set to hit televisions thanks to TV Tokyo. The new series will follow a hero named Yūsaku Fujiki as he enters the dangerous world of Duel Monsters.
