4Kids brings Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s: Road to Destiny around the globe
Yu-Gi-Oh! has long since become one of the most popular franchises of all time, launching first as the anime series in Japan. Since debuting in America, the phenomenon exploded, catching on as a trading card game (TCG), video games, books, posters, etc. The series even eventually broke out into sequels and other series, like Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and later Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s. Now, 4Kids Entertainment is bringing the series to more places, including RTL2 in Germany and Mediaset in Italy – both providing a home in Europe to Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s: Road to Destiny; Televix Entertainment aims to do the same in Latin America. In the US, the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s toon also returns to TheCW4Kids Saturday morning block on May 29th, as well as appearing daily on Cartoon Network. That’s some great staying power!
