Digimon Fusion Picked Up by Nickelodeon
Saban Brands has recently announced that Nickelodeon has picked up (and will be airing) Digimon Fusion this year. Digimon Fusion is the sixth installment in the long running franchise, which Saban re-acquired last year.
Saban Brands’ official description of the series:
Digimon Fusion is the all-new animated series and sixth installment of the Digimon franchise, the longest-running Japanese anime property. The series will feature all-new Digimon action and excitement following Mikey, a human boy, who is transported into the digital realm and must team up with his new “Digimon” or “Digital Monster” friends before their world is deleted once and for all. New fusion powers allow Digimon to combine and fuse their abilities to create endless battle possibilities. A property of Saban Brands, Digimon Fusion will air on Nickelodeon in the U.S. in 2013.
Digimon Fusion will be distributed internationally (outside of Asia) by MarVista Entertainment.
