It wont be long now – just a few more days until fans get their look at the new Yu-Gi-Oh! series, as 4Kids readies Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal.

Whatever, they’re in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game, so that makes us happy!) and scattered around the world. The Numbers can possess duelists, which makes them a popular target for Numbers Holders and Numbers Hunters. Excited yet?
