Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS heads to Australia


The latest Yu-Gi-Oh! animated series is heading to Australia. Nine Network’s 9Go! digital multi-channel will premiere Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS on Saturday, April 6th at 3PM.

The fifth Yu-Gi-Oh! spinoff series is once again produced by NAS and first began airing in Japan on TV Tokyo in May 2017. The series became the first entry in the property to get an official ongoing simulcast on anime streaming service Crunchyroll. Notably, Australia is one of the few countries blocked from that release.

Here’s a series synopsis:

In “Den City” where the latest network has developed, people were dueling day and night in the VR world called “LINK VRAINS” managed by SOL Technology Inc. The main character, Yusaku Fujiki is a quiet high school student with a great insight. He has been dueling, transforming himself into his avatar “Playmaker”, to battle the “The Knights of Hanoi” that plots to destroy “LINK VRAINS”.

4K Media screened the first dubbed episode as part of the Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: The Pyramid of Light theatrical re-release early last year. The 46-episode original season of the show made its English-language television debut in September 2018 on Teletoon in Canada. The episodes have also been dubbed into Italian, Latin American Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese. A second season of the English dub is currently in production.

A U.S. partner for the English Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS dub has yet to be announced.

The VRAINS storyline will be featured in a video game for the first time later this year. Konami plans on releasing Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution for Nintendo Switch globally this spring. The game features over 9000 cards, local and online multiplayer and a story mode featuring content from every Yu-Gi-Oh! show.

In related Yu-Gi-Oh! news, the franchise’s entertainment distributor 4K Media has officially changed its name. Reflecting a new interest in taking video game properties like Bomberman, Contra and Frogger into other forms of media, the company is now known as Konami Cross Media NY Inc.
