Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal to 4Kids: Time to Duel!

4Kids has known the fateful power of Yu-Gi-Oh! duels for years now, but never from a defensive side! That all has changed in the past few months, as various lawsuits from Nihon (NAS) and TV Tokyo split the once mighty 4Kids / Yugioh bond. Next week, the duels take a new step as ADK (Asatsu DK) hopes to wrestle control of the anime away from 4Kids. The fourth spinoff series to the franchise, ...
