That New Yu-Gi-Oh! Movie Has Made Good Money in Japan

Yu-Gi-Oh! is apparently still quite popular in Japan.

I think I stopped paying attention to Yu-Gi-Oh! as soon as the characters of the show started riding motorcycles, but I have to admit that the prospect of revisiting characters from the original series gives me a little bit of excitement. And that’s exactly what’s happened with Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions, a new movie starring characters from the original series.

In Japan, the movie was released in April and is still opening in new cinemas. To date, it’s grossed more than 1 billion yen, or US$9 million, which isn’t something at which to scoff. For comparison’s sake, the last Yu-Gi-Oh! movie, 2010’s Bonds Beyond Time, only took in US$2 million.

For the English dub, Dan Green and Eric Stuart will reprise their roles as Yami Yugi and Seto Kaiba respectively. The film will hit North American cinemas – albeit more than likely in a very limited release – on January 27, 2017.
