A few years ago, it?s hard to find an anime as popular and as good as Yu-Gi-Oh!. The anime was a hit with people all around the world and also started the popular card trading trend. Despite its plummeting popularity, it appears that there will be a new Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series scheduled for release in 2017.
New Yu-Gi-Oh! Anime Series Details
At the present time, details for the upcoming series are very scarce. Fortunately, a few bits of information have been revealed. According to the website CrunchyRoll, as well as the official Twitter page of the franchise, the series is about children following their dreams. That being said, it appears that it will be the protagonist?s main goal in the series.
Speaking of the protagonist, the protagonist in the new Yu-Gi-Oh!?anime series is named Yusaku Fujiki. ?People who are eager to find out more about the main character should stay tuned to Tokyo TV in Japan this spring. However, the subtitled version of the event will likely be made available via streaming services in other regions.
Furthermore, several details such as its title, other characters, new monsters, and the plot are still unknown. However, the story of the show will likely be driven by Fujiki?s dreams to be the best. People can also expect Fujiki having a battle with his friends in high-stakes card games.

New Yu-Gi-Oh! Anime Series Also Bringing a New Game?
The video game publisher Konami is known for pumping out video games based on the Yu-Gi-Oh!?series. Fans should also expect an upcoming collectible that is based on the new series. The said game will be competing with other trading card games such as Bethesda?s Elder Scrolls: Legends and Blizzard?s Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.
However, Yu-Gi-Oh! will have an edge in battle given that it also has a television presence. It is expected that it will have a unique advantage, as well as a decent chunk of the market. But, fans who are excited about the possible video game may want to follow the upcoming show first.
The chances of the game being brought to reality lie within the success of the show. Even though Konami has been releasing Yu-Gi-Oh! games consistently, there?s still some problems that could keep a new game from being made. Firstly, if the show fails to achieve the people?s expectation, it would kill the interest of people in the game as well.
In addition, it seems like Konami is stepping away from game development since they lost Hideo Kojima. At the present time, Konami is focused on pachinko machines instead of developing new games.
