The film will tell the secrets that have never been told, as an “after episode” of the original story.

It takes place six months after the end of the original manga. Because of this, Yugi is drawn a tad older than fans are used to.

Kaiba in the poster is the center of the world and the plot will be a lot about him. He’s the center of the film.

The movie will be a bit darker than fans are used to in Yugioh and the villain will cause a disturbance that will have Kaiba and Yugi in their crosshairs.

The poster visual revealed at the panel features Yugi Mutoh, Kaiba Seto, and a mysterious new character. The two original voice cast from the 2000-2004 TV series Yu-Gi-Oh!

Duel Monsters, Shunsuke Kazama and Kenjiro Tsuda are set to reprise their roles as Yugi and Kaiba, respectively.

And so we all know that Yusei, Judai and Yugi will be in this film.. but what’s the plot?

A new poster visual featuring Yugi, Kaiba, and a new character for the film, Aigami, for the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions is revealed to Japanese media On Dec 10th 2015.

In the visual, Yugi is holding the Millennium Puzzle missing a piece, which was lost in the end of the original story. The tagline is written as “Fight, for What You Believe.”

Dark Side of Dimmension UK promoThe basic plot:

Long ago, when the pyramids were still young, Egyptian kings played a game of great and terrible power. These Shadow Games erupted into a war that threatened to destroy the entire world – until a brave and resourceful Pharaoh locked the magic away, imprisoning it within the mystical Millennium Items.

Centuries later, a boy named Yugi Muto unlocks the secret of the Millennium Puzzle. Infused with ancient magical energies, he summons forth the spirit of the Pharaoh from eons ago, for destiny has chosen him to defend the world from the return of the Shadow Games.

Teamed with an eclectic group of loyal friends against an extraordinary array of formidable foes, Yugi and the Pharaoh together battle to defeat forces of unimaginable evil. They ultimately succeed and prevent the world from plunging into darkness forever.

With their mission complete, Yugi and the Pharaoh hold one final match against each other to determine whether Yugi is capable of standing alone without the Pharaoh’s help. When the ritual duel of destiny ends with the Pharaoh’s defeat, the magical Millennium Items are buried deep beneath the Egyptian sands and the Pharaoh’s soul returns to whence it came.

And thus the story came to an end. Until now.

The stakes have never been higher; the rivalries never as fierce; the risks never so great. One wrong move – one card short – and it’s game over for good. A decade in the making, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions features new designs and an all-new story from the original creator of the global phenomenon, Kazuki Takahashi. His masterful tale features anime’s most beloved characters in their long-awaited return: Yugi Muto, Seto Kaiba, and their faithful friends Joey Wheeler, Tristan Taylor Téa Gardner, and Bakura. It’s the most highly anticipated re-YU-nion ever!
