Konami Cross Media has sold “Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens” to RTL Croatia and Pro Plus Slovenia, owned by Central European Media Enterprises (CME). At this year’s MIPTV ’24, Konami Cross Media NY is represented by Mark Kirk, SVP of Distribution, who made the announcement.

“Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens”, featuring all new characters and adventures, will debut in Croatia and Slovenia in the second quarter of 2024. MENART, the company who distributes the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game locally, are also overseeing localization of the series for Croatian and Slovenian audiences.

“We are pleased that our partners in Croatia and Slovenia are finding a great deal of success with the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise,” said Mark Kirk. “‘‘Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens’ gives fans a brand-new twist with the introduction of ‘Rush Duel,’ allowing for faster paced and frantic dueling among Yuga and his friends. As proven in the U.S., and many other key territories worldwide, anime fans are excited to see the latest Yu-Gi-Oh! Adventures.”

"Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens" is the seventh series for the Anime franchise and introduces a new protagonist, Yuga Ohdo. Yuga Ohdo may seem like any other 5th grader in Goha City, but he's about to take his favorite game to the next level by inventing a whole new way to duel - Rush Duel. Unlike previous duels, Rush Duel are faster and simpler, but with awesome new strategies that make each duel more dynamic than the last. Yuga can't wait to share Rush Dueling with every Duelist out there, but Goha Enterprises - the megacorp that controls the whole city - is having none of it. They're the ones who dictate how Duels are supposed to be played, so they're going to use everything in their arsenal to crush this kid! But if they think that's going to stop Yuga from building his road to freedom - they don't know Yuga.
