VIZ Media has announced that the company will be launching Kazuki Takahashi’s Yu-Gi-Oh! manga series in a new 3-in-1 omnibus series on February 3, 2015 under its Shonen Jump imprint. The series is rated “T” for teens and will carry an MSRP of $14.99 U.S./$16.99 CAN. The omnibus editions will cover the entire 38-volume series and will be published quarterly for a total of 13 volumes.
Tenth-grader Yugi always had his head in some game – until he solved the Millennium Puzzle, an Egyptian artifact containing the spirit of a master gambler from the age of the pharaohs. Possessed by the puzzle, Yugi becomes Yu-Gi-Oh, the King of Games, and challenges evildoers to the Shadow Games… weird games with high stakes and high risks.
The games begin in the opening Yu-Gi-Oh! omnibus volume. Meet Seto Kaiba, master of the world’s most dangerous collectible card game. When Kaiba discovers that Yugi’s grandfather owns the incredibly rare “Blue-Eyes White Dragon” card, he will stop at nothing to get it… even if he has to duel with Yugi’s dark alter ego Yu-Gi-Oh. Then, out of the sands of Egypt, the mystic Shadi has come to test Yugi’s powers, which will give Yugi his greatest challenge yet. If he loses, his best friends will die.
“This new omnibus is a great way to dive into all the action of the original Yu-Gi-Oh! manga series for the very first time, or revisit it in a whole new way – undivided and in its entirety,” says Erica Yee, Editor. “Yu-Gi-Oh! remains the Number 1 trading card game property in the world, and the popularity of the property has also spawned several top-rated anime series, bestselling video games, and a vast array of action figures and other collectables. We look forward to even more fans discovering this tremendous manga series with the new 3-in-1 editions.”
