Konami brings Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal to Ameba TV
Konami Cross Media NY, Inc. has partnered with Ameba TV to bring all three seasons of Yu-Gi-Oh!

The announcement was made yesterday by Mark Kirk, SVP, Director of Digital Operations at Konami Cross Media NY.
When aspiring duelist Yuma meets Astral, a mysterious visitor from another universe, it seems like destiny.

And for seasoned pros, there are plenty of never-before-seen strategies that they can use in real life!
Under the terms of the agreement, Ameba TV will acquire 146, half-hour episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal (in English), available worldwide — except in Asia.
“As a kid focused, video-on-demand platform, Ameba TV allows the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand to increase awareness and reach younger fans,” said Kirk, in making the announcement. “We are pleased to expand the Yu-Gi-Oh! digital footprint with Ameba TV.“
