Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Northern Europe has announced the exciting news that Nickelodeon Germany (Deutschland) has picked up the broadcast rights to Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, the fourth main spin-off series in the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise!

Nickelodeon Germany will start to premiere and show Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V every Saturday at 10:50 Uhr from Saturday 25th June 2016, beginning with episode 50 (season 2, Episode 1).

The timeslot is currently occupied by Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, which will conclude on Saturday 18th June 2016.

ProSieben Maxx, the channel that originally debuted Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V in Germany in March 2015, are currently encoring season one weekdays at 16:30 Uhr. Season one also currently airs Sundays at 10am ET/PT on Nicktoons USA.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V takes place in the near future place called Paradise City where Leo Corporation creates new advancements to Solid Vision that gives life to Duel Monsters. New advancements to Solid Vision give physical mass to monsters, environments, and allow players to interact directly with them. It also gives birth to challenging Action Duels. Action Duels allow duelists to traverse environments to locate Action Cards to help them in a pinch.

The story follows Yuya Sakaki who is a second year middle school student at Paradise City's You Show Duel School. Yuya's father, Yusho Sakaki, disappeared three years ago when he was scheduled for a Duel against the Action Duel Champion and was deemed as a coward who ran away. To clear his father's name, Yuya faces off against the current Action Duel champion and awakens a new power from his pendant known as Pendulum Summoning.

Yuya strives to master the art of Pendulum Summoning to become a great Dueltainer like his father. Yuya met a mysterious black masked Duelist who greatly resembles him named Yuto, who reveals that the world is split into four dimensions. Three of the dimension names come from the summoning methods used in the respective world. The names of the dimensions are Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, and Standard, which is the center of the four dimensions where Yuya lives in. Yuya and his friends become involved in the interdimensional conflict after Duelists from Duel Academy of the Fusion Dimension invade the Arc League Championship. Duel Academy Duelists turn several Duelists into cards under orders from Leo Akaba, Declan's father whose ambition is to unite the four dimensions. Declan forms the Lancers, a group of elite Duelists capable of fighting Duel Academy with Duelists selected based on the result of the championship to stop Leo.

Following the disappearance of Yuya's childhood friend, Zuzu Boyle, during the championship, Yuya and the other Lancers go to City of Synchro Dimension in hope to gain allies before Duel Academy invade it. To prove their worth as Duelists to the people of Synchro Dimension, the Executive Council of City signed them into Friendship Cup where Duelists compete in Turbo Duels for the right to challenge the Duel King, Jack Atlas.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V is the newest Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series inspired by Kazuki Takahashi's original manga.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V will join Nickelodeon Germany's anime programming line-up, which also includes Pokémon and Yo-kai Watch.
