Nicktoons has begun airing promos stating that the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series will join the network in January. Based on the short promo, it is the original series which ran on Kids’ WB! from 2001-2006 for 224 episodes.

UPDATED 12/31: Yu-Gi-Oh! will premiere Monday, January 14 airing Mon-Thu nights at 9 p.m. ET.

UPDATED 2/28: The series looks to finally be premiering Mondays-Thursday from 8-9 p.m. (ET) starting March 11 on Nicktoons.

Yu-Gi-Oh! is distributed by Konami in the U.S. since this past summer, after 4Kids sold the rights. The series still airs repeats on The CW’s Saturday morning block Vortexx, operated by Saban Brands. Repeats have aired in the past on Cartoon Network, 4Kids TV and The CW4Kids (which is now Vortexx).
