After acquiring rights for the Digimon franchise outside of Asia late last year, Saban has announced that Digimon Fusion will be airing on Nickelodeon some time in 2013. Fusion is the sixth installment of the Digimon franchise that started in 1999. Fusion is being brought to Nickelodeon alongside MarVista Entertainment.
“Digimon is the longest-running Japanese anime property and has been enjoyed by kids for more than a decade,” said Elie Dekel , President of Saban Brands . “We’re thrilled to be bringing the all-new Digimon Fusion TV series to Nickelodeon, where we have the opportunity to introduce the series to a new generation of children while still engaging long-time fans.”
Digimon Fusion, or Digimon Xcros Wars as it’s known as in Japan, follows a boy named Mikey (Taiki in Japan) as he’s transported to the Digital World. Mikey and his new digimon (digital monster) pals must work together to save the Digital World from destruction. Saban says the series “takes today’s tech-savvy kids inside an adventure-packed digital world, where the heroes’ courage is matched only by the fusion of their teamwork, loyalty and humor.”
