Saban Brands announces Nickelodeon as the U.S. broadcast partner for brand-new “Digimon Fusion” series.
NEW YORK, NY – Saban Brands’ new animated series, Digimon Fusion, will air on Nickelodeon in 2013. Digimon Fusion is the sixth installment of the hugely successful Digimon franchise, which Saban Brands re-acquired in 2012. Unleashing countless Digimon combinations, Digimon Fusion 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.
“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.”
The series features all-new Digimon action and excitement following Mikey, a human boy, who is transported into the digital realm and must team up with his new “Digimon” or “Digital Monster” friends before their world is deleted once and for all. New fusion powers allow Digimon to combine and fuse their abilities to create endless battle possibilities. Tap into the excitement of Digimon Fusion later this year on Nickelodeon.
Digimon Fusion will be distributed internationally (outside of Asia) by MarVista Entertainment.
