4K Media Inc. is an American production company currently owned by Konami. It was formerly a subsidiary of 4Kids Entertainment and was responsible for adapting and producing English language dubs of Japanese anime, mainly the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, having dubbed over 800 episodes.[1]

The company was shut down by 4Kids Entertainment on June 30, 2012, due to continued lack of profitability,[2] but the production office was acquired by Konami and renamed "4K Media" later that year. The company is currently dedicated to the licensing, sales, and distribution of the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand in the United States, including Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters and its spinoffs.[3]

The office produced dubbed episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal and Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V,[4] and is currently working on the English dub for Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS.

The company was recently granted the rights to manage the gaming properties, Bomberman, Contra and Frogger from Konami. Rounding out their IP portfolio is Rebecca Bonbon, the girl’s anime brand created by Yuko Shimuzu.
