4kids big new license is...what? Tai Chi Chasers?


4kids is returning to its super licensing-slash-merchandising roots, and they announced that much just a couple of days ago. They also had a great new license up their sleeve that wasn't quite named on the same day, but now...now we know.

They've got Tai Chi Chasers! Now it's time to both rejoice, then look up what Tai Chi Chasers actually is.

Apparently, Tai Chi Chasers is also known as Tai Chi Senjimon, the result of a collaborative effort between Toei Animation and the Korean Broadcasting System. The story is described as follows:

Tai Chi Chasers focuses on Rai, a young orphan, shocked to discover he's a secret descendent of the Tigeroids: an ancient race of peaceful beings locked in struggle with the ruthless and cunning Dragonoids. In a parallel universe called Suhn, the Tigeroids and Dragonoids are locked in an age-old race to recover 500 lost tai chi symbols. Whoever recovers these precious and potent symbols will possess the ultimate power to rule their realm…and destroy their enemies. Rai must now hone his innate tai chi card skills to fight the Dragonoids, find the lost symbols and battle to become one of the champion Tai Chi Chasers.

From the looks of things, all the elements are there. Fantasy setting, cards, a card reader-looking thing, and symbols. It could be a winner.
