Spin Master is planning to release a complete range of games, trading cards and toys linked to Redakai: Conquer the Kairu, all based on new technology.

Zodiak Kids and Spin Master has also secured a number of pre-sales for the series, which is already in place with Cartoon Network US. Canada’s YTV and French channels, Gulli and Canal J have announced plans to broadcast the series in the second half of this year for YTV and Canal J, and early 2012 for Gulli.

Redakai: Conquer the Kairu features Ky, a 15-year-old boy and student of the ancient martial arts, who embarks on a quest to find the Kairu, a mystical energy with incredible powers and the catalyst for all forms of life in the universe.

The series is coproduced by Studio Marathon Media in Paris and Spin Master, behind the action show phenomenon Bakugan Battle Brawlers.

“After Cartoon Network US, we are delighted to partner once again with Gulli, Canal J and YTV – with whom we have already enjoyed some major successes – this time with Redakai, a ground-breaking adventure series,” said Vincent Chalvon Demersay and David Michel, co-principals of Marathon Media.

Jennifer Dodge, executive producer, Spin Master Entertainment, said: “Spin Master is thrilled to have the strength and support of YTV behind the launch of Redakai in Canada.

"They will be the perfect strategic complement to the efforts of our partners Gulli and Canal J in France and Cartoon Network in the US."
