Released or inherited?

How would you translate the following sentence?

今、千年パズルを解き闇のゲームを受け継いだ少年がいた。

I'd translate it this way:

Now a boy has solved the millennium puzzle and inherited the dark games.

But in the English subtitles, they wrote the following:

Now, the time where a boy has solved the Millennium Puzzle and released the Dark Games has come.

The verb 受け継ぐ is translated as "inherit, take over, be heir to" in these dictionaries: Kenkyusha, Riidaasu, eijiro.
