The smash hit franchise comes to video games for the first time.
Thanks to the big success of the toys, the card game, and the animated TV show, Bakugan: Battle Brawlers will make its video game debut. The game will follow the storyline seen in the TV show and the merchandise closely. As in the TV show, players will start as an untrained, unskilled Bakugan Brawler. They rise to the top by fighting through many challenges and learning the ways of Bakugan.
The gameplay of Bakugan combines cards and toys into the mix. Players throw cards into the battlefield, and then they shoot Bakugan balls onto the cards and unleash the monster within said cards. The battle truly begins when two Bakugan monsters step on the same card.
The video game version will feature the deep dramatic storylines found in the series and will be penned by the writers exclusively for the game. Players will also be able to play as any of the characters from the TV series or customize their own Bakugan Brawler with items found during the game. Both old and new Bakugan will be featured in the final game, some which have never been seen before and will make their debut appearance in the game.
It will also feature a multiplayer mode where players can adjust the arenas, characters and the rules of the match.
Bakugan: Battle Brawlers will be released fall 2009.
