A Look At Customization And Battles In The Little Battlers’ New Trailer

By Ishaan . June 1, 2011 . 5:30pm

June 16th will see the release of Level 5’s next game in the form of The Little Battlers on PSP. Level 5 are treating this as their next big mixed-media franchise, with manga and anime series and plastic model kits to help expand it.


The plastic model kits work because The Little Battlers is a “plastic model RPG”. Kids in the game play with LBX — Little Battle Experience — robots. Your LBX just so happens to have to save the world. Level 5 say that you’ll have over 2,500 parts to choose from for customization in The Little Battlers. Here’s a new trailer with examples:



The Little Battlers will allow for battles from 2-4 players. Level 5 are going to include an actual plastic model kit of the AX-00, a prototype of your robot in the game, that you’ll have to build. You can catch the last major trailer for the game here.

  • Odd, the guy sounded like Ichigo K’s JPN VA.  This game is the definitive PSP game, simply epic.  Graphically amazing, gameplay, so cool, just awesome.

  • I can already see the anime, anyway this will be great for my supressed medabot’s fan soul xD

    • Where exactly? I have difficulty finding the anime, may it be raw or subbed.

      • I was under the impression that it is getting an anime. I think WA means that he can see it receiving an anime?

        • Ah, I see, but there is already an anime for it, I just have difficulties finding it.

          • Exkaiser

            TokyoTosho has up to episode 9 raw.

          • Oh, I see thank you!

          • It already has the anime? Lol o_O wtf, that was a really hidden release.


          • That’s only because I assumed you know that it was already out!! Well, at least now you know~ :P

          • No excuses, now join twitter, you are the only one out! NOOB, dont come crying when someday we are like “Raioh? Who was that? Leg fetish?”

          • Zero_Destiny

            @ Raioh   
            Join twitter already. :P Everyone has one but you I need you back-up on twitter ASAP too. No one else wants to talk Robots with me. Raioh save me and join Twitter!!!!

          • anime been out for awhile have the latest eps in raw format planning to sub it

          • Great, at least you remember my leg fetish~ xD
            Ok, ok I made an account, but what now? I’m not the type to talk much when it’s not profitable.. :/

          • Zero_Destiny

            Raioh you gotta tell us your name on Twitter (there are way too many Raiohs on twitter) then we can find and follow you and you can follow us and we can all have fun conversations!!!

        • Exactly :P

      • “The Little Battlers” is just the official English title (whether it’ll ever actually appear in the States is another question entirely). Try looking for “Danbooru Senki” or “Danball Senki” – or ダンボール戦機 (literally “Cardboard Battle Machines”, though with different kanji, “senki” can mean “battle chronicle” or “war story”).

      • puchinri

        It does seem pretty hard to find eps, no matter which title you search by.

  • theworldofnoboundries

    Another great game, yet another game that we will never see it on the West.

  • I freakin’ love Medabo- wait a minute…

    • Exkaiser

      It’s like if they took all the best parts of Gotcha Force and Medarot and slammed them together.

      Meanwhile they asked Plawres Sanshiro and Custom Robo for design tips.

  • Code

    rar, I want this game so badly right now — I’m really hoping for localization, but I just may have to break down and import omo; 

  • Exkaiser

    Looks great. Can’t wait.

  • looks good, remember my times when i enjoy watching medabots XD

  • PrinceHeir

    awesome mini bots :D

  • Pisses me off that this game has an English title but apparently no U.S. release is planned.

  • KotaroInugami

    Ya know, I actually am not doubting this will get liscensed quickly. I mean, pokemon style collecting, and robots. Everything necessary to squeeze money out of people of all ages.

    • puchinri

      That’s kind of what I think. I just wonder if L-5 will try to localize it themselves or if someone else will.

  • Draparde

    Wow…seeing this game in action makes me think Gachaforce even more. well a mix of maybe that and medabots. which is awesome…>_< i wana play it! 

  • Jesus Roman

    I want this game already. Just beat the DS version of custom robot last break I got from work but it only lasted me 4 days. Probably should had sleep more during that time to make it last more.

    I’m missing the dark parts in the underground battle place and a few challenges. I think I’ll go back to playing that while I wait to see if this makes it over here or import it if not.

  • First thing in my mind was… Medabots.
