This Trailer For The Little Battlers Isn’t Very Little At All

By Ishaan . June 13, 2011 . 8:32am

Have you seen what The Little Battlers looks like outside of battle? Here’s a good, long look. After the brief introduction to the game’s story and LBXes, the trailer jumps ahead to character interaction before a battle scene.



Since the LBXes are toys of sorts, it’s interesting to see some of the backgrounds in battle, such as fake cardboard environments and people’s bedrooms (of course, eventually, you end up saving the world anyway). After that, you get a nice look at the town.


The Little Battlers is slated for release next week on June 16th in Japan. Every copy of the game is made to mimic a model kit — Level 5 are including an actual AX-00 Achilles prototype model that you have to build.

  • The greatest game of the PSP is right there, only an english translation away from me, my creys! Its just so cool and awesome!

    • Guest

      What happened to their horror RPG??

      • “Put on hold” is the official speak. It likely became The Time Travellers for 3DS.

    If only… *sigh* if only… ♥

    • Code

      Japan, bending physics to it’s will owo

  • KeyCross

    Is it wrong to be interested in this? Knowing that there is a Pokemon, a Monster Rancher, a Custom Robo and even a Megaman Battle Network…I still feel this should be shipped overseas…

    • I want a new monster rancher game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Monster Rancher DS came out in August for the… Nintendo DS.

    • puchinri

      You can never have too much of a good thing though! Not as far as video games go, anyway. It definitely needs to be shipped overseas~.

  • The presentation is stellar, the voice action is top notch, the customization is… well, it is way too complicated for me at least. LEVEL-5 is on a roll will of these portable titles. I noticed a lot of furigana. Importers should take note. Speaking of importing, yesasia has it for $83 and free shipping. It’s a lot, but the price will eventually go down. It also comes with a plastic model:

    I wonder what the chances that this game will come out of Japan are? I hope Sony will bring this game out or even Level 5 with their new game studio in North America. I hope this game does well so in the future there can be a Vita version too.

    • puchinri

      If Level-5 does actually intend to talk about their overseas plans (like with the office they just opened here) at their Vision event this year, then there’s a chance they might localize this themselves. I really hope so, at least.

  • Code

    rar, looks so damn good; I’m really hoping it can get localization here, because this is definitely high priority for me omo; I can’t help but feel though between Level 5’s history of localization, and the closing window for PSP releases, this one might be lost T_T’

  • GAhhhh I want this!!!! Awesome graphics and good gameplay this should be on vita and add some AR elements that would be cool

  • kupomogli

    I hope this gets localized.  It looks really good and I don’t import anything text heavy.

  • IsaacGravity

    Well this trailer clinched it. This game is a must have for my PSP library localization or no.

  • I’ve been dying for this game, I hope it comes over. It reminds me of Angelic Layer.

    • TanyaRei

      Same thought here

  • Man I love games like this. Custom Robo, The Medabot RPG’s, Pokemon, Digimon, Dinosaur King…Games of that variety! Please let this get a localized version!

  • puchinri

    Yay for Plawres/Angelic Layer/Gotcha Force/Medarotto!
    Yup. I’m definitely getting a PSP now. That part at 8m reminds me of Prof. Layton, and Resonance of Fate actually, but Level-5 seems to really enjoy having people put stuff together.

    When is Level-5’s Vision event? Since this will be out before the event, I’m eager to see what they’ll present to us next~.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    I am Ban, the spear that impales evil!

    • Exkaiser

      How long until we get our tiny SRW, with the largest units being Medarots and Iron Leaguers?

  • I was a made to never be localized in America.

  • Reminds me of Gotcha Force back on the Game Cube….good times!
