Azuma Returns For Medabots 7: Kabuto & Kuwagata Versions

By Ishaan . May 30, 2012 . 12:33pm

Last night, Famitsu magazine revealed Medabots 7: Kabuto Ver. and Medabots 7: Kuwagata Ver. for the Nintendo 3DS. Today, Famitsu.com has a first look at the Rocket Company game.

 

 

Azuma is back, and both versions of Medabots 7 will feature the same story, but you’ll get different customization parts depending on which version you buy. The game will have over 140 Medabots in total. Here’s a look at some of them:

 

 

While the Famitsu.com article doesn’t make mention of it, Medabots 7 will also have online battles as well as StreetPass features. The game will be released on September 13th for the Nintendo 3DS.

    This is a series I miss so much. I wish it would have had a better following in the US.

  • SirRichard

    Region lock is quickly becoming the most irritating thing about the 3DS, isn’t it?

    • boundries_san

      Region lock has always be an irritating thing.T_T

    I remember playing the GBA game, I really liked it!
    Hope this does get a chance to come to america.

  • onilink888

    Serious Custom Robo nostalgia attack induced by those screens. I’ll definitely be buying this as it’s the closest I’ll get to a new CR. 

    EDIT:
    Oh darn, this is turn-based. :(

  • Mago Iichi

    This looks turnbased.

    So how about some localization Rocket Company?

    • Code

      It looks to be like the last few Medabot games, so it’s likely 3v3 turn-based battles.

  • Code

    Awesome this is what I wanted to see >w<; This is a far more quality looking entry if you ask me owo; Now just to cross fingers and hope that it will come out here~

  • Shadowman

    Yeah I remember watching the anime when I was a kid it was awesome and I always like the silver bot he was so cool I can’t wait till this get a region release.

    Natsume is pretty much the biggest hope for this in the US. Then Xseed or someone like them, if not Natsume.

    Natsume did also say they have another big announcement for E3 besides HM A New Beginning. While it’s probably just Rune Factory 4 or something… It’s the 15th anniversary of Medabots, and the 10th year since CORE 2 was released in America. And the mascots for 7 are the same ones as 2 and the anime, Metabee and Rokusho, who are probably the best known Medabots in the US.

  • Exkaiser

    Hm, I wonder if there’ll be a new pair of Kabuto/Kuwagata leads, or if it’s just going to be Metabee and Rokusho. That would be pretty odd, considering they were outdated the first time Azuma got them.

    I’d be all for an upgrade to Sanjuro.

    • http://www.facebook.com/alwaysbored.andrade Jonathan Andrade

      When Medarot DS was unveiled Famitsu made it a point to show off Sanjuro and Gun-Nose, this makes me think Metabee and Rokusho are indeed our mascot Medabots for this game.

      Given how Azuma looks younger I’m thinking this might be a prequel, which would explain the outclassed models.

      • Exkaiser

        It wouldn’t realllly explain the outclassed models, since they’ve been outclassed since, oh, Medarot 3? Even if it’s a prequel to DS, it should still be taking place after the events of Ikki’s games.

        Of course, the real reason for them being the flagship ‘bots is because they’re the most immediately familiar and iconic KBT and KWG. Same reason we got them for the beginning of DS.

        I figured Azuma looking younger was just a switch in art styles, but it could very well be both.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Will-Jay/100001526135754 Will Jay

      I’m pretty sure it’s a prequel.

      I could still see a new KBT or KWG model later on in the game, though.

  • KaiYamato

    That’s cool and all. I want my Arcbeetle, darn it. XP

  • Theofratus ‘Geese’ Lester

    Too bad Medabots didn’t do well in America.  Oh well…
