This Is About As Close To A Battle Beasts Video Game As You’re Going To Get

image If you grew up in the ’80s you probably had some Battle Beasts figurines. These toys had a sticker on them which you would rub to reveal an element like wood, fire or water. There’s a rock-paper-scissors system where one element beats the other in battle. Takara Tomy made a spiritual successor called Beast Saga which has a manga and anime series.


In July, there will be a video game. Nippon Columbia announced Beast Saga: The Strongest Clash in the Colosseum for Nintendo 3DS. The game’s genre is a fighting action game and two characters – Liogre and Big Serow are confirmed to be in it.

    Have been keep following the anime here and i like how the story goes. While it is simple, i just love how the story is about the land vs sky vs sea animal lol.^_^

      I’ve been thinking of following this, as it looks like everything that my inner eight-year old would ever want. Is there a version out there for those who can’t understand Japanese, or is it RAWs only?

        You can try looking them on nyaa. I think some fansubs have already translate them until eps 3? I watched them raw lately so i don’t really remember.

  • I’m kinda confused, did Takara Tomy license the game to Nippon Columbia to publish, or is Nippon Columbia just developing it and Takara Tomy is publishing it?

    Because Takara Tomy seem to now be back making games again, with Pretty Rhythm 3DS having just come out, that was developed by Syn Sophia (Style Savvy).
