    Wow at this rate, we might be getting games like Cardfight Vanguard in the US for DS. And isnt there a medabots 3ds game?

    This sounds terrible …

    • Zenthos

      Lmao, people will be throwing their 3ds’s everywhere…. poor 3ds’s.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        The day our 3DS evolve into 3DBlade lol.

        • AuraGuyChris

          Nah, 3DSamurai is better.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Beyblades is still a thing? O.o

  • AuraGuyChris

    AKA the series that has the most grating voice acting in NA.

    • Freud_Hater

      Amen to that. Or… Anti-Amen… Uhh, whatever.

  • DesmaX

    … wow, these still exist.

    I really liked the PS1 game, for whatever reason

  • J_Joestar

    I remember watching the original cartoon of this back in the day, and then when i saw the sequel everyone became anorexic or something… luckily i’m naturally thin anyways so it didn’t cause me to develop any body image issues.

  • Samurai_Heart

    Rising Star Games where are my Harvest Moon and Rune Factory announcements?!?!!??! Do we seriously have to wait 2 years after the US release T-T

  • Solomon_Kano

    Now here’s a surprise. Dunno how I’d feel about a video game, but I loved playing with Beyblades as a kid.

  • Eric Harris

    Pokemon is ok, atleast it’s complex and fun. But these other ripoff cartoons made specifically for a toy line is ridiculous. First there’s digimon a direct pokemon ripoff, and now a cartoon about spinning tops? I know it’s not new but I’m just learning about it. Just watched one episode, how can you like this, even as a kid?

    • DesmaX
    • Chogokin

      Yes, a cartoon about spinning tops is clearly a rip-off of Pokemon.

      • Eric Harris

        It’s not a clear rip off, but it’s a stupid lame cartoon about “BATTLING” to sell toys. It was just so hilarious to see the little kid (hm did pokemon have a little kid battling?) spin his top to “battle” his opponent. lol.

        • Kaihedgie

          Until you discover that said spinning tops contain ancient beasts of destruction, some of whom can throw the entire world into absolute chaos and lay waste to everything, sometimes even transforming the people who use them

          And no, I am not making that up. One of the main antagonists has a beast that basically turns him into Yami Marik with wings throws everything into another dimension crafted by his crumbling mind

          • That’s why Beyblade was badass as a kid. Would I dare watch it now? Hahahaha, not in a million years, but it was awesome in it’s own dumb and quirky way.

          • s07195

            I’d always be thinking- How the heck do the tops stay up for so long?

    • Romored

      Digimon were not Pokémon ripoffs. At all.

    • LynxAmali

      -First there’s digimon a direct pokemon ripoff,

      Except for the fact that Digimon, unlike Pokemon, are individual with their personalities (talking personalities too) and have self-contained stories that actually conclude per season. The lore’s vastly deeper too.

    • That argument is old. Digimon started as a variation of Tamagotchi, and were initially all about the player taking care of them like a digital pet. Pokémon started as straight-up monster-collecting RPGs. While Digimon Virtual Pets first started in 1997, about a year or so after Pokémon, there aren’t enough parallels between the two franchises to call it a “rip-off”. In fact, if you wanna make an “early bird” argument, one could just as easily say Pokémon‘s index-based creature recruitment is taken from Shin Megami Tensei which started in 1992. But that wouldn’t be a solid argument, would it?

  • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

    Cool, I actually like Beyblades. Hopefully its not like the disgrace that was the GBA game

  • r0gamer940

    This game gets a US release but not the 3ds Digimon game?!

    • puchinri

      It is unfortunate, but we also have to keep in mind that Beyblade has an ongoing cartoon here and they also make sales on actual Beyblade (toys). (You could also say because of that, there is a significant audience that they knew exists that will/could buy the game.)

    • Herok♞

      The new digimon is coming out soon if the U.S. and if you are talking about Redigitize then that isn’t out yet in Japan

    • JonathanisPrimus

      This game is actually a brand new title. No Japanese version exists.

  • Me … I’m wondering if this is going to use anime characters (I think the previous ones always have?) and which season’s characters they’re going to use…? Aren’t the Metal series and seasons 1-3 from different realities?

    I’m also a bit skeptical on the 3D control… Maybe they’ll include a strap, for hardware safety?

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Based on the press release it appears to be a game based on Shogun Steel/Zero-G.

  • Kalis Konig

    I wish someone would make another Beyblade RPG adventure like the one on GBA just 10times better.

  • I can just imagine people throwing their 3DSes across the room with that launching feature of theirs. …I remember getting far too into it when pulling that ripcord. Once pulled it so hard that I flung the launcher out of my hands; I hope their goal isn’t to replicate that.

    All that aside, where’s my Tin Pin Slammer gamer, Square Enix?

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Ooohhhh imagine if this is Nintendo conspiracy lol. By making many kids broke their 3DS, they will need to buy another new 3DS machinel.
      Damn Nintendo and their sly tactics lol.^_^

    • s07195

      Lol yeah, everyone wanted to look cool, and pull hard on the ripcord to get a faster speed at the same time. Lots of accidents happened, of course. Go……SHOOT!

  • Christopher Nunes

    I loved playing the Beyblade game on the PS1 and the Beyblade G-Revolution on the Gamecube where both games you have a pre-made original character to play as, both male and female versions, as you compete in the Beyblade tournaments with your own original bey and Bit Beasts (I miss Baby Dragoon and Knight Drazer from the PS1 game).

    I dislike the one I got for the Wii as you don’t have “control” over your Bey like the PS1 and Gamecube games and you don’t have your own character to play as, just the anime characters. I miss Tai and the old gang, the newer ones don’t feel as special to me as they did.

    Hopefully this game will have those pre-made original character as the player for both gender and some original Bit Beast for the Protagonist to use.

    How were those GBA games someone mentioned that was also a great RPG game as well?

  • Sounds pretty cool, actually. Anybody remember the Beyblade game for the gamecube? Had some major fun with that.

  • Guest

    I liked the metal series beyblade when it was still in japan, by the time it came over to the west I was bored with it. I would prefer Re-Digitze on 3DS or something being localized, but I understand Beyblade actually has tons and the cartoon airing.
