The Little Battlers Wars Lets You Choose From 20 Different Protagonist Avatars

By Sato . July 3, 2013 . 4:40pm

Unlike the anime version of The Little Battlers Wars, where Arata Sena is the protagonist who fights for the virtual nation of Jenock, Level-5’s upcoming 3DS version will allow players to choose their appearance from an impressive selection of 20 character avatars, and will be representing the virtual nation of Harness on the cardboard battlefield.


For the first time in The Little Battlers Wars series, you’ll get to select your own protagonist avatar out of the 20 featured characters below:



As previously mentioned, you will be part of the virtual nation known as Harness, which means you’ll be fighting against Arata and the others from Jenock, and will occasionally cooperate with them, too.


Here’s a look at three key LBXs that will be going wild in the Second World of The Little Battlers Wars, and will also be participating in The Little Battlers W Super Custom.



Val Sparos and Dot Phasor



Level-5 have also introduced a new system called the Multi-Gimmick Sack. It’s a special weapon that’s equipped on the back of LBXs, which also has transforming and fusing attributes.


The above is a look at the Dot Phasor and its equipped Z Shield. It has a sword and gun stored within it, which can be mixed up to a total of five different weapon combinations. Here’s a look at its different forms:


Z Sword



Z Rifle



Z Shooter



Z Hammer



Z Lance



In addition to the virtual nation of Harness, the great nation of the Aravista Alliance will also be participating in the cardboard battle field. They’re made of six allied forces, united for the single purpose of taking on the opposing Rosius nation. They seem to be trying to get Jenock to join their alliance, too.

19th platoon players, Aona Shinji and Akahoshi Kanji.


The above is a look at two Aravista Alliance LBXs, Vernel and Zirant. Their abilities are currently unkown.




This mysterious LBX known as Phantom has suddenly appeared on the battlefield of the Second World. Its origins are unknown, but it is said to be capable of hiding itself with an optic camouflage. It can even use its boosters as a laser weapon, making it quite the formidable unknown LBX.


The Little Battlers Wars is slated for release this Fall for Nintendo 3DS.

    I’d like to see some gameplay to know how the SRPG direction this game took is gonna play out. But regardless, another promising Level-5 game we may never get released overseas >.<

    And some are still wondering why people want 3DS to go region-free…

  • SilentMC

    Gonna go for the Goggle boy (thinking of Digimon). Here’s hoping L5 introduce a good twist to differenciate it from other SRPGs

  • Sardorim

    Gonna have to pass on this, those character designs are just too young and unappealing for me to use as my Avatar.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    I like the avatar selection feature; it’s not as good as a full blown character creation feature, but at least it still gives the player some degree of customisation.

    Makes me wish SRW would include something similar (and I mean something more extensive and interesting than what they did in 4/F/F Final and Alpha).

  • Göran Isacson

    Man, those are some pretty cool and varied designs. A+ from me, Level 5! Too bad the West probably won’t get the opportunity to see just how serious business these childrens robot model battles can be…

    Ehhh, the avatar selection thing bugs me. I’d rather just play as Alata and friends, following the story of the anime. Maybe the Hernes group is just for a side mode or something and there’s still a main story mode where you’re a part of Jenock. Makes sense, since on what’s probably the cover and on the official site all the focus is still put on Jenock. Maybe Crossplay Missions from the Gundam AGE game ended up being preliminary for this. That had players avatars too.

    Either way, still can’t wait to import this when it comes out.

    • Bigabu Beaze

      Me too!

    Also, I like row seven’s guy the most. The one next to the twin tails girl. I’ll probably go with him.
