Medabots Wants To Give Level-5′s Little Battlers A Run For Its Money

By Spencer . August 11, 2013 . 11:52am

Level-5′s customizable mini-mecha series The Little Battlers eXperience is a fairly successful franchise in Japan. Way before Level-5 got into robots, there was Medabots. Most of the games play like monster battling games with bug-like robots instead of electric rodents. Medabots Dual: Kuwagata and Medabots: Dual Kabuto are completely different. These two games look more like a Little Battlers game, but with Medabots.



On top of overhauling the gameplay, Rocket Company added 100 new Medabots to Medabots Dual: Kuwagata and Medabots: Dual Kabuto for Nintendo 3DS. Both games are scheduled for release later this year.

    Looks like they took tips from the Gundam Vs. playbook, honestly does not look that bad. Always wondered though, how come no one in this series has a problem with kids playing with robots that are armed with low yield explosives, bullets, and energy weapons in playgrounds and the school yard >.>

    still loved it though haha.

    • Ferrick

      because even adults do it XD, what’s more surprising is that nobody died yet

    • Bigabu Beaze

      Reminds me of Gotcha Force as well. Slower paced Gotcha Force but still awesome.

  • Tsurugi

    Bring to USA and take my money!

    • Bigabu Beaze

      I second that!

    • HeroOfGames16

      Isn’t there a localization movement going on that’s fighting for the Medabots games?

    • Raltrios

      Don’t forget Canada :P

    • Renaldi Saputra

      make a hashtag #OperationMetabee on twitter and start making petition like what Re:Digitize Decode do.. I hope it will lead to a success

      • Tsurugi

        let’s make it happen =D! ( And for those who like I would like to bring to US Inazuma Eleven GO! 3DS games I know it is hard but I will not give up =D

  • Blackikun

    I WANT THIS! I will buy a japanese 3DS for this (and Decode). I love Medarot since my Childhood ;D Rokusho is so awsome and Metabee´s Charakter is one of the best i know. (Need to rebuy a Rokusho D-Arts, after my cat kick it from the closet and broke it… Metabee is soooo lonely up there…)

  • Binks5

    this seriously looks like fun

  • KaiYamato

    Aw man, my child. Why can’t this ever come out in the US. >.<

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s underrated in US.. it seems
      medarot was only popular on its time (around 2001 or 2003)

  • Sergio Briceño

    Megaman Legends 3, is that you?

  • Hines Green III

    Ugh, just give me a Medabot vs LBX crossover and call it a day. :/

  • NimbusStev

    I’m not gonna lie, I actually had a lot of fun with the Medabots game on GBA. I knew it was a repetitive cash-in with poor game design choices, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

  • Dexward

    I want a Medabots game with the graphics similar to the thumbnail.

  • Vash bane

    this looks pretty cool(had to look up what little battlers is)

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I hope makes a come back. The gameplay remind me of Gotcha force

  • gulabjamuns

    I’ve never been a very big fan of medabots since it came on TV when I was a kid (although I didn’t have anything against it either)… but the gameplay here reminds me of games like Virtua On, Custom Robo, and Gatcha Force… these are my kinda games!
