A Look At Customization And Battles In The Little Battlers’ New Trailer


June 16th will see the release of Level 5’s next game in the form of The Little Battlers on PSP. Level 5 are treating this as their next big mixed-media franchise, with manga and anime series and plastic model kits to help expand it.


The plastic model kits work because The Little Battlers is a “plastic model RPG”. Kids in the game play with LBX — Little Battle Experience — robots. Your LBX just so happens to have to save the world. Level 5 say that you’ll have over 2,500 parts to choose from for customization in The Little Battlers. Here’s a new trailer with examples:



The Little Battlers will allow for battles from 2-4 players. Level 5 are going to include an actual plastic model kit of the AX-00, a prototype of your robot in the game, that you’ll have to build. You can catch the last major trailer for the game here.
