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.
Beast Saga: The Strongest Clash in the Colosseum will be available on July 25 in Japan.
