Beyblade is going Nintendo
7/16/2010 1:04:00 PM
Hudson has the license for the popular Beyblade: Metal Fusion tv show, so naturally they're turning it into a game for the Wii and DS. Beyblade: Metal Fusion Battle Fortress will be coming to Wii while the DS is getting its own Metal Fusion game. The Wii game has its own storyline that is complimentary to the show. It also lets you carry blades around on a Wii remote's internal memory, like Miis, a feature that hasn't been used nearly enough in my opinion. Both games will be out for the holiday, and will appear at the San Diego Comic Con next week.
HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT TO INTRODUCE GAME BASED ON THE HIT ANIMATED TV SERIES BEYBLADE: METAL FUSION TO NINTENDO’S Wii CONSOLE
Wii and Nintendo DS Players Battle Strategically This Holiday Season
SAN MATEO, CA – July 15, 2010 – Fans of the hit animated action TV series BEYBLADE: Metal Fusion will not have to wait long for their chance to be recognized among the top Beyblading champions from the show. Hudson Entertainment, the North and South American subsidiary of HUDSON SOFT, will bring BEYBLADE: Metal Fusion – Battle Fortress to Wii™ this holiday season along with BEYBLADE: Metal Fusion for the Nintendo DS™ family of hand-held systems.
The action is more thrilling than ever with BEYBLADE: Metal Fusion – Battle Fortress for Wii. The game features a complete game-specific story with the original characters from the show. Players find themselves in the midst of a disappearance of the world’s most powerful Beybladers. Sucked into a giant fortress, players must battle robot bladers and discover the mystery behind the abduction.
BEYBLADE: Metal Fusion – Battle Fortress is equipped with four-player “Battle Mode” competition allowing players to face off against three other human or AI controlled enemies, or play co-operatively with allies. By using the Wii Remote™, players can save and carry the blades created to friends’ houses for competition. With customizable stadiums, players can choose from a variety of terrains and shapes for battle. Players will also have the chance to become the No. 1 Beyblader by utilizing special attacks and winning strategies. The television series from Nelvana and d-rights Inc. launched in Canada in May 2010 on YTV and debuted in the United States on Cartoon Network in June.
