Beyblade Burst gets Nintendo Switch, mobile games


Beyblade just keep on ripping. Sunrights has announced a new iOS/Android title based on the Beyblade Burst series. Developed by former DHX Media subsidiary Epic Story Interactive, Beyblade Burst Rivals will launch in fall 2018 with an initial rollout in North America, South America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Sunrights describes the app as:

Beyblade Burst Rivals (working title) is a fast-paced match-3 puzzle battle game for iOS and Android based on the hit boy’s action property, Beyblade Burst, which follows the adventures of Valt Aoi, Shu Kurenai and the rest of the gang as they strive to become the world’s greatest Bladers.

The new Beyblade Burst Rivals app will allow each gamer to choose their favorite character and follow them on their quest to become a Master Blader as they enter Beyblade Burst tournaments, use rare and powerful Beys and participate in epic battles. Players can collect an arsenal of Beys and upgrade them, unlocking special Bey techniques that provide a decisive edge for the ultimate battle. The key is to use strategy to defeat opponents and strive for Ring Out Finishes, Survivor Finishes, and epic Burst Finishes. Do you have what it takes to become the best Blader in the world? Grab your Bey and LET IT RIP!

This is the first licensed Beyblade Burst video game. Hasbro produced their own toy tie-in that launched alongside the brand reboot in 2016.

While still in private beta, a few Beyblade YouTubers have already gotten their hands on the game and have shared footage of it.

As western fans get a new mobile game, Japanese fans are preparing for the franchise’s Nintendo Switch debut. Game publisher FuRyu has announced Beyblade Burst: Battle Zero.  While details on the game are limited, it’ll be due out on October 25 in Japan for 6,980 yen via retail and 6,280 yen via eShop download. FuRyu’s two prior Nintendo 3DS Beyblade games have included a physical top with purchase, so it’s likely this one will too. No word on if the title will make it overseas, though FuRyu’s earlier titles haven’t.

Sunrights has been busy with Beyblade Burst licensing. The company recently signed a deal to bring branded toys to Subway kids meals globally. The second season of the new series is currently airing internationally. The third started last month in Japan.
