The game will feature an exclusive sneak peek of the new Beyblade: Shogun Steel animated series which is expected to air this fall on Cartoon Network. Rising Star’s even preparing a collector’s edition which includes an exclusive six-piece Wing Pegasus 90WF Beyblade top previously unavailable outside of Japan.
