Activision and Nelvana Enterprises announced the spring release of Bakugan Battle Trainer for Nintendo DS, a brand new entry in the hit Bakugan video game franchise that lets fans interact with their Battle Brawlers like never before. The game introduces players to a different part of the Bakugan world by putting an emphasis on mastering the secrets of Bakugan training by improving their skills, leveling up G-Power and then ultimately going up against challengers in a familiar but innovative way.
“Bakugan Battle Brawlers was one of the best-selling Nintendo DS games of the holiday 2009 season, and the toy and TV show continue to climb in popularity,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “It’s thrilling to work with such a hot property and bring the Bakugan universe to life in another way with Bakugan Battle Trainer.”
In Bakugan Battle Trainer, Bakugan fans find out first hand what happens before and after the brawls. Players master the secrets of training their Bakugan while choosing how to improve their skills and abilities with an in-depth training mode that helps their Bakugan excel at all aspects of battling. Ultimately, players send their rigorously trained creatures into battle with a mission to free their imprisoned brethren from the enemy’s hold. Beyond this ingenious style of play, the classic elements of Bakugan are in place – collect up to 30 creatures, intense battle action, and the ability to improve your rank by defeating opponents.
“Activision has been the ideal partner in taking Bakugan to the video game space,” said Doug Murphy, President, Nelvana and GM, Corus Kids. “The response from fans to last year’s Bakugan Battle Brawlers was incredibly enthusiastic, so we eagerly look forward to our next step with Bakugan Battle Trainer.”
