Warner Bros. Games, Spin Master and WayForward have revealed Leonidas, the fan-favourite Bakugan set to appear in the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia.
Born directly within the Doom Dimension, Leonidas has “an amazing yet unknown power and an intense anger toward other Bakugan.” Only through building trust and friendship can he escape his cursed birth and awaken his true power.
The menacing Bakugan has three horns – two over his ears and one in the middle of his muzzle – as well as three toes on each foot, three fingers on each hand and a long tail that ends in an arrow.
This upcoming action role-playing game is pitched as “the ultimate Bakugan brawl,” with the chance to build your team before battling solo or online to become champion.
With an original story that expands on the hit TV series, you will have the chance to befriend powerful creatures known as Bakugan, gear up and customize Bakugan teams for fiercely strategic battles, and master their skills to become the Champion of Vestroia. Players can also play online in head-to-head multiplayer.
Here’s a breakdown of what the game will have to offer:
- Master Your Bakugan Fighting Skills: Become Bakugan Brawling heroes through the game’s highly competitive and deep Action Battle System as players build their best Bakugan teams. Players can collect Bakugan by befriending them while exploring and completing quests. Level them up by battling in Bakugan Brawls and watch them grow more powerful as they evolve.
- Build the Perfect Team: Assemble three of your strongest Bakugan, each with their own customizable abilities, and equip Baku-Gear to form the ultimate team synergy. Bakugan also come in various Factions, which determines their strengths and weaknesses, adding another layer of depth and strategy to the brawl.
- Varied Environments to Explore: Fully explorable 3D world divided into different districts each with dedicated battle environments. Players can interact with other characters, go on quests, and explore with their Bakugan team through locations such as a sunny waterfront, bustling downtown or a factory riddled with nefarious enemies.
- Take on the World: Test your skills against the world in head-to-head Online Multiplayer Brawls using the Bakugan teams you have trained on your adventure.
Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia will release exclusively at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 3rd November 2020.
