Activision and Corus Entertainment Inc.’s Nelvana Enterprises announced today the fall release of Bakugan Battle Brawlers: Defenders of the Core for Nintendo DS, Wii, PSP, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. This sequel to the 2009 hit Bakugan Battle Brawlers, once again based on the television series and Spin Master’s toy, blends fast and fluid fighting tactics with real time strategy elements to bring the monsters to life on a breathtaking scale.
“The ever-growing number of Bakugan fans told us they wanted more action and direct control over their brawlers,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “So we built Bakugan Battle Brawlers: Defenders of the Core around real time 3D action featuring customizable Bakugan that are over six stories in height, in wide open destructible environments. Never before have Bakugan brawls been this massive.”
In Bakugan Battle Brawlers: Defenders of the Core, players will create a new hero and lead the brawlers on an epic adventure to save Earth’s cities from Spectra and his Vexos minions. Players will discover a whole new aspect of Bakugan by being given complete control over their creatures when taking on their opponents as Bakugan transform from small balls into towering creatures. In the midst of intense battles, players will find themselves bravely exploring dangerous and dark areas to stop the evil spirits that are sucking the life force from the world. Players will unlock all-new levels and characters as they unearth hidden clues and defeat opponents in the quest to save the world from ultimate destruction. Bakugan Battle Brawlers: Defenders of the Core also features split-screen multiplayer action in three different game modes in the console versions, and linked multiplayer on Nintendo DS and PSP system. Coupled with real-time battle gameplay, this will be the first time that players can duke it out with their Bakugan in head-to-head duels, free for all, and strategic destruction battles.
