Box Art: Bakugan Battle Brawlers (NDS)
Release Date: October 20, 2009.
Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) announced today an exclusive Bakugan collector’s ball will come packaged into the Nintendo DS Collector’s Edition of the Bakugan Battle Brawlers videogame. This Collector’s Edition will be available at key retailers the week of the game’s release, but since the battle ball is being produced in limited quantities, Bakugan fans are advised to pre-order the videogame to ensure they get it.
The Bakugan ball that players will get in the Nintendo DS Collector’s Edition is Naga, a rogue Bakugan who wants to control all the power in Vestoria. Naga is most recognizable for his skeletal body and split nose. Conniving and greedy, he tried to absorb the two energy cores, Infinite and Silence, but only absorbed the Silent Core, and in the process exploded Vestroia. In the hit animated TV show, he is Hal-G’s Bakugan.
“One look on eBay will show you how fanatics obsess over rare Bakugans – we’re sure the Naga battle ball will become one of the most prized of all,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “Bakugan players and gamers are getting the opportunity to score something special while picking up the most entertaining Nintendo DS game of the year!”
Bakugan is based on the story of Dan and his friends whose lives were forever changed when mysterious cards fell from the sky. Creating a game from the cards where powerful creatures known as Bakugan battle, it isn’t long before they discover that their hobby is much more than just a simple pastime. Utilizing special game cards Bakugan battle masters roll spheres onto the cards, which activate and transform into Bakugan “battle brawling” action figures. The toy line, developed by Spin Master Ltd., has won three “Toy of the Year” awards from the Toy Industry Association. Bakugan is also an animated cartoon series airing on Cartoon Network in the United States, TELETOON in Canada and many international broadcasters.
