It has been quite some time since I’ve heard head or tale about Medabots. The series, which was vastly popular in the anime rush of the late 90’s (Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Beyblades, etc.) has lost some of the lime light to newer series (take it away Yo-Kai Watch), however a new game — Metabots: Girls Mission — has been announced.
According to the latest issue of Famitsu, this game will focus on a group of girls in the series (20 in all) trying to win the latest Medabots tournament and will feature action-adventure gameplay. Much like Pokemon titles and Fire Emblem: Fates, the game will launch with two versions of the same game: Kabuto and Kuwagata editions.
All Robattles are handled in teams of two, allowing you to team up with another female friend to boost friendship levels and bonds that power up your Medabots. These buddy characters can be controlled locally in a story co-op mode with other friends who have the game. Additionally, the game allows for one-on-one battles via online play with friends or random players.
Medabots: Girls Mission is aiming to feature over 100 different Medabots, each with customizable body parts that brings its own unique features. The game is planning to release in Japan on March 10, 2016 exclusively for Nintendo 3DS; there is no indication on whether the game will be coming West. Check out the image below from Famitsu:
