Medabots 9 Is A Real Game, Apparently There Were 8 More of Them
Medabots is still a Huge Thing in Japan.
Do you remember Medabots? It didn't seem that terribly popular here in the US when it aired on TV, but kids probably ate it up. I kind of got into it seeing as it had a big Japanese following like Digimon, which I'm excited about, but apparently it amassed a huge amount of fans in Japan, since Medabots 9 Kabuto Version and Medabots 9 Kuwagata Version are both coming out in Japan soon.
The latest issue of Famitsu goes more in-depth about the upcoming title, but it looks like it's going to feature a different protagonist than usual and three-on-three Medabots battles.
This is exactly the type of series I'd assume would do well here considering Pokemon and Custom Robo, but I could be wrong. In any case, additional details will be forthcoming.
