The Bakugan card game was a phenomenon in several countries of the world, while the animated series has not stopped airing and will premiere new seasons in the future. As revealed by the development team, Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia has been conceived as a core product within the series, not a mere spin-off.
It is an action role-playing game that does not directly follow the story of the television series. Instead, the developers have chosen to narrate a new storyline that complements and expands the audiovisual product. This adventure puts us in the shoes of a character who will soon make friends with his partner Bakugan. From then on, players will have the opportunity to team up, customize and equip the Bakugan, as well as map out the strategies that will enable them to succeed on the journey to become the Champion of Vestroia.
