This week, Famitsu revealed that a brand new entry in the Medabots series was in the works for the Nintendo 3DS.
Called Medabots 9, the game will feature a new cast of characters, with Tenma as the protagonist. It begins with Tenma getting trapped, and then getting some help from a mysterious Medabot he doesn’t recognise (which is apparently the main enemy).While escaping, Tenma see a strange man also leaving, and he meets him several days later at a school meeting.
Famitsu magazine gives us the name of several characters:
- Lapis (Mio’s Medabot)
- Sango (Kunigiku’s Medabot)
We also have the name of several staff members:
- Shinto Kamichi (Character design)
- Horuma Rin (Medabot design)
- Masaki Wachi (Story, also worked on the Garo: Guren no Tsuki anime series)
Medabots 9 will have over 300 Medabots, as well as the 3 vs 3 battle system the series is known for. According to the developers, the game’s development is also complete (80%), which isn’t all too surprising since it will be released on December 24th in Japan. First print copies will include a soundtrack CD.
Here’s the first official screenshots for the game:
Medabot 9: Kabuto Ver. / Kuwagata Ver. (3DS) will come out on December 24th in Japan.
