Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia

System: Switch
Release date: November 3, 2020
Developer: WayForward
Publisher: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment


The last time Bakugan saw any sort of video game outside of mobile devices was back in 2011 with Rise of the Resistance on DS. Almost nine years later, to the dot, the series is back with Champions of Vestroia. I don’t think Bakugan ever had that sort of grip or longevity something like Yu-Gi-Oh! or even Beyblade has, but it’s gathered enough of a following to warrant continued support of the property so many years later, especially now with the new Switch game. The anime continues on with Bakugan: Armored Aliance following a sort of “reboot” with Battle Planet prior to that, so Champions of Vestroia just adds to a big push from SEGA Toys and Spin Master for the series to return to the forefront where it once sat as Property of the Year in 2009.

Warner Bros. Games and WayForward have shared a launch trailer for Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia ahead of its release next week. Watch it below.

Feel free to watch our discussion below and more from our video series will be coming soon!

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, Oni Dino finally gets his hands on a copy of Ring Fit and realizes he’s super out of shape. Galen eschews social distancing and parties with Jackbox. The gang covers news from rumors to controversies. Oni Dino vividly remembers the cheat code for Lara’s Bum in Tomb Raider II. (Psst… Lara Croft for Smash) Deadly Premonition 2 challenges what a video game is and neither critics nor consumers are in agreement about anything. Galen brings up comparisons of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. And the big discussion is on the Nintendo Treehouse live stream, Bakugan, and how the hype machine bit itself in the butt.
