This summer will see a whole host of games hit Japan, but there’s now one more to add: Beast Saga: The Strongest Clash in the Colosseum for the Nintendo 3DS will hit the shelves on July 25. Based on Japanese toy company Takara’s Battle Beasts toy collection from the 80s, the action title will boast a selection of playable characters from the successful multi-media franchise.
So far, only two characters have been confirmed – Liogre and Big Serow – but many more are in the pipeline. In the past, Battle Beasts has been linked to Transformers, as a spin-off to the series, and even went so far as to name their toys ‘Beastformers’. In 2011, Takara announced the Beast Saga line, a successor to the Battle Beasts range. Currently, it is not yet known whether this game will appear on Western shelves, or indeed the eShop.
