Japan has been a country that has always had a big say in the world of toys and games, having had incredibly successful franchises such as those of Pokemon and Digimon, which started out as video games and then later expanded to collectible cards and toys, as well as anime and even movies, or other popular franchises such as Sonic and Mario, who are competing for flagship characters from Sega and Nintendo, and we can’t forget about another popular series, that of Yu-Gi-Oh, probably the biggest trading card game in the world.
There is another franchise of toys from Japan that we have to talk about since it also managed to expand in various media over the years, and that is Beyblade, which comes out with new toys and new anime series once every few years, and newer generations of children get to discover just how fantastic these spinning tops are. The main factor that made these spinning tops possible is their association with different fictional monsters, as well as having interchangeable parts, so you could customize your top.
The franchise began in 1999, where it had an accompanying manga to the toys, with a 2001 anime adaptation also having been produced, which had been aired all over the world, making kids buy the toys after falling in love with the story, the character, and the fun gameplay of the spinning top battles. Here on our website we have created a great category, and it features games based on all their awesome shows, as well as games based on the toys themselves, so you don’t need real-life spinning tops to enjoy playing the game.
How to play?
The game needs at least two players, and each of them can pick up to three Beyblades to use in each match. It used to be that the first one to get a point wins, but in later series you can play matches with 2, 3, or even more points. You can defeat your player by making their battle top not spin while yours still does, by spinning and throwing theirs out of the ring, or by making yours into three more pieces, such as in the Burst series.
There are three main types of Beyblades: Attack, Defense, and Stamina. The Attack is weak to Defense, Defense to Stamina, and Stamina to Attack. There can also be Beyblades that balance these attributes instead of having one more developed than the other one. Each player uses the one that fits best with their strategy for winning.
Beyblade Rip Zone is another interesting game, a bubble shooter game, where instead of the regular bubbles you are used to you are going to shoot spinning tops, having to match all the ones that are of the same color. Or, if you are into sports, join your favorite characters and play the games such as basketball, or improve your skills with the bow and arrow.
There is even a game where you can go snowboarding together with Gingka, so diversity is never something that our Beyblade Games for kids category is going to miss. We’re sure that no matter what your age is, your gender, or what part of the world you come from, you will find fun to have on this page, so check out just how amazing these games are right now!
