4th TV anime series based on Bandai's Battle Spirits card game revealed

The broadcaster Nagoya TV confirmed on its website that Battle Spirits: Heroes, the latest television anime series based on Bandai's Battle Spirits card game, will premiere in Japan this fall.

The Japanese online retailer Amiami had listed three card game releases that will be tied to a "new anime lead character of Battle Spirits" in mid-September. Battle Spirits: Brave, the third Battle Spirits television anime series, premiered in Japan last September.

The Battle Spirits anime franchise launched with the 50-episode Battle Spirits: Shōnen Toppa Bashin series on September 7, 2008. The Battle Spirits: Shōnen Gekiha Dan follow-up series premiered on September 13, 2009. The anime projects adapt the original trading card game, in which cards represent dragons, demons, birds, insects, and other spirits that the players can control in battles. Bandai imported the game to America in 2009.
