posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The Medabots franchise's official portal website launched a countdown on Tuesday that will end on November 28, the 20th anniversary of the launch of Imagineer's original Medabots (Medarot) Game Boy game in Japan.
Imagineer representative Hiroyuki Hashida told Gzbrain Inc.'s Weekly Famitsu magazine in October, "I wonder if we will be able to announce something in coordination with the 20th anniversary on November 28, which is also Medabots Day. We're making various arrangements.”
The franchise will launch the "Shūkan Medarot Tsūshin" (Weekly Medabots News) project for the franchise's 20th anniversary, beginning in late December. The project will include a new Medabots manga series by Hakubayashi titled Medarot Sai ~Reloaded~, as well as a short manga by Rin Horuma tentatively titled "Medarot Short," both of which will launch on the Manga Hotto app in late December.
The project is also seeking original Medabots designs, with a submission deadline of January 8. The winner's design will be showcased in the anniversary project.
