Danbōru Senki W Game to Feature Combining Robots
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for the Danbōru Senki W sequel game revealed that the PlayStation Portable game will feature combining robots. Players will be able to combine the Perseus, Elysion, and Minerva machines to make the Super LBX machine Sigma Orbis. The LBX machines of the game's three main characters transform into the robot that features new attacks.
Level-5 is developing the "plastic model craft role-playing game" as a full sequel to the original Danbōru Senki (Little Battlers eXperience) PlayStation Portable game that shipped in Japan last year. The player controls tiny battle robots called LBX (Little Battler eXperience) as they battle it out in dioramas built from reinforced cardboard. ("Danbōru Senki" literally means "cardboard warriors.")
The game developer also began streaming a 15-second television commercial for the Danbōru Senki Baku Boost game on Wednesday. The ad reveals that the game will cost 4,400 yen (about US$55) and ship in Japan on July 5. The game's opening theme song "Sanmiittai" (Trinity) by Little Blue Box features in the video.
Danbōru Senki Baku Boost will be an upgraded Nintendo 3DS version of the Danbōru Senki Boost PlayStation Portable game that shipped in Japan on November 23. Danbōru Senki Boost is itself an upgrade of the original Danbōru Senki game. Hiroki Maekawa will perform the ending theme song for Danbōru Senki Baku Boost.
Level-5 began streaming the first promotional video for Danbōru Senki Baku Boost earlier this month.
The Danbōru Senki W television anime premiered in Japan on January 18, one week after the finale of the first Danbōru Senki series. The anime also features theme songs by Little Blue Box and Maekawa.
