Beyblade: Metal Fury spinoff to debut in N. America this fall

Hasbro's official Beyblade YouTube channel began streaming a teaser video for the upcoming Beywheelz spinoff television series on Friday.

The upcoming series is a new "chapter" in the Beyblade: Metal Fury (Metal Fight Beyblade 4D) television anime series. The Beywheelz story has not aired in Japan or any other country before, and it will premiere first in North America. The Canadian entertainment company Nelvana announced the Beywheelz chapter in March.

Beywheelz is a separate storyline set "in the futuristic city of Destection where our hero, Sho, is champion of the Beywheelz World Tournament! This peaceful city is home to exciting and challenging battles between friends and allies until suddenly the city is attacked by an evil Beywheelz army called the Dominators."

The original Metal Fight Beyblade 4D anime premiered last April with 26 22-minute episodes and 26 11-minute episodes. However, Nelvana states that Beyblade: Metal Fury and Beywheelz combined will have 52 episodes. According to a document published by the Writer's Guild of Canada, at least 13 episodes of the Beywheelz series have been planned for production. Pioneer Production, a Japanese anime subcontracting studio, lists Beywheelz in its production roster.

Nelvana recently revealed that Beywheelz will debut in fall 2012.
