Medabot Smartphone Game Unveils Title, Story
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official YouTube channel for Imagineer's Medabots (Medarot) franchise began streaming a video on Thursday that revealed that the franchise's new smartphone game is titled Medarot S: Unlimited Nova, and will debut sometime this fall or winter for iOS and Android in Japan.
The game's story begins when the protagonist (seen below) comes into possession of a Medabot through a certain incident. He joins the "Medalympics," a robot battle tournament where the winner gets to have one wish granted.
Imagineer subsidiary SoWhat is developing the game.
The first Medabots (Medarot) game inspired a television anime series by Bee Train in 1999, and a sequel series titled Medarot Damashii (Medabots Spirits) in 2000. ADV licensed the series in North America, and Nelvana produced a dub for the first series, which aired in the Fox Kids network in 2001, before moving to ABC Family. Medabots Spirits aired on ABC Family in 2003.
Delta Arts, the studio behind many of the recent Medabots games, shut down in April 2016.
