“Bakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestoria’ Coming in Spring
On the heels of a movie announced, TMS Entertainment has said their sequel series Bakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestoria will also be coming in 2009. The 26-episode anime will begin airing in the spring, according to Animenation.
Bakugan Battle Brawlers was originally a 52-episode series that debuted in Japan in April 2007 and on the Cartoon Network in February.
Spin Master Toys and Nelvana are co-producing the new series as they did the original and it will also have ties to the internationally popular game, which combines elements of collectible card games and traditional games like marbles. It has grown quickly leading to a wide array of licensed merchandise including fumetti-like books from Del Rey.
As a result, Universal quickly snapped up the film rights earlier this week.
