The toy and video game worlds have collided once again this week, as Konami announced the release of Beyblade: Metal Masters for Nintendo DS. This is the latest game in the spinning battle-top franchise’s run, and, having not played any of them in the past, I can’t possibly tell you how it differs from any of its predecessors. What I can tell you is that Metal Masters lets you customize your own Beyblade tops and battle characters from the series in the Beyblade battle arena.

The video game is also a little more involved than battles using the real toy because you can actually interact with your top mid-battle, with timed attacks. The whole objective is to get your opponent’s Beyblade to stop. The game also features special attacks from the show, which I’m pretty sure are also not possible to pull off with the real toy. Players can also play by themselves, or challenge friends in the Wireless Battle Modes. Konami has released both standard and Collector’s Edition versions of the game, available for $29.99 USD/CAD and $34.99 USD/CAD respectively. Each Collector’s Edition includes a retail-specific Beyblade from Hasbro and codes to unlock that Beyblade and its parts within the game.
