    The first Beyblade X game adaptation.

    FuRyu have announced Beyblade X: XONE, a Beyblade X battle action game adaptation for Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. The game will launch on November 14 in Japan, and a worldwide release was not announced. 

    Beyblade X is the long-anticipated return of the Beyblade franchise. The series will continue the toy line’s story initially established with the 1999 Beyblade, 2008’s Beyblade: Metal Fusion, and 2015’s Beyblade Burst series. The series initially premiered in Japan on October 6, 2023, and it will premiere globally in summer 2024.

    Beyblade X: XONE Offers a New Beyblade Experience

    The new Beyblade X: XONE game features the signature gameplay offered by the Beyblade spinning top toy game. Stadiums will feature X Lines that were introduced in the anime series, and battles will feature the X Dash mechanic and an “Active Gauge.” What’s more, players can expect online battles for the first time in the Beyblade series. The game’s single-player mode will feature a new story with characters that are completely original as well (Thanks, Gematsu). 

    In regards to the anime, the Beyblade X staff includes Katsuhito Akiyama as chief director, and OLM director Sotsu Terada Hikaru Muno is credited for original series concept and scenario assistance. Kazuho Hyodo is the series’ scriptwriter. Posuka Demizu is the original character designer, while Yoshihiro Nagamori is the chief animation character designer.

    The Japanese cast includes Sōma Saitō as X Kurosu, Shūichirō Umeda as Bird Kazami, and Ruriko Noguchi as Multi Nanairo. Popular J-rock band ONE OK ROCK will perform the anime’s opening theme, “Prove.” Additionally, aespa performs the anime’s ending theme song, “ZOOM ZOOM.”

    This past June, Kakegurui manga artist and writer Homura Kawamoto, Hikaru Muno (High Card), and Posuka Demizu (The Promised Neverland) launched the original Beyblade X manga in Shogakukan’s Monthly Coro Coro Comics magazine. Kawamoto and his younger brother Muno are the series’ writers, while Demizu provides the illustrations.
