SUNRIGHTS INC., the New York City-based entertainment rights management company, has signed a licensing agreement with Vancouver-based Epic Story Interactive Inc. to develop a BEYBLADE BURST mobile game, giving Bladers yet another way to enjoy and interact with their favorite brand.
Slated to debut in fall 2018 with an initial rollout in North America, South America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, BEYBLADE BURST RIVALS (working title) is a fast-paced match-3 puzzle battle game for iOS and Android based on the hit boy’s action property, BEYBLADE BURST, which follows the adventures of Valt Aoi, Shu Kurenai and the rest of the gang as they strive to become the world’s greatest Bladers.
The new BEYBLADE BURST RIVALS app will allow each gamer to choose their favorite character and follow them on their quest to become a Master Blader as they enter BEYBLADE BURST tournaments, use rare and powerful Beys and participate in epic battles. Players can collect an arsenal of Beys and upgrade them, unlocking special Bey techniques that provide a decisive edge for the ultimate battle. The key is to use strategy to defeat opponents and strive for Ring Out Finishes, Survivor Finishes, and epic Burst Finishes. Do you have what it takes to become the best Blader in the world? Grab your Bey and LET IT RIP!
“With an active, growing and global fan base that has grown up consuming entertainment across devices, the BEYBLADE BURST brand is ripe for partnership with one of the most innovative mobile game studios in the industry.” said Kaz Soeda, Managing Director of SUNRIGHTS INC. “We look forward to working with Epic Story Interactive to add another fun, new dimension to the BEYBLADE BURST experience.”
“BEYBLADE BURST was our top choice to license for the first game developed under the banner of our new company, Epic Story Interactive,” said Ken Faier, El Presidente and CEO. “The property has proven itself over and over again with each new generation of fans, which is what we look for in creating epic, action-packed mobile games. We’re excited for this opportunity to deliver an incredibly fun game experience that will be enjoyed by millions of BEYBLADE fans of all ages!”
