LBX: LITTLE BATTLERS EXPERIENCE

Level 5/Nintendo



Little boxes in the games shop, little boxes filled with tech attacky...

Forget all that cute and cuddly Pokéstuff – well, except for the general gameplay - for Little Battlers eXperience is hardcore. Robot hardcore. AIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Ahem. Well, this action JRPG fighty experience does share similarities with the “gotta collect ’em all” classic. But with teensy battling robots we reckon many a child is going to think that LBX is a whole lot cooler.

Bummer then that they’re banned for being too dangerous.

Unbummer then that your dad invented a fortified cardboard box that can safely enclose the feisty little machines.

Bummer that he then disappeared.

Anyway, you’re a young boy named Van Yamato. Well, you are in the game. Despite your dad’s cleverness, due to his disappearance your mum forbids you to have your own LBX. So, you do what any young kid who wants something they’re not supposed to have does – you play with them behind your mother’s back.

Cue a story involving secret technology in the LBX doobries that some nefarious organisation wants, in order to be, well, nefarious with. Oh, and lots of fighting, because that’s basically what it’s all about. Think localised Transformers, except they don’t transform, and they’re all small and stuff. But hey, harness their power and you can save the world!

The whole thing’s super-customisable, with enough permutations to make a weaker brain break – seriously, it’s not for the faint of mathematics. From the inane such as looks to the meat and potatoes such as weaponry, you’ve everything at your disposal to construct a lean, mean, almost unseen fighting machine. Assuming that you can understand it all.

LBX can be a bit repetitive, but at least the robots don’t all look just the same...

take me back to the start...
