Press Release for Future Card Buddyfight at Tokyo Toy Show!
A follow-up post on the latest card game from Bushiroad: Future Card Buddyfight!
After the last post, there was a press conference held only on the 14th of June,
during the second business day of the Tokyo Toy Show for the trade show participants.
Let's take a look at some of the highlights during the day!
All the important members of this project, which involves Bushiroad, OLM, and CoroCoro Comic!!
Bushiroad CEO, Mr. Kidani talks about the project passionately during a TV interview.
What exactly is "Future Card Buddyfight"??
It is a trading card game where a new generation of children form a contract with monsters,
also known as their "buddy", and fight as a tag team combination!
The main characteristic of this title is the heavy tie-ins with the moves and expressions in the anime series.
With simple rules so that the monsters and players can fight side by side as a team,
there will most likely be many lessons to be learned along the way.
As mentioned in the earlier post, the following points were also highlighted during the press conference:
1) The card game will be released simultaneously for the Japanese and English versions in 2014!!
2) The TV anime will begin broadcast at the start of 2014!! (In Japan only)
3) The comic series will be serialized in Monthly Coro Coro Comic in winter 2013!! (In Japan only)
More details will be available during Bushiroad's press conference in October 2013,
as well as the "Buddyfight Conference"(tentative) slated for the end of November 2013!!
A few slides from Tokyo Toy Show... sorry, Japanese only at the moment... Xp
Well, the main draw of the game is that its main target audience is elementary school boys,
and that the time required per round is going to be shorter as the game is very straight forward.
Player will become "buddies" with the monsters and fight together!!
Lots of monsters from their own unique worlds!!
