xbeybladeburst_4beyblades.jpg.pagespeed.ic.TUDHGJ3FlzI’ve been out of the Beyblade scene for a while now. Hasbro’s lackluster Legends line and several failed side-products really made me and the kids lose interest. We’d just about put everything Beyblade behind us when we found out on the WBO that Takara-Tomy is launching a new line of the spinning tops in Japan that will release in July. The new line, called Beyblade Burst, revolves around 3 piece Beys that can be broken apart in the arena by a stronger Bey.

Of course there will be a new stadium, new launchers, and even something called the BeyCloud System. A BeyLogger can be hooked up to a mobile phone to track your wins/losses and rank you in the BeyCloud System.

There’s no word of a US release yet.
