Nelvana funds more western exclusive Beyblade spinoffs
Despite Metal Fight Beyblade ending in Japan this past January Nelvana will keep the franchise spinning as it has announced two additional series in the franchise, BeyRaiderz Shogun and BeyWarriors Cyborg. This is in addition to the twenty six episodes of Metal Fight Beyblade: Zero-G being dubbed as Beyblade: Shogun Steel. The company gave no plot descriptions for either spinoff but BeyRaiderz Shogun is set for a spring 2014 broadcast with 13 episodes with BeyWarriors Cyborg coming that fall with 26 episodes and two one hour specials. BeyRaiderz Shogun may have been the previously announced second season of last year’s BeyWheelz western spinoff. Hasbro plans on releasing BeyWarriors toys this fall.
I guess I should also mention that the first “lost” episode of Zero-G/Shogun Steel premieres in South Korea this week.
