Project Rising Beelte: A Campaign for the Localization of Medabots 7 on 3DS

Operation Rainfall, Project Rising Beetle: "Does the name Medabots ring a bell? Maybe you were a fan of the anime of the same name that ran on FOX Kids/ABC Family/Jetix/YTV in North and South America in the early-mid 00s? I’m about to blow many of your minds. The anime series that starred a wide eyed Ikki Tenyrou, and his stubborn hotshot of a robot pal Metabee is far from all of what the franchise has to offer. In fact, Medabots known as Medarot in Japan is a long-running series of role-playing games on Nintendo handhelds that originally started in 1997.While Medabots was a successful series in Japan, in the west it’s more known for the anime than the games that inspired it. As such, the only games in the franchise to receive an official English translation were ones tied to the anime series, and of those three games, only one showcased the series trademark battle system (it was Medabots: An RPG Adventure for the Gameboy Advance if you’re asking). Since the release of Medabots: Infinity in 2003 the franchise has seen the release of a wild re-imagining of the first game in the franchise with Shingata Medarot, a franchise rebirth with Medarot DS, and the game we’re currently championing, Medarot 7 for the 3DS all stay Japan-only." (3DS, Medabots 7: Kabuto/Kuwagata)

I think it would be great if this series came out of Japan again. So I hope it does.
