Games come in all shapes and sizes and one of the most popular gifts for Christmas this year was the Beyblade Burst. It may not be a video game but it acts just like one with a digital app so that players can interchange components and scan in thier own beyblades.
The new bursts are a big upgrade on the orginal Beyblades from 2011 giving players the ability to upgrade and interchange sections of the spinning top to create more powerful beyblades and do battle in the arena. The Beyblades "burst" on defeat (in various ways, apparentyl there are 5000 combinations).
To accompany the new toy a tv show has been created, The Beyblade Burst animated series give great context to the way you play with the toy and because on its popularity kids will be after this new and improved frachise all through 2017.
The Beyblade Burst is hours of fun and it's nice to see kids playing with these tangable exciting exploding spinning tops that bring laughs and excitement at Christmas time.
Well.. not just kids.. I gave it a fair crack on Christmas morning as well ;)
