As there are times when pictures and videos can say more about a game than mere words, we bring you the first installment of “Eye-Candy for the Casual Gamer,” a feature that we hope to make ongoing here on Frisky Mongoose, offering screenshots, trailers, and the like for some upcoming casual games – “casual” here being in reference to those games that social and casual gamers might like to play on either a home console (the Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii or PlayStation 3) or handheld (Nintendo DS or Sony PSP). For our first installment, we see a new trailer for Activision’s Bakugan: Defenders of the Core, and a new set of screenshots for Atari’s Blade Kitten.
Activision Reveals First Trailer for Bakugan: Defenders of the Core
In 2009, Activision launched Bakugan Battle Brawlers, and later this year, they look to continue the success seen by said game by releasing Bakugan: Defenders of the Core on all major platforms – the Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, Sony PSP, PlayStation 3 and even Xbox 360.
The game will place you in the role of your own created hero, as you fight against Spectra and his Vexos minions to protect Earth. The game will take you through all new environments, while still maintaining the feeling of the television show, and of course, real world toys themselves. If you have a friend that would like to join in on the action, you can play split-screen multiplayer in three different modes on the console, while handheld players can compete via linked multiplayer.
While no release date has been set for the game thus far, we know that it is expected to hit store shelves this fall. Make sure to check out this first trailer below to see what awaits you if you decide to pick this one up.
Atari Releases New Screens for Blade Kitten
Atari and Krome announced Blade Kitten back in May. Now, a few months later, we’ve been treated to the release of some screenshots for the game, which is set to hit the PC, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network sometime this fall.
The game follows Kit Ballard, a bounty hunter, on her quest to hunt down rogue mechs and “soft targets.” Accompanied by her alien sidekick Skiffy, and wielding her trust weapon the Darque Blade, Kit travels around the world of Hollow Wish, eventually becoming the center of a series of mysterious events. It will be up to you to see that Kit makes it out safely.
