Bakugan Arcade Battlers (爆丸アーケードバトラーズ?) is an arcade game made in Japan. It is based on Bakugan Battle Brawlers: New Vestroia and was released after the season's debut on TV Tokyo. Some cards are from the Nintendo DS Japanese release, Bakugan: Defenders of the Core.


The Bakugan Arcade Battlers arcade cabinet was first demonstrated at World Hobby Fair 2010 in June 2010. There were a total of four cabinets where event-goers could play the game.[1]

Early versions of the arcade cards, those in the set P-3tL, came with distinct colorful backs, while later releases stayed with the standard blue Japanese Ability Card back design.
