Just in time for the holiday season I received a complimentary set of Battroborg Warriors. As a fan of old Japan, I can now travel back-in-time to the Neo-Edo Period with my Robot Warrior Samurai and Ninja Battle Set from TOMY Toys. These guys are the perfect toy for any robot fanatic- old or young. Controlled by a wireless samurai sword styled handle controller, you mimic the sword actions in the air to control your robot similar to modern gaming systems. They are even equipped with special moves if you can master the right combo! (As you can see from my video below, I have not mastered that combo yet…) The point of the game is to K.O. the other player first, (not yourself as I demonstrate below with my incredible ninja-like skills) and win the championship!
Because it’s hard to play alone, you can set one Battroborg to be computer operated for a short time by pushing and holding a special button on the remote. This allows the single player to practice on their own without a friend. One cool thing about Battroborgs is that there are many different sets with different characters. These characters should be interchangeable as they are all operated wirelessly on different channels. Imagine! Viking V.S. Samurai!
This particular set Battroborg Warriors Samurai V.S. Ninja comes complete with both the Samurai and Ninja Battroborg, two controllers, and one battle arena. It has a suggested retail price of 69.99. Please visit the TOMY toys website to view all of their Battroborg playsets!
