Little Battlers eXperience Premieres Next Month On Nicktoons
Dentsu Entertainment have announced the launch date for the Little Battlers eXperience anime on Nicktoons in the US. The show premieres on August 24th at 10AM ET. According to the press release, the 26-episode adaptation was produced by Dentsu in partnership with Rollman Entertainment. The brand’s western debut will be at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con.
In promotion of the impending launch, Nicktoons have launched the show’s webpage. It contains two videos (which are embedded above) alongside a description of the show and its characters:
Van Yamano wanted an LBX robot more than anything else in the world, but his mother always refused. And then one day fate brought him his very own LBX named Achilles. A naturally gifted LBX player, Van soon finds himself battling to free his missing father from the clutches of an evil organization. But what Van doesn’t know is that his LBX Achilles holds the key to the fate of the entire world. He will soon find himself caught in the midst of a vast conspiracy for global domination with the highest ranks of power. It’s up to Van to defend the world from tyranny depending solely on his own unique abilities and his LBX robots.

Ami Kawamura -> Amy Cohen
Kazuya Aoshima -> Kaz Walker
Hanzou Gouda -> Hanz Gordon
