Initially launched in 1999, Beyblade was one of the most popular toys available in the market. The spinning toys were introduced by Takara first, and later, the company merged with an entertainment company called Tomy in 2006. The concept of Beyblades is similar to a board game called Battling Tops that was introduced in 1968.
Over the years, Beyblades gained a massive following, with more and more people following the game. Looking at its popularity, the company decided to launch a game comic book series based on the toy. In 2002, the American toy and gaming company Hasbro started selling Beyblades internationally under license from Takara Tomy. Along with this, they also released a coordinated country-by-country release of the TV series.
In August 2008, Takara Tomy decided to release Metal Fight Beyblade, the first significant update in the series ever since its introduction in the market. In July 2015, the series received its third incarnation with Beyblade Burst. The series got so popular that specific rules were published to play the game.
Game Rules for Beyblade Burst Metal Fury
Hasbro released the Beyblade Burst Metal Fury game guidelines between two or more people. Every player is allowed up to three Beyblades, but they cannot change parts once the match has started. They have the flexibility to choose any Beyblade for a battle.
According to the rules, the first player who receives three points wins the match. The points were awarded based on the looks of the Beyblade and how it performs in the game. These were the original set of rules introduced by Hasbro for Beyblade Burst Metal Fury:
- A person gets one point if the opponent's Beyblade stops spinning.
- A person receives one point if the opponent's Beyblade is knocked out or falls in the pocket of the stadium.
- A player is awarded two points if the opponent's top is "burst" during a battle.
In case if both the Beyblades get knocked out of the ring, stop spinning simultaneously, or burst at the same time, then no points are awarded to the player.
Different types of attacks in a Beyblade Burst Metal Fury game
The three kinds of Beyblades attacks style in the Beyblade Burst Metal Fury game are:
- Attack: The Beyblade Burst Metal Fury specializes in attacking other Beyblades. This type of attack is done to knock out the opponent's Beyblade as fast as possible but at the cost of poor stamina.
- Defense: The defensive play specializes in knocking other Beyblades. These types of Beyblades are heavier in weight which deflects the opponent causing them to slow down.
- Stamina/Endurance: These endurance-based Beyblades are heavy on stamina. These types of Beyblades are used to out-spin the enemy Beyblade. These Beyblades are made to last longer against other kinds of Beyblades.
- Balance: These types of Beyblades are specialized in a combination of all three. This gives them no strength or weakness as they use a mix of attack, defense, and stamina to do the play.
Beyblade Burst Metal Fury is one of the most successful and long-running toys from the Beyblade series line.
