NCS Product Synopsis
Update: July 15, 2010
«©NCSX» Konami's Battle Rondo MMORPG is a game universe designed to engender interest in a line of toys dubbed "Busou Shinki" which Konami peddles in Japan. One could call the MMORPG an elaborate gimmick that creates buzz, generates toy sales, and imparts depth to the toy figures with somewhat interesting background stories. Sorta like what the Transformers cartoons did for the Transformers toys.

   In the Battle Rondo game, players enter a code that's included with a Busou Shinki toy which creates a female robot who fights other female robots in turn-based arena combat. The robots can be upgraded with performance enhancing parts, weapons, and
armor to bump up their offensive and defensive capabilities against opponents.

   The new Busou Shinki: Battle Masters for the PSP is an offshoot of the Battle Rondo universe but instead of turn-based tactical interplay, Battle Masters is a 3D action game which is fraught with lengthy interactive conversation sequences. Previews of the game evince lazy references to the PSP Gundam games with melee attacks, blazing projectile launches, jumping, jetting, and a versatile camera which takes in all of the action. Matches are punctuated by the yelping of young girls who squeak and utter assorted sayings while engaging in battle. Depending on your tolerance level for the snippy sounds of female "yelping," the PSP volume button might see some heavy action.
