Fortnite may be home to plenty of events featuring a variety of big names, but another popular platform will be having an event of their own. The global entertainment company Spin Master has announced that the latest anime for the Bakugan franchise will be the first TV show to premiere a full-length episode on Roblox.
The Bakugan anime, which originally launched in 2007 to promote a variety of toys and games, centered around a group of six kids who come into possession of the titular creatures and must help them save their homeworld of Vestroia. Its current version, Bakugan Battle Planet, started airing on Netflix in 2017 and is currently on its third season, titled Bakugan: Geogan Rising. Episode 317 of season 3 will be airing September 8th on the official Bakugan hub on the Roblox platform. If you do wind up missing it, don't worry; Netfilx will have that episode to watch a week after the event.
Laura Henserson, Spin Master's EVP of Marketing said that "Roblox has become a new way for people to come together through shared experiences and premiering the first full-length series episode on Roblox demonstrates our commitment to our evolving digital-focused approach - helping us reach kids and teens wherever they are." Meanwhile, Christina Wootton, the VP of Brand Partnerships at Roblox, says that "By merging our collective audiences, we are able to offer the Roblox community as well as Bakugan fans new and unique ways to connect and experience entertainment together within the Roblox metaverse."
Bakugan Battle Planet will be airing Episode 317 on Roblox on September 8th, and will later show up on Netflix on September 15th.
