Activision has announced that it is to develop games based on the hit toy and action animated television series Bakugan.

The first Bakugan game will be released for Wii, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2 and the PS3 in the Autumn of 2009.

Bakugan tells the story of Dan and his friends as they battle their Bakugan Brawlers to save the planet of Vestroia and, ultimately, Earth from destruction.

The video games, currently under development by Japanese studio NOW Production, promise to render the Bakugan elements into "mind-blowing digital experiences".

Acitvision says everything a Bakugan enthusiast and gamer would love will be in the games, including "intense battles, the ability to create your own Brawler, cartoon quality graphics and multiplayer combat".
