The latest instalment in the Pokemon-style, mech-battling franchise has arrived on the Game Boy Advance, this time offering an RPG twist to the usual collecting, building and fighting proceedings. Again, two versions are available, both fundamentally the same game, but featuring different Medaparts and Medals.
To set the scene, it's been a few years since a diabolical group called the Rubberobo gang tried to take over the world. Thwarted by the heroic Medafighter Henry, the gang disbanded and there was peace across the land. It was only a matter of time, however, before the inevitable second attempt would happen, hence this tale tells of how a shadowy figure builds the gang back up for world domination through the misuse of Medabots. Tut tut!
Quite fortunately for the six billion defenceless citizens of planet Earth, there's a young lad by the name of Ikki. A lively and easy-going kind of a guy, Ikki has always dreamed of being the World Champion Medafighter and, through a fortunate twist of fate, it seems than now he has his chance.
Join Ikki as he begins his journey as a Medafighter and tries to save his hometown of Riverview City from the evil Rubberobo Gang. Ikki must solve various mysteries with the help of his friends and the Phantom Renegade. Interact with characters and control Medabots from the popular animated TV series. Can Ikki save the world from the treacherous Rubberobo Gang and become the number one Medafighter?
