Activision has announced plans to release games based on the Bakugan toy and cartoon line for Wii, DS, Xbox 360, PS3, and PS2 (something had to be non-PSP-related today!). The first game will be released this fall.

The Bakugan toy line focuses on a game in which spring-loaded action figures pop out of a spherical shape when rolled onto metal game cards. We've never looked into it, but it sounds kind of awesome in theory! The press release says that the NOW Production-developed game, which apparently uses a similar game design across platforms, will feature "intense battles, the ability to create your own Brawler, cartoon quality graphics and multiplayer combat." Not too intense, we hope -- for the kids' sake.
