Kids are obsessed with Roblox, the multiplayer video game that allows users to program games that others can experience and enjoy. Recently, the Roblox platform has been giving thanks to its fans by hosting a lineup of digital experiences, including online performances by Lil Nas X and KSI; a recreation of the Italian Gucci Gardens that’s open for players to visit; and more. Now, Roblox is expanding its metaverse even more with the premiere of episode 317 of Spin Master’s Bakugan: Geogan Rising.
“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,” says Spin Master’s Executive Vice President, Marketing Laura Henderson. “We can’t wait to introduce another dimension of Bakugan storytelling within Roblox and deepen our fans’ connection to the Bakugan franchise with this immersive new virtual experience.”
Bakugan is a global battling franchise that includes a toy line, a card game, a video game, and an anime adventure series on Netflix. The first half of the Bakugan: Geogan Rising series debuted on Netflix on April 15, following brawlers who band together to fight off a powerful enemy determined to break the bond between Earth and Vestroia, the Bakugan’s home planet. Roblox will help kick off part two by hosting the full-length episode premiere. On Sept. 8, kids can join the Bakugan hub within Roblox, grab some popcorn, and watch the premiere of the full episode.
This will be the first full-length episode of a show airing on Roblox. The rest of the new season will premiere on Netflix on Sept. 15.
