LBX / Danball Senki Returns! Sort of!

DMM Games and Level-5 have announced Soukou Musume (Armored Girls), a new simulation RPG based on Level-5’s Danball Senki license planned for release across PC browser this winter in Japan, followed by iOS and Android in spring 2018.

The game features “countless beautiful girls” wearing the parts of Little Battler eXperience (LBX) robots. While mainly centered around five girls, a total of 60 characters are planned to appear. Additionally, there is an armor destruction system in which girls’ LBX parts will be destroyed when attacked, exposing their skin.

Sōkō Musume itself is planned as a multimedia franchise, with planned plastic models from Kotobukiya, a manga in Shogakukan's CoroCoro Aniki magazine, and an anime from DMM Pictures. The staff at the press conference didn't specify the format of the anime, but gaming news website Inside Games reported the "broadcast schedule" of the anime isn't yet determined.


The armors/and main characters confirmed thus far are: Achilles, The Emperor, Joker, Kunoichi, and Hunter.

This series contains examples of:

  • Adaptational Sexuality: While it is difficult to say whether or not the LBX in the original series had a specific gender even if certain models such as Amazoness and Kunoichi are catered to girls, this time, all of the main characters who use the armor confirmed thus far are all considered female with the exception of the Vector opponents.
  • Badass Adorable: All of the girls, especially Joker for her childish moe, and can still cut down her opponents with her scythe.
  • Channel Hop: A rare video game example. Instead of being a handheld game, this time, its a mobile game app.
  • Clothing Damage: There is an armor destruction system in which girls’ LBX parts will be destroyed when attacked, exposing their skin.

  • Drop the Hammer: Emperor also uses a gigantic mace hammer in similar to her canon LBX frame.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: As usual, Achilles's armor is an exact version of the White Knight frame of Achilles.
  • Knife Nut: Kunoichi has two kodachi that she uses in combat.
  • Spin-Off: Armored Girls is essentially a spinoff off-spring of Danball Senki. The Little Battlers Experience (aka) LBX are now the armor where the female characters will be clad in parts from the LBX robots.
