Perhaps you’ve heard about the rule of three? Well, when it comes to BEYBLADE BURST, get ready to make it four!

This year, the world of collectible battle tops is spinning into a new era in which four is the magic number. BEYBLADE BURST QuadDrive is the latest extension of the ever-expanding BEYBLADE brand and that means that everything follows the rule of four. Kids can configure the new QuadDrive tops in four different ways to create four ways to customize, four ways to strategize, four modes to battle, and four modes to win.

Of course, a new season of BEYBLADE BURST means the arrival of a new Beystadium, and QuadDrive does not disappoint! The BEYBLADE BURST QuadDrive Cosmic Vector Battle Set comes with everything that budding Bladers need to get spinning right out of the box.

This set includes the BEYBLADE BURST Cosmic Vector Beystadium, two right/left-spin launchers, two Path Diverters, and two right-spin QuadDrive tops: the Destruction Belfyre B7 G01 QD01 TS18-Q A01 and the Magma Ifritor I7 G03 QD06 TA21-Q B01.

Yes, those numbers are a mouthful, but they’re meaningful. Each number represents one piece of the QuadDrive top that kids can mix and match as they experiment to discover the ultimate combination.

In keeping with that rule of four, the new Beystadium features Quad Levels that amp up the action as kids use their ripcord launchers to send their tops spinning into battle. Path Diverters add to the challenge — and the excitement — as the tops can ricochet off of the sides while spinning toward an explosive conclusion that sends the parts flying!

There are additional BEYBLADE BURST QuadDrive tops to collect (sold separately in single- and double-packs) so that kids can build their arsenal with fresh pieces. It should be noted that mix-and-match performance may vary and not all of the new QuadDrive pieces are compatible with earlier Beyblade tops.

As usual, ADK Emotions NY and Hasbro have delivered another worthy expansion to the BEYBLADE BURST collection, and while the fun is rooted in physical play, there is a digital hook. Kids can scan the code on each QuadDrive top to unleash a digital version of it in a virtual battle on the Beyblade Burst companion app.

Get ready to customize the clash and let it rip in a whole new way!
