In this game, competitors battle in an extraordinary arena with their Beyblades, using their exceptional powers to destroy opposing blades and make themselves virtually unbeatable. Players attempt to battle through a tournament in order to win the legendary Beyblade championship and can upgrade their Beyblader as well as the Beyblade itself as they earn Bey Points and experience along the way.
Players start by pulling the ripcord and attempting to control the top by making it spin into the massive battle bowl. By changing direction and invoking a special attack from the Bit Beast they can try to beat their opposition with the skills they have acquired. There are three different ways to defeat an opponent: knocking them out of the stadium, beating them into submission so they are no longer able to continue, or playing a game of cat and mouse with them until they can no longer spin, thus ending the match. Beyblade also gives you two complete ways to play the game where you can either enter a tournament or take part in a free battle.
