The girls got a new video game, Starlink Battle for Atlas. This game is an open-world space saga that features modular toy technology. It allows players to assemble and customize real-world physical starships, link the starships to their game controller, and launch into an epic adventure across the Atlas star system.
Starlink Battle for Atlas
It can be played either as a single player or with a friend in two-player, split-screen, local co-op.
Players can mix and match pilots, hulls, wings, and weapons to build the any starship that you can imagine. Modifications to each your physical starship, using the modular components and pilots, are instantly reflected in your gameplay experience. This allows you to immediately jump into the battle and directly affect the course of play in a uniquely personal way.
It is possible to build your own playstyle to overcome deadly challenges. Once you have chosen your pilot you can master his or her unique skills to gain an advantage. The girls are partial to the female pilots, naturally. This is girl power at its best. You can also experiment with different weapon combinations to inflict even more damage.
With Starlink Battle for Atlas it is possible to travel seamlessly through the seven exotic alien worlds of the Atlas star system. This galaxy is full of interesting and unique challenges that the kids can encounter and battle to overcome. They can fly directly from the planet into space for more battles, then head back to another world when ready.
Starlink Battle for Atlas is available on Nintendo Switch, the PlayStation®4, and XBOX ONE. You can head to the Best Buy website to choose a starter pack. Then, shop for starship packs (toys), pilot packs, and weapons packs. Right now you can purchase one Starlink toy and save 50% on a 2nd one.
