Bakugan Dimensions was an online MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) game created by Spin Master. It allowed players to brawl in a virtual environment. To get a Bakugan, a DNA Code found on Gundalian Invaders Bakugan or Mechtanium Surge Bakugan, was needed. It was a real life simulation of Marucho's Bakugan Interspace in the Anime. To begin playing the game, you were supplied with three default Bakugan in the attribute you choose upon setting up an account and an avatar. These three Bakugan did not gain experience and levels as quickly, but could be used without making any purchases. It was shut down on June 30, 2011; this was when Mechtanium Surge was thought to have 26 episodes, therefore finishing around the same time.
Bakugan Dimensions mainly had the players stay in Bayview. A Player could travel around by clicking their mouse on their destination, or using the Arrow Keys. To Travel to a Different Area, a player would click on the map. There are five main areas:
Downtown: Downtown contained two clothing Stores, a Dojo, a portal to Neathia, a Hair Salon, the gear shop, one DNA console and one Leader Board. In the [Downtown] Plaza, every Thursday on the Avior Server, Bright Light and one Guest GM brawler would randomly pick brawlers that were in the plaza to brawl them. If you brawl and lose then you get a Special Track jacket. If you win then you get an in-game Clear Avior and the Track Jacket.
Bakugan Interspace: To get to Interspace, you clicked on the Internet Terminal at The School (next to the DNA console), and clicked: "Log in to Interspace". Interspace contained a Plaza and the Stadium. Interspace had a lot of NPCs, mainly Shun, Marucho and Lord Darkus.

Bakugan Dimensions is a free online world for PC, where people from all around the world battle, collect Bakugan and battle with other gamers. It resembles Marucho's Bakugan Interspace (Episode: Virtual Insanity), which is the setting of the new TV season for Bakugan, "Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders." New Season 3 and Season 4 Bakugan have a heat-reveal DNA Code that can be entered to upload the exact Bakugan to the game. New Battle Gear, BakuNano, Mechtogan and Mechtogan Titans also have a DNA Code to enter. Players can make their own avatar, which moves around in the online world. You need to make a username and password, and if the user is under 13, a parent needs to make an account and verify the child account. New BakuCoins, found in Season 3 packages of Bakumorph, Card Boosters and Deka Bakugan (larger sized Bakugan), also have a code to enter online to redeem for online BakuCoin value. Sometimes when you play it takes a long time to load.
Entering DNA Codes
You can enter a DNA Code found on any Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders or Bakugan: Mechtanium Surge Bakugan to reveal a monstrous creature. You can enter the 10-digit DNA Code into any designated DNA Console. There is also a special 3-digit code, that you can find on BakuMeters that gives your avatar a BakuMeter and some Clear Bakugan. All Bakugan entered start out at 400 Gs, and Colossus Bakugan start out at 650 Gs. At the beginning of the game, you get three Bakugan from the Attribute of your choice. These have 300 Gs. For each DNA Code entered for a Bakugan already owned in the game, it will gain 25 Gs. Some Mechtanium Surge wave 2 Bakugan did not have codes though. However, DNA Codes can only be used once. If you enter a pre-released Bakugan, you will receive BakuCoins unless SpinMaster entered the code into the system.
- Helix Dragonoid
- Dimensions was able to show the Bakugan form of any Bakugan not seen in the anime.
- Dimensions has expanded exactly like Interspace, therefore making it a real-world version of Interspace.
- Despite what attribute you choose for your first Bakugan, you can mix and match your team to your liking (i.e Aquos Hawktor, Subterra Glotronoid, Haos Rubanoid).
- Bakugan Dimensions was only in a Beta version while it was up so it is unknown when a full version would have been released if it had continued.
