The original Beyblade series led Nelvana to many awards and won the toy of the year award in 2002 and 2003. Since that time many toys and series had been produced in the North America and Asia, but many of them had not prospered. As a result Nelvana entered into talks with TV Tokyo to revise the series. TV Tokyo agreed if Nelvana would be co-producer for the series and if TV Tokyo could air the episodes first. With this plan agreed upon, Nelvana announced 51 episodes of Metal Fight Beyblade with the English name Beyblade: Metal Fusion. It premiered in Japan in 2009 and in North America June 26, 2010. As co-producers of the series Nelvana was able to create the rights for other companies. Toys were given to Tomy Company and Hasbro, and TV rights would be distributed by Nelvana. In 2010 Nelvana announced they were looking at parties interested in the fifth season of Beyblade and the second season of the Metal saga to go under the name Beyblade: Metal Masters.

The chapters of the Metal Fight Beyblade manga are written and illustrated by Takafumi Adachi. In Japan, they have been published in Shogakukan's Monthly CoroCoro comics since September 2008.
The anime version of Metal Fight Beyblade's plot is written differently than in the manga. One notable difference is that in the manga, the characters Beys transform for its upgrade, while in the anime, they just switch parts or get an entirely new Bey. Another notable difference is that in the manga, the characters started off with the Metal System,(4-piece top) while in the anime they started with the Hybrid Wheel System (5-piece top). Some parts of the story are different in the anime version than in the manga, but overall the plot is the same.
