Senran Kagura Niitengos part of 3DS pre-order bundle

I've never really liked figures getting bundled in with deluxe versions of games, but it looks like they're pretty much here to stay, especially in Japan. I say that because yet another game — Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crim...

Square-Enix Theatrhythm Static Arts mini adds more characters
by Natalie Kipper

We have been tracking the Final Fantasy Theatrhythm Static Arts mini series since the first figures were spotted at last year's Tokyo Game Show. At that point, the only characters to be seen were Final Fantasy VII's Cloud, Sephiroth, and Tifa. More than a few Final Fantasy fans were disappointed to not have heroes from other entries in the series represented. Well, your prayers have been answered (sort of)!

Three new characters have been revealed in a Facebook album: Final Fantasy VIII's Squall plus series mainstays, the Moogle and Chocobo. I kind of enamored with both the Moogle and Chocobo but I will admit that more protagonists would have been nice. No price nor release date has been revealed for this trio as of yet.

Hot Toys gets Revengeance with their new 1/6-scale Raiden photo
Hot Toys gets Revengeance with their new 1/6-scale Raiden
by Brian Szabelski

Hot Toys are back at it again, making yet another awesome 1/6-scale figure. This time, they've picked Raiden in his Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance form, and from the photos they've sent us, no detail has been left overlooked. Even the boss himself, Hideo Kojima, is fanboying over Hot Toys' work. I sure don't blame him.

So what does Raiden come with, besides dashing good robot looks? Well, you get his full arsenal of weaponry, including his dagger and long blade; an optional visor part; a pair of interchangeable chest armor pieces; and four different sets of hands, among other parts. There's also a special edition that'll come with a to-scale version of Raiden's Muramasa blade.

You can expect Raiden in the fourth quarter of 2014 or first quarter of 2015; a price is to be announced but I expect to see pre-orders soon.

KanColle's Kongou mixes Nendoroids and fanservice photo
KanColle's Kongou mixes Nendoroids and fanservice
by Tianxiao Ma

[Update: Added pre-order info]

If you want an up-close look at Nendoroid Kongou, head over to Kahotan's blog for a good look. Following along with the other Kantai Collection Nendoroids, Kongou is a fairly elaborate figure.

Kongou's hair, outfit, and cannons all make for a special-looking Nendoroid package. But Good Smile Company didn't stop there. You'll get battle damage pieces, effects parts for the cannons, and even parts to pose her sitting down with some tea. The battle damage body is of note; it's the only Nendoroid I know of with some side boob!

Kahotan also revealed a bonus if you pre-order from Good Smile's online shop: a special stand that has a water pattern printed on it. She'll be up for pre-order soon so keep an eye out. She's now up for pre-order for ¥4,800. Look forward to an August release!
