It’s been ages since official Yu-Gi-Oh! plushies have been seen outside Japan and Asia, but that will change early next year thanks to a new deal between 4K Media (Konami) and Sakami Merchandise. 4K Media announced today that it has tapped the Germany-based video game and comic goods specialist to produce plush toys of Yami Yugi and Yuya Sakaki, concept art of which is shown above. The plushies will be available in the first quarter of 2017 in various European countries.
“Sakami Merchandise is a new company specializing in the manufacturing of plush toys based on popular Japanese anime and manga, so of course Yu-Gi-Oh! was at the top of our must-have list,” said Sakami representative Ronny Wolf in a release.
Sakami Merchandise’s other products currently include plushies of L and Ryuk from Death Note and Conan Edogawa from Case Closed. The company also has plushies of Saitama from One-Punch Man and Teepo from Tales of Xillia lined up for sale later this year.
