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.

  1. Weird, the images for Yami and Yuya seem to have disappeared off their website. o_O But I am quite excited for this news, since plushies are a weak spot of mine. I’m a little disappointed they skipped over 5D’s (I’ve been wanting a Jack and Yusei plushie foreeeever), but pleasantly surprised they’re including Yuya.

  2. Yeah, it’s kind of surprising there aren’t any Yusei and Jack plushies since their chibi-fied versions already appear in the anime and can be used as a starting design. I want a manga Yuya plushie with the hooded cloak. <3
