WizKids' parent company National Entertainment Collectibles Association Inc. (NECA) signed an agreement with Sanrio to produce a line of Hello Kitty goods, including having the iconic character in WizKids' HeroClix miniatures game. The game already includes comic book heroes like Spider-Man and Batman, as well as other franchises such as HALO and The Lord of the Rings. In the game, figures are put on a grid map and fight one another in turn-based combat and deal "damage" measured on a dial ("clicks").
NECA announced the agreement at the New York Toy Fair this week, but the miniatures' appearance are still under wraps. The company will also release home good items, action figures, statues, and calendars.
The famous cat is getting her own graphic novels by Viz Media this fall, got a clothing line from Forever 21, and was also featured in a number of franchise cross-overs like Street Fighter, Vocaloids, the rock band KISS, The Ring film, One Piece, and Evangelion over the last year.
