Madoka Magica Girls Turned Into Literal Chess Pieces

posted on by Egan Loo
In this game, Madoka is King while Kyubey is just a Pawn; April release planned

The character goods maker Takara Tomy A.R.T.S will release Puella Magi Madoka Magica Chess Pieces in April. As the start of a new line of character goods from Takara Tomy A.R.T.S, this release will combine the magical girls of the Madoka Magica anime with the venerable game of chess. According to the first promotional image, the characters have the following ranks:

Madoka: King
Homura: Queen
Mami: Knight
Sayaka: Bishop
Kyōko: Rook
Kyubey: Pawn

The 18 different chess pieces will sell for 300 yen (about US$4) each. There will be at least two variants: a "realistic" version in the standard black-and-white color scheme of chess, and a rare version in full color.

Takara Tomy A.R.T.S will also release super-deformed Kill Me Baby (Baby, Please Kill Me!) Little Mascot figures in April, Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Sound Eggs trinkets that play audio in April, SR Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai figures in the spring, and the Nintendo Mechanical Kit Collection (with vehicles from Starfox 64 3D and Steel Diver) in May.
