Limited Edition Puella Magi Madoka Magica Walkman from Sony
posted on by Bamboo Dong
Sony Japan is releasing a limited edition Puella Magi Madoka Magica-themed Walkman in collaboration with the third film, Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Rebellion, which will hit Japanese theaters on October 26.
The limited edition digital media player is part of the Sony F series, and comes in black (NW-F805/B) and white (NW-F805/W). Each features a Walkman-exclusive image of either Madoka or Homura etched onto the back cover, Madoka Magica wallpapers, and a pre-installed song from the soundtrack.
Both models retail for 19,800 yen (~ $199), and feature noise-cancelling technology, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, 16 GB of storage, and a 3.5" WVGA multi-touch LCD.
The units go on sale in late October, but interested buyers will have to act fast—last year, Sony's limited edition Hatsune Miku Walkman sold out in less than six hours. Sony hasn't revealed a specific release date and time yet for the two Madoka Magica Walkman models, but they plan on announcing purchasing and reservation details through a special e-mail list.
