Sony Creative Products Inc. revealed the Uchi Tama!? project, which anthropomorphizes the franchise's characters, in 2017.

In commemoration of the franchise's 30th anniversary in 2013, Sony Creative Products released several forms of media, including a novel, a real experience game, a picture book reissue, and stage play adaptation.
