Last November, Good Smile Company had an upcoming Dead or Alive Kasumi Figma on display at the Max Factory 30th Anniversary Omedeto Max Exhibition. Over at the Figma Blog, they have shared new photos of the figure, as well as some details. Kasumi is one of the main characters from the Dead or Alive video game franchise, which started in the arcades in the 1990’s, and has had new iterations during every video game generation since. Known for its over the top “sexy” costumes and gravity defying physics, the Dead or Alive series was a surprisingly deep but easy to pick up 3D fighting game franchise. Though the core game mechanics are still quite well done, these days the newest game in the series has become known for its countless microtransactions for new costume packs.
The new Kasumi figure is no different. The fully articulated 6″ scale figure is shown in one of her classic outfits in red and white. Her more iconic blue outfit could easily make an appearance at some point as a variant or exclusive. The figure includes two interchangeable portraits, interchangeable hands, a sword, and a sheath. Pre-orders go live on Thursday, January 25th on the Good Smile Shop in Japan.
You can see the new photos after the jump.
