Square Enix Gives DC Comics Heroes a PLAY ARTS Kai Makeover

When they’re not making RPGs with gravity defying hair or giving Eidos a platform to push out gems like Tomb Raider, video game megalith Square Enix also puts out an impressive array of figures, statues and collectible goods through their PLAY ARTS Kai line. Joining the vaunted ranks of Cowboy Bebop‘s Vicious and Man of Steel‘s General Zod (kneel before him; sorority letter not included) is an awesome collection of classic DC Comics character variants. In a gallery posted to Facebook, Square Enix’s general manager of the PLAY ARTS Kai figure brand revealed the reimagined DC Comics character figures and some impressive artwork, which will evidently appear on the packaging. Take a gander at their take on Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern below, then start counting down the days to their projected August release date, when you can snag them for $79.99 each.

    Sorry 2x posts.
    Probably should have started with this:
    I’m a big fan of Square-Enix… And, it’s awesome to see them encouraging individual expressions of art like this. It’s amazing what people with a spark of imagination in their mind can do when given the opportunity to do so.

    I wonder. Did ‘Square’ finally heard about Kumail’s slip-ups and finally ‘actually’ decided to sponsor an episode of The Indoor Kids?

    Side note:
    Is it normal to have links in ‘comments’ that are trying to sell stuff?
    I know I occasionally rattle on in some of my posts but I’m not trying to sell something in them…
    Just giving an honest opinion, I’m not out here trying to posting stuff I’d normally see in spam e-mails.

    This just makes me want to play a DC Superhero RPG made by Square Enix with this is as the art style.
