Geralt Is The Next Nendoroid To Steal Our Hearts

The Good Smile Company keeps putting out the cutest versions of video game icons from Overwatch to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and its next adorable conversion comes with The Witcher's Geralt, who can't seem to get out of the spotlight as of late.

The figure comes with both of Geralt's swords, which he can sheath if you'd rather pose him casting a spell with a small fire display. There are two head variants as well with one having a neutral expression and the other wearing a grimace with veins spread across the face. The set even comes with incredibly tiny Gwent cards and a separate display where you can attach either of Geralt's heads to his famous pose in a tub of water.

The figure will sell for ¥4,815 (roughly $45 excluding tax) and is available for preorder now until May 31. Shipping will commence sometime this September.

Sega Releases Live-Action Yakuza Shorts That Recall Kiryu's Legacy

Just a few days ahead of Yakuza 6: Song of Life's release, Sega has released some video shorts of side characters from the Yakuza series recalling the effect Kiryu has had on their lives through the game's substories.

The three chapter videos cover the Prodigal Son story from Yakuza 0, where a homeless man believes Kiryu to be his long-lost son; the Bouncer from Yakuza Kiwami, where Kiryu rescues a cabaret owner from the middle of a turf war; and Another Haruka from Yakuza 5, when Kiryu rescues a young girl and a stray dog with the help of her step-father.

You can find the three videos below, which are surprisingly well done for little commercials for Yakuza 6.
