Figure and model company Union Creative will be releasing an action figure of main character Sir Arthur from classic platforming video game Ghosts ‘n Goblins.

 

Originally released to arcades in 1985, Capcom’s Ghosts ‘n Goblins is best known for its NES port. The game is famous for its brutal difficulty, a reputation which holds true even today. It has seen a new surge of interest due to its selection as one of the 30 games included with the recent NES Classic Edition standalone console.

The figure from Union Creative depicts the game’s protagonist, Sir Arthur. The company has not yet released information about the figure’s size or other details, but preview pictures show that the poseable action figure features removable armor.

The figure’s release date and preorder deadline will be announced shortly. Preorders will be available through Union Creative’s online store, as well as hobby shops across Japan.
