0 Responses to Figure News: Konami announces the production of a 1/8 scale Bemani Iroha PVC… maybe

    Konami did this back when they were resurrecting the PS2 releases of the IIDX games: told people “if we don’t get 10,000 preorders via Konamistyle, we aren’t releasing, PS2 IIDX is over, etc, lol@u”. The order numbers were really slow– almost deliberately so (wink wink black helicopters in the skies)– but they cleared the target, IIDX 7th came out and they’re up to 12 now. The preorder campaign was more about getting the existing fanbase scared and buying (worked like a charm) than the production being in any kind of trouble.
    Ah, I’m so bitter about Bemani games nowadays!
