You probably are already aware but I deliberately waited to report on this later as the news about this kept trickling out and i wanted the full story before discussing it.
It was announced officially that Nitro+ Blasters is branching out from the Japanese arcades and hitting the Sony PlayStation 3 and Playstation 4. But that’s not the exciting part.

Hi all. Once again I let thing slip by (so busy with work) and it’s been nearly a month since the last update, but things have been a little slow in terms of Nico news.
Firstly, here is a sneaky cam of the Super Sonico English Dub Premiere At Anime Matsuri 2015. Honnestly, it’s cringe worthy, the dubs just don’t suit. I’m a big fan of dubs if it they’re done well and suits the story / setting etc. But this is just a big fat NO!
A new Super Sonico Cheese oppai mouse pad is on it’s way. Basic specifications are stated this mouse pad to be 48.5cm in height, and maximum width 35.5cm with a total weight of 1600g. Using a lycra fabric with an aqueous ink jet print, Pre orders are accepted from the April 17, 2015 (Friday) – April 27, 2015 (Monday) and will set you back 22,000 Yen.
If you own Dead Or Alive 5 on PC, be sure to check out Super Sonico – Honoka (DL in comments) found on the DOA sub-reddit page. Fingers crossed that they’ll model and release something very similar like this as an official DLC pack for DOA on console. 😉 Follow the link to find the download link and a mini how to install the mod.
Youtube video highlight time. AgentShawnee has an awesome video where she talks all things about Sonico including how much she loves her, and does an awesome unboxing and review of the Baking Time ver prize figure by FuRyu.
It has been less than 6 months since the original ver figure was released. But X-Plus Toys are hot to release an alternate version of their Gigantic Series Super Sonico non scale soft Vinyl figure. It’s expected release date is the 30th June 2015 with be priced around 15,000 Yen.
You’ll notice besides the obvious color differences that instead of holding a burrito, Sonico-chan is holding a soft-serve ice cream cone. Her mouth pose and eyes are slightly different. Both are awesome in their own rights.
So far the only place to put in a pre-order for this figure is the X-Plus Toys Online Web Store HERE. But get in quick, pre-orders close on the 30th August 2015. I can’t confirm if this is going to be the only place to obtain a pre-order. But i’ll keep things updated if I find any other sources that’ll be selling the figure.
News just in (thanks to Neko Magic). Play-Asia.com is currently holding their annual stock clearance sale. And included in this sale is bunch of Super Sonico figures. Here they are listed to their direct product page for your convenience.
I’d recommend to jump on these deals ASAP people. Some big savings to be made here for some super awesome figures. Great deals for people in the USA. however for me the USD to AUD currency exchange is really bad right now so it’s not all too enticing for me personally. That, and i’m currently paying off for a 1/2 scale Super Sonico bikini ver origninal figure. And I just purchased a new bed. And paying off my new 70′ OLED TV, and a new sterio….
If I could i’d get the Sweets and Bikini Ver and the Tiger hoodie ver figure. Hint hint -_^

Nekomagic has a newish post update containing some photos of the new Super Sonico Mermaid prize figure from the The 39th Prize Fair 2015 Part 3: FuRyu I Looks like there will be some alternative color versions of the cup noodle holder figure too. Awesome!
Like tradition, Orchidseed are releasing an alternate version of their latest Super Sonico figure. I’m referring to their 2014 Super Sonico Cheer Girl Ver figure. This one is called the Sunkissed Cheer Girl Ver. If you missed out on getting the original I highly recommend to jump on this one as it looks amazeballs! (Since when hasn’t an Orchidseed Sonico figure has not???)
