Smile Fest 2022 is currently taking place in Tokyo, and it’s brought along some major news about future figures – including a couple for Xenoblade Chronicles 3’s Mio.

The event has provided arguably the most amount of reveals and updates we’ve seen at one of these expos. In the case of Mio, she’s getting not one, but two different figures. Other announcements include a King Dedede Nendoroid, our first look at the upcoming Metroid Dread figure for Samus, and more.

Shovel Knight Nendoroid pre-order

The previously-announced Shovel Knight Nendoroid now has a release window plus new photos, and pre-orders have opened.

The figure comes complete with a selection of optional parts including his well-known shovel, a powerful attack effect for combat scenes, and a treasure chest that can be opened and closed. Its height is roughly 100mm and POLY-TOYS is handling the sculpting. Since the figure doesn’t balance on its own, you’re advised to use the included stand.

Thanatos Nendoroid Hades

Earlier this year, it was announced that a new Nendoroid was in production based on Thanatos from Hades. Good Smile has now followed up with additional information, including a release date.

Thanatos comes with two face plates. Along with a standard face, a smiling face is included as well. Buyers will also receive optional parts, including a scythe, the Pierced Butterfly keepsake, and Mort. It measures roughly 100mm in height and is sculpted by POLY-TOYS.

Klonoa Nendoroid

A new Nendoroid figure has been revealed, with the latest design featuring Klonoa. Currently we have a look at it in prototype form – check it out above. Max Factory shared the news on social media.

As fans will notice, Klonoa isn’t alone. It looks like he’ll be accompanied by Huepow, Klonoa’s best friend and the Prince of Cress.

Kirby Nendoroid - Kirby: 30th Anniversary Edition

The Kirby Nendoroid – Kirby: 30th Anniversary Edition was just shown off at WonHobby Gallery 2022 Spring over the weekend, and Good Smile has already followed up with a release date. The figure is currently planned for January 31, 2023.

As the name of the Nendoroid implies, the figure is intended to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Kirby. The included magnets make it easy to pose.

The WonHobby Gallery 2022 Spring event is happening today, which means we have a new batch of news about future figures. Some have been revealed for the first type while others have received their first prototypes.

One of the new reveals is a special 30th anniversary Nendoroid for Kirby. We also now know that Megaera is getting her own figure. Finally, we have a first look at the Shovel Knight Nendoroid.

Undertale Sans and Papyrus Nendoroids

Good Smile has followed up with more information about its Undertale Sans and Papyrus Nendoroids with a release date, photos, and pre-orders.

Both figures are currently planned to ship in November 2022. These figures were first made known last September,  and we then got a first look last month.

Doki Doki Literature Club Monika Nendoroid pre-order

Following the initial reveal of the Doki Doki Literature Club Monika Nendoroid last July, Good Smile is gearing up for the final stages of production, providing fans with a release date and the start of pre-orders.

Monika comes with three face plates as well as a desk and chair as optional parts, which can be used to recreate her iconic scene plus. A cut-out sheet with dialogue boxes from the game are also available.

Hades Zagreus Nendoroid pre-orders

We’ve got news about the upcoming Nendoroid for Zagreus, which was originally announced last September – including news about pre-orders. The Hades figure was initially shown with a simple piece of concept art, but the final design has now been finalized.

Below is the official product description:

Ghosts 'n Goblins Arthur Nendoroid

Good Smile has provided an update on the upcoming Arthur Nendoroid based on the character’s appearance in Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection – and it’ll include extras thanks to optional weapon parts and a treasure chest.

First up, we now have a final look at the design. You may recall that we only saw it in prototype form a few months ago. It also now looks like Athur will be released in October 2022.
