Oh – and did we mention the Marvel Tsum Tsums believe they’re the real Marvel Heroes?
“We could not be more thrilled with the success of the Marvel Tsum Tsum game in Japan,” says Marvel VP of International Development, CB Cebulski. “The launch of the Marvel Tsum Tsum limited series is a testament to our close working relationship with Disney Japan and the strength of the Marvel brand across Asia.”
“Thanks to all the fans, Marvel Tsum Tsum has been the #1 downloaded free game in Japan for nearly two months,” says Marvel Games Creative Director, Bill Rosemann. “We’re happy to bring that excitement to the limited series along with a set of variant covers based on the unique art style of the game!”
Since its debut in 2013, Disney Tsum Tsum has quickly become one of the most successful plush lines in Disney Store history, prompting category expansion into softlines, accessories, home décor and more. Featuring classic and new Disney, Marvel and now Star Wars characters, Disney Tsum Tsum’s whimsical design reinterprets everyone’s favorite characters with a unique Japanese aesthetic.
