Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Retro Games Gadgets

The current Kamen Rider in Japan is called Ex-Aid and he’s a doctor who transforms into video game characters and fights in game worlds, like platformers, RPGs, fighting games (all they do is fight in these programmes anyway).
He’s also assisted by a cute nurse/game character called Poppy PiPoPaPo who jumps in and out of the TV screen in the hospital staff lounge – think she’s added for all the dads who have to watch this programme with their kids – she’s certainly my favourite character in the show!

There are always 2 or 3 Kamen Rider movies released each year too, the first one featured Dr Pac-Man, and the latest has Xevious as one of the bad guys.

To tie-in with these Bandai have released “Adventure Gadgets” (“アドベンチャーガシャット”) – which are what the characters use in the programme to turn into the Kamen Rider game characters – featuring Pac-Man, Xevious and FamiSta Baseball.

They’re available from Amazon Japan if anyone wants to check them out.
I’m very tempted to get the Pac-Man one…
