Possibly following up on the Skyward Sword metal keychain set released in 2012, news of a similar set of merchandise for A Link Between Worlds has surfaced, albeit with very little information accompanying it. Much like when the Skyward Sword set was announced, we do not yet have actual pictures of the keychains themselves, but instead rather sketchy representations of the designs the keychains will eventually be made in. Hit the jump to find out more.
As you can see above, the set will include five different designs, with Link and Zelda appearing to take on an interesting chibi design, quite apart from anything we have seen in Zelda merchandise before. As previously mentioned we have very little information to go on at the moment, just that these will be manufactured by Bandai and have a current tentative release date of May. No doubt we will get more info on this, including pictures of the actual finished product and word of a possible western release (unlikely, but one can always hope) closer to the time specified. In the meantime, stay tuned to Zelda Dungeon for future updates.
But what do you think? Do you approve of the initial design ideas? Does this type of merchandise appeal to you as a gamer, at all? Tell us in the comments below.
