Gilgamesh Kinged For New "Fate/zero" Chess Set

King of Heroes takes spot ahead of King of Conquerors and King of Knights in trading figure set

Back in June, Bandai Premium revealed an unplayable decorative chess set, reproducing the one seen in Fate/zero. Now, those looking to play the game of kings with the series' Servants will be able to, if they're willing to do a bit of collecting. But who gets to be the king in a series featuring the King of Heroes, King of Conquerors and King of Knights?

 

The six, 9cm pieces are being released in March as part of MegaHouse's Chess Collection R series. That means that'll be trading figures, sold in blind boxes with white and black base variants.

 

The assortment includes

-Saber - queen 
-Irisviel -bishop
-Rider - rook
-Archer - king
-Lancer - knight
-Berserker - pawn


The earlier decorative set (preorder opened in June ahead of a release next month) has pieces between 40 and 110mm tall, with the board measuring 400mm x 400mm.
