Collaboration features edible and collectible creations.
The NEW GAME!! team is teaming up with Takumen.com to bring you a collaboration uniting two cornerstones of geekdom: gaming and ramen. The ramen chain is offering specialty ramen to walk-in customers, as well as some cute bowls to buy and take home... or to display, should you happen to pick up one of their autographed versions.
The campaign's big-ticket item is a full-color ramen bowl, featuring adorable chibi art of the NEW GAME!! cast ready for ramen. Preorders are open until August 27, with the bows costing 6,980 yen each. The smaller bowls will be sold as part of a set in various Takumen locations when customers order one of their special menu items.
For 4,980 yen, you can get the Aoba and Hifumi mini-bowls to take home, as well as a special hamburger and tomato ramen served with cheese.
Also running 4,980 yen is the Yun and Hajime mini-bowl set, which comes with a prawn curry ramen served with pork belly.
The collaboration site is also featuring a Twitter campaign, giving away several autographed bowls and limited-edition postcards. Follow @taku_men, tweet photos and reviews of your visit with the hashtag supplied on the site, and you're automatically entered. The Twitter campaign ends September 10.
In addition, several ramen shops around Japan such as Yume wo Katare and Junk Story will be offering NEW GAME!! themed menu items along with a limited-edition postcard.
