"Riku, the keyblade wielder and childhood friend of Sora and Kairi from the KINGDOM HEARTS series, makes his appearance in the PLAY ARTS KAI line based on his design from KINGDOM HEARTS III! The texture of his hair, the shading of his skin, the gold buttons, the wrinkles in the clothes, and other details have been carefully considered. A fanatstic representation of Riku, who has become more dependable and gentle through the adventures of the series, the figure is a sight to behold."

"Includes additional hand parts and Riku's iconic Keyblade, "Braveheart," making it possible to replicate iconic poses. Additionally, the Deluxe version comes with two face options, including a smiling face and a battle face, the Keyblade "Way to the Dawn," and the broken "Way to the Dawn" that was so memorably depicted in the story, making this a luxurious set.
