If Square Enix Designed Batgirl

Batgirl gets the Play Arts Kai treatment.


Final Fantasy publisher Square Enix has announced the next addition to its Play Arts Kai figure line. This time, the company has provided a new take on iconic DC Comics character Batgirl, based on her appearance from the "A Matter of Family" expansion pack for Batman: Arkham Knight.

As outlined by ToyArk (via Game Informer), the Batgirl figure stands 10" tall and comes with a hard plastic cape. Also included are interchangeable hands (closed fist and fingers extended), as well as a batarang and grapple gun.

This design is not as out-there as some of Square Enix's other Play Arts Kai figures, like Tetsuya Nomura's wild spin on Batman. It arrives for sale in August in Japan, priced at ¥12,800 (about $117).

The Matter of Family expansion for Arkham Knight was released in July 2015. For the first time in the history of the Arkham series, it allowed you to play as Batgirl. The expansion is set prior to the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and sees Batgirl teaming up with Robin to rescue Batgirl's father, Commissioner Gordon, who has been kidnapped by Joker.

This is just the latest third-party character that Square Enix has created a figure for. You can check out some of the others through the links below.
