In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of Kamen Rider Fourze, Premium Bandai announced the release of the long-awaited transformation belt, the Kamen Rider Fourze Transformation Belt DX Nadeshiko Driver from Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Fourze & OOO: Movie War Mega Max.
“Space is here!!!!”
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of Kamen Rider Fourze‘s broadcast, Kamen Rider Nadeshiko’s transformation belt, which appeared in the December 2011 movie, Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider Fourze & OOO: Movie War Mega Max, now has a DX toy release. The Nadeshiko Driver, one of the transformation belts that appeared in the film, has not been previously released until the 10th anniversary this year.
The Nadeshiko Driver is Kamen Rider Nadeshiko’s transformation belt, which she created as an imitation of Gentaro’s Fourze Driver. Like the Fourze Driver, it is compatible with the Astro Switches, but can only use the Circle and Square orientated Switches. This results in her only being able to equip arm-mounted Fourze Modules.
As a living mass of SOLU, Nadeshiko can copy the appearance and functions of things and sometimes improve them. Seeing Gentaro become Fourze, Nadeshiko became Kamen Rider Nadeshiko in order to fight with him. Her Rider Kick is called the Nadeshiko Rocket Kick, which is a heel kick propelled by the Rocket Switch. Nadeshiko Misaki is portrayed by Erina Mano, who voiced dialogue for this special release.
This blue transformation belt also comes with a new Astro Switch. To transform, load the Astro Switch, a key item for transformation, into the two sockets on the front of the belt. Next, press the trans-switch on the belt to transform. The color of the main body is metallic blue, just like in the movie. In addition to the Rocket Switch and Radar Switch, the Launcher Switch (Nadeshiko Switch color ver.), which can be loaded into the Fourze Driver, is also included, as well as the Gate Switch and SOLU Switch, which are being released for the first time.

- DX Nadeshiko Driver
