Premium Bandai announced an updated rerelease of the Complete Selection Modification Kamen Rider W Driver 1.5, the Fuuto PI edition, to coincide with the Fuuto PI anime.
To coincide with the release of the anime, Fuuto PI, the Complete Selection Modification W Driver 1.5 sees an updated rerelease with new features exclusive to this release. The Fuuto PI edition uses the CSM W Driver 1.5 from 2019 as a base and remains largely unchanged. The new features are within the Gaia Memories.
Across the six Gaia memories, a total of 60 unique lines have been recorded. These have been recorded by Yoshimasa Hosoya (Shotaro Hidari) and Koki Uchiyama (Phillip). Dialogue mode can be accessed by holding the main button. These recordings are specifically from the Fuuto PI anime, not the Kamen Rider W TV series.
While in dialogue mode, voice lines can be activated through play, such as during transformation or during a Memory Break attack.
For those who already have the CSM W Driver 1.5 and wish to only purchase the newly updated Gaia Memories, a set containing that will be available. It will retail for 9,900 yen (tax included) and will release at the same time as the main release.
A demonstration of the item was uploaded to Bandai’s Youtube channel:
The CSM W Driver from Kamen Rider W will go for 19,800 yen (tax included). Preorders are open from August 8th, 2022 to October 31st, 2022 and is scheduled for shipment in January 2023.
