Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America Launches Vital Hero

Bandai Vital Hero
Launching this summer, Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America introduces Vital Hero, a brand-new gamified wearable band that evolves how kids play, stay active, battle, and compete with friends. This first wave of Vital Hero bands features one unique Digital Monster per band, and an extensive roster of Digital Monsters kids can collect to extend their play.

Featuring a full-color LED display screen and built-in vital activity monitor, the Vital Hero band prompts daily activities with a range of missions to complete such as, shadow boxing, squatting, sprint challenges, walking a certain amount of steps, and many more. Each mission and daily activity evolves your Digital Monster, makes them stronger, prompts you into battles, and provides endless fun in solo play or with friends.

“The Vital Hero band combines gaming and staying active in a fun, new, and engaging way for kids of all ages,” says Selah Estrada, Senior Brand Strategy Marketing Manager at Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America. “We’re living in times where kids are more tech-savvy than ever and gamification is the new way to play.”

Wearing the Vital Hero band, players can have their leveled up Digital Monster battle in device or on their friends device using a VS memory chip for transferring your character to their screen for an epic showdown. The Vital Hero can also be activated at NFC (Near Field Connection) touch points such as, tap to pay stations, ID card readers, and more. In the future, there will be two apps available where kids can battle in online PVP championships and store their collection of Digital Monsters.

Pre-sales for the Vital Hero begin today on Amazon.com, available in black and blue versions. Priced at $64.99 (MSRP), each band offers a full ecosystem of play for continued use and fun.
