Following its much-buzzed-about debut at the Toy Insider‘s Holiday of Play last month, HUGE! Play’s GameBud Talking Tom is available to preorder in North America.
Created by HUGE! Play in collaboration with Outfit7 and Epic Story Media, GameBud Talking Tom is an innovative, animatronic character that live-connects to mobile games, including Talking Tom Hero Dash and Talking Tom Gold Run.
“GameBud Talking Tom offers a next-level experience for fans, says HUGE! Play CEO Kevin Mowrer. “He’s both your gaming buddy and like a real-life streamer. Picture Talking Tom at your side as you play his games — giving hints to better your gameplay, all while joking and teasing you in the most loveable way.”
GameBud Talking Tom is powered by a software engine that delivers more than five hours of unique content across three play modes: Game-Connected (online), Free Play, and Command Mode (offline). He interacts with fans via a companion app for iOS and Android.

The first 10,000 units shipped will be a special, limited-edition collector version that includes a Hero Dash mask and a numbered certificate of authenticity.
HUGE! Play says that the first run will ship direct to consumers and should arrive before the holidays.
