Final Production Run of the Smart-Toy “DOMINATOR” this Spring
Last Order Opportunity Coming Soon
Cerevo Inc., an Internet connected consumer electronics manufacturer based in Tokyo, Japan, announces that the final production run of its smart toy DOMINATOR and all the related accessories will happen in Spring 2019. DOMINATOR availability and sales at the Cerevo Official Store will also end when the final production run stock sells out.
DOMINATOR was created under the supervision of Production I.G director Naoyoshi Shiotani and Nitroplus designer Makoto Ishiwata. DOMINATOR features characteristics identical to the devices seen in PSYCHO-PASS such as automatic transformation, voiceover and sound effects, authentic LED lighting, touch sensor activation, Crime Coefficient analysis and more. DOMINATOR can also be connected to the Official Companion App to enable connected features.
DOMINATOR was released for sale in February 2016 and has been purchased all over the world including Japan, US, Europe and Asia, proving popular with many fans of the hit anime PSYCHO-PASS.
Cerevo made the decision to end production of DOMINATOR due to the difficulty in purchasing new parts necessary for the manufacturing of DOMINATOR. In addition, production of related products and accessories will also be terminated. Products to be discontinued are the following –
Products subject to discontinuation*1
- DOMINATOR SPECIAL EDITION
- DOMINATOR Protector Case
- DOMINATOR Display Stand
