Smartphone cases are huge business in Japan. Anyone who’s been to Japan will be hard pressed to find a phone, naked in its owner’s hand. Something else that’s huge business in Japan is the blue haired vocaloid, Hatsune Miku, so it just made sense to combine the two and release some funky smartphone cases.
Good Smile Racing from the world of Super GT joined forces with Phocase, a phone accessory maker, to create cases with the team mascot, Racing Miku. The cases are for the iPhone 4 and 5 and will feature a newly launched version of Racing Miku for 2013 while the other artwork features Miku with a design based on the Sepang International Circuit. Android users needn’t feel left out with the news that an Android version with the Good Smile Racing logo on it will also be released.
The case for Android devices can be picked up from the Phocase online store for ¥3,500 while the iPhone case can be picked up from the Good Smile online shop and Nico Douga web store Nico Nico Chokuhan for ¥2,980. These are limited with the Racing Miku case available until December 31st while the Sepang case will sell until August 17th.
