WizKids is Bringing Japanese Horror Game ‘Hako Onna’ to America

This past weekend at the prestigious Toy Fair New York, I had the opportunity to sit down with Jessa Morgen of WizKids for an exclusive discussion about their upcoming American release of Hako Onna – a Japanese horror game that is currently in it’s fourth edition in Japan. Check out the video to learn all about this horrifying game and then visit the WizKids link below the video for more info.

As you heard, WizKids is shooting for a Q3 release of Hako Onna which will put them in line to get this game in our hands hopefully before Halloween of this year. I definitely dropped several references to Horror News Network wanting a copy to review so we will keep you posted if that happens! In the meantime, head over to the WizKids website (click here) for more info on Hako Onna and all other games they currently have in production and don’t forget to check out the rest of our coverage from Toy Fair New York 2019 by clicking here! read more

HNN’s Coverage of The 2019 New York Toy Fair

HNN’s Larry Dwyer and Sean McLaughlin once again invaded the Jacob Javitz Center in Manhattan for Toy Fair New York, the annual international convention of toy manufacturers, distributors and retailers.  And once again, all horror fans have a LOT to look forward to in 2019 and beyond.

The usual suspects of horror industry heavyweights such as NECA, Mezco and McFarlane Toys (among many others) did not disappoint with their impressive displays and product announcements, which are covered in the event pictures posted here.  While the genre standards like Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees and Chucky were of course well-represented, several new exciting licenses were unveiled as well.  Our favorites are They Live, which saw multiple companies announce brand-new figure lines, and the anticipated upcoming film The Curse of La Llorona.  Mezco appears to be knocking it out of the park in respect to the latter. read more
