Sakar has announced that the first SubSurf wheeled goods based on “Subway Surfers,” the endless runner mobile game that crossed three billion downloads last summer, will roll into stores nationwide this month.
"Sakar’s breadth of experience in delivering fun and on-trend consumer products, combined with their exceptional ability to mirror the SubSurf lifestyle, makes them a perfect partner," says Naz Amarchi-Cuevas, chief commercial officer, SYBO Games. "Subway Surfers fans have eagerly awaited wheeled-products to help catapult their in-game experience to the real world. We are looking forward to its retail debut just in time for the holidays.”
The assortment of skateboards, hoverboards and 2-wheeled scooters embrace the SubSurf brand’s youth culture, skate and music influence. Each wheeled item comes with an exclusive code (for both iOS and Android) that unlocks unique assets, offering consumers a new way to interact with the game. Additionally, a helmet and protective gear complete the line.
