Recently, Supercell, a globally famous game giant, and POP MART, a representative of designer toys, have carried out large-scale offline activities in the United States, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan under the theme of “Clash of Clans and Clash Royale.” The global cross-border collaboration was so popular that not only the players actively participated, but also many passersby were attracted to take part in the craze.
Blind box figures were released globally, and the fine workmanship was highly praised
In September, Supercell and POP MART jointly launched the first set of “Clash of Clans and Clash Royale” blind box figures in the world. 14 figures were launched, including 12 regular character figures such as Mega Knight, Princess, and Hog Rider, as well as two uncommon character figures, the “Barbarian King” and the “King,” that can only be obtained with a certain possibility. The cute shape of the figures and their heroic image formed a huge contrast, bringing a refreshing visual experience for customers. Because of the fine workmanship and lovely shape, this set of blind box figures achieved outstanding sales performance and garnered a large number of praises from the figure fans and game players at the same time.

Based on this, Supercell joined hands with POP MART stores in South Korea, Singapore, the United States, Taiwan, and other places to create a new designer toy store with the theme of “Clash of Clans.” The classic characters such as the Barbarian King and Princess can be seen everywhere, from the cardboard cutouts at the entrance of the store to the wallpaper in the windows. The classic characters of “Clash of Clans and Clash Royale” broke the boundaries of online gaming and offline activity and partied with the Clash players who came by appointment. The stores gradually became trendy places, and the lively scene added a wonderful touch to the Clash games.

Offline activities were popular, and cross-border collaboration attracted tons of fans
It is worth mentioning that Supercell also held offline activities at the POP MART stores in Singapore and South Korea to cheer for the “Clash of Clans and Clash Royale” 2022 Global Finals. During the finals, Supercell not only contracted the big screen in Singapore’s Funan Mall to broadcast live for the players present, but also invited professional commentators to explain the game to the audience in the South Korean store. A 5V5 friendship challenge was also conducted along with the live broadcast. Many non-players were attracted by the lively atmosphere, and some passers-by even downloaded the game on site and played the game over broadcast live viewing.

This cross-border cooperation brings an online and offline immersive experience for Clash of Clans players and also makes an attempt of new brand cross-border cooperation, breaks the circle barrier between games and designer toys, and helps to realize communication between designer toy players and game players. Feeling the enthusiasm of players, Supercell also said that it would carry out more diversified offline collaborative activities in more areas. The theme store jointly built with POP MART in Hong Kong will be launched in the near future, and it is expected that players can feel the charm of the Clash of Clans game here.
