This isn’t the first time that game-related merchandise has been officially imported to India. Game4u, an erstwhile Games The Shop competitor, did it in 2009 (disclosure: this author was at Game4u at that time). They also had a variety of licensed figures.
This is still a positive development. This is especially true because the prices of what’s available are relatively low compared to what you would pay if you bought them on the grey market or via a parallel import.
Games The Shop is a Mumbai-based retailer, unbeknownst to many. Think of it as India’s answer to GameStop, minus the stock market memes. Express is the parent company of this privately-held company. Express is India’s largest game distributor. Express, outside of Sony’s original-party PlayStation games and Microsoft’s first-party Xbox gaming consoles, is likely to bring any video games into India.
