People will need to spend 300 yen to get one of these keychains at random. Each character in the keychain will be made of silicone and have an approximate height of 25 mm (0.98 in). The owner will be able to attach them to various items ranging from bag zippers to drink bottles and umbrella handles.

The lineup will primarily feature The Prince as the series protagonist and his father The King of All Cosmos. It will also include three of The Prince’s cousins: Miso, Ichigo, and Beyond. Bandai chose these characters from the cousin popularity poll that Bandai Namco held following the release of We Love Katamari Reroll + Royal Reverie in June 2023. The aforementioned cousins made their way to the top three ranks in that poll.

Here are the sample images for each item in the lineup:
