Game developers usually sell virtual goods from character skins to costumes to weapons to make money. Tencent Holdings, which runs the world's biggest video games business, is taking it one step further by selling real products.

Tencent’s blockbuster mobile title, Honour of Kings, is now offering its own gold and silver accessories in partnership with Hong Kong jewellery retailer Chow Sang Sang, the Hong Kong-listed internet giant announced on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo on Sunday.

Inspired by five heroes in the game, the Honour of Kings-themed jewellery products are now available via Chow Sang Sang’s online stores as part of a Valentine’s Day marketing campaign. The most expensive item is a 1,980 yuan ((US$292) bracelet with a gold pendant of Daji, a Chinese concubine-turned-magician character with destructive powers in Honour of Kings.

The video game tie-up with the jewellery retailer comes after an earlier collaboration with Canadian cosmetics brand MAC. Last month, Honour of Kings and MAC launched five co-branded lipsticks, featuring colours on the lips of the game’s popular female characters. Some colours sold out within an hour, local media reported.

While jewellery and make-up brands have always had tie-ins with cartoon characters, such as Hello Kitty and Disney princesses, it is a relatively new trend for traditional retailers to launch products with gaming themes. In Japan, Pikachu beauty products have been made possible through partnership between local fashion brand Its'Demo and the Pokémon franchise since 2014.
