It’s the 25th anniversary of everyone’s favorite pink puffball, Kirby, and while Nintendo clearly has plans for the pink little superstar with a number of forthcoming games for the 3DS (and, hopefully, something else for the Switch as well), the company is making waves by teaming up with Yummy Mart for a new line of…Kirby lingerie?
Yep, the store is now offering a number of items that will allow people to show their more intimate love of Kirby, be it with a sleeping set with a bra and boxer shorts, a clear pink carrying case to put everything in, or even Kirby panties featuring the adorable puffball’s face on the backside, or tomato-laden undies with a red and green color.
The items are set to go up in pre-release later this week in Tokyo’s Harajuku, but they’re expected to be available through Yummy Mart’s store as well. Prices seem to be pretty reasonable at this point (around 1,600 to 4,980 yen or so), but they’re likely to go quick, especially to die-hard fans that can’t help but wonder, “Hey, how would I look with an adorable Kirby sleeping mask?” (Well, your eyes would probably be weird, but other than that, yep, you’d be a Kirby fan.)
You can check out the gallery of Kirby-related undie items and more here. Along with sleeping sets and the carrying case, other items include what appears to be some weird puffy shirt that you can wear over the majority of your body. We’re not sure who’d be comfortable wearing something like this, but, hey, if you ever wanted a Halloween costume that makes you seem like a Kirby person, that’s probably it. Combine it with the Kirby backpack and the sleeping mask, and you’d probably even be confused for him at some homes.
You can find the official Yummy Mart page here. The items aren’t on sale yet, but they are listed so you can get a better look at them, along with the attached gallery. If you’re a Kirby fan, you may want to set aside some cash now.
As for the new Kirby games, we’ll get more information on their releases in the months ahead.
