Banpresto is known for making all sorts of fantastic geeky goodies. Ramping up for 2018, the company has a few lottery sets in honor of Super Mario Odyssey and Kirby’s 25th anniversary that will be made available in the near future.

MARIO NUMBER ONE

With eight items to “choose” from (let’s keep in mind they’re only available through the randomized gachapon system in Japan), we’re finally getting some official “captured” merchandise from Super Mario Odyssey. Granted, if any of these pieces have stolen away your hearts and wallets, you’ll have to wait and see if they’re picked up by an import site. Maybe we’ll get lucky and Nintendo will start carrying them at Nintendo NY and on its online store.

  • Mario Hat Cushion
  • Captured Goomba Stuffed Toy
  • Warped Pipe Bag
  • Heat-sensitive Mug
  • Mini Plates
  • Pixel Mario PVC Rubber Mascot Keychains
  • Handkerchief
  • Cappy Cushion

POYO POYO

While I’m crossing my fingers and poyo poyos that this line of merchandise isn’t point at Kirby’s Sleep copy ability winning the second round vote for Kirby Battle Royale, it doesn’t mean that this series isn’t cute! Themed “Kirby Twinkle Night,” you can count Kirbys and Waddle Dees instead of sheep so you can sleep with these products.

  • Sleeping Kirby Big Plush
  • Kirby Twinkle Night Tea Pot
  • Kirby Twinkle Night Blanket
  • Kirby and Waddle Dee Small Plush
  • Metal Charm Keychains
  • Drinking Glass
  • Kirby Twinkle Night Towels
  • Sleeping Waddle Dee Big Plush

 
These items aren’t available in Japan yet and when they are, they’ll be tied to the lottery system, as mentioned above. In the meantime, keep checking your favorite online stores to see if they’ve secured any of the items. We’ll report back if we spot any of these ourselves!
