Kirby’s main claim to fame is his adaptability and the many forms he takes. Be it harnessing the elements or becoming a master of a given discipline, the pink puffball has always got an answer up his nonexistent sleeve. More overlooked than all those powers may be his malleability of a different means, namely that his soft body can expand well beyond his normally tiny frame. 

Thankfully a friend-shaped reminder is on the way in the form of this fluffy and extra big Kirby plush making its way to Japanese arcades and game centers!



Soft and huggable with a textured surface, it may be the most ideal hug partner ever attainable by mechanical claws. He’ll be popping up in arcades during the month of December, and will hopefully appear on import sites and from secondhand sellers shortly after.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
