Kirby and the Forgotten Land should be on every Switch owner’s radar, being the latest adventure from Dream Land’s defender. If you’d rather look back instead of forward, a new line of plushes are on the way that take inspiration from the tough pink puff’s previous games!

Each of these is inspired by the Kirby 30th Anniversary key art, and it’s an impressive assortment for what’s hopefully the first of multiple waves. That said, some deep cuts managed to make their way in, including one based on Kirby’s most notable non-game endeavor…

It’s Kirby: Right Back at Ya!

The early 2000’s anime is getting some love via a plush featuring Tiff and Tuff dolls. That’s right, it’s a plushie holding more plushies. Another nice detail that’s most noticeable with this particular one is that each of the six plushes has a different shade of pink for Kirby, meant to capture his look more fully from that particular source.

The six variants are:

  • Kirby: Squeak Squad (featuring a chest that opens to reveal delicious cake)
  • Kirby Air Ride (with the North American box’s angry eyebrows)
  • Kirby’s Dream Land 2 (which is really more of a Kine plush than a Kirby plush)
  • Kirby’s Dream Course (you can remove Kirby from the hole!)
  • Kirby: Planet Robobot (the goggles, they do nothing…)
  • and the aforementioned Kirby: Right Back at Ya!

Each sells for ¥1800, or just over $15 after conversion. Be on the lookout for where and how you can pre-order and import these Kirby 30th Anniversary celebratory cuties.
