Nintendo and Target have worked together plenty of times in the past. Be it Mario Kart shopping carts, exclusive amiibo, or Pokémon Mystery Gifts; it’s one of the company’s go-to retail partners. Joining that reputation is their roundest and most cosmically powerful character of all — Kirby!

Just in time for Kirby and the Forgotten Land’s launch, it looks like Target stores are decorating their… orbs?… with Kirby slipcovers. Now guests will be greeted by his smiling face, among others.



We were able to find these firsthand, and grabbed some pictures of the decor. Sadly, these aren’t a sign of the Mouthful Mode backpack cover being offered as a pre-order bonus outside the US, though Target does have a pouch on offer for those who pick up a copy of the game in-store.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land releases tomorrow, March 25th!

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.
