There's simply not enough money in my wallet
Another day, another deluge of gaming merch. Today brings us new goodies tied to Kirby, Nier:Automata and Doki Doki Literature Club, and we’ve got the full details for you.
First up is the third installment in the Search for Kirby puzzle book series in Japan. This book is priced at 1,210 yen ($8.10), and they provide an experience similar to the classic line of Where’s Waldo books. In other words, the reader’s job with this book is to hunt down hidden Kirbys. Sometimes it’s classic Kirby and other times there are copy ability Kirbys hiding. The book includes artwork and imagery from the following Kirby titles:
- Kirby Air Ride
- Kirby and the Amazing Mirror
- Kirby and the Forgotten Land
- Kirby Fighters 2
- Kirby: Planet Robobot
- Kirby’s Pinball Land
As you might of guessed, there’s no word on a localization at this time. That said, this book is ripe for importing, as it’s all about pictures instead of words.
Next up is a set of new plush keychains based on the tactical support Pod units from NieR: Automata. In particular, these designs are based on the Pod units you see in the Ver1.1a anime. Each one is priced at ¥1,650 yen (or about $11) each, and they’ll release in Dec. 2023 in Japan. The two Pod units fans can pick up are Pod 042 and Pod 153.
