During E3 2019, the internet went slightly mad for Gooigi. While the character existed before this year's E3, he really got the spotlight due to his major appearance in Luigi's Mansion 3. Plenty of people who caught their first glimpse of Gooigi were instantly intrigued, and they needed to know more. For some reason, everyone was dying to know if Gooigi is edible.
In a Game Informer interview, Nintendo's Kensuke Tanabe revealed that Gooigi is most likely edible, as the character is sort of like Jell-o or gummy candies. Now Verge has taken things a step further to ask what Gooigi tastes like, and Tanabe was more than happy to answer by saying that Gooigi "might taste like coffee."
That might seem odd at first, but it actually makes perfect sense. Tanabe had previous explained that "Professor E. Gadd extracted a bunch of energy out of the ghost that he captured, and then he accidentally spilled coffee on it, and that's how the goo was made." Certainly seems like a coffee flavor is the way to go!
With so many Gooigi fans coming out of E3, what does the future hold for the character? Tanabe has said that if Luigi's Mansion 3 is a sales success, it could lead to bigger and better things for the gooey one.
“There might be a Gooigi-only spinoff perhaps, with all different colors. Gooigi Power Rangers.”
