Nintendo has escalated the cuteness arms race.
As part of a wide-ranging announcement of games, accessories, and release dates on Monday, the company unveiled Mega Yarn Yoshi, a plush oversize Amiibo figurine of Mario and Luigi’s green-skinned dinosaur pal. As with Nintendo’s other Amiibo offerings (including a smaller standard Yarn Yoshi), the figurine will integrate wirelessly with compatible videogames, such as the Wii U title Yoshi’s Woolly World.
Naturally, all that kawaii comes at a premium: Mega Yarn Yoshi has a suggested retail price of $39.99, while the standard version comes bundled with Woolly World for $59.99 or costs $16.99 as a standalone. The big green guy goes on sale Nov. 15.
