'Stay Off The Hook'
We love the emails that Play Asia sends us sometimes - it's a reminder of how quirky some products in Japan are when compared to the sort of things which we get in the West. One thing which caught our eye today are these adorable Splatoon 2 themed hooded towels. Dress up like your favourite inkling and dry your hair at the same...
"The Worlds of Raw Denim & Street Fighter 2 Collide!!"
Jeans are pretty cool. They're fashionable - despite being invented many years ago - and hard-wearing. But you know what's really cool? Street Fighter II jeans. In a move that we're shocked hasn't happened sooner, clothing line Naked & Famous Denim is teaming up with Capcom to create a line...
Called "the emblem of the millennials", without any hint of irony
If you head into pretty much any toy store on the face of this planet you'll probably be able to pick up a Pokémon-themed watch for loose change, and while that might be enough for most fans of the series, it's good to know that those with more money than sense have other options...
Sunglasses not included

One for the mantelpiece
To commemorate the release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, First 4 Figures has released an incredible Link figure for those of you who have deep pockets and wide shelves.

Want a Famicom pen?
With the recent launch of the NES/Famicom Mini, Nintendo's debut home console has seen something of a pop culture resurgence. It's always been an iconic piece of tech, so it's no surprise that Nintendo hasn't been afraid to dip into its past a bit to tap into nostalgia every now and then. Of course, the new microconsole has been...
YOU MUST NEVER FORGET MIND IN EXPECTATION AND THE LOVE OF THOSE DAYS!
As any child of the '80s will tell you, Transformers were amazing. We're not talking about Bay-formers here - we mean Generation One, the series that started it all. We mean toys which actually looked like real vehicles, and boasted just as much die-cast metal in their...
There's Luigi Pikachu, too
Super Mario and Pikachu are two of the most recognisable characters on the planet, but you know what's better than both of these individuals? Mario Pikachu, that's what. No, you're not dreaming. All of these images are real. Mario Pikachu isn't a figment of your addled imagination, strained from hours of watching Nintendo...
Only in South Korea, sadly
Krispy Kreme doughnuts are pretty delicious, but Pokémon Krispy Kreme doughnuts are on an entirely different level of yumminess - as South Korean fans are discovering. They've been graced with a new range of doughnuts based on the famous monster-catching franchise, including a Squirtle, Pikachu and Pokéball. It's...

Standard toy still available in-store, though
Build-A-Bear Workshop has been riding the Pokémon hype train pretty well in recent months thanks to its adorable Pikachu plush which you can stuff yourself in-store, if you so wish. The retailer has now taken a second bite of the 'mon cherry with a cute and cuddly Eevee, and even went as far as to...
Move fast to get these
Hot Wheels and Nintendo have worked together in the past to create some cool Super Mario-themed cars, and the pair are teaming up once more for a fresh line of toys. Mario, Luigi, Toad, Bowser and Peach are all getting fresh cars, and they all look pretty neat, as you can see...
Looks like it might just get in the way, if you ask us
Remember the massive Snorlax bean bag? Well, Bandai is back with another cuddly Pokémon product - and this time, it's Eevee's turn to be immortalised in soft material. This particular soft toy comes with a cushion (designed to look like a cute little keyboard) which you can rest your arms on...

That's authentic polystone resin, that is
If you've got a spare £150 to burn and you fancy having a statue of portly Italian dressed in a catsuit sitting on your mantelpiece, then head over to the Official Nintendo UK Store and lay down some cash on the Cat Mario figurine, which arrives later this month. Based on the cat transformation seen in...
Depending on your preference
Metroid: Other M is surely one of the most divisive entries in the long-running sci-fi series, with fans loving and loathing its representation of Samus Aran in equal measure. Whatever your outlook on the controversial Wii title, Figma's latest Nintendo-themed offering should be of interest. Zero Suit Samus is fully...
Mario's been plastered over near enough everything in his time, and now the moustachioed mushroom menace can add swimming shorts to that ever-growing list. We decided it was worth slipping a pair on ourselves and taking to a marginally anticlimactic English waterfront to see how they fare. You can catch all the Baywatch-style...
Show us your hand
We hope you're not too attached to your cash, because Nintendo is releasing a series of Splatoon playing cards in Japan and if you're anything like us, you'll want them. All of them. The cards will be released in three different sets and are expected to launch in July. Just to loosen your resolve, Play-Asia has them up for...
A lot of Minecraft's appeal can be traced back to construction toys like plastic building blocks - a fact which is neatly acknowledged by the growing range of Lego toys based on Mojang's famous title. Lego's Minecraft sets have been pretty decent so far, but this latest offering is shaping up to be the most expansive - and expensive -...
Keep your threads fresh!
The world of Splatoon is populated almost entirely with cephalopods as far as we know. Although Judd may be the only furred creature left on the planet, any cat-owner knows he'll still find a way to get his hair over everything every squid in a 10-km radius owns. Do they even have, like, bones and stuff under all that fluff?...
Video game veteran Taito is producing a series of stretchy, goo-filled Splatoon squid toys. Now there's a sentence we didn't think we'd be typing when we woke up this morning. Due for release in Japan (where else?) on April 5th, the toys can be seen in action in the teaser video below. You can squeeze 'em, splat 'em and throw 'em in a...
Available for pre-order "soon"
The guns in Splatoon take a lot of inspiration from real-world water pistols, so it's perhaps a little surprising that Nintendo hasn't taken more advantage of this fact - an entire range of themed water shooters should have been available at launch; it would have been a licence to print money. Thankfully, the company...
Plague Knight has no right to be this adorable
Not long ago, we reported on the simply irresistible Shovel Knight plush, which we sincerely hope you all purchased at least one of. Now, we're once again ready to assist in the emptying of your bank account by showing off the full range of soft toys based on Yacht Club's excellent game - including an...
59 inches long, weighs 12kg, costs $430
The Pokémon Snorlax is famous for being a bit sleepy, so you can forgive Bandai for taking advantage of this trait by creating what is best described as a giant cushion based on the character. Available in Japan for 52,000 Yen (around $430 / £300 / 390 Euros), Snorlax (or Kabigon has he's known in his...

Perfect for displaying those figures
Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival is with us soon, and while it might not be generating the same interest as a "proper" Animal Crossing outing, the introduction of several new amiibo figures is helping to build the hype - and over in Japan, they're whipping fans into a frenzy with free tat. Japanese consumers...
If only we knew how to play
As we all know, Nintendo started out making playing cards - Hanafuda cards, to be precise - and although the company's focus has changed over the years, it has maintained a link with its past by producing special Hanafuda packs. The latest set is possibly the most visually alluring yet, and uses classic Super Mario...
The wait is un-bear-able

300+ pages of kid/squid goodness
As if the Inklings among us didn't already have enough to celebrate, it looks like the 2-disc soundtrack we recently reported on isn't the only piece of Splatoon merchandise emerging from the watery depths this year. Freshly announced by Famitsu magazine and translated by
Only in Japan, of course
Yo-Kai Watch is massive in Japan, and that means there are plenty of opportunities for all kinds of cross-promotional activity. However, few ideas are as zany as these McDonald's French Fry holsters, which allow you to slot in your pack of chopped potatoes and keep them warm during your quests to locate naughty spirits...
Limited to the UK for now, it would seem
MCV has reported that Nintendo is planning its own "Loot Crate" subscription service, and will operate it via The Hut Group, which is in charge of the company's UK Online Store. The "N-Box" will contain toys, clothes and other merchandise, and will apparently adopt a 3, 6 and 12 month subscription plan. They...
Yours for just (!) $150 + postage
Capcom is a company that knows how to produce merchandise of varying standards, from awful tat to desirable but expensive collectables. We're not sure where this wearable Mega Man replica helmet comes in with those definitions, to be honest - the 'replica' reference in the product description is also amusing, as how...
Prepare yourselves, Rockman fans
Have you ever gone to an expo, fancy dress party or your local Mega Man Appreciation Club and thought "hm, I wish I could look more like Mega Man"?

Nintendo should really sell more of this stuff
In this latest entry of 'the internet does the strangest things', we have the entrepreneurial activities around the Club Nintendo Majora's Mask Light, pictured above. Listed earlier today on Club Nintendo in PAL territories, the cool but rather modest light - measuring just 12cm by 12cm - is already...
The big marketing push continues
The RPG genre may not be quite as all-conquering as it once was, but Nintendo and developer Monolith Soft are clearly very determined to make a success out of Xenoblade Chronicles X for Wii U. We've seen a solid couple of months of build-up through 'special presentations' in flashy videos, while a handsome hardware...
Begone, foul undergarments
Playing on your Game Boy all day long is so much fun, but if you're anything like us you'll find that it tends to eat up time you'd usually spend cleaning your house and tidying away all the smelly clothing you casually drop on the floor. If only someone could somehow combine these two elements to make the process of...
Strut your stuff in style
Gaming-themed clothing is a pretty big business these days, with plenty of clothing companies waking up to the fact that - hey - gamers like spending lots of cash on items emblazoned with images from their favourite titles.

Coming to Australia this year
Nintendo has some of the most recognisable IP in the world of entertainment, and is clearly taking steps to leverage its library of characters with a new "World of Nintendo" range of toys and merchandise. 2014's big release Mario Kart 8 is getting a sizable push, with special track sets and cars hitting the market...
Still no battling in the Eiffel Tower
It's no secret that the Kalos Region of Pokémon X & Y was inspired by the beauty, culture, and charming professors(?) of France. Now, for a fleeting amount of time, the real country will more closely resemble its virtual counterpart with its own Pokémon Center. As reported by Serebii and posted on the...
Something for true "fans" of the series
Monster Hunter is pretty big in Japan, in case you hadn't noticed. This is made abundantly clear by the sheer volume of merchandise that is available, and we think we may have found the "coolest" item yet. Ahem. The official Monster Hunter USB fan features a rather burly-looking knight carrying an impressive...

Comes in two flavours
Compared to Nintendo's other main franchises, there's an undeniable lack of Metroid merchandise out there in the wild, but Japanese figurine manufacturer Max Factory is taking a stab at correcting that with two new figures based on Metroid: Other M as spotted at a recent Japanese toy fair. One figure will be a small replica of Samus in her Power Suit and will be fully..
We know someone who would

First 4 Figures continuing its Metroid Gunship Series
If the recent listing of the life-size Samus Aran promotion statue was too big for you to handle, then you might be interested in First 4 Figures' latest model in its Metroid Gunship Series as it's considerably smaller and won't be a nuisance when it comes to vacuuming. The Metroid Prime Gunship, as featured in Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime:..
They're called Formation Arts, apparently
While Square Enix's other main RPG series have received countless merchandise tie-ins over the years, Super Nintendo RPG Chrono Trigger has always been a little thin on the collectables front.

Link cosplay costumes everywhere rejoice!
It's no wonder Link does the things he does. All he needs is a fairy in a jar and he can go and do whatever stupid thing he wants and the fairy'll just reanimate his corpse. Pretty handy when you're out battling pig demon things and whatnot. Your mortal enemy may not be a Machiavellian tyrant, but that doesn't mean you wouldn't look dashing with the latest..
Own your very own Toki Tori!
A while ago Two Tribes expressed their desire to create Toki Tori merchandise. But it was all up to fan demand if they would actually be made.
