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 Switch footage for clues about touchscreens and expandable storage. This is reality, my friends. It exists in the real world. It is, to put it bluntly, "a thing".
The range - which is real, don't forget - includes plush toys, playing cards, shirts, notepads and even a 3DS shell. Sweet Lord above.
Pokémon centers in Japan will be selling all of the merchandise shown on this page from October 29th. We're seriously considering a trip to the Far East just to make sure this isn't some elaborate joke designed to toy with our fragile minds.
I wish I was
Oh, My Heaven....
Mario Pikachu New 3DS XL hard cover ?!
Gosh....! I LOVE IT !
BTW, Mario Pikachu SHOULD be on Nintendo Switch, in HD and 3D.
Are we looking at a Switch launch title hint?
Dagnabbit Nintendo, stop making stuff we want to buy!
I MUST HAVE THAT COVER PLATE
Pikachu DLC for the new Mario game confirmed?
Why didn't they just call him Marichu?
Personally, I would've gone for Turtonator as Bowser.
I have a Mario... I have a Pikachu... UH! MARIOPIKACHU!
Marichu... LOL XD
And then Luichu.
Marichu started in Pichu form. By eating a Muhroom, it will become Marichu. If eating Electric Flower, it can unleashed Electric Shock. If eating Giant Mushroom, it become a Gigantic Raichu. XD
XD XD XD
Psst... it is Marichu... XD
Seems like a missed opportunity to not have made an Alolan form of Pikachu. It would have made more sense for Luigichu to at least take on a different form.
And I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see a Mario Pikachu 3D platformer!!!!
I'm pretty sure that during the whole Pokémon franchise lifetime that atleast, somewhere, a Chinese knockoff of this was made.
I was in several Pokémon Centers in July and August! Too late
That's about as disturbing as Mario Yoshi from Yoshi's Woolly World
@TheHumbleFellow I firmly believe that Luigi should have been Pichu too (and if they were to ever make Wario & Waluigi plushes, they should be Raichu & Mimikyu respectively).
@Moroboshi876 Same here! Booked my holiday just a couple months too early 😕
I'm so conflicted. I love Luigi, but absolutely loathe Pikachu
I must have those plushies!
Seen this, though?
@Grandpa_Pixel Profanity filter doesn't like the d-word that rhymes with ham.
a pokemon skin on a mario game would be awesome
@gcunit Oh really? Huh. I thought that would be ok. Alright noted
@Anti-Matter When he eats a mushroom, he cries "Lets-a-chew!"
It's much cuter than Mario in a Pikachu costume that's for sure. I'd really love that cover plate for my black N3DSXL.
I'd love a framed picture of that Mario/Pikachu cover lol
Are those official Pokemon cards? Like tournament official? That would be kind of cool.
Think I'll be sending the missus on a trip into Nintendo NY to see if they carry any of this stuff. 8 nights of Hanukkah, we need all the swag we can get.
@sillygostly Missed opportunity? That's an overused cliche among commenters on this site. Just because they didn't do something you think would have been cool doesn't make it a missed opportunity.
I think this is a cute crossover. Probably won't be buying any of this stuff though.
I demand an Amiibo activated Pikachu costume for Mario in the next 3D Mario.
...lol...Will the “real” Mario Brothers please stand up. ...please stand up ..
Well then. This....happened.
Looks good, and it acknowledges more than one generation of Pokemon. Can't complain.
What the...I don't even...
It's a thing, but is it a good or bad thing?
Gimme Gimme Gimme
I'm so buying half of this.
Loving the nod to the original box art. I'd probably wear that on a t-shirt
I need the plushies and the hanafuda cards!
Hey, stay away from that squirtle, Pikachu!
Japan always gets the cool stuffs
. . .
lol. this is too cute for words. definitely made my morning.
Question. Why did it take this long, to realize combining these two characters was a great idea?
I WANT THIS NOW!!!
I NEED those TCG cards!!! ;o;
These are cute, but since I'm not a big fan of Pikachu, I won't be getting these, even the Luigi one. (Wow, it's rare for me to type "won't be getting" and "Luigi" is the same sentence!) XD
This isss.......surprisingly adorable! Would be cool to have Mario Pikachu as a playable character in a Mario game lol.
@Blue_Blur nice to see I'm not the only one that feels this way
...I was expecting a game.
I love they made a version of the classic Famicom SMB art.
One step closer to Sonichu..
Now we just need a Link Charmander!
I want one... But I'll never have it
Was hoping this would be a knew mobile title...
What I care more is the Bowser Blastoise!
Later...Super Marichu Galaxy, Paper Marichu, Marichu Kart, Marichu Party, Luichu Mansion, Marichu and Sonichu series, Marichu Tennis, Marichu Crossing, etc for next Nintendo games. XD
I don't want no stupid Pikachu in my Mario!
Pikachu is pretty adorable, even I am not really a Pokemon gamer. Mario + Pikachu = Totally Chute :3
Yeey!! Very good and cute!!
Only two things in the cover of super pikachu bros, XD
Diance x Meloetta and Blastoise x Charizard
I'm almost feeling like my life won't be complete until I have one Mario Pikachu sitting in my bed because it's just so freaking adorable.
This crossover NEEDS a Nintendo Switch game!!!
Would have preferred an actual Mario Pikachu game...
@foodmetaphors dont be fooled, its only for the XL
This works way better than it should.
That's a cute rendition of the classic non-US Super Mario Bros. box art.
Why no Peach Pikachy with heart tail?!
Pikachy ? XD XD XD
When Pikachy got kidnapped by Blastowser, literally she would scream "MARICHU...!!!". XD
There's better be a Wario Granbull.
Home console line + Portable console line = Nintendo Switch
Biggest mascot + Second biggest mascot = Mario Pikachu
??? + ??? = ??????
Lol. I feel similar. Luigi is so fantastic that even if you DID love Pikachu, it means there's less Luigi there so it could only be a step down from perfection.
I don't even understand why this is a thing. Who is this for???
That's really awesome!
Couldn't have called it Mario-chu or pik-ario or something?
@pek727 Mario and Pokémon fans or because its the anniversary for both of them?.....yeah I don't get it either.
I would get the 3DS Case (assuming its for the new one and not the original) the shirt, luigi plush and keychain, card case, and 3DS game cartridge case (mostly because I need one)
@Pod Because Pokémon already has a princess. Princess Diancie.
I got one card
It’s luigi Pikachu
I hope the cards aren't an actual set, if my pokemon tcg nut of a daughter sees a mario version, my a** is grass and Santa Claus is gonna have to hit some major overtime to fill her stocking
Wonder if a Yoshizard or sqWariotle is possible ???
Team Bowsket, with WaJamesigi, Jessie Kong and Luiowth ???
I love this and want all of the things seen AND a game
