In today's episode of 'Japan gets all the cool things and we're immensely jealous', Nintendo has announced that its adorable selection of Sanei Trading Pikmin plush is making a comeback.
The cutesy set is available to order right now from Nintendo's official Japanese store – although worldwide shipping is sadly not available – after originally selling out. If you're lucky enough to live in Japan or have access to a Japanese address, you can pre-order your chosen Pikmin now with shipping expected to take place in April.
You'll find the usual Red, Blue, and Yellow Pikmin available as part of the set, alongside Pikmin 3's Rock and Winged Pikmin, Olimar, and a Bulborb.
As gutted as we are about not being able to order these ourselves, perhaps there's some hope that Nintendo will make us feel a bit better by finally revealing Pikmin 4 in today's Nintendo Direct. Ha, who are we kidding!
Pikmin 4 announcement confirmed!
hahaha, Can't wait to see this in Arlo's news roundup.
@Eddyson I too have been enjoying those. NL should just hire him. I can already imagine the ridiculous grin on my face if I popped onto Youtube one day and saw a thumbnail with Arlo and Alex in a video together
How awesome......for Japan...
@Jacob1092 Yes. That would be so awesome. I know he used to write stories for a Nintendo magazine, so it's not too unlikely . . .
@TeamRocket47 @Jacob1092 Yes, Arlo joining the NIntendolife discussions would be amazing. I really like Jon and Alex's repertoire as of late. Arlo could be an amazing addition. (Zion is also cool)
Nintendo could make so much more money if they could actually be bothered, bringing these to the rest of the world would be a start.
Also see: restocking old Amiibos (and many other things).
To bad for me awww. but nintendo new today now I need to go take a nap before this badboy staarts.
I really got to get a shipping buddy in Japan.
If you look on ebay you can find pages of these from China and usually cheaper than getting them from a store. The quality has been the same with the expensive ones I've bought. They're either coming from the same factory through the back door, or they are coming from a factory that copies them exactly, tags and all.
That blue one looks like it regrets its life choices.
@Eddyson Must be tough for him, only liking three or so different franchises.
@Ralizah Hahaha what? I like TOO many things/franchises. Why would you say I only like three different franchises?
Pikmin 4 confirmed?
I hope DKC will also get some plushies in the future. I would die to have a Lanky Kong-plush toy.
Luckily I live in Japan. Just ordered the yellow one!
@Eddyson You mentioned Arlo putting plushies in a news roundup. I replied to you and said: "Must be tough for him, only liking three or so different franchises."
What's the confusion?
Never any love for purple or white
I have the red yellow and blue pikmin so that juicy rock pikmin is looking enticing. Also the pink looks freaky but cute.
I bought the red ,yellow and blue when I went to japan. They are so cute!
@Ralizah hmmm, I feel like you edited your comment.
Anyway, Arlo can be a bit unchanging and repetitive when it comes to his love of video games/franchises. You are right about that.
