Super Mario x Pokémon, Swarovski crystal and graffiti merch to launch with new Nintendo & Pokemon stores in Japan
The “cool merch that only Japan gets” train is on a roll this week. Earlier this week we got a first look at the new merch that will go on sale in Tokyo Nintendo – but now there’s even more.
Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have announced a range of new merchandise that will go on sale in both the new Nintendo Tokyo store but also the new Shibuya Pokémon Center (which are in the same place). And it’s a cross promotion “scramble”.
The Tokyo Nintendo store will sell goods featuring 8-bit sprites of Pokemon characters but made up of sprites from the Super Mario games. The Pokémon Center will sell goods with Super Mario
The rest of the goods will only be at the new Pokemon Center. These are some new graffiti art inspired keyrings, skateboard decks and plushes – Pikachu with a spray can sure is a thing!
And if you’re after something classy, there’s some Pokémon phone cases and other gear with Swarovski Crystal.
Both Nintendo Tokyo and Pokémon Center Shibuya open on November 22nd, so you’ve still got time to book a flight.
