The hype train for Splatoon continues, and it comes stuffed with plushies. Japan will be receiving a pair of high-quality squid plushies this July, featuring the likeness of the Inklings’ squid forms in orange and green. They will retail for 2,800 Yen (about $23), which sounds like a lot for what looks like fluffy themed pillows, but it’s about average for this sort of thing over there. They measure about 12″ by 4″ by 14″. Nintendo seems to have high hopes for the franchise to start merchandising so early. Plus, they are pretty cute, and they do look suitably soft.

No ink, though. Whether that is a plus or a minus is up to you.

Our Verdict

Stefan Terry
One of my earliest memories with games was just after Pokémon had come out in the states for the first time. I remember, after having watched the show for a couple weeks, stumbling across a friend with an original Gameboy playing Pokémon Red version using a Weedle. When he told me he was playing Pokémon, I told him I didn't know there was a Pokémon that had a pumpkin for a head. Boy games have come a long way. Speaking of games, I also contribute to making them somewhat professionally, and ocassionaly write about them. You should see some of that games writing stuff, I hear it's real popular with the kids these days.
