Nintendo revealed a new water gun inspired by Mario’s companion dinosaur Yoshi. The yellow one is brand-new, and it is immediately available for purchase at the Nintendo Tokyo store in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan. [Thanks, Game Watch!]
The Yoshi water gun has a miniature figure of the character standing on the gun while pointing a finger. It also features the dinosaur’s iconic egg as a water-storing tank. The water gun set is now available in two colors: green and yellow.
In the same tweet, Nintendo Tokyo also reminded people that it is selling more water guns based on other Nintendo franchises, such as Kirby and Splatoon. The Kirby water gun has the eponymous character act as the water-filling tank, with the legendary Star Rod acting as the squirt gun. The Splatoon water guns are directly based on the Splattershot gun and the Splatterscope charger that appeared in the game.
The latest titles for all three franchises, including Splatoon 2 and Yoshi’s Crafted World, are immediately available on Nintendo Switch. Nintendo is currently working on Splatoon 3, which was first revealed at the February 2021 Nintendo Direct with a release window in 2022. Meanwhile, Viz Media is working on the localization of Kirby Manga Mania, with its first volume just released on June 8, 2021.
