Pikachu and Mario Combine for Crossover Merch

These Mario Pikachu items will only be available in Japan for now.


Nintendo and The Pokemon Company are teaming up to combine two of its most iconic characters: Mario and Pikachu. The resulting crossover character is an adorable little thing called, yup, you guessed it, "Mario Pikachu."

From October 29, Pokemon's beloved electric mouse will be available wearing Mario's red and blue outfit as a plushie at the Pokemon Center in Tokyo, Japan. There's also playing cards, keychains, notebooks, a t-shirt, and a Nintendo 3DS case with the character adorned on them. For fans of Mario's oft-forgotten brother, Luigi, there's versions of Pikachu wearing the green outfit too, so you're covered.

Take a look at the merchandise in the image gallery below, courtesy of the official Nintendo website.
