There’s a new Kirby merch line coming from the Japanese retailer SuperGroupies to celebrate the star surfer’s thirtieth anniversary and it looks wicked cute. Better still, with distribution in the U.S.A, this is one exciting Nintendo tie-in that isn’t a Japan exclusive, meaning you can start thinking about which of the perfect pink Kirby products most tickles your fancy.
The SuperGroupies Kirby merch line consists of a watch, reversible jacket, shoulder bag, sneakers, and a wallet, each emblazoned with plenty of stars and the pink puffball himself. The wallet, sneakers, and jacket all arrive first in late July 2023, with the shoulder bag available around mid-August, and the watch last up for grabs at some point in September.
With pre-orders now open, if you like the look of these Kirby goodies, don’t waste any time in getting your order in. We often see limited edition merch like this sell out very quickly, so if you want to secure the Kirby timepiece, and god knows I do, be sure to head over to the official SuperGroupies website.
The Supergroupies Kirby merch line isn’t the first celebration of thirty years of Kirby we’ve seen. Just last summer we were treated to the Kirby 30th anniversary music festival, with some incredible performers recreating tunes from the long history of the star surfer. There’s also the not-small matter of the Kirby Return to Dreamland Deluxe release date being just around the corner, so it looks like 2023 is set to be another stellar year for fans of the Kirbster.
