General Nintendo

We knew that Pearl and Marina would be getting a new Off the Hook figma for Splatoon 2, but it only existed as a prototype prior to today. The final design has now been revealed, which you can see above.

Today’s news comes as part of WonHobby Gallery 2020 Autumn. The same event also gave us a first look at the new Melia figure from Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition and new Nendoroids, including Marnie, Doom Slayer, and Crash Bandicoot.


Melia scale figure

Earlier this year, Good Smile revealed that a new scale figure was in the works for Melia based on her appearance in Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition. She’s now been shown off for the first time as part of WonHobby Gallery 2020 Autumn. Previously, we only had concept art.

Good Smile hasn’t said when the new Melia figure will be releasing. Stay tuned for further updates.


Marnie Nendoroid

Good Smile has revealed a trio of new Nintendo-related Nendoroids. Although they’re only in prototype form currently and lack color, the figures include Marnie from Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, Doom Slayer from Doom, and Crash Bandicoot.

Here’s the full set:

Bayonetta Nendoroid

Update (10/20): Play-Asia has opened pre-orders for the Bayonetta Nendoroid here.

Original (10/16): It’s been awhile, but you may remember that a Nendoroid for Bayonetta was previously announced at Wonder Festival. We then saw a prototype version back in February, though it lacked any sort of color. Now the full figure has been properly shown with the latest update from Good Smile.

The Bayonetta Nendoroid is targeted for release in July 2021. We have a bunch of photos showing off the new figure below.


The Pokemon Company has shared a promotional video for new Pokemon filters coming to TikTok as of October 16, 2020. It appears that custom filters of Pikachu, Kubfu, Wooloo, Morpeco, and more will be available in the app until November 16, 2020.

My Nintendo continues to receive new physical rewards. A new batch of items were just added in North America, including ones for Super Mario 3D All-Stars, Paper Mario: The Origami King, and more.

Here’s the full lineup:

Super Nintendo World

At least for now, Super Nintendo World is largely focused on Mario. The whole park is themed around the franchise, including the attractions themselves. So what’s Pikmin doing in new promotional art that’s now popped up online?

We have a look at the full art piece below. It features the usual cast of characters, including Mario, Luigi, Peach, various enemies, and more. But hidden by Luigi is a single red Pikmin.

My Nintendo has updated in Europe with a new reward. For 300 Platinum Points, fans can get their hands on a set of posters for Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy are featured.

The poster set can be redeemed on My Nintendo here.

Mario Cafe & Store

Super Nintendo World won’t be opening at Universal Studios Japan until Spring 2021. However, the Mario Cafe & Store will debut later this week. The public can gain access starting on October 16, though members of the press were given early access.

Bloomberg reporter Takashi Mochizuki attended the media event and shared a number of photos on Twitter. We’re able to get a closer look at the actual venue, merchandise on sale, and food items up for grabs.
