Best Nintendo brand crossovers merchandise

People love gaming crossovers – there’s something very satisfying about seeing characters interact from several beloved franchises. Games such as Super Smash Bros. are extremely popular due to this because Nintendo has some of the most iconic characters in the game industry. The company constantly leverages this popularity to feature their characters in other crossovers as well, including merchandise.

Nintendo has created merchandise with some of the biggest brands in various industries (such as apparel, food, and toys), and there is a lot out there to sift through. Luckily, we’ve pinpointed the biggest brands that the Big N has partnered with, and created a list of the top ten crossovers that can be bought today. Additionally, all of these featured items are available internationally, as Japan gets a lot of exclusive Nintendo brand crossovers.

So, without further ado, here is a list of the best 10 Nintendo crossover merchandise that can be purchased right now.

Kirby Forgotten Land Star Allies connection

There are now two major Kirby games on Switch. Kirby Star Allies came first and was largely 2D, but you might be interested to know that it largely paved the way for Kirby and the Forgotten Land.

Shinya Kumazaki, who was the general director of both games, spoke about their development connection with Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream. Kumazaki says that Star Allies was a means of “laying the groundwork for future works and we were sure that the next game would be 3D.” Interestingly, HAL Laboratory felt that Star Allies and Forgotten Land were “a single large connected project.”

Kirby and the Forgotten Land has highest sell-through for any entry in the series to date

According to Nintendo, Kirby and the Forgotten Land has experienced the highest sell-through for any entry in the series to date.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land

Even though Kirby has been around for three decades, the series never really tried its hand at full-on 3D gameplay. That finally changed this year with the release of Kirby and the Forgotten Land. By all accounts, the team really nailed it – but that doesn’t mean turning Kirby from 2D to 3D was a simple task.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land co-directors Shinya Kumazaki and Tatsuya Kamiyama reflected on the game’s development in a recent interview of Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream. Designer Yuki Endo was present for the discussion as well.

According to the latest sales data from GfK, Kirby and the Forgotten Land is now the most successful Kirby game in the UK. That tidbit of information is based strictly on physical sales. However, digital downloads are more prominent than they’ve ever been, making the game’s success even more significant.

We previously reported that Kirby and the Forgotten Land had the biggest Kirby launch ever in the UK. At the start of April, it became the series’ fourth best-selling entry.

Shinya Kumazaki, the director of Kirby and the Forgotten Land, has spoken about the origins of Mouthful Mode in a recent issue of Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream.

Mouthful Mode lets Kirby transform into various objects for different types of gameplay experiences. After inhaling a car for instance, the character can drive around and smash through walls.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land review

System: Switch
Release date: March 25, 2022
Developer: HAL Laboratory
Publisher: Nintendo

Since 1992, Kirby has brought along a multitude of adventures on just about every generation of Nintendo hardware with many planets, worlds, and creative levels. Despite the series’ lengthy history and popularity, however, it never really seemed to get proper recognition until entries on Wii and 3DS where an installed base of millions were finally able and willing to try out just what franchise had to offer. Now in 2022, Kirby is back on his biggest and most beautiful adventure yet with Kirby and the Forgotten Land, and it’s exceeded all expectations with incredibly deep levels, fluid gameplay, an evolving hub, tons of replayability, and a joyful, memorable time from beginning to end.
