Yoshi is not the first character from Nintendo to be featured in a squirt gun design, with Kirby and Splatoon both having their own options. Only images have been revealed thus far, but they give a good idea of what fans can expect before purchasing the item. While the designs are dramatically different for each squirt gun, Yoshi acts as an important part of the children’s toy’s inherent design.
Nintendo has revealed a new toy based on a franchise favorite character from the Super Mario Bros franchise. Yoshi has been a friend, mount, and hero within the series, and now fans can take him into the battlefield of squirt gun combat. Yoshi and his egg-based gear are already available for purchase at select stores.
In the shared image, Nintendo revealed the egg-shaped water tank with the small squirt gun attached by a clear cord. Yoshi is sitting prominently upon the shooter and points in the fire direction of the squirt gun. The entire kit is themed to Super Mario with a small image of Mario riding Yoshi placed on the handle. The kit comes in two colors offering fans a choice between yellow and green Yoshi. This squirt gun is available immediately in the Nintendo Tokyo Store located in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan. Some fans are speculating about future release options at Super Nintendo World, but Nintendo has offered no confirmation that this will ever happen.
In the tweet, Nintendo reminds fans that the Kirby and Splatoon water guns are available as well. The Splatoon weapons are based on the Splattershot gun and the Splatterscope charger from the franchise. Meanwhile, Kirby’s takes a more unique design. Kirby acts as the water holding tank, and his shooter is the Star Rod from the character’s franchise.
All of these are available for purchase, but fans are exceptionally excited about the Yoshi option. It is unknown what the squirt strength or total fill of the tank is, but many fans are planning on obtaining this as a collector’s item. At the moment, the squirt gun is exclusive to the Nintendo Store with no online sales available.
