Happy 25th anniversary Kirby! Here's that weird pink poncho you never asked for

There are many video game-themed products I understand owning. A Pokemon coffee mug. A Warcraft mousepad. A Metal Gear Solid keychain. But I'm gonna be honest: I don't know who in the world wants to buy, let alone wear, a Kirby-themed poncho. Look how round it is. Just WHY? 

There are pajamas, jackets, backpacks, sleep masks, and... yep. Undies. Look how surprised they are. Not as surprised as us... 

The collection is, ostensibly, to celebrate Kirby's 25th anniversary. The clothes and accessories will be sold at Japanese retailer Yummy Mart starting April 26.

If you're a bit more electronically-inclined, Nintendo revealed during a recent Nintendo Direct that it has a new Kirby game set to release this holiday. Or you could wait and see if the SNES Classic Edition rumor is true.
