Beams to Sell Life-Sized Pikachu Plushie

Japanese clothing chain Beams is getting ready to launch a new Pikachu plush doll that is said to be life-sized. Before you start to wonder whether there’s a real life version of Pikachu, we’re taking it to mean that it measures the same as Pikachu would if it were real (although we have no problems with a Pikachu actually existing.

One of the consequences of the Nintendo 64 cartridges being successfully dumped, aside from allowing people to re-play games from their childhood via emulators on the PC, is that ROM hackers were able to tinker with the games themselves, resulting in new cheat codes, modifications, and in the case of Conker’s Bad Fur Day, finding content that was never meant for the public to see.
