October Sugoi Crate Revealed!


Each month, we send one lucky subscriber a huge crate filled with Japanese toys, games, and snacks!




We traveled to Japan to pick out awesome items you can’t find anywhere else. These items are so incredibly obscure that they each deserve a full explanation. Read on!

Sugoi Item #4) Super Mario Bros Wii Lucky Coin Jr.

A few years ago, Capcom released an arcade game based on the popular Super Mario Bros Wii. game. This fun handheld version has the same concept of the arcade game: using a battery to operate it, you drop the coin into one of the three top slots, where a platform then moves to push the coins out, just like in the big version! You may not win your favorite plushie or other arcade prizes, but you can challenge your friends and loser buys everyone lunch! \(≧∇≦)/




Sugoi Item #5) The Art of Princess Mononoke

Let the art live with you forever in this book featuring behind-the-scenes looks at the art production, concepts, and the creation of the story itself.













Sugoi Item #6) Panda Shrine Stealing Coin Bank

This mechanical coin bank makes saving money even more fun, even with a “stealing” Panda! While the lid is closed, place a coin on top of the white plate. Watch as the lid opens to reveal the cute little panda that peeks out to snatch the coin with his paw! Don’t worry, he’s keeping it safe! (◕‿◕✿)








Sugoi Item #7) Tuttuki Bako (Poking Box)



We know this may look a bit odd at first, but trust us, it’s fun! Tuttuki Bako (Poking Box) is an augmented reality game that lets you interact with digital creatures inside the box, by sticking your finger in! You’ll see a digital image appear of your finger, as you’re moving creatures and figures, as well as causing all sorts of virtual fun!





Sugoi Item #8) Yo-Kai Watch (Jibanyan)


The game (as well as manga and anime) Youkai Watch is set in an average town, yet is filled with all kinds of Japanese monsters called youkai, like this one known as Jibanyan. Jibanyan is the spiritual ghost of a cat who seems to be able to cause different sorts of curses to anyone by having them touch his waistband. Don’t let him fool you into crossing the street when you’re not suppose to!



Sugoi Item #9) Meiji Chocolate Almonds



Meiji Chocolate Almonds are a delicious snack for all chocolate lovers. A tasty combination of crunchy almonds and smooth, dark chocolate is sure to fulfill your sweet tooth needs!







Sugoi Item #10) Giant Rainbow Pocky



Giant + Pocky = what better combination could there be?! These huge delicious Rainbow Pocky sticks are just like your favorite regular version of Pocky, but supersized, colorful, and packed with unique flavors! 21 sticks with 3 each of the following mouth-watering flavors: strawberry, vanilla, blueberry, orange, banana, matcha, and chocolate! Yummy!





Sugoi Item #11) Oreo Granola Sticks



We know, this isn’t your typical Oreo or granola! These individual mini chocolate bars are coated with delicious white chocolate and packed full of granola, apple, crushed Oreo cookies and icing, that might even make you forget what real oreos are! Perfect for the upcoming Fall season, too!


Sugoi Item #12) XBox One (Masterchief Edition) with Dragonball XV Xenoverse




Last but certainly not least, we’re including the Xbox One gaming system! Get the ultimate Halo experience with the Master Chief Edition, honoring the iconic hero and his epic journey. We’re also throwing in the Dragonball XV Xenoverse game, where your battles are set in full 3D destructible scenes. How cool is that?!
