This Sure Is A Lot Of Ass Cheek For A Nintendo-Licensed Product

Nintendo is about as family-friendly as video game companies can get. This goes double for the company's merchandise, which normally begins at T-shirts and ends with plush representations of cute little Mushroom Kingdom characters.

So it's strange to see this figure of Tharja from Fire Emblem Awakening on the 3DS turn up, not only because it's a little bit adult (potentially NSFW image below), but for the way it's a little bit adult.

The fact it's obviously aimed primarily at the Japanese market - where NSFW figures aren't exactly rare — explains it, but still. What's interesting here isn't necessarily this statue in particular (Fire Emblem isn't out here yet, and it's way too pervy for my tastes), but the fact Nintendo is, apparently, cool with it.

What's next? Tingle in a suggestive state of undress? Actually, that would be fantastic.

    I'm sorry, but this product comes from the same industry that competes for the jiggliest boob physics, a little ass ain't nothing.

      ^ this guy right here doesn't get it.

    As a virile male, I have no problem with this.

    Not enough ass cheek more like it.

    Its funny how you say "potentially NSFW image below" Yet you dont put it in the title. :\

      Luke Plunkett works on a 12 inch screen and assumes you do too!!!
      But really while it's hardly a NSFW picture, I didn't exactly have to scroll down to see it.

    I was confused for a moment because the sign says Saria, not Tharja, but that's just her Japanese name. I've always been mystified why the translators choose a different name if it's not distinctly Japanese... Anyway, I think Nintendo may be ok with this because going by pictures, she actually wears a body suit, it's not naked flesh. Though it is a translucent bodysuit...

    "The fact it’s obviously aimed primarily at the Japanese market"

    You could have ended it there. If there's a buck to be made by making pervy nerds pay through the nose for plastic, it's only sensible for Nintendo to jump on it.

    Because western culture never objectifies or uses sex as a tool to sell....not ever.

    DAT ASS! :D

    (since no one has said it yet =P)
