The world will get an otamatone Kirby this year, and thank god for that.
Otamatones are the adorably obnoxious toy instruments that have reached viral status for moving covers of classic songs such as “Ave Maria” and Smash Mouth’s “All Star.” Using a slide attached to a synthesizer mouth, the skilled otamatone artist can create beautiful renditions of just about whatever you want.
And soon, we’ll be able to rock it with Nintendo’s most underrated character, Kirby.
