Sure, sure, we’ve seen Sakurai’s insane gaming setup, but wouldn’t you like to know more about the couch he was sitting on during the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter reveal? Obsessive fans in Japan think they’ve now identified the exact model – or at least the brand of the couch – he sits on when he’s at home.
According to the Twitter user @Dragon_lily, it’s apparently a design by Japanese company Nitori. The couch featured in the first tweet (below) may not necessarily be the correct size and is more likely to be the one a two-seater, as noted by @SaberSnake.
Twitter user @Cheesemeister3k says the first model on display – priced at 161,029 Yen – roughly equates to $1,506.42 USD. The two-seater is valued at 99,900 Yen, which is about $931.96 USD. Some fans have supposedly even gone to furniture stores to try it out.
Unsurprisingly, this isn’t the first time an item of furniture has been identified by Nintendo fans during a broadcast. As you might recall, the former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé was spotted using an old Herman Miller chair, and a petition was then created to get him a new one.
