Who among us didn’t spend their childhood finding new and creative ways to violently murder their Sims? If you didn’t, I’m going to assume that you either weren’t allowed to play The Sims, or you’re a well adjusted person. Let’s be real though, none of us are well adjusted so more likely option A.
No matter how many times you forced your Sims to ignore the burning pancakes so that the kitchen would catch fire, there’s a new Sim on the block that nobody would dare harm. Baby Yoda.
If you thought that Baby Yoda’s domination of our world was starting to slow down, you’d be wrong. The newest addition has added a statue of him, called “The Child Statue” that will cost you 504 simoleons. You can put him anywhere, and then tell your Sims to “view,” where they will stare at him much like we all do. No word yet on whether or not they’ll cry over how cute he is like a real human.
Much like the original Baby Yoda himself, this sort of came out of nowhere. There was no indication that we’d get a statue of him in the patch notes, so his appearance was a very pleasant surprise.
For now, Baby Yoda will just chill in your house or garden (or wherever else you wanted to put him) because he’s… well… a statue. I have no doubt in my mind that someone is working on a playable character. If I can chat to a ghost, then dammit, I want to chat to Baby Yoda.
This cute surprise coincides with the release of some decent Baby Yoda merch, too. The initial releases were a bit shit but now we have plush toys to pre-order, so Merry Christmas to us. It’s a good day to pour all of your love onto a tiny, green 50 year old.
