Baby Yoda is everywhere and there is no escape. The Mandalorian‘s cute alien infant has now made his official video game debut, though it isn’t in one you’d expect.
Added in The Sims 4‘s Dec. 12 patch, players can now place a statue of viral sensation Baby Yoda in their Sims’ home to brighten their virtual lives. The new addition wasn’t mentioned in the game’s patch notes, so became a delightful surprise for many players diving into The Sims‘ Build Mode after the update.
Unfortunately, the Child Statue isn’t terribly cost effective. Baby Yoda will set your hardworking Sims back 504 Simoleons, and despite his adorably large eyes and bat-like ears, he only improves their environment by one point. Sounds fake, but OK.
“Officially known as ‘The Child’ but affectionately referred to as ‘Baby Yoda,’ this statue is a lovable replica inspired by the Disney+ live action series The Mandalorian,” says the item description.
The Sims‘ developer EA owns the video game rights to Star Wars, and was the studio behind November’s action-adventure game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Now it seems they’ve found a way to introduce the galaxy far, far away to their less celestial titles.
Of course, this opens up the imagination to the possibility of a whole constellation of Star Wars Sims content. Sims duelling with lightsabers, using the Force, drinking blue milk, and jamming out to “Jabba Flow” in Simlish (which would sound exactly the same).
They probably won’t ever let players make a Baby Yoda Sim, though. I don’t even want to think about what he would look like grown up.
