Tiny Cartridge 3DS

Dragon’s Crown, Metrico, Fez, Proteus free with PS Plus ⊟
Well you’re pretty much set for Vita games in August if you have Plus. Fez, which everyone should really at least try. Proteus, which I want to try. Metrico, an intriguing new release in which you platform through infographics. And Dragon’s Crown, whose addition makes PS Plus the Vanillaware Subscription Service.
Sony’s trying way too hard to make PS Plus irresistible. It’s totally working. Get Dragon’s Crown however you can!

You did it, Game Boy ⊟
You made it to 25 years old (in the U.S.). With some nudging from Game & Watch, you kicked off an entire line of Nintendo portables. You made Tiny Cartridge possible. You gave us the best Zelda. You popularized chiptunes. You are awesome.
I should have prepared a better image or a post, but I forgot about the system’s North American launch anniversary, so this is what we have. I’m tweeting a bunch of throwback Game Boy photos, though, and I have a number of posts that have sat in my Tumblr Likes for years, which I’ll get around to sharing over the next few days. Props to Cait for the GBC pic.

Bravely Second screens, art ⊟

I can’t get enough of Akihiko Yoshida’s art — the close-up of Agnès comes from a scan of Famitsu's recent issue. See the full piece here.

Few items we’ve learned about the game recently:

  • Sales for Bravely Default (including the original version released in Japan), crossed one million units, 600,000 of those from the West
  • Supercell’s ryo will provide new music for Bravely Second instead of Default's original composer Revo
  • Producers Tomoya Asano and Shinji Takahashi, aided by Souki Tsukishima, will take over writing duties from Naotaka Hayashi
  • Classes shown so far: Valkyrie, Performer, Red Mage, and Time Mage
  • One of the cities featured in the game, Guatelatio (shown above), serves as the Crystal Orthodoxy’s headquarters, and “sits at the entrance to the highway that leads to the Temple of Earth and the Holy Land,” according to details from the official site translated by Gematsu

Scan is via @ExeForce87, screens are from Famitsu.

Refurb 3DS deals at Nintendo ⊟
I just rediscovered (via Bboy AJ) that if you want a cheap 3DS, you can order one from Nintendo. Refurbished 3DS XLs are just $135 ($150 for Yoshi/Mario Bros. LE’s); in addition, you can get a Pearl Pink 3DS for $95 or a red 2DS for $90.
I originally started this post “just a heads up” then I went back to the NeoGAF thread and of course Bboy AJ started his post exactly the same way. Man I am the worst.

Fun “Pulse Fighter” music video ⊟

Whoa, this is really great! I wish Kumazon (Amazon.com for Bears?) was real. The music is all from Japanese chiptune artist Toriena, and the visuals are courtesy of m7kenji. Toriena just put out an album with Madmilky Records called A.I. Complex — you can preview it here. A digital download version of the album is coming soon.

The most beautiful Game Boys ⊟

I love, love, love these. I am SO tempted to pick one up and throw on a front light mod, then not play any other console for the rest of my life.

These gorgeous floral paintjobs come from Georgina, who makes and sells customized portables through her friend’s shop. If you want to commission something like this from Georgina, hit up her Tumblr.

Layton, Ace Attorney artbooks coming from Udon ⊟

Yayyy, Udon Entertainment will be publishing English versions of the Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies artbook and the Professor Layton handbook, which, by the way, had better have a puzzle on every other page or somebody done goofed.

Also the artbook for Gungnir, one of Sting’s Dept. Heaven strategy games? How intriguingly random. I am down with a reality in which a company can survive translating and printing artbooks for Gungnir in America.

Dark Witch’s Story - Chronicle 2D ACT on 3DS in Japan ⊟

Yep, that’s the title. This is a doujin/indie game by circle INSIDE SYSTEM, featuring a composer from the new fighter Under Night In-Birth, and an artist involved with Gaist Crusher. Kinda neat to see doujin-type stuff making it onto 3DS eShop!

I’m also into the look of this game in general. Cute sprites, and kind of a Mega Man-but-also-Kid-Dracula gameplay vibe. It’s out August 6 in Japan.

Doctor Popular - Rumspringa ⊟

West coast OG nerdrocker Doctor Popular brings us this music video from the track “Rumspringa” off of his latest album Destroy All Presets. Tasty Nanoloop crunchy beats make the perfect soundtrack for a silly video about chasing down a missing Game Boy cartridge.

Cooking Mama 5 out September 16 ⊟

Majesco sent out these new screens along with the release date for Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appetit. You can see Mama dressed up for “the new Cooking Dojo mode where Mama slips into her gi for some serious culinary training.” Serious, serious sticking kiwi to a cake.

You can also see the screen declaring “Parfait: perfect!” which I just find amusing.
