Are these Smash Bros. commercials corny or amazing? Settle it in Smash! ⊟

Let’s just settle everything in Smash. Disagreements over where to eat, theological debates, multi-generational feuds, border disputes between countries, government elections, child custody battles, etc. — we can settle it all with no items, Fox only, Final Destination.

You can see the other two commercials Nintendo of America put out after the break. The Punch-Out!! one is particularly amusing.

Clearly it is no longer the Year of Luigi ⊟
If it was, there’s no way the blessed brother would get his head stuck on the side of Mega Man’s stage after using his Green MIssile attack.
This happened in Smash Bros. Brawl too, but I had to share this because Luigi’s body wiggle (and the boing sound effect in the video) is not to be missed. Credit to aaaa_.

PlayStation TV will support almost 700 games when it releases to North America next month ⊟
Remember PlayStation TV, the microconsole that lets you play PS Vita games — along with digital PSP, PlayStation, and PC Engine titles you purchased for the handheld via PSN — on your television? I keep forgetting it’s coming out, but the system releases in North America on October 14 and Europe/Australia on November 14.
Sony put out a list of the nearly 700 games the microconsole will support on day one. Spelunky, Danganronpa, Dragon’s Crown, and Persona 4 Golden are on the list, and Minecraft is also planned for support, so I’m happy.
You can preorder the $99.99 console online now. Sony is also releasing a $139.99 bundle that will include a DualShock 3 controller, an 8GB memory card, and The Lego Movie Videogame. Walmart will have an exclusive bundle with all of that, plus Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, for the same price too.

Clock Tower, Ju-on, Silent Hill talent collaborate on “Project Scissors” ⊟
A new “spiritual successor” to the Clock Tower franchise was announced at TGS. Project Scissors, for Vita, iOS, and Android, features the work of Clock Tower creator Hifumi Kouno and his studio Nude Maker, along with Silent Hill creature designer Masahiro Ito and Ju-on film director Takashi Shimizu, the latter of whom will work on the story and a live-action trailer. Shimizu’s most recent credit is a Kiki’s Delivery Service movie, but, like, that doesn’t add as much horror cache as the Ju-on stuff.

"The game’s setting is a board a luxurious cruise liner in the middle of the ocean . As the ship sails across the deep blue ocean, a series of gruesome and mysterious murders begi ns to take place, including those of the ship’s crew . Soon the ocean liner is crippled and adrift at sea, and has become an inescapable trap for the passengers . As a passenger of the ship, the player will be tasked with solving the murder mystery to ensure their own survival as well as the rest of the ‘innocent’ passengers."

Gonna be spoopy!

Yes, I want to wear Slime underwear ⊟

These are lots of fun, if you idea of of fun is dressing up your bits in Slime faces. I didn’t see any of these available to purchase at any U.S. online retailer (admittedly I spent only 2 minutes of my Sunday looking), but you can get the booty Slime one — it’s separate from boxer briefs with King Slime on the front — at eBay. Shout-outs to Rahenna for the find!

Devil Survivor 2: Break Record out in Japan this January ⊟

Yeah, a trailer for a port of a game that already came out may not seem like a big deal, but… I like this trailer!

The game comes out January 29 in Japan. As for North America and Europe, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

One of the best Smash images is now a shirt ⊟

You can get one of the most compelling Smash Bros. scenes — Mega Man standing on top of a Gogoat as he prepares to swing a Home-run Bat — as a tee, hoodie, sticker, smartphone case, etc. This is all thanks to Sam Smith, who took the original screenshot, created a pixelart version, and uploaded the design to Redbubble.

The Legend of Legacy ⊟
Coming out in Japan this January, this 3DS RPG from publisher FuRyu has… a very silly name, and very elaborate clothing.
Okay, moving on from the teaser art to these scans posted by Gematsu, it also has seven unique characters to choose from, and a “cartograph” gameplay system (basically drawing maps). The in-game character designs are much more Bravely D in proportion.

Monster Hunter 4G has Animal Crossing in it because this is the world we live in now ⊟

Sonic and Taiko Drum Master being in the new Monster Hunter wasn’t enough for you? Here, have Isabelle and Resetti from Animal Crossing: New Leaf because that’s what we do now. That’s what’s going on.

Apparently these are Felyne outfits that will be given out in Japan as part of a 7-11 promotion, according to Japanese 3DS. Who knows how this will be promoted if/when it comes to the West.

Theatre Cat (goodbye)

You know I’m a sucker for poppy chiptunes with vocals, but were you aware that I will also listen to anything about lost cats? Oh God, "Virtute The Cat Explains Her Departure" just slays me.

Anyway, Azuria Sky, posted the above track with this description (lyrics here):

"My cat went missing a few months ago, and I tried to push it aside for a very long time. It’s a silly song, but I almost started crying while writing this. Love you, cat."

Azuria Sky has plenty of lovely songs on her SoundCloud, as well as a few EPs on her BandCamp. The Atlanta-based artist is raising money to buy a better mic and a replacement for her broken headphones — buy a shirt from her Teespring campaign and help her out.
