Subtitled trailer for the new Fatal Frame ⊟

Cheers to PepsimanGB for subtitling the trailer Tecmo Koei put out last week for Fatal Frame: The Raven-Haired Shrine Maiden. I was one of the people who asked for subtitles when he offered to put this video together, so it would’ve been a jerk move if I didn’t share this after he went through all that trouble.

Again, this releases for the Wii U in Japan on September 27.

GTD with Isabelle ⊟

I love these Isabelle/Animal Crossing-themed to-do lists from IkaBoushi. Reese is also there, in case you need to clean out your house (something I’ve been doing a lot of lately!) For $3.50 (before shipping and handling), you can get 12 Isabelles, 12 Reeses, or 6 of each.

Super Famicom pouches for PS Vita 2000 ⊟

So far, they’re only on Amazon Japan (via Miki800); hopefully they’ll end up on Play-Asia soon for accessibility. While it might seem weird to have cross-retro-pollination with a Nintendo theme on a Sony console accessory, back around the Super Famicom days they almost became the same thing

Sakurai finally cracked ⊟
Crushed under the weight of endless demands that he include Goku in the new Smash Bros., series director Masahiro Sakurai threw in the Saiyan just to make everyone shut-up about it. In a follow-up Miiverse comment, he added, “And if you kids keep pestering me about SpongeBob and Ridley, so help me god, I am canceling the entire thing.”*
*None of this is actually true — the pic comes from Nentendo, via Nadia Oxford. Here’s today’s real daily Smash Bros. update, which is a neat life drain attack for Robin.

Get out of my dreams, get into my Fennecar ⊟

Toyopet vehicles shown by Toyota at the Tokyo Toy Show. Really cute, though I don’t know how effective Pikachu’s lil’ snout is as a bumper.

Chie, Gizmo, Judge Judy, Picard, and others as Taito sprites ⊟

Another 100 sprites, done up in Taito’s old arcade style, by pixel warlock Paul Robertson — see his previous 200 sprites here and here.

Please give me a Taito game starring Beavis and Butthead, Reginald and Beartato, and No Face and Zeniba.

New Mighty No. 9 footage ⊟

There’s a bit of old clips in here, but you’ll see a lot of new video in here too, showing off Call and the game’s bosses. While it still looks really unfinished and without the polish (the stage shown with Call looks super basic with only placeholder art), Comcept and Inti Creates still have a long way to go — around 9 months — before this releases.

Love Hz • Pop Ramen

Pop Ramen is the new album by Love Hz, a supergroup made up of Austin bands Chalkboards and hashtagyoloswag. With its combination of chip melodies and live guitar/drums/ukulele(?), this is an Album for JC.

Fun fact about me: I need a constant supply of upbeat melodic pop-rock or I will die.

Etrian Odyssey IV Imperial figure ⊟

By Kotobukiya, shipping in November for 5184 yen ($50ish). This is really nice and detailed, and makes me realize that the chibi-esque character art in the games has a lot more going on than I notice… Via Siliconera.

R.I.P Comic Workshop screenshot sharing on Miiverse, Manga-ka Guild ⊟
Just a day after Comic Workshop released to the eShop, tensions are high in the app’s Miiverse community, where Nintendo disabled the feature allowing users to post and share comics they’ve made in the app.
Comic Workshop has its own dedicated site where users can share, rate, and comment on each others’ creations — similar to how Flipnote used to work — but the English version hasn’t launched yet, so Miiverse was the best and easiest way for people to show off their work with a community.
It’s not clear why the feature was disabled so quickly, but many Miiverse commenters presume its because certain members were taking advantage of the app’s camera features to post photos of themselves in their comics. Shadow847 seems to think that this is all Douglas’s fault.
Comic Workshop sounded promising, but now some are pledging to not buy it due to this change. :o( Little apps like these need all the sales they can get.

Cute Mario Kart racer GIFs ⊟

Here’s a non-animated Koopa one, too. These are all courtesy of Paper Beats Scissors, which post a lot of great comics and adorable video game tribute GIFs/sketches — very much worth a follow!

If you open up a bunch of browser windows and load one of these GIFs in each, you can line them up and move them around, pretending their racing and passing each other while making your own sound effects. Great way to spend your afternoon, or get fired after you’re caught goofing off at work.

Gunvolt out August 20 in Japan ⊟

Woo! Azure Striker Gunvolt, the 3DS action game by Inti Creates, will release to Japan’s eShop on August 20 for ¥1960 yen (about $20) — no release date for the West yet other than “Summer”. I did not realize it was that close to being finished. I guess I imagined an extended Mighty No. 9 type situation.
