Tiny Cartridge 3DS

Shigesato Itoi + Satoru Iwata
I know that a number of you have crushes on these middle-aged Japanese men, so I’m sure you’re squealing over this photo of them together, thumbs barely touching, two hearts becoming one.
Mother 2 releases on Japan’s Wii U Virtual Console this week, which means we get this great photo of Nintendo’s boss and Mother's creator introducing a conversation between the two today (hoping for a translation soon).
Wii U’s Miiverse has also kicked off a special Mother 2 community that’s filled with Western fans begging for a Virtual Console release outside of Japan, and endearing comments from Itoi like these:

"Ahh Ahh Can you hear me? This is Shigesato Itoi. Please give me something. Please give me Test Test"
"I’m about to eat a banana that’s been sitting in 50 degree celsius water for 15 minutes straight. ….Yum! Mother 2 is nice, but so is this banana.”

On a related note, awesome Japanese design site PingMag is back — here’s a great interview they had with Itoi about advertising and t-shirts from seven years ago.
