Yes of course you want to see a trailer for Mega Slowbro ⊟

It gets its power from being slowly eaten. Its Mega Evolution makes the parasite Shellder eating it only more powerful. And somehow it’s cute as heck. Pokemon is for the children.

Forbidden Magna is looking alright ⊟

At least better than it did when I last saw the game on a Nintendo Direct months ago. ICYMI, this is the action RPG/sim that has you running an inn, and is the latest from a number of people who worked on the Rune Factory series before the Neverland studio shut down.

Forbidden Magna releases in Japan on October 2.

Let’s learn about Harvest Moon's cute animals ⊟

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley introduces new “traits” for its farm animals, which affect their stats. Here are some examples released by Natsume:

Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall – This season is the animal’s favorite! Their affection level will go up faster in that season.

Elegant – These animals really, really hate being dirty! You’ll get a big affection bonus when you brush them. The higher an animal’s affection, the higher quality products they’ll produce, as well as a higher quantity of that product!

It’s possible to breed these traits into future generations, or create more beneficial traits through breeding:

Great Goods becomes High-Quality Goods: These animals have a strong and powerful body! Because of that, they will sometimes produce higher-quality products.

More Goods becomes Super Goods: These animals are gifted with fantastic health! Because of that, they will sometimes produce a higher quantity of products.

They all come with “really frickin’ cute” by default.

Gunvolt out August 29 in US ⊟
Inti Creates’ debut self-published game, Azure Striker Gunvolt, will be released in North America on August 29 for $15. Big day for 3DS releases, suddenly, with that and Layton vs. Phoenix Wright!
I mean, those two things can coexist just fine.

Super Smash Bros. 3DS borrows difficulty system from Kid Icarus: Uprising ⊟

The “Fiend’s Cauldron” was one of the coolest things about Kid Icarus: Uprising (screenshot on the right), a dynamic difficulty system that let you fine tune exactly how tough you wanted each stage to be – with greater rewards for success, and greater losses of in-game currency for failure. The scaling difficulty really worked, and it was exciting. And now it’s back for Smash Bros.’ single-player mode!

This kind of weird stuff is why I love Sakurai games. Nobody else would dare take a whole mechanic directly from his last game – a game that didn’t really perform all that well and didn’t get much attention – and graft it wholesale onto a AAA holiday release.

Limited Edition Smash Bros. 3DS XL unveiled ⊟

So far it’s only announced for Europe, but I would be surprised if Nintendo of America didn’t support such a big release with special edition hardware in the States. This bundle, which includes a pre-installed digital copy of Smash Bros., will launch alongside the 3DS game in Europe on October 3.

The company also announced Meta Knight will return as a playable fighter.

Hey, guys, did you hear? Mega Slowbro ⊟
I neglected to mention Mega Slowbro’s existence this morning, and now Patricia Hernandez and every other Poké person has put up much better posts than I can hope to make. So, let’s just get it over with. Here’s Mega Slowbro. The creature popped up on the official Korean Pokémon website (along with Mega Audino) this morning. Its special ability is “Shell Armor.”
Serebii offers these details:

"It has boosted Defense and Special Attack. Energy was focused in the Shellder biting Slowbro’s tail, and the result was that the hardness of the shell increased and it became an immensely hard suit of armor that can be damaged by no one. When the battle begins Mega Slowbro uses its tail to stand up straight and it propels itself like a spring."

Mega Slowbro is super cute and super pitiful, and this Mega evolution solidifies his status as Pokémon’s Ralph Wiggum. Look at the poor fool. It can barely move in that thing. Credit to Ferrari94 for the GIF.

New look at Renegade Kid’s Xeodrifter ⊟

Man, the more I see of this tiny Metroidvania, the more I want to play it! Today, Renegade Kid showed off a couple more screens, featuring a blurry look at the bottom screen interface and a shot of the little dude firing upward.

But what really got me intrigued is the music sample by Roth Sothy. I am definitely into playing a game with this BGM running behind it.

Let’s listen to the Etrian Odyssey 2 remake’s music ⊟

With the launch of New Etrian Odyssey 2: Knight of Fafnir's official Japanese website, Atlus has put out two soundtrack samples from the 3DS game. The series’ music has always been a highlight, what with legendary composer Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage, Ys) on deck.

I believe one of the samples, what you hear above, is an orchestral remix from the original DS game — if this is anything like Etrian Odyssey Untold, Knights of Fafnir will feature a Classic Mode with the FM synth music many love from the series. You can also hear the soundtrack sample for the battle music here.

There’s no word yet on a Western release, but I don’t think anyone is expecting this to stay in Japan.

More Megas, cosplay Pikachu in new Alpha/Omega trailer ⊟

We knew about Mega Salamence, Mega Lopunny, and Mega Altaria a couple days ago already thanks to news published in Japan, but you can see them in action, along with dress-up Pikachu, in this clip.

The Pokémon Company has also announced that players will get a Shiny Beldum holding a Metagrossite Mega Stone when the games launch on November 21 — the creature will evolve into Shiny Metang and then into Shiny Metagross. Using the Stone, you can then evolve it to Shiny Mega Metagross.

Loved these reactions to Smash's Game Boy stage ⊟

They’re all cute sketches from a Miiverse thread yesterday, when series director Masahiro Sakurai announced that the new Smash Bros. will feature a Game Boy stage. ♪Ba-ding!♪

Smash Bros. will have a Game Boy stage ⊟
So many neat things announced for the new Smash Bros. lately! So far all we’ve seen of the pea green stage is this screen, but series director Masahiro Sakurai noted:

"If you turn on the 3D effect, it really looks like there’s a Game Boy inside the screen."

This is perfect, what with the portable celebrating its 25th birthday this year. That said, I can’t believe PictoChat was featured as a Smash Bros. stage before the Game Boy.
