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.

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.

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.

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.

Marth looks different… ⊟
This mysterious pink puffball in the mask… could it really be the legendary hero Marth? But… isn’t that also Marth standing next to him? Gods, I’m so confused! The image are via these Famitsu scans. Note the lack of visible feet!
Okay, that’s a lot of Marth. I can’t account for the mystery pink Marth, but Lucina seems to be somewhat clone-like in play compared to OG Marth, which Masahiro Sakurai explains in this translated column:

"Lucina uses the same techniques as Marth, a fighter with whom I’m sure most of you are already familiar. I even went so far as to make their strength, speed, and special attacks almost identical.
However, what sets Lucina apart is the fact that the strength of her attacks is uniform along the blade. Marth’s playstyle emulates the elegant swordplay of a fencer by dealing more damage when he strikes with the tip of his blade, but the damage Lucina deals is evened out. Thus, I think Lucina will be much easier than Marth for novice players to play with.”

He says tweaked characters like that play differently enough to earn their own slot, unlike simple alternate costumes like Wii Fit trainer. “When two such similar characters function in an even slightly different manner, I give them a separate spot on the roster since that will affect battle records and whatnot.”

Senran Kagura producer Kenichiro Takaki muses about Life ⊟
The screencap comes from this… let’s call it NSFW video. It’s pretty reprehensible, but at the same time I think it’s hilarious that so many people put so much work into such a terrible joke?

Club Nintendo’s platinum/gold prizes are game downloads ⊟

Yeah, this year’s Elite gifts from North American Club Nintendo are not exclusive physical goods like they were in previous years – Mario hats, figurines, etc. They’re not even the old standby calendar. 

Instead, this year you can select one of 16 Wii U or 3DS games as a free download, ranging from full retail games (like Game & Wario) to fucking Ice Climber.

Club Nintendo has gone down while I was writing this post, but you can get the reward here when it comes back up. Though I like my Club Nintendo Mario hat and all, I’m not hating on a free copy of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.

Yumi’s Odd Odyssey now $20 ⊟

Not a sale, not a promo – Yumi’s Odd Odyssey, the localized version of Sayonara Umihara Kawase, has had a permanent price drop as of yesterday, to $19.99 on the eShop.

I never properly reviewed it, but I like it a lot, and $20 is an even more appealing price for it! And, uh, I should get back to that now that I’m sorta between games. I suspect a lot of people are between games just at the moment.

The women of Smash ⊟
The original Smash Bros. had a single playable female character with Samus, while Melee and Brawl had three to six, depending on how you look at them (Samus/Zero Suit Samus, Peach, Nana, and Zelda/Sheik). Meanwhile, the new Smash Bros. has 12 (out of 40 characters, including those with female/male options)!
Sure, a few are based on the same character now split into two separate fighters (Zelda/Sheik and Samus/Zero Suit Samus), and four have male counterparts (Villager, Wii Fit Trainer, Robin, and Mii), but that’s still a lot more options for people who prefer to play as female characters!
And there might be even more female fighters revealed soon, as we don’t have the full roster. Japanese magazine CoroCoro will reportedly show all of the characters and stages planned for the 3DS version in its August 12 issue. Thanks to Regina for the pic, and Stef for pointing out the new Smash Bros.'s dramatic increase in women.

Lucina’s boot game is too strong, OP even — Sakurai might need to put out a post-release patch and nerf her footwear back into those nubs everyone has in Fire Emblem Awakening. Credit to @Pikminister for noticing this!
