Crocheted Beemo with interchangeable game screens by Hookrat. I love those insertable cards — there’s one for Conversation Parade (my favorite!), the Abraham Lincoln fighting game, and the Space Invaders-style shooter.
Hookrat hasn’t completed this project, hence the missing buttons and limbs, but I can already tell this is something I need in my life. Beemo is like the perfect handheld; I hear it doesn’t even have region-locking or a friend codes.
Speaking of Adventure Time, I saw the best link ever yesterday: Rhombus TV, a streamlined site hosting every episode from the show’s two seasons! It’s totally not sanctioned by Cartoon Network, and it doesn’t work for everyone (JC wasn’t able to load it), but if the site stays up and loads in your browser, you’re in for a treat!

Ni no Kuni amigurumi: Shuzuku, the tear fairy that accompanies you in the upcoming Level-5/Studio Ghibli RPG, crocheted by Suravi (click for a larger image).
The game isn’t releasing in Japan for DS until this December (and for PS3 some time next year), but people are already making crafts based on its characters!
Level-5 can’t wait for the holidays to release Ni no Kuni either, as it’s already started putting out commercials in Japan. Check out these two spots it’s airing:
The first ad says, “This winter’s ultimate fantasy, from a dream staff,” while the second commercial boldly states, “The game you’re all looking forward to, Ni no Kuni, is the first game to come with a book of magic. We’ve been receiving a rush of inquiries, so you should quickly pre-order,” according to Andriasang.

Blue and red Octorok amigurumi by Mindy Y. I love the “rocks” of yarn you can stuff into its mouth and pretend to shoot at a Link amigurumi doll. You can buy the red Octorok from Mindy’s Etsy shop for $18.
In related news, Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata (of President Iwata Comics fame) mentioned in an interview yesterday that a new Legend of Zelda game will likely release for Wii at the end of 2010, and that a Nintendo DS successor with “highly detailed graphics” and motion controls is in the works. I guess that’s all interesting, but I couldn’t motivate myself to give these predictable and non-concrete promises their own post.

Mario, Goomba, and KURIBO’S SHOE amigurumi by Flickr user anenemyairship. While Mario crafts are commonplace enough, there is a shocking lack of homemade Mario tributes featuring the greatest item of all time, the giant damn boot from Super Mario Bros. 3.
There’s basically no way it’s going to be, but can you fucking imagine if Kuribo’s Shoe were to show up in New Super Mario Bros. Wii? All fighting with three friends over the right to inhabit the shoe? Man, I’m going to have to buy this game just in case.

Crocheted Tanooki Mario (with a leaf power-up pin!), Luigi, and Princess Peach by Michelle Rheaume.
You can purchase one of these cute toys, as well as patterns to make your own, from Michelle’s Etsy site.
