Shadow Triforce shirt idea by Cory Schmitz

The inverted Triforce tee complements his excellent Wisdom, Courage, Power shirt at Attract Mode (bottom image). If you missed the news last week, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will introduce the Shadow Triforce.

I always love Cory’s shirts because they’re rarely gimmicks or mash-ups, just awesome and thoughtful designs.

Reese and Cyrus, by Bee & Puppycat creator Natasha Allegri
I know I’m late to this, but my wife introduced me to Bee & Puppycat's two episodes the other day, and oh my god it is the cutest. Watch it.
You know what’s also super adorable? Re-Tail’s music in Animal Crossing: New Leaf — imagine the sweet melody part as Reese, and the bass as Cyrus, and then them singing/playing together. I soooo love this song now. Thanks to Darling_Shivar for the pro-tip.

Scroll #10 is out, and the covers are gorge

If you backed the Kickstarter for this zine issue, you probably already knew this was out, and got the special edition/fishing cover. The rest of you plebes can now buy Scroll #10 online as a PDF ($5) or print magazine ($14) with the standard bug net cover — both of the wistful designs are from Jacob Smiley.

As mentioned previously, this 60-page issue primarily examines charming cult game series Boku no Natsuyasumi/My Summer Vacation, and includes a rare profile/interview with the franchise’s creator Kaz Ayabe. It also looks at Ayabe’s newest game, upcoming eShop title Attack of the Friday Monsters, along with other topics.

Pond Smelt: Animal Crossing doujinshi from Jane Mai

Awesome artist Jane Mai has a very promising “Animal Crossy" book on the way, if you’re into imagining lives and experiences with your New Leaf neighbors beyond the confines of the game’s scripted dialogue.

It’s published by Peow Studio and will ship early July. You can preorder Pond Smelt online for 100 Swedish krona, which I’m told is around $15 (shipping worldwide included) — expensive, but I can already tell from these preview pages that this book right here, right now, right here, this is my shit. Plus it comes with a “special surprise present.”

You can also check out some of Jane’s comics online for free here, and buy more of her excellent zines here.

Oh, and have I mentioned yet that wolves (especially those that are named Fang) are the best Animal Crossing neighbors?

Wonderful Dragon Quest fanart by Zac Gorman
This will be featured at iam8bit’s gallery show opening tomorrow in Los Angeles! More than 80 artists have provided pieces for the exhibit, which is nuts.
Square Enix has put out a list detailing a portion of the games it will show at E3 next week, but the tally doesn’t include any of Wii U or 3DS’s Dragon Quest games — there’s not even a mention of Bravely Default, though that may be because Nintendo is publishing it in the U.S. I’ll be very disappointed if we don’t hear anything about Dragon Quest X, Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry’s Wonderland 3D, Slime MoriMori Dragon Quest 3, or Dragon Quest VII.

Buy these zines if you are a cool person

Cool people — or as I like to call you, Tiny Cartridge followers — these are both releases you should be interested in:

If you have your own zine or something else awesome in the works, let us know and we’ll promote it on our Upcoming Releases page (if it’s awesome/relevant).

Where are you, b-b-buddy?
Just one more week left until you can restart that cycle of moving to a new town, settling into a home of your own, making new friends, and eventually leaving it all behind you without a warning.
This comic is another piece originally submitted to but not included in Animal Cosszine, illustrated by Mathew New. There’s now a limited supply of Animal Crosszine print copies available or sale, by the way! Digital copies are still $5 too.

Tom Nook started from the bottom…
Now the guy’s charging a ton for you to live here. He doesn’t even run the general/convenience store in Animal Crossing: New Leaf anymore — Tom lets his nephews manage that while he oversees most of the town’s construction work. Pretty sure both of these businesses are money laundering operations.
Anyway, this pixelart comes from Mae. The piece didn’t make it into Animal Crosszine, but I think it’s awesome so I’m featuring it here. She has some nice photos and art on her blog, if you’re into following people on Tumblr with nice photos and art.

Animal Crossing's Rover on edge
This is the just the first part from Dan Zazzera’s three-page “Restless Rover” comic, which takes you through the anxieties and internal chastisement the cat suffers whenever he meets a new Animal Crossing player.
The comic is featured in the recently published and shipped Animal Crosszine. You can buy a digital copy right now, and physical editions will probably be available for sale again next week.
