How awesome is this Captain Toad GIF ⊟
It’s from Paul Robertson, the GIF/pixel-master whose work we’ve extolled in Mercenary Kings, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game, and other fine titles with impressive sprite animations.
I don’t know why we don’t have a million posts about Captain Toad; it was easily the Wii U game I was most excited about at E3. It’s not slated to come out until the holiday season, but I’m contemplating putting in my preorder now.
PREORDER Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, upcoming games
Sleepy Smash Bros., Animal Crossing emotions ⊟
l love both of these cute pieces! Illustrator Fuu will bring both posters to Anime Expo 2014, and intends to sell them online afterwards.
Dream Zine up for sale ⊟
In case you were anywhere else on Earth during TCAF, you can now get the adorable Kirby’s Dream Zine, curated by Ashley Davis, from Fangamer. It’s 88 pages of cute, drawn by a bunch of Kirb-lovin’ artists.
How good is this thing? Well, there’s a pretty cool Dream Zine Tumblr – all the art here didn’t make it into the book. So I’m guessing the book is pretty dang spectacular.
For more on the Dream Zine (and Kirby), listen to our TinyCast with Ashley!
And here are Urkel, Spelunky dude, Daria, Phoenix Wright, Charlie Brown, and more as Taito characters ⊟
Here are the folks announced for the new Smash Bros. so far ⊟
The top image contains the new Smash Bros. game’s Assist Trophies (here’s a version with the Metroid shown this morning), while the other pic shows the playable characters with their ancillary buddies, like Olimar with his Pikmin. Both are from Neorice, who is on Tumblr so you should follow him.
Don’t forget that there will be a Nintendo Direct dedicated to the 3DS/Wii U game tomorrow, streaming at 6PM ET (12AM EU time) — we’ll probably see one or two new faces to add to the roster!
Here’s why we need another Mega Man cartoon ⊟
- We need more Cut Man shenanigans
- We need Lamar Abrams to work on the show, so he can incorporate these character designs he just posted (he has one for Roll, too!)
Since that’s probably not going to happen, I’ll settle for buying copies of Remake and watching the cartoon that Abrams is already contributing to, Steven Universe.

Club Tiny mystery gift pack incoming! ⊟
Last week, we introduced Club Tiny as a way for readers to support our work with a monthly pledge at Patreon. Whether you join or not, Tiny Cartridge will remain as awesome as it’s always been for free — even awesomer, actually, thanks to the extra attention we can now give the site — but Club Tiny members will receive fun bonuses for their patronage.
We’re preparing a great set of gifts we’ll deploy to our Ambassador-level members and up ($3+) this week — we’re really excited about having the chance to share these tiny rewards. If you want to get in on the fun, make sure to join soon! And if you’ve already joined and signed up to send a mystery gift to a friend, make sure to check our Activity Feed at Patreon for details on sending us their names/emails.
Thank you all again for the generosity and support you’ve shown us so far, helping us reach our Patreon goals and spread the word. I can’t believe how much you’ve pledged already. You are the best. It would require ten thousand posts for us to come close to expressing our gratitude, but we’re trying hard not to spam the site with Patreon-related articles and our excitement.

My WarioWare Life: Four years of video game snapshots ⊟
Duncan Robson’s journal documents the most interesting events in his life (attending conferences, moving across the Atlantic Ocean) as well as his day-to-day existence (going to the dentist, walking a dog). Here’s an entry from January 2013, about finding money on the street, for example.
Gravity Rush holiday card by Kyle Fewell ⊟
So happy to have an excuse to post some Gravity Rush/Kat art here. This is one of several holiday cards Attract Mode will be selling at the Bit Bazaar Winter Market, a “unique celebration of the art and craft of indie games, web comics, and good food,” going down at Toronto’s Bento Miso this Saturday. Why does everything awesome only happen in NYC, California, and Toronto?
Really digging this Dual Blade comic and art ⊟
It’s not an actual comic outside of what you see here and this other awesome sketch, but I’m totally into this world that Giannis Milonogiannis has created where kids roll around with 3DSes strapped to their wrists Yu-Gi-Oh-style, summoning blades from the handheld and challenging bullies. That look probably wouldn’t translate well to real life, though.
Perfect-Dodge Peasant Lady from Dragon’s Crown
She’s probably the biggest badass in the game — the kid walking around with the bottle doesn’t take any hits either, but he doesn’t have a pot on his head. Meanwhile, the dude with the apples is quick to snitch to 5-0 if you bump him. Imma catch up to him later.
The artist behind this, DashXero, has more Dragon’s Crown art you can check out on his Tumblr.
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.
