Tiny Cartridge 3DS

Dat HuCard card case ⊟
I’m not familiar with the manga High Score Girl, and I have no way of getting a Japanese crane game prize, and I have no need to carry business cards right now – man, these are some pretty good reasons not to be interested in these.
But wow, that sure is a card case that looks like a PC Engine/Turbografx-16 HuCard! That would be such a fresh look for my business cards that I don’t even have anymore. It would be hard to part with the Spelunker case. Maybe I’d have to pick the accessory for each situation. Via Miki800.

Project X Zone discounted to $29.99 at Amazon
That’s something like 15 cents for each character in this Sega x Capcom x Namco Bandai game. And 5 cents per fan service scene like this Jill sandwich convo (Credit to Satoshi Mochida for the pic).

LOL Mega Man fans :o(
Related: Capcom doesn’t deserve Mega Man. Maybe I’ll have to pick up Project X Zone for more scenes like this.

Project X Zone launch trailer for today’s release

Amazingly, there are other games besides Animal Crossing: New Leaf that are still being released — games in which characters spend their time punching people in the face and shooting guns at each other, instead of collecting furniture and catching bugs. One of those games is Project X Zone, the RPG/crossover game featuring dudes from Sega, Namco Bandai, and Capcom (not Nintendo).

I am sure this is a fun game. I’m just not sure if my 3DS is capable of playing anything besides New Leaf right now. I tried to make time to open Swapnote the other night, but before I knew what was going on, I found myself roaming around my Animal Crossing town and hitting rocks with a shovel.

Super cute Monster Hunter 4 figures

Fans in Japan will be able to win these Banpresto-made figures by picking up tickets at their local 7-11 next March. The adorable Felyne Tank might be the coolest toy vehicle since the TMNT Pizza Launcher — though it doesn’t quite match that toy’s brilliance because it fails to shoot pizzas.

North America will be a Project X Zone

Project X Zone, the tactical RPG featuring a massive crossover cast of characters from Sega, Capcom, and Namco Bandai franchises, will make it to the West this summer!

Wow, I didn’t expect that at all! At least we’ll be getting some new Mega Man on the 3DS in some form, if not on Legends 3. This will hit North America, Europe, and Australasia with its Japanese voices intact, though apparently publisher Namco Bandai will forego localizing the audio, saving some money with that decision.

Holy crap, this DS game is amazing

Released in Japan a few years ago and inspired by a popular manga/anime, Kochira Katsushikaku Kameari Kouenmae Hashutsujo features all sorts of fun minigames like: dog breakdancing, Super Mario Bros. 3-style face matching, and some kind of crying/ballet dancing activity. I need to import this.

Limited edition 3DS XL for Super Robot Wars UX

More nice things we can’t have! This one is for the latest entry to Namco Bandai’s niche tactical RPG series. These crossover games rarely make it out of Japan due to their plethora of featured mechas from different anime franchises.

Here’s a trailer for Super Robot Wars UX that features a bunch of special attacks (one of the series’ primary attractions) — at the 2:05 mark, there’s a… Hatsune Miku mecha. 

BUY Super Robot Wars/Taisen games

While there’s doubt that Project X Zone will make it to the West, most of what I’m interested about in this Super Robot Wars-style mash-up between Sega, Namco Bandai, and Capcom is in this video anyway: lots of familiar characters pulling of ridiculous combos on dudes.

PlayStation business card case by Banpresto. These super nerdy card cases aren’t available domestically yet, but Japanese retailer Nigishow appears to be connected to Strapya. (Plus there’s a Strapya business card in one of the pictures!) 

That gives some hope that you’ll be able to import a case (in matte or shiny aluminum) soon, and pretend your business cards are printed on copies of 2Xtreme.

Super Robot Wars J translation released

Did you know that every time a Super Robot Wars translation patch is completed, a Gundam gets its Wing? It’s true, just like all the other lies that grace this page.

Romhacking Aerie, which also helped translate Tales of Innocence in June, has released an English patch for Super Robot Wars J, which was never going to come out in the States for a number of reasons:

  • It released in Japan way back in 2005, which seems like a century ago in internet/gaming years
  • It’s a GBA title — you might have noticed that publishers haven’t localized many of these lately
  • All the licenses would be a nightmare to negotiate for anyone who’d try to release it in the States
