eShop’s spoopy Halloween makeover ⊟
I just logged onto the eShop to download Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies (I don’t have time to play it right now and I do not care), and I noticed this great Halloweening of the page.
Someone at NOA actually made new art for every single eShop category, for both the main image and the little touchscreen icon, and changed the names of the categories to spooky puns.
Just wanted to give this adorable, and fully unnecessary, move a shoutout. Nintendo employee: I noticed.

It’s a Boohemoth! Like one of those big Boos, but a little different from what we first saw in Super Mario World.
If you skip to 00:20 in this New Super Mario Bros. 2 clip, you’ll see the Boohemoth doing the standard hiding-behind-its-hands bit when you’re looking at the ghost — albeit with tennis balls stuffed in its cheeks, and its tongue waggling like crazy — except now it peeks at you after a few seconds, then starts to creep toward you anyway.
The team behind New Super Mario Bros. 2 discusses this addition and other new stuff in the game — like the Sonic the Hedgehog-esque “Dash Mario” run-through shown at 00:35 — in the latest edition of Iwata Asks.
