Three Little Monster Hunters ⊟
I love that this is how Capcom is advertising Monster Hunter 4. Just put some animal masks on, whatever! It’s a really funny ad despite, or maybe because of, its low-budgetness.
Why is Capcom even doing commercials for this game anyway? Is there someone in Japan who doesn’t know about Monster Hunter?

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate hits U.S. in 2015 ⊟
Out of nowhere, Capcom announced today that 3DS-exclusive Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will release to Japan in fall 2014 and Western countries early next year. Yessssss.
As fun as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate was, it’s going to be great to have a 3DS entry for the series with online multiplayer. You can watch a Japanese gameplay trailer for MH4U here.
Ace Attorney 123's boxart, charms tho ⊟
When people in Japan preorder Ace Attorney 123: Wright Selection from the E-Capcom shop, they’ll not only get the standard bonuses (desktop wallpaper and a remixed music track), they will receive a cute 7cm charm randomly selected from a set of three.
Official Ace Attorney 3DS XL cover ⊟
Capcom Japan did use a similar design for a 3DS pouch, but a $20 case is a lot easier to swing than a 3DS game limited edition set, especially across regions! So will you take the case, hurr hurr?
Some thoughts about Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies ⊟
As I neared the final case of Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, I was certain it was not only my least favorite game of the series, but the worst game. After completing the thrilling final case and experiencing the story as a whole, I no longer think it’s my least favorite story, though there’s no doubt in my mind it’s the worst in terms of gameplay.
Rather than connect all the thoughts swimming around in my head into some kind of coherent opinion, I thought I’d just… list them, or something.
eShop deals: SteamWorld Dig, Street Fighter IV 3D ⊟
More eShop sales that are totally contingent upon the eShop working! Through January 2, SteamWorld Dig is $6.99, down from $8.99. And Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, the first 3DS game Eric and I played together online back in small times – we were but children, Hundred Hand Slapping one another! – is just ten bucks!
BUY Nintendo 2DS & 3DS/XL, upcoming games
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (3DS) for $19.99 ⊟
Not a bad Amazon deal! With the money you save, you can buy a hunting guide over at Culty. The guys up in sales are also strongly urging me to mention that you can get free two-day shipping on the game by signing up for an Amazon Prime trial. [Update: MonHun deal is dead :o( .]

Mega Man X, Mega Man (GB) $2 each on eShop ⊟
Yay, another odd promotion on eShop — Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge (GB) for 3DS and Mega Man X (SNES) for Wii U, both discounted to $2 until Wednesday.
Happy Holidays from Amaterasu ⊟
Capybara artist and animator Kelly Smith offers up one last holiday card from Attract Mode’s Bit Bazaar: Winter Market pack, and it’s a great Okami tribute.
Bit Bazaar: Winter Market is going on right now in Toronto! If you hurry to Bento Miso, you might still be able to make it before the event closes (7PM) and grab some of these cards! You’ll also see some killer zines, games, snacks, comics, and more.
Fire Emblem X Monster Hunter Frontier-G ⊟
The Wii U version of Monster Hunter Frontier-G offers some incentive to check out a second-tier Monhun, in the form of Fire Emblem: Awakening crossover weapons and costumes. Both gunners and swordsmen can wear the Chrom or Lucina armors. Gunners have access to two bows, and sword users can wield a Falchion or Parallel Falchion.
I can only assume that you have to kill and skin a few dozen Chroms to get the armor.
Dude’s shoulder game is unreal ⊟
Doesn’t even have to tap a button to switch calls; he just leans his head to one side to pick up another one. Need to talk to two people at the same time? You can keep your conference calls; all he’s gotta do is shrug. He must be calculating his monthly bills in that planner, what with his two phone plans, and the fines he’s racking up from ballin’ so hard.
This is from Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, by the way, and the photo comes from Rise Above the Cilantro.
