Here’s why we need another Mega Man cartoon ⊟

Two reasons:

  1. We need more Cut Man shenanigans
  2. 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.

Danganronpa 4-koma comics translated ⊟
I love 4-koma comics for games, like the Hometown Story series Natsume has posted, or these strips from 望月和巨. We usually don’t see them translated (don’t forget to read them right to left!), but Claus is posting these Danganronpa comics on his Tumblr with English text. They’re great if you want to have more time with these characters without having to play through the School Mode.

How does it feel being the new Pokémon Champion? ⊟

16 days, 7 hours, 45 minutes, and 33 seconds later, it’s finally over.. There’s a lot of fanart commemorating the end of Twitch Plays Pokémon, but this one from Kiyokon is my favorite.

Here are more pieces that I saw reblogged on Hatsuu’s Tumblr: Xie, Garmmy, Renee, and Melanie.

Report: Nintendo to offer “mini-games,” videos on smartphones ⊟
A report from Nikkei (a Japanese paper that is often on point about Nintendo rumors) says Nintendo will unveil its concession to the world of smartphones on Thursday, around when the company is expected to hold its quarterly financial results briefing.
No, Nintendo won’t be publishing its marquee games for iPhones, and you shouldn’t sell your 3DS. According to the paper, Nintendo will offer videos and mini-games to help bring awareness to their products.
It’s not quite “Finally Nintendo is making its games for mobile, doing what they obviously should have done years ago to save their company,” which is good, because that approach is about as smart as it sounds when you say it out loud. This strategy sounds more like what The Pokémon Company has done on iOS with its video and mini-game apps. I’m alright with that!
[Update: Nintendo denies Nikkei’s report and says it has “no plans to offer mini-games on smartphone devices.”]
This great comic, by the way comes from Stephen Maurice Graham — lots of great artwork and comics about games on his Tumblr. I like to think that this strip is like the second part of every Iwata comic!

This warrants the return of Iwata Comics ⊟
Last night we learned that the 3DS kicked butt in 2013. Well, not really — we already knew it was kicking butt the whole time, from the release of Fire Emblem: Awakening all the way up until the debut of Sega’s 3D Classics Series games on eShop. The portable outsold all over consoles in the U.S. last year (same is true for Japan).
And then this morning we learned that those sales still weren’t strong enough to prevent Nintendo from cutting its projected numbers for the fiscal year (ending March 2014). The company now expects to sell only 13.5 million 3DS systems worldwide, compared to its initial 18 million forecast. Software sales have also been cut from 80 million to 66 million.
It’s even worse for Wii U — now 2.8 million console sales instead of 9 million, and 19 million game sales instead of 38 million. Ouch.
Despite continued disappointing sales results and annual losses for the company, Nintendo’s CEO and president Satoru Iwata says he does not intend to resign. “There will be no major management shake-up in the short term,” he told reporters today, according to Reuters.

3DS comic by Elizabeth Simins ⊟
Read the full comic, with more family Zelda time and lovingly rendered 3DSes and hands, at bad-at-games. 
Elizabeth has relaunched her comic as a fully Patreon-funded project, “which means it only exists because a bunch of awesome people decided that it’s a project worth paying for.” I’m just going to put her Patreon link right here. In case anyone wants to click on it maybe.

"If I Had More Courage" ⊟
If you’ve played through The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, you should absolutely check out this fan-made comic illustrated by Kitsura/紀貫, reprinted here with his permission. It’s a prequel to the events in A Link Between Worlds, and it’s beautiful, even if you can’t read the Japanese text.
And in case it’s not obvious, the comic after the break (or below, if you’re reading this on a mobile device) has spoilers about a specific character, so go and finish A Link Between Worlds first before going any further.

Make sure to visit Kitsura/紀貫’s pixiv page to see more of his work. He has asked us to emphasize that this fan-made comic is based on a fictional scenario, and that The Legend of Zelda and its characters are copyrighted to Nintendo. I originally spotted this comic on Tobias’ Tumblr.

Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for $34 ⊟
Neat, this is discounted again at Amazon (Frys’ brick and mortar shops have it for $30, too — thanks, @Wario64). Other 3DS games that are $34 right now at Amazon: Pokémon X, Sonic Lost World, and Etrian Odyssey Untold.
This cute comic from Jake “Timecowboy” Lawrence, though, is free. He has lots more adorable Zelda Comix and other strips on his Tumblr.

"Dear Miss Mayor" by Lark

We posted another comic like this when Pokémon XY released, but Lark’s comic is so amazing/heart-breaking we had to revisit the theme again. You need to read the rest of this strip here.

We all knew what we were getting into when we picked up Animal Crossing: New Leaf, that despite our neighbors’ efforts to make best friends out of us, we weren’t permanent additions to the town. Make us mayor if you want, but it won’t keep us here — we’ll eventually wander off to the next distraction, the next video game world, leaving Isabelle to keep the town running.

Even if we ever decide to load up New Leaf again, see how everyone is holding up, it will never be like it once was. You can’t go home again.

Thanks to @nameoftheyear for sending over the link.

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.
