Atonement ⊟

In case you were wondering how the Duck Hunt dog and his partner — once presumed enemies — became so close, John Pading delivers a comic to explain it all. Follow his Tumblr for more rad video game comics!

Speaking of these two animal friends, PRguitarman has shared these amusing screenshots of the duo in Smash Bros. Much like Megane Bowser’s existence, the Duck Hunt pair’s presence in Smash Bros. will never get old for me.

Lovely Pikachu comic from Tiffany Ford ⊟

Along with making comics that break my heart, Tiffany works on Steven Universe, which is amazing and coming back soon and I wish there was a non-shady link to the full “Tiger Millionaire” episode I could share with you. You can follow Tiffany’s Tumblr here.

Time to buy Remake ⊟

Remake, the fun Mega Man-esque comic series from Steven Universe storyboarder Lamar Abrams, is on sale right now! You can get Remake, Remake Special, Remake 3xtra, and other AdHouse books for half off until May 25 (or while supplies last).

You can check out PDF previews for each of the books so you can realize this is exactly what you need in your life: Remake ($6.50), Remake Special ($5), and Remake 3xtra ($5).

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.
