3D printed 3DS/DS game holder ⊟

It’s a simple item, but I could see something like this being nice on a desk or nightstand, for quick access to favorite games. Or, like, if you built a gun that shot DS carts or something. It’s $8 from Nerdstuffz.

Handheld gaming pioneer retires from Nintendo ⊟

Like me, you probably weren’t familiar with Satoru Okada until today, but his contributions to our portable gaming hobby are immeasurable. He frequently collaborated with fellow legendary developer Gunpei Yokoi, helping create the Game & Watch and Game Boy. Okada also went on to work on the many iterations of the Game Boy, GBA, DS, and presumably 3DS.

Along with his hardware work as General Manager at Nintendo’s Research & Engineering department, Okada directed a number of classic NES titles like Metroid, Kid Icarus, Super Mario Land, Balloon Fight, Duck Hunt, and Famicom Wars (Advance Wars). After more than 40 years at the company and a career that almost any other developer would be jealous of, he has retired.

Shout-out to Per Erik Voskuil for the initial report — he’s the author of upcoming book Before Mario, based on his blog that digs up Nintendo’s curious works before the company became a household name with the NES. Check out the book here. Credit also to Dadot, who created the handheld gaming tribute video that the above GIFs were taken from.

[Update: Erik points out that Okada actually retired a while ago! Still, it was worth taking a moment recognizing this crucial but often forgotten figure from portable gaming’s history.]

Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Signature: The Game ⊟

Duncan Robson, creator of the Microcartridge series of personal snapshot games in WarioWare DIY, made this one about, and during, a Seconds signing event with author Bryan Lee O’Malley.

The signature was actually done by O’Malley at the event! So by playing this microgame, Duncan is signing his authentic autograph. I love this.

By the way, if you haven’t read it, you can learn more about Duncan and the Microcartridge project in our feature. :)

PSA: get Go! Go! Kokopolo before it’s too late ⊟

A very cool DSiWare game is disappearing at the end of this month. Go! Go! Kokopolo is a cute maze action game starring a cat who lures enemies through mazes by enraging them with scratches and then leading them into the mouth of a giant plant. It’s loaded with vibrant, cartoony art. Oh, and speaking of which, look at the amazing TC art made around the launch of the game!

Not sure why it’s being delisted – or what the status is of the 3DS sequel. But if you want to check out the original game, do so before August 31! Thanks to GSK for the heads up.

Jeezy Creezy, that’s a lot of DS/3DS cartridges ⊟
HxCurt claims it’s 1,200 lbs of tiny cartridges, which seems like an exaggeration, but this is the closest I’ve ever seen to 1,200 lbs of DS/3DS games so who knows. It’s not exactly the sort of hoard you’d want for your collection, though, seeing as half of them appear to be copies of iCarly 2, and the other half is made up of Dreamworks Kart, Rabbids: Travel in Time 3D, Wappy Dog, Gourmet Chef, and other junk.

The Retro Game Challenge 2 fan translation has arrived ⊟

By God, they’ve done it. The fan translation team led by Aaron Chmielowiec has released the first version of its Game Center CX 2/Retro Game Challenge 2 patch.

This thing looks hella professional! All the text and graphics have been changed. What an impressive effort for a game that, by all accounts, deserves this kind of love. I’m finally going to play those adventure games… my copy of the game is forever stopped there.

Nintendo WiFi Connection not quite dead ⊟
Nintendo set today as its execution date for the DS and Wii’s online services, but hackers have found a way to keep the ol’ Connection alive. There’s now a private server where you can grab DLC for DS games (like Dragon Quest IX) and even play multiplayer on a selection of titles (including Mario Kart DS).
The catch is that you’ll need a digital copy of each game to patch (preferably one you’ve backed up yourself using homebrew tools). And you’ll also need the appropriate devices to play those back-ups on a DS or 3DS. But, hey, I’m not going to let that stop me from making and sharing this ridiculous GIF.

How to Deco-Den your handheld ⊟

This video is more than a year old, but it’s the weekend and this whole production is super cute. If you can’t bear to apply all these sweets to your portable, however delectable it might end up looking, TheBerryholic has also posted deco-den videos with 3DS and 3DS XL cases. Thanks to My Handheld for the link!

Ace Attorney Piano album ⊟

Sounds great, if these clips from the recording sessions are any indication! The album, due out April 23, features 19 tracks from the first three Ace Attorney games, because Capcom apparently chooses not to acknowledge the rest of them. Via Siliconera.

Less hair, belly button for Gunvolt in the U.S. ⊟

Not a less hairy belly button mind you — I assure you that Gunvolt, alias STEVE VOLT, has a belly button that’s just as smooth in Japan as in North America. But we won’t get to see that sleek tummy or his braids Stateside, due to the UNACCEPTABLE censorship in our version, all due to some rogue producer at Inti Creates.

Yes this might seem trivial, but it’s a slippery slope (much like Gunvolt’s velvety navel), one we shouldn’t stand for when this releases to the 3DS eShop this Summer. Thankfully there are heroes out there voicing their dissent over the matter, who will hopefully persuade Inti Creates to reconsider this foolish decision. Thanks to Rockman ZX for bringing this to our attention.
