Smash Bros. will have a Paper Mario stage ⊟
"It’s made of paper, so strong winds will blow it away. Since the stage is paper, it transforms when it folds over and opens up again. This ship is the S.S. Flavion from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.”
Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire and Alpha/Omega compared ⊟
I love seeing how Game Freak updates its 2D worlds into 3D scenes for its remakes, adding so much more detail and flair without losing the design of the original. Props to @RogersBase for the comparison shots!
Yup, you can play Link dress-up with MH4U in the West too ⊟
So we knew the Japanese version of this 3DS game featured a Nintendo collab to offer Link’s armor set and weapons in Japan, so it’s no surprise that Capcom just announced the same will be true in North America. The publisher also says it has more special equipment announcements coming soon.
One Piece: Super Grand Battle! X ⊟
While One Piece Unlimited World Red just released in the U.S., Japan will be getting another 3DS title based on the license this winter from Bandai Namco, according to Shonen Jump's scan posted by Redon. From what I can tell, One Piece: Super Grand Battle! X allows ups to four-players to battle it out in tag-team matches, offering some 85 playable fighters.
It looks like this is a successor to One Piece: Gigant Battle!, the Japan-only fighting series from Ganbarion that played a lot like the Jump Ultimate/Super Stars games. Those never released in North America (the first Gigant Battle hit Europe), but we’re getting more One Piece games, so maybe that will change with this one.
If you want to hear some impressions on Unlimited World Red, by the way, make sure to listen to the latest TinyCast episode!
NES Remix Pack coming to U.S. stores ⊟

Evolution of Smash Bros. menu screens ⊟
Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai presented this first look at the upcoming 3DS game’s main menu, noting, “The icons are even animated. The design concept may look similar if you’ve played other games I’ve worked on.”
With that comment and all these screenshots conveniently provided in this NeoGAF thread, it seemed like a fine time to compare the menu screens for (from top to bottom) Super Smash Bros., Melee, Brawl, and the 3DS game. I also threw in Kid Icarus: Uprising, Meteos, and Kirby Air Ride — all titles Sakurai also directed.
Captain Falcon and Kirby acting the fool ⊟
Captain Falcon’s booty game is out of control. Nintendo put out 100+ screenshots of the new Smash Bros. this morning, focusing on recently announced fighters Robin, Captain Falcon, and Lucina. You can check them out all here, but I don’t understand why you need to see anything else after that Captain Falcon booty pic. Real talk, looks like he stuffed two basketballs in his pants. Not sure how anyone is going to be able to pay attention to their battle when he starts bouncing around.
Your Tomodachi will be in Smash Bros. ⊟
Along with a 3DS-exclusive Tomodachi Life stage, the new Smash Bros. will feature Miis pulled from your system, wandering the level’s apartments.
More info on the stage:
"The front walls of the apartments disappear so you can see the area within when a fighter overlaps with the room. The rooms are randomly placed and selected from among several types. Planting an X Bomb behind a wall might be an effective tactic."
We’ll be posting a bunch of new Smash Bros. screens shortly too. Prepare yourself for Captain Falcon buttocks. Be ready for his jelly.
Persona Q coming on November 25 ⊟
Atlus has a North American release date for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth launch, and it’s… too far away. 3DS owners are going to have a lot of new toys to play with at the end of the year.
The November date gives you time to save up for the premium-priced $49.99 game (includes 11 tarot cards), the $79.99 limited edition bundle (includes 11 tarot cards, art boooklet, soundtrack CD, 3DS XL hard case, and a special box), and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax for PS3/Xbox 360 (includes inflatable Teddie bop bag and the rest of the tarot cards to complete your collection).

Sakurai finally cracked ⊟
Crushed under the weight of endless demands that he include Goku in the new Smash Bros., series director Masahiro Sakurai threw in the Saiyan just to make everyone shut-up about it. In a follow-up Miiverse comment, he added, “And if you kids keep pestering me about SpongeBob and Ridley, so help me god, I am canceling the entire thing.”*
