The Game Boy Legacy: A 25th Anniversary Celebration ⊟
Ahead of the Game Boy’s 25th birthday (it debuted in Japan on April 21, 1989), USgamers Jeremy Parish published a magnificent retrospective on the handheld. It’s a great tribute to the underpowered portable and its father Gunpei Yokoi, and I’m not just saying that because JC and I contributed a handful of words to the piece! Go read it here.

Things are happening in these Smash Bros. screens ⊟

Nintendo sent me a 1.1 GB folder of BMP files today. Yes, one point one U.S. gigabytes of bitmap files. That collection of images includes 200+ screens of the new Smash Bros. game. Since Tumblr’s gallery only lets me upload ten at a time, here are the ones I found most amusing from the 3DS version.

Most of them are odd Luigi shots because there are an inordinate amount of these images in the batch. The others are just weird/un images I found. King Dedede looks like he just witnessed something he can’t unsee.

Tomodachi Life up for preorder ⊟
Obviously, you’re not the only one, Zelda! Amazon has the $35 game up for preorder now, so all of you can make sure your Miis will be talking about hunky Iwata day one (day one probably being a few days after the June 6 release date, when you take shipping into account).

First look at Yokai Watch 2's boxarts, screens ⊟

Yokai Watch has been killing it in Japan, thanks to Level-5’s transmedia approach and the popular animated series there, so I don’t anyone’s surprised that the publisher is releasing a sequel. The game was already kind of Pokemon-y but with spirits, and this follow-up will be even more so, coming out with two versions (Founder and Head) this July 10, each coming with exclusive rare medals. 

Anime News Network provided the following description:

Keita and company will travel back in time to Sakura New Town in the Showa era, thanks to the power of a mysterious yokai (Japanese spirit or demon). The key to the story will be Keizo, a boy from the past who looks like Keita, and Dekanyan, a cat yokai with an amazing secret.

Yokai Watch 2 will also have new events such as climbing the school flagpole to better find yokai, and bicycle races. If players have already gone through the first Yokai Watch game, they can make friends with special yokai in Yokai Watch 2.

You can watch two announcement trailers here. Level-5 hasn’t revealed anything about bringing the series to the U.S., but there have been hints.

Price cut on five 3DS staples ⊟
This little dude (a Dr. Who 3DS XL from Nessa, via My Handheld) looks pretty happy about something. Maybe it’s Nintendo of America permanently cutting the price for five of its biggest 3DS releases.
Starting April 22, you’ll be able to buy the following games from the eShop or retailers for $29.99 each:
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
Mario Kart 7
New Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario 3D Land
All of those games have hovered around $30 for a while at some point, and a couple even launched at only $35. Still, yay for cheaper games. I haven’t spent enough time with DKCR 3D or NSMB 2 to deliver a verdict on them, but the other three are must-buys if you are the type of person who likes to play games that are fun. Otherwise, they’re alright to skip.

Anyone else playing Disney Magical World? ⊟

I almost forgot it came out late this week, but this launch trailer reminded me. What does everyone think about it so far? A suitable replacement for Animal Crossing: New Leaf? Nintendo seems to think so — it sent out an email last night to people who have registered New Leaf that read in its subject line, “You played Animal Crossing, now try this new game”.

Here are a bunch of AR cards from Japan that you can scan to get free stuff in Disney Magical World (e.g. furniture, outfits).

Mercenary Kings coming to PS Vita ⊟
As are Ninja Senki DX (another game with a Tiny cameo!) and Tribute Games’ next project Curses n’ Chaos, according to a report from Destructoid. Mercenary Kings is expected to have Cross-Buy with the PlayStation 4 version. The console and PC versions are great, but obviously we feel like the game will work even better on a handheld.

Nendoroid Link: The Wind Waker figure ⊟

It’s even more adorable than I expected! Releasing in Japan this August (priced at ¥3,704, or $36.47), this figure from Good Smile includes the sword, shield, heart container, several facial expressions, and more.

Thanks to Thomas P. for the tip!

TinyCast 28! Back at full strength, we spend a lot of time discussing Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball, Yumi’s Odd Odyssey, and other games we’re playing. You wouldn’t hear this discussion on any other podcast! It’d be weird for them to talk about the games we’re playing.

Seriously, though, I can’t imagine many other podcasts going in depth on the design of these two games like this episode does. Enjoy!

Is this real Tomodachi Life ⊟

Guys, Friend Fiction is never going to be the same once this drops in a couple months. And you’ll be able to easily share screenshots from those virtual scenes on Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter:

"Tomodachi Life already supports Nintendo’s Image Share tool, but the developers have gone a step further. They’ve included a link that will automatically launch the service into the game itself. So players will be able to quickly share screenshots using this tool."

This is me right now.

It’s hard to pick a favorite moment from this morning’s Nintendo Direct for Tomodachi Life ⊟
So I’m just going to make GIFs for a bunch of them and post the scenes. I loved this snippet of Nintendo’s execs and other staff members (haha at Miyamoto dressed as a cowboy in the back) dancing around a Virtual Boy, paying tribute to its creator Gunpei Yokoi, RIP. Knowing hardly anything about the man, I have a feeling Yokoi would have loved this game.
Who knows, maybe he might have also loved Christina Aguilera, who Nintendo of America has enlisted to help promote this game. Here’s the first video the company has posted starring the singer’s Mii — Nintendo intends to bring in other celebrities for its ads. Not a bad idea, since a lot of Tomodachi Life’s fun is in seeing familiar people interact with each other in surprising ways.
