Nice Zelda, Yoshi bags from EU Club Nintendo ⊟

Cool little details like special zipper pulls and, uh, being a giant Yoshi Egg backpack make these new rewards on the EU Club Nintendo Stars Catalogue worth noting.

Speaking of worth, at 4000+ Stars, you’ll have to register a lot of games before you’re sporting these looks.

Limited Edition Smash Bros. 3DS XL unveiled ⊟

So far it’s only announced for Europe, but I would be surprised if Nintendo of America didn’t support such a big release with special edition hardware in the States. This bundle, which includes a pre-installed digital copy of Smash Bros., will launch alongside the 3DS game in Europe on October 3.

The company also announced Meta Knight will return as a playable fighter.

Shin Megami Tensei IV heads to Europe in Q3 ⊟
Atlus finally completed all the proper demon negotiations required to bring Shin Megami Tensei IV to Europe. It’ll be released on eShop only (in English, which probably won’t be an issue for Tiny readers) sometime in the third quarter of this year.
Meanwhile… sorry Europe, but the game is on sale on the North American eShop for $25. That sale’s active through June 30. Image via Ounomachi.

Here’s that Cave Story you ordered, Europe ⊟
On May 1, Cave Story will finally arrive on the 3DS eShop, an occasion commemorated by the amazingly Kool artwork above, tweeted by Nicalis.
Personally, I’ll commemorate this announcement by replaying Cave Story, like I do too often. Or not often enough. I’m still not any damn good at Cave Story.

Sayonara Umihara Kawase greets Europe April 24 ⊟

Now you can leave Natsume’s poor community manager alone, as Yumi’s Odd Odyssey has a release date in Europe. Japanese publisher Agatsuma Entertainment is handling the EU version, which it calls “Sayonara UmiharaKawase” and describes as “a rubbering action.”

The EU version will cost 24.99 Euro, which is relatively comparable to the $29.99 the US version costs. I wonder if there are any localization differences other than the title! Via Tenki.

Boxart battle: Tomodachi Life US vs. EU ⊟

I’d love to know the specific strategies that led Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe to create such different executions of similar ideas for their Tomodachi Life boxes.

The European version looks mostly similar to the Japanese boxart, right down to the placement of most of the characters. You may notice that some of the Japanese Miis have been replaced, though (look at the kneeling “No, I really love you” dude)! 

I really like the logo on the US version!

Kirby gets his own Pink + White 2DS in Europe ⊟
It’s like an inverted version of the Peach Pink 2DS North America will receive for Disney Magical World's launch (I prefer the one we're getting in the States). Like that system, this limited edition hardware won't include a pre-installed game copy when it releases alongside Kirby: Triple Deluxe in Europe on May 16. Nintendo, however, will put out a new silver 2DS carrying case on the same day.
Here’s a new Kirby: Triple Deluxe trailer for Europe, too.

Guys. GUYS. Tomodachi Collection. (۞_۞)

Here’s our first look at a translated version of Tomodachi Collection: New Life, the 3DS’s inimitable life sim for your Miis, since Nintendo stealth-revealed it in the Wall Street Journal of all places last month.

According to multiple reports, Nintendo of Europe is passing around an online survey explicitly stating that the game is being localized for that market, sharing these English images (Spanish and French ones are also floating around), a video, and details about the title — check out screenshots of the survey posted by VogelImKafig here.

It looks like Nintendo is trying to get a handle on how to market this odd game, and is seeking feedback on what points to emphasize when introducing it. Ahhhhhhhh it looks like the company is already pretty far along getting this ready to release in the West.

Here’s the description Nintendo is giving for the game:

Senran Kagura Burst’s “Life and Hometown Edition” ⊟

Yep, European publisher Zen United is really calling it that. I guess it sounds totally innocuous if you don’t get the reference to an infamous quote by producer Kenichiro Takaki –  a quote, by the way, which is helpfully printed in Japanese on the shirt.

You can order it here for £49.99.

Small victory for homebrew software in Europe ⊟
The Court of Justice of the European Union has ruled that it’s legal to circumvent encryption systems on your video game console, so long as you’re not doing it to play pirated games. So if you were to use unauthorized devices to run media programs or homebrew games, you won’t be breaking the law.
This issue came up in a lawsuit between Nintendo and Italian retailer PC Box, the latter of which had been bundling DSes and Wiis with devices that bypassed the consoles’ encryption security. PC Box was able to successfully argue that those devices enabled users to run unauthorized software (e.g. MoonShell media player, Homebrew Channel).

Courthouse News Service noted:

European law expressly permits right holders to use technology to protect their copyrighted material ‘without preventing the normal operation of electronic equipment and its technological development.’
The Luxembourg-based high court acknowledged Thursday that Nintendo has right to copy-protect its games but said the company ‘must not go beyond what is necessary for this purpose.’
To determine that, the Italian court must look at whether encryption codes installed on both consoles and games is overkill by Nintendo, according to the ruling.”

That doesn’t mean PC Box is off the hook, as a court in Milan will now investigate how often the retailer’s customers used their bundled devices to run bootlegged games versus homebrew software. It will also look at how often the devices in question are used for piracy purposes versus homebrew apps/games.
Nintendo responded to the ruling in a statement:

"Since Nintendo only ever utilizes technological protection measures which are both necessary and proportionate to prevent widespread piracy of its intellectual property, and since the preponderant purpose of the circumvention devices marketed by PC Box is to enable piracy of legitimate video games, Nintendo is confident that the application of the guidance set out by the CJEU relating to proportionality will enable the Milan Tribunal to determine that the sale of circumvention devices is unlawful."
"In the meantime, Nintendo maintains that the commercial dealings in circumvention devices infringe copyright laws as well as other intellectual property laws and Nintendo will continue to pursue those involved in the distribution of such devices."

This ruling comes shortly after a hacker demonstrated progress in running homebrew software on Nintendo 3DSes (and a week after someone else shared instructions for a risky way to play games from other regions), which hasn’t been possible for most system owners due to the handheld’s aggressive anti-piracy protections.
However, flashcard manufacturers and piracy advocates have kept up the pace with their own developments on the 3DS, recently showing off new capabilities for running multiple bootlegged games on a flashcard.
