Happy Holidays from Amaterasu ⊟
Capybara artist and animator Kelly Smith offers up one last holiday card from Attract Mode’s Bit Bazaar: Winter Market pack, and it’s a great Okami tribute.
Bit Bazaar: Winter Market is going on right now in Toronto! If you hurry to Bento Miso, you might still be able to make it before the event closes (7PM) and grab some of these cards! You’ll also see some killer zines, games, snacks, comics, and more.
Damnit, Snorunt ⊟
This Bit Bazaar: Winter Market holiday card comes from Kris Mukai, who makes awesome stuff on the reg, so follow her Tumblr. I want so much in this illustration: the sweater, the socks, the cookies, the hot chocolate, the Pokemon best bud.
You’ll be able to buy this along with other holiday cards from Attract Mode and Bento Miso this Saturday in Toronto — RSVP here!
Deck the Halls with Samus Aran ⊟

Bit Bazaar will feature “one-of-a-kind, limited-edition goods from over 30 exhibitors — zines, games, comics, t-shirts, posters, mixtapes and toys — right from the artists!” RSVP here.
Fabulous Fangamer X Attract Mode prints on sale ⊟
Remember all those great pieces we featured from last summer’s Fangamer X Attract Mode show? They’re now available to purchase online over at the Attract Mode shop! Though some of the prints are made to order, if you place your order soon, you should still be able to get them in time for Christmas in case you want to give them out as presents.
Kari Fry’s Field Guide to Kanto ⊟
Wow! Fangamer just debuted this beautiful paperback/hardcover book by Kari Fry, with detailed illustrations of all 151 original Pokemon, with detailed information. It’s like an Audubon guide to notional creatures, and I love it.
It’s also part of Fangamer’s “Sleep In Sale" just like everything else, offering free shipping on everything and bonuses with $50 and $100 orders.
Neat Zelda, Nintendo shirts from Threadless ⊟
Like, when was the last time a “haha Zelda reference” shirt was actually cool?
Did you listen to the new TinyCast, which is all about The Legend of Zelda: A Link between Worlds? If not, go ahead and do that right now — maybe check out the eShop while that plays, and grab one of the Zelda games currently on sale (Zelda 1, 2, and Link’s Awakening DX all 30 percent off).
Really love what Nintendo’s done with this franchise ⊟
I know Jeremy Parish isn’t fond of the latest Zelda game’s visual style, but based on this artwork alone it looks amazing.
:oP The art is from Secret Octopus, but I’m using it as an opportunity to mention two quick Luigi and Zelda things:
- I’ve been playing A Link Between Worlds, and it’s pretty fun so far
- OMG, there is a Luigi Bros. version of Mario Bros. included in Super Mario 3D World
It’s been such a great year.
Days after Nintendo closed Swapnote's online messaging feature, we finally know more about what might have caused the sudden service stoppage.
According to a couple reports popping up in Japanese outlets Mainichi and Yomiuri Online, a 44-year-old man is said to have used the app to communicate with pre-teen girls, convincing them to send back nude photos. Two other men allegedly lured a 12-year-old girl to a hotel multiple times to perform “improper acts” after connecting with her through an online dating site she accessed with her 3DS (possibly using the handheld’s browser?).
Kotaku says the reports mention the victims’ parents turned off the online functions of their daughters’ 3DSes, but the children turned them back on.
Terrible, terrible people. The sad Nikki artwork above is courtesy of Koto by the way. You can hear us talking more about Swapnote's demise in our new podcast episode published this morning.

Gravity, the NES game ⊟
The Famicom version of this is pretty awesome, just for that part where you bark into the controller’s mic along with the dog in Greenland.

Just sittin’ here, thinking about the Year of Luigi ⊟
You know that Year of Luigi 2DS? Yeah, that’s not happening; it’s a fan-made piece. The guy who made it claims that photos he took of the convincing mod (along with the phony packaging he meticulously created, down to the fake barcode sticker) were sent to press outlets without his permission — unfortunately everyone presumed it was the real deal before he could clear up the rumors, four days later in a video interview..
Why would someone do all that in, yes, this year of Luigi? I don’t know. I don’t know. **Clouds float by, an autumn wind whistles in Luigi’s ear and nearly blows his hat off. He stains his gloves pulling up blades of grass and letting them flit out of his hands. So goes the twilight months of this Year of Luigi**
