Cooking Mama 5 out September 16 ⊟
Majesco sent out these new screens along with the release date for Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appetit. You can see Mama dressed up for “the new Cooking Dojo mode where Mama slips into her gi for some serious culinary training.” Serious, serious sticking kiwi to a cake.
You can also see the screen declaring “Parfait: perfect!” which I just find amusing.
Uh oh, you can buy those Sega shirts from Japan ⊟
@zerochan spotted the Geek Life Sega shirts I posted before – the amazing silhouette and all-over designs – as well as these new ones, for sale on Amiami. A bit of a problem for someone who might feel compelled to spend $50+ on some Opa-Opa or Altered Beast stuff.
Problem or opportunity, I guess, depending on your finances/impulse control.

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!
Don’t sleep on Siesta Fiesta ⊟
Siesta Fiesta takes one of the oldest, most iterated but least innovated genres in games, and makes something totally new out of it. And it does this in an upbeat, cute setting with a beautiful presentation that almost seems too graphically impressive for the 3DS.
I didn’t pay much attention to this game before its release. I’m a big dummy, and I’m telling you now that you shouldn’t be like me.
Siesta Fiesta is basically a Breakout game with a simple twist that CHANGES EVERYTHING FOREVER: instead of requiring you to clear the whole screen to move to the next stage, each stage scrolls from left to right. The goal is not to break everything, but to break as much as you can to get a high score by the end of the stage - while still being careful to preserve your life.
Here’s the nice thing about the Bayonetta anime ⊟
I can’t get past like level 3 of the game, but it doesn’t take reflexes, pattern recognition, memorization or really any skills at all to watch all the way through Bayonetta: Bloody Fate.
Here’s the other nice thing: it’ll be out October 21 on Blu-Ray/DVD.
PREORDER Bayonetta 2, upcoming releases
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.
Nintendo Everything originally posted that this, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Mario Kart 7, and New Super Mario Bros. 2 were all discounted to the same price, but the latter three have already gone back up.
However! Super Mario 3D Land is still $25 on Amazon, and it’s great, and that’s a great price, and hooray. The price will probably go back up on it as well, as Amazon sells through whatever allotment it has.

Nazo no Murasame-jou on US 3DS August 7 ⊟
Nintendo announced on its SDCC stream (via Wario64) that this Famicom Disk System game, never before released in North America, will be on 3DS Virtual Console August 7. It came out in Europe back in May.
Here’s a cool thing: this game was one of the demos shown off back at E3 2010, along with Mega Man 2, Super Mario Bros. and some other stuff. Back then, Nintendo was showing them off as 3D updates like the 3D Classics series, but yeah.
So pumped about finally being able to buy and play this game! I have a Disk System, but didn’t pick the game up with it for whatever reason; also my Disk System doesn’t work.

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 ⊟
NES Remix 1 and 2, Nintendo’s fun collections of remixed NES games previously released on the Wii U eShop, will have a physical disc release in North American stores this holiday season. Yay, Super Luigi Bros. and Nintendo World Championships mode.
Mario Kart 7 is only $24.99 on Amazon right now ⊟
I know Mario Kart 8 and Luigi’s death stare arewhat everyone is into at the moment, but Wario is still in Mario Kart 7, so it’s nice that you can get this sexy game for a portable pretty cheap right now. Deal via ss4444gogeta, tweet via @weinerdog4life!
