Nya Nya Nya! Cat Puppet Mario Time ⊟
If watching these videos is inspiring you to host your own Cat Mario show, you will soon be able to import a similar hand puppet! Rakuten has its Cat Mario puppets priced at around $20 (before shipping and handling), and says it will release this June. Credit to @farmboyinjapan for spotting the product, and to Supper Mario Broth for the GIF.
Several Danganronpa things I wanted to share:
- JC just informed me that our former coworker Jason Wishnov voices the highfalutin Byakuya Togami (Rich Man) in Danganronpa! Great work, Jason!
- Once again, here’s our podcast episode about Danganronpa and the Zero Escape series — I really enjoyed this one.
- After you listen to that, read this interview with Danganronpa's producers conducted by TinyCast member Christian Nutt.
- Snowman cosplaying as Hifumi Yamada.
Literally a dangan list.
(✪⥎✪), this "Parallax View" music video ⊟
Wow, go watch this "Parallax View" music video from Sumire Uesaka — it might look like a standard Youtube embed on a Tumblr at first, but then it turns into a wild experience that mashes up Doom and Ghosts ‘n Goblins and Pokémon and Final Fantasy and — just watch it. If you recognize the song, by the way, it’s the ending theme from Hōzuki no Reitetsu. Hat-tip to Prosthetic Knowledge for the GIF and link.

I want to play Teens of Rage, Meat Beat Mania ⊟
Our Twitter followers already know I’ve been loving Steven Universe — “Tiger Millionaire” is a top-tier cartoon episode. The last episode to air, though, “Arcade Mania,” is also great stuff, especially for including these two cabinets.
Teens of Rage, according to Keep Beach City Weird, is a fighting game made my Carpcom (not to be confused with the crappy 3D version Virtua Teens of Rage), while Meat Beat Mania is a meat-themed version of Samba de Amigo.

Persona Q's 3DS XL, subbed trailers ⊟
We don’t have a photo of it yet, but we now know that Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth will have a special edition 3DS XL system and bundle when it hits Japan on June 5. All first-run copies of the game will also include a Persona Q: Sound of the Labyrinth arrange album from the Atlus Sound Team.
Atlus released two full-length (instead of the usual character-focused) trailers for the game today, which we have subtitled for you thanks to Pepsiman. First up, here’s the trailer for the Persona 4 group:
You would think we’d have posted about Twitch Plays Pokemon by now, the madness that’s engrossed hundreds of thousands of people, all prostrated to the almighty Helix Fossil.
I tried watching it for 20 minutes, during which I just saw Red unable to navigate his way out of a Pokemon Center, repeatedly accessing a PC until he released CCC the Hitmonlee.
After all that despair, I decided to cheer myself up by going back to playing Dangonronpa.
My favorite part from the new Smash trailer ⊟
I saw these GIFs reblogged on Nadia Oxford’s tumblr, where she wrote, “Glad to see it acknowledged that Samus is tall as hell and not the tiny, frail waif Other M makes her out to be.”
Agreed! She’s supposed to be close to 6’3” and 200 lbs out of her armor, according to this Nintendo Power comics scan. Little Mac is like 5’7”.
Oh no, Virtue’s Last Reward/999's future is in doubt ⊟
I just presumed that Spike Chunsoft was well into development for the third Zero Escape game, but series director Kotaro Uchikoshi says the next sequel is in jeopardy. The problem is that while the franchise has a bit of popularity in the West, it hasn’t made a profit in Japan.
"I’m so sad, but all companies exist for profit-making purposes," Uchikoshi posted on Twitter earlier today. “If the profits can’t be expected, naturally, the project isn’t approved. We were not able to present a convincing reasonable basis to the managers. … I am very sorry to all the users who are expecting Zero Escape 3. I feel ashamed of my own inadequacies.”
He added that if circumstances change — say the next project he works on turns out to be a hit, or if someone generous steps in to finance Zero Escape 3's development — the game could still happen. Though his team looked into Kickstarter, they were not convinced that they would be able to pull off a successful campaign on that platform.
Uchikoshi continued, “I believe there is still hope. Zero Escape 3 will definitely be released somehow, someday! I will continue to seek a way out in cooperation with allies. So, I would appreciate it if you could wait until then. Thank you!”

PS Vita Slim hits U.S. with Borderlands bundle ⊟
Already available in Japan and the UK, the new PS Vita model (PCH-2000) will make it to North America this spring as part of a $199 Borderlands 2 bundle. Available only in black, the handheld is 20 percent slimmer and 15 percent lighter than the original model. It also features an LCD screen instead of the much-fawned-over OLED display, 1GB of internal memory, and about an hour more of battery life. The bundle will include the port of Borderlands 2 with six DLC packs, as well as an 8GB memory card.
Lots of PS Vita news today:
- Here’s an image gallery of the Borderlands 2 bundle
- God of War Collection coming out May 9 for $29.99
- Sly Cooper Collection his May 27
- Aksys releasing BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma this summer

Club Tiny mystery gift pack incoming! ⊟
Last week, we introduced Club Tiny as a way for readers to support our work with a monthly pledge at Patreon. Whether you join or not, Tiny Cartridge will remain as awesome as it’s always been for free — even awesomer, actually, thanks to the extra attention we can now give the site — but Club Tiny members will receive fun bonuses for their patronage.

Thank you all again for the generosity and support you’ve shown us so far, helping us reach our Patreon goals and spread the word. I can’t believe how much you’ve pledged already. You are the best. It would require ten thousand posts for us to come close to expressing our gratitude, but we’re trying hard not to spam the site with Patreon-related articles and our excitement.

"Is Gengar Clefable’s shadow?" ⊟
Also, are they secretly characters from Street Fighter Alpha 2? This neat — if slightly out-of-sync — GIF comes from ChipSprites, who was inspired by the theory that Gengar is the shadow of Clefable. I’m told XY's introduction of the Fairy-type (Clefable's type) disproves one key argument for this theory, as it now allows them to damage each other, when previously they couldn't with STAB moves due to immunities.
In case you forgot about Dragon Quest Monsters 2 ⊟
Here’s a GIF to remind you the 3DS remake (and its limited edition XL bundle — here’s an unboxing) released in Japan this week. The image comes from Kimimi, who posted a video showing the first half hour of her playthrough with the import at Nintendo Life.
So, again, that makes four Dragon Quest games for 3DS that have released in Japan and nowhere else. Now that Bravely Default is out in North America today, maybe we’ll hear about other plans Square Enix and Nintendo have for this side of the Pacific soon. Might as well put those trademarks to use!
