Take your pick from these two Ni no Kuni deals!
You can buy the heavily discounted Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch for PlayStation 3, now just $39.99.
Or you can import Ni no Kuni: Shikkoku no Madōshi for the original DS, which is also $39.99 right now — it plays just fine on U.S. systems, and comes with the magic book. Plus, there’s a fan translation project for it that hasn’t died yet.
[Update: Dang, apparently shipping costs from Play-Asia are nuts, like over $20 :o/ ]
There’s the option to buy both, too, but then you’re not saving much money today…

A new Mewtwo form for Pokémon X and Y?
I have no idea what the deal here is — I just stopped at my computer to check my email before I made some BLTs, and I saw that this new Pokémon X and Y video dropped with this teaser.
Serebii says “this Pokémon and Mewtwo’s original self are to appear in a new trailer for [upcoming film] Extremespeed Genesect: Mewtwo Awakens on April 18th, with the secrets to unlocking the mystery within.” Credit to Vlabatsky for the GIFs.
Real life Dr. Light capsule hologram
This made the rounds a month ago after Andrew Butterworth created it for Gauntlet Gallery’s ”Mega Man Boss Battle” show, but I’m posting it anyway because I GIF’d the clip up after seeing it on Albotas, and because it’s now available to purchase for $3,000!
You can see the original Light Capsule replica video here.
Bit.Trip sale and more
Several sales going on right now that are worth copying from our Upcoming Releases section to the front page:

We all have more than enough to play without even thinking about our backlogs, but if you do decide to pick this up, judging by our list of upcoming releases, you will have time to play it during the first week of April. May also looks open for now, as far as 3DS releases go.
Then Animal Crossing: New Leaf ($5 off) hits on June 9, and we expect to have our schedule filled up afterward until forever.
Flipnote Studio 3D on the way
The 3DS successor to popular DSi animation software Flipnote Studio will finally release in North America and Japan (probably Europe, too) this summer as a free download.
Flipnote Studio 3D will feature GIF and AVI exporting support, three layers and six colors to draw with, and a “Flipnote Gallery: Friends” for commenting, rating, and downloading friends’ animations.
The eShop app will also have a “Flipnote Gallery: World” service with community features that aren’t limited to your friends, but it will require a small monthly fee. Nintendo will offer a 30-day free trial, waive the fee for users with high-rating animations, and let everyone access the service for free during certain hours.
Bad news for those of you who refuse to buy 3DSes or are stuck with a DSi for whatever reason — Nintendo will shut down the original Flipnote Studio’s community services at the end of May.
Castlevania: Mirror of Fate demo out today
If you head to the eShop later this afternoon, you can grab the 3DS demo for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate. The impressions I’ve read for the trial so far have been mixed, but supposedly the actual game is decent times. Plus the cutscenes, like the ones you see in these GIFs posted by video game stuffs, seem to have the right tone.
As usual, you can see the full list of handheld digital releases for today, a couple new sales, and more on our Upcoming Releases page.
That’s a lot of Luigis - Mario & Luigi: Dream Team
Nintendo teased that 2013 would be the year of Luigi before, and it’s delivering on that promise with Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon next month, a new Mario & Luigi RPG for 3DS (video here), and the New Super Luigi DLC pack for NSMBU. Mario will have his share of titles, too, with Mario and Donkey Kong and Mario Golf: World Tour.
The mishmash of Dream Team GIFs above come from Maxxie, Sootopolis, and Manolizer. In case it’s not clear in that last image, the game takes place in the mind of a sleeping Luigi — does that make this a sorta sequel to Super Mario Bros. 2?
Miyazaki x Street Fighter: Spirit Fighter by Drew Wise
This, along with a Snorlax x Totoro design, is available as a shirt for on The Yeetee today. The tees aren’t actually animated, but they are super cheap at $11 each.
I almost forgot that this will be shipping out in a week! Unfortunately the more expensive limited edition has been sold out for some time now, but you can still put in a half-price preorder ($19.42) for the standard hardcover.
Tingle reacts to the Wind Waker HD news
♫ Aonuma ain’t do it right if you ask me
If I was him, I’d make Majora’s Mask in HD ♫
Monolith Soft’s X
Wind Waker HD looks hot and all, but we need to talk about this new Wii U project from the developer behind cult RPG Xenoblade Chronicles. Shit looks ridic.
Watch the trailer past the break — it starts off looking like a predictable Xenoblade follow-up with Monster Hunter elements, but then people start hopping into mechas that transform into futuristic cycles and slice up giant dino dudes. And we haven’t even mentioned the music yet, child. We haven’t even mentioned the music.
