Nintendo WiFi Connection not quite dead ⊟
Nintendo set today as its execution date for the DS and Wii’s online services, but hackers have found a way to keep the ol’ Connection alive. There’s now a private server where you can grab DLC for DS games (like Dragon Quest IX) and even play multiplayer on a selection of titles (including Mario Kart DS).
The catch is that you’ll need a digital copy of each game to patch (preferably one you’ve backed up yourself using homebrew tools). And you’ll also need the appropriate devices to play those back-ups on a DS or 3DS. But, hey, I’m not going to let that stop me from making and sharing this ridiculous GIF.

New Adventure Time game announced for 3DS ⊟
Developed once again by WayForward (published this time by Little Orbit instead of D3P), Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom will release for 3DS, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC/Steam this November. No Wii U or new-gen versions, as far as I can tell!
Unfortunately, this is not the online multiplayer version of Drop Ball we’ve all been clamoring for. Instead, it “introduces a classic top-down action adventure experience and puzzle-solving element to the franchise, reminiscent of early high fantasy console games.”
"Players take on the personas of both Finn and Jake as they navigate through the eponymous kingdom - a mysterious unexplored region in the Land of Ooo," Little Orbit adds. "They will discover hidden secrets by exploring all corners of a new kingdom created exclusively for the game and encounter never-seen-before characters and creatures."
Still unsure why they just don’t make Drop Ball — it’d be an automatic hit, and would take over the eSports scene.

$5 off Kirby Triple Deluxe ⊟
Amazon has discounted Kirby Triple Deluxe to $29.96 ahead of the 3DS game’s May 2 release. I’ve heard the game is really, really, really good, and I promise you I’m seriously not just saying that because we attach referral tags to these Amazon links. People are calling this the business, and part of that business is cowboy Kirby whipping a big ol’ walrus butt (GIF via Manolizer!).
While you’re preordering 3DS games at Amazon, you can also pick up Tomodachi Life and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call.

The Game Boy Legacy: A 25th Anniversary Celebration ⊟
Ahead of the Game Boy’s 25th birthday (it debuted in Japan on April 21, 1989), USgamers Jeremy Parish published a magnificent retrospective on the handheld. It’s a great tribute to the underpowered portable and its father Gunpei Yokoi, and I’m not just saying that because JC and I contributed a handful of words to the piece! Go read it here.

In case you forgot this happened last night ⊟

It happened. It wasn’t a dream. Mega Man’s “Final Smash” move in the new Smash Bros. has the hero lined up with Volnutt, X, and other variations to deliver a light show.

And here are Mega Man’s moves that were shown off during yesterday’s Smash Direct. GIFs via Revengeance!

Here are the folks announced for the new Smash Bros. so far ⊟

The top image contains the new Smash Bros. game’s Assist Trophies (here’s a version with the Metroid shown this morning), while the other pic shows the playable characters with their ancillary buddies, like Olimar with his Pikmin. Both are from Neorice, who is on Tumblr so you should follow him.

Don’t forget that there will be a Nintendo Direct dedicated to the 3DS/Wii U game tomorrow, streaming at 6PM ET (12AM EU time) — we’ll probably see one or two new faces to add to the roster!

Another stellar 3DS RPG on sale! Fire Emblem: Awakening is just $31.99 on Amazon right now, while Bravely Default is $31.66. At those prices, you can get two of the best RPGs from the last two years, for the same you’d pay if you bought something butt on a console like Lightning Returns.

Bravely Default is on sale for $32 at Amazon ⊟
$31.66, actually — you should grab this fun 3DS JRPG if you haven’t yet. I told JC about this deal, to which he responded, “More like… Savely Discount,” and so that’s why he’s not allowed to post on this site anymore.
Big ups to Wario64 for the link, and Slitherup for the GIF.

Nya Nya Nya! Cat Puppet Mario Time ⊟
So Nintendo has been putting out these “Nya Nya Nya! Neko Mario Time” (Meow Meow Meow Cat Mario Time) videos in Japan to promote Super Mario 3D World and other games — strange but amusing stuff.
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.

Danganronpa x Mega Man by Shawnmarvelous ⊟
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.

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.

Thanks to Metamorro and Shell Yeah TMNT for the GIFs!
