Junji Ito x Pokemon ⊟
Pokemon’s about to get real, real creepy, y’all— creepier than even Creepy Black. The Pokemon Company has collaborated with horror manga artist Junji Ito, who you may know from That One Comic About People Obsessed with People-Shaped Holes in a Mountain and every other unsettling Japanese comic you’ve seen online. The collaboration is called “Kowapoke,” or “Scarypoke.”
The Pokemon Company released one preview image in the form of a phone wallpaper, above, featuring the world’s most menacing Banette. They’re also giving t-shirts out in Japan featuring the image, for people who need more personal space, I guess.
Game Freak told us they were freaky.
Halloween gear for Nintendo fans and psycho killers ⊟
Hoping to dress up as your favorite Nintendo character this halloween? But you’d also like to go on a killing spree if possible? No worries, the two plans don’t need to be mutually exclusive, thanks to these frightening Link masks (via Dorkly) and Mario hoodies (via Nadia Oxford). I’m not sure where you can buy them, though. This might be one of those things where they acquire you.
eShop’s spoopy Halloween makeover ⊟
I just logged onto the eShop to download Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies (I don’t have time to play it right now and I do not care), and I noticed this great Halloweening of the page.
Someone at NOA actually made new art for every single eShop category, for both the main image and the little touchscreen icon, and changed the names of the categories to spooky puns.
Just wanted to give this adorable, and fully unnecessary, move a shoutout. Nintendo employee: I noticed.
BUY Nintendo 2DS and 3DS/XL consoles, upcoming games
That’s right, things are getting super spooky up in this piece. Look at that cat with its bow tie; that fellow is up to no good. Also, the other stickers glow in the dark, so you know something is about to pop off.
Stickers? 3DS? Ghosts? You know the drill.

With Halloween coming soon, now is the perfect time to
hawk our junk remember everyone’s favorite creepypasta and haunted video game, Pokémon (Creepy) Black.
Guys, wouldn’t it be crazy if (Creepy) Black was real? Like, if you could pop a cartridge into your system, show it to your friends, and see them flip out?
What if I told you there’s a way to get your own (Creepy) Black DS or 3DS cart? Or that if you’re reckless enough to try it, you can relive the story on your system?
So, submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, I call this post… How to make your own Pokémon (Creepy) Black cart!

Creepy TV commercials for Japanese games. Are you actually playing or planning to play horror games this All Hallows’ Evening? Are you that person all these sites are writing “Top Games To Play This Halloween” posts for?
If so, here are some ideas! There’s even a new fan translation for the last title in the video, Nanashi no Game. Or if you’re looking for something more recent to play on your 3DS, there’s always Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove, Ghost Trick, Aliens: Infestation, or, uh, Professor Layton and the Last Specter?

Concept art for Capcom’s upcoming plush SEVERED TAIL. This Monster Hunter item, a replica of a Rathalos tail, is definitely the most Halloweeny thing I’ve seen today. Gruesome!
Way to make me feel bad for hunting monsters. This thing’s going to give me nightmares, and then I’ll wake up and realize that the pillow I’m hugging is OH GOD A SEVERED TAIL.

It’s too late to get a new Meat Bun shirt for Halloween, but you can order one now for a day in which you aren’t in a costume. For today only, all of the site’s shirts are 31% off (GET IT)!
If you’re feeling seasonal, you can pick up the Samba de los Muertos shirt above for $16.56. I’m pretty fond of the new, black/gray variant of the "4th Gen" shirt, myself. It’s the same price! So cheap!
