Tiny Cartridge 3DS

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.

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.

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!

That’s right, it’s about to get hella spooky up in this piece.

(Creepy) Black - Pokémon Trainer edition
If all you want is a cartridge that looks like (Creepy) Black, there is a certain spell to summon such a creature, one that was hidden in ancient Sumerian tablets recently discovered in the vault of an eccentric billionaire and artifact collector who vanished mysteriously. The cuneiform script, which instilled a sense of dread and despair in anyone whose eyes simply grazed their form, was eventually translated and posted online as a PDF.
For this fun craft project, you will need:
A DS or 3DS cartridge you won’t mind defacing
2 drops of Thieves Vinegar
At least 4 coffin nails, 8 if you want to play it safe
The Tiny Cart sticker pack, containing four amazing Mare Odomo-designed DS/3DS stickers, all for $5
A handful of soil once trodden by a Gengar
Detailed instructions for making a (Creepy) Black cart:
Throw away the vinegar, coffin nails, and soil
Put the (Creepy) Black sticker on top of the label on your DS or 3DS cartridge — if you want, you can apply the other stickers to other carts
That’s it! You now have a (Creepy) Black cart!

(Creepy) Black - Pokémon Master edition
Presumed lost forever when the Library of Alexandria burned down, there was once a scroll detailing a forbidden ritual allowing DS or 3DS owners to experience a visual novel re-telling of (Creepy) Black. Only recently did the scroll’s text re-appear on the back of Club Nintendo code inserts included with Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir.
For this terrifying ceremony, you will need:
This link open in a separate tab, to play in the background and make everything seem extra creepy
A homebrew device that works with your DS or 3DS
The Tiny Cart sticker pack, a common ingredient valued by all practitioners of dark magick
Oil of Abramelin, full bottle
1 feather from a Shiny Lugia, deceased or alive
1 branch from a rowan tree charred by lightning
Multiple: Option’s Pokémon Ghost Black ReTold
If you’re mad enough to go through with the ritual, make sure to follow these elaborate steps exactly as described. Failing to do so could leave your soul trapped in Yu-Gi-Oh's Shadow Realm for centuries, if not forever.
Wait for a moonless night to conduct the ceremony — make sure there are absolutely no mirrors or anything reflective nearby
Cast a standard protection spell with the feather, branch, and oil to ward off Ghost-type Pokémon that will be sure to attack you once they sense the ritual
Copy Pokémon Ghost Black ReTold from your PC to your homebrew device (or use other fanmade Creepy Black hacks/homebrew, if you want)
Apply the sticker to your homebrew device
When you hear the sobs of Gothitelle behind you, and you see your shadow sprinting away, you’ll know that you’ve successfully completed the ritual. You now have your very own Pokémon (Creepy) Black cart. But at what cost?*

*As mentioned earlier, the cost is just $5 for the Tiny Cart sticker pack — which includes four stickers — before shipping/handling.

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?

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!
