Fantastic Lucina pencils/watercolor art by Jenninaitsu
Is it okay to talk about/identify this character yet? Everyone’s already played the game, right? And it’s not like we all weren’t spoiled about her whole deal forever ago.
Anyway, this is a great companion piece to the last amazing Jenninaitsu piece we featured.
Dark Layton, Dark Phoenix Wright, and Level-5-style Dark Phoenix Wright, scrapped designs from the Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney artbook. These images were posted by @RyougaSaotome and are awesome.
I want to live in the alternate universe where this is the game. I can kind of visit that universe by searching Tumblr, where Dark Layton fanart is starting to show up in surprising amounts. Warning,
sometimes almost always, searching Tumblr for fanart results in hella NSFW stuff.
Let’s all go into the weekend in this spirit: stretched out on a cushion, just playing whatever makes us happy, whether it’s Fire Emblem or Mega Man 2 – oh yeah, Mega Man 2’s out on eShop this week! – or something from the backlog.
New round of Fire Emblem: Awakening DLC out
Fire Emblem: Awakening’s first paid downloadable content is now available at your local Outrealm Gate, dubbed Champions of Yore 2 and featuring series favorite Roy.
You can pay $2.50 for the map, or spend $4 to buy the Champions Pack. The latter contains the first and currently free map, Champions of Yore 2, and the third not-yet released chapter with Micaiah.
The fantastic artwork above of “Marth,” by the way, comes from Poiv.
Nintendo helping Japanese devs bring more 3DS games to the West
It seems Western developers haven’t been able to match the 3DS output of their Japanese counterparts, in both quantity and quality, so Nintendo is picking up the slack. President and CEO Satoru Iwata said during an investors briefing yesterday that the company will help Japanese studios distribute more of their titles overseas, similar to its arrangement with Level-5 and the Professor Layton series.
That’s in addition to the “approximately 10 key titles” from its first-party pool that Nintendo will release for the 3DS in the West, presumably including Fire Emblem: Awakening, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Brain Age: Concentration Training, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins, Pokémon X/Y, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf — the last of which is still scheduled for the first half of this year.

“Marth” pencils/watercolor piece by Jenninaitsu
There is a lot of Fire Emblem: Awakening fanart I’ve found and wanted to share with you lately, but most of it is filled with spoilers. :o/ You’ll have to settle with my shipping updates from the game’s support convos on our Twitter in the meantime.

Legend of Zelda: Mammal’s Mask by Teagan White
I am astonished by the amount of fanart people have already produced for Pokemon X and Y’s starters — this is just a flicker from the wildfire of Fennekin illustrations out there threatening to engulf the entire internet. Their artists in order of appearance:
One of these is not like the others (hint: it’s the most amazing one).
