Clear Famicom case for your 3DS XL ⊟

Catering to our obsessions with making video game systems we play look like another video game we used to play, Datel will produce this neat protective shell for 3DS XLs. It goes well with this case, too.

NintendoTweet points out that this releases in Japan in late June for ¥1,490, or around $14.50.

Meiji-era Ace Attorney game’s first trailer ⊟

We don’t get any gameplay, but here’s a glimpse of the 3DS game’s new hero Naruhodou Ryuunosuke (an ancestor of Phoenix Wright) and his assistant Mikotoba Susato. We also get to see what courtrooms looked like in turn-of-the-century Los Angeles during the later years of Japan’s Meiji period.

Here’s a subtitled version!

New Ace Attorney 3DS game unveiled ⊟
According to this Famitsu scan posted by @Lite_Agent, this new game takes place during Japan’s Meiji period (1868 - 1912, a.k.a. Rurouni Kenshin times) and naturally features a new star — it looks like that star is an ancestor of Phoenix Wright. He has a sword, too. Cool sword, new guy.
The full title, according to @CourtRecords_, is Dai Gyakuten Saiban - Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Bouken, or Grand Turnabout Trial - The Adventures of Naruhodou Ryuunosuke. As mentioned previously, Ace Attorney creator Shu Takumi is once again heading the project, after taking a break from the series with Dual Destinies.

New Monster Hunter 4G trailer ⊟

You, too, will be able to hunt huge dinosaur/crab-like monsters in the desert — and get your shit wrecked — when this hits the West in early 2015. Japan gets the 3DS game this fall.

First look at Yokai Watch 2's boxarts, screens ⊟

Yokai Watch has been killing it in Japan, thanks to Level-5’s transmedia approach and the popular animated series there, so I don’t anyone’s surprised that the publisher is releasing a sequel. The game was already kind of Pokemon-y but with spirits, and this follow-up will be even more so, coming out with two versions (Founder and Head) this July 10, each coming with exclusive rare medals. 

Anime News Network provided the following description:

Keita and company will travel back in time to Sakura New Town in the Showa era, thanks to the power of a mysterious yokai (Japanese spirit or demon). The key to the story will be Keizo, a boy from the past who looks like Keita, and Dekanyan, a cat yokai with an amazing secret.

Yokai Watch 2 will also have new events such as climbing the school flagpole to better find yokai, and bicycle races. If players have already gone through the first Yokai Watch game, they can make friends with special yokai in Yokai Watch 2.

You can watch two announcement trailers here. Level-5 hasn’t revealed anything about bringing the series to the U.S., but there have been hints.

J-League x Pokemon 3DS XLs ⊟
If you live in Japan and love Japanese soccer, you might have a shot at one of these. The three Pokemon-themed 3DS LL systems above will be given away at Marinos (white), Urawa Reds (red), and FC Tokyo (blue) games, with the number of systems distributed depending on the score of the home team.
Fans will also get special Pikachu-playing-soccer Pokemon cards, and can even meet Pikachu! A suspiciously human-sized Pikachu, but still. That’s just more Pikachu to hug.

Mario Golf golf bag ⊟
Get out on the links and let people know you mean business. Specifically, Nintendo’s licensing business, to the tune of nine hundred dollars.
I’m actually really impressed that so soon after Nintendo announced intent to license its characters for more products, we already have this and the Mario Kart Power Wheels.

"Something’s wrong with Funghi today…" ⊟

I gotta play these Touch Detective games. That’s a gap in my DS knowledge for sure. And I want to be caught up for the eventual localization of this game, Touch Detective 3 (right? Right? Atlus?)

Here’s the first screen of the Kunio RPG ⊟
Well, it’s Kunio hitting a bunch of dudes, except Kunio has HP and MP! And the dudes are orcs or something?
I think I love this. I was wondering how Arc System Works/Million would adapt the Kunio style to a fantasy RPG for Nekketsu Mahou Monogatori (Hot-blood Magic Tale), and the answer appears to be “not at all.” Even the genre listed on the official site, “Nekketsu 2D Action” suggests that this is the familiar gameplay in a new wrapper.

Nendoroid Link: The Wind Waker figure ⊟

It’s even more adorable than I expected! Releasing in Japan this August (priced at ¥3,704, or $36.47), this figure from Good Smile includes the sword, shield, heart container, several facial expressions, and more.

Thanks to Thomas P. for the tip!

Sonic Powered’s Skypeace ⊟

This is a 3DS game about someone who really knows how to video chat.

Okay, it’s actually a Jetpack Joyride-type game about flying around on a surfboard thing and picking up thousands of coins.

I can’t really tell, but it looks like you have direct movement control over the character rather than simply holding the touchscreen to control altitude, which seems like it would make the game way easier. Unless the levels get that much more difficult to compensate.

Anyway, this is out… today in Japan for just 300 yen.

Spelunker cartridge cosplay ⊟

Okay, so it’s just a t-shirt with the Famicom cartridge design on it. This is just one of the designs on Japanese site Dune, and I want all of them. But mostly this one.

At this point I think I should remind you that Spelunker HD is amazing, much better than the original. It’s, perhaps, the hidden gem on the PlayStation 3’s PSN. Via miki800, of course.
