Stop it, Inazuma Eleven GO ⊟
You are too much, and at this rate you’re never going to release in the States. Credit to Loof for the pic — she’s posting tons of photos from her playthrough of Inazuma Eleven GO: Shadow. Check out this team full of players with Sci-Fi-related names.

Save $100 on limited edition Gold/Xerneas 3DS XL ⊟
This beautiful import system, originally sold exclusively through Japan’s Pokemon Center locations, is available for just $199.99 at Play-Asia right now — a steep discount from its typical $299.99 tag. That’s not too much more than what you would pay for an XL you’d buy locally!
It’s available with both Pokemon X and Y bundles at that price for a limited time. S/O to NintendoTweet for spotting. If you’d rather import a system that can play U.S. games, don’t forget that Play-Asia is also selling this Mario White 3DS XL right now.

Three minutes of Tales of the World: Reve Unitia ⊟

In case you, like me, forgot that there’s a new Tales game coming to 3DS, here’s a trailer for the SRPG that will release in Japan this October. Lots of characters in this clip from previous Tales games!

Mario White 3DS XL for US region ⊟
Well, all right. It’s not FOR the US region, but it is compatible with the US region. I spotted a weird listing on Play-Asia the other day for this “Mario White” 3DS XL, with copies of New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, shipping in July. It specifically said it was US region compatible… I thought the whole thing was a mistake. 
But apparently not. NintendoTweet mentioned that it was actually being released in Southeast Asia (which uses the same region code as us for 3DS) by Maxsoft, the Nintendo distributor in that area. And this Yahoo article has confirmation from Maxsoft. 
So yeah, looks like you can order yourself a really cool, previously China-only Mario White 3DS XL (that comes with an old-ass soccer game) and play your US games on it.

Retro Waterproof Case for PS Vita ⊟

Hey, this makes your Vita look like a Game Boy! It also makes it… waterproof…

It’s $13.99 from Play-Asia, if you want to play some Spelunky in a nice bath and oh man I was joking but actually that sounds really great.

10 shots of Final Fantasy Explorers ⊟

Crystal Monster Hunter Chronicles is looking nice in these screens posted on the 3DS RPG’s official Japanese site. Famitsu mentioned the game will have about 20 classes, including the usual Final Fantasy jobs: Knight, Monk, White Mage, Blck Mage, Red Mge, time Mage, Dragon Knight, Paladin, Thief, Ninja, and Bard, according to the translated report from Gematsu.

The site adds these notes:

"Players can assign a maximum of eight abilities to each button for use in battle. While the game itself looks like Monster Hunter, Famitsu describes it as feeling like a ‘lite’ version of Final Fantasy XIV or i. Character positioning is important, and an ability chaining system is also being implemented.

Once mastered, job-specific abilities can be used within other jobs. Ability costs vary depending on which job a given character currently has. A Black Mage, for example, will have black magic costs halved.”

The game is expected to last 100-200 hours. No word on a Western release — no surprise, considering we don’t have a time frame for its Japanese debut.

Nintendo Game Seminar games on Wii U eShop in Japan ⊟

Takashi Tezuka, General Manager of EAD Software Development Department, announced on Miiverse the release of four games from the 2013 edition of the Nintendo Game Seminar, all on the Wii U eShop (in Japan).

Nintendaan broke down the four games in translation. Poppo Hunter is a “hunting game” in which you help a pigeon find a wife, using the Wii Remote? Hissatsu! Center Heroes is a game about sentai-style heroes battling to get into the center of a photo. Shima Nagami lets you guide Cloud-kun around a beautiful island, picking up items along the way. And Sento Danchi is a tower defense thing about protecting a spaceship.

They’re all available through a single download of a Game Seminar app (again, only in Japan). I really wish I could play these, if for no other reason than to see how “Nintendo” these student projects feel.

Is anyone else as fascinated by the Game Seminar as I am?

Hyrule Warriors' Japanese “Treasure Box” is just that ⊟

In fact, not only is it a box of treasure, it includes one, that makes little Zelda sound effects. It also comes with a Triforce clock and a scarf. It’s 14,904 yen ($146) at Amazon.

Really, the part of this package that would give me pause is the, uh, Musou game included. Even that’s looking pretty good, though!

Final Fantasy Explorers announced for 3DS ⊟
Square Enix purportedly revealed this new title in the latest issue of Jump (scan via @FarmboyInJapan). We don’t know much about it, other than the game is a multiplayer action RPG. It looks like a Final Fantasy/Crystal Chronicles-ish take on Monster Hunter? So far, it’s only announced for Japan.

Gametech’s Trigger Assist 3D LL ⊟

"Ugh, the L and R buttons on the 3DS are way too small and compact!" is something I’ve never thought.

But if you have, Gametech is here to help! These things are out next week in Japan. I guess I’ve seen things like this for console controllers, for FPS stuff? Not sure what you’d do with them on a 3DS. But I like looking at them.

Famicom, Super Famicom, and PC Engine in a single console ⊟
Retron 5 is pretty cool and all, but it lacks a screen of its own. And it can’t play PC Engine games. And it’s not a weird tower thing, like this contraption spotted on Yahoo! Auctions by Famicom no Neta.
I adore this thing, but probably not enough for a starting bid of 25,000 yen ($246).
