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.

Sega 3D Classics shirts ⊟

One of each, please! Well, maybe. I don’t know if I’ve got what it takes to pull off the all-over arcade art print, all dragon grimacing in my armpit. But I want to have what it takes. I would be a Sega 3D Classic.

These Space Harrier, Galaxy Force 2 and Altered Beast shirts are sold through the Japanese Geek Life store and will be available in April. It looks like the store ships outside of Japan…

Yessss, 3D Fantasy Zone coming out in Japan ⊟

The next 3D Classic from M2 is 3D Fantasy Zone: Opa Opa Brothers. As with the other (EXCELLENT) 3D Classics, this has a variety of display, gameplay, and even region options. 

A new mode accessible after completion of the game lets you play as Opa Opa’s brother Upa Upa, and lets you buy powerup items during the game, right from the touch screen.

The game comes out in Japan March 19! The second set of 3D Classics also includes After Burner 2, and probably some other stuff to be revealed later. Thanks, @jschwartzbauer!

Domino’s Japan’s Fire Emblem pizza ⊟

All right, so it’s a Tiger & Bunny tie-in and not related to the game, but let’s ignore that for just a moment – just one moment please – and read this description for what the restaurant is calling its “Fire Emblem” pizza:

"Girls love hot boys. Same with pizza. Try this pizza, the zingy heat of the jalapenos will surely get you hooked. And remember, you have to use your head and think about how you can enjoy every bite."

It’s perfect, Domino’s Japan. Just reuse the text if you ever do get the Nintendo license. Via @petitemistress!

Pretend animals are talking while you play Harvest Moon ⊟

That’s the messaging behind these Japanese ads for the new 3DS game, Harvest Moon: Connect to a New Land, and I couldn’t approve more. I want to play a game that lets me go hang out on a farm and stare at angora rabbits! I just want to stare at angora rabbits I guess.

Two more after the break!

Mighty Final Fight on Japanese 3DS VC ⊟

Chibi news now, as Capcom’s NES adaptation of Final Fight will be released on 3DS Virtual Console in Japan today. This game actually came out on NES in North America, so there is a localized version to bring over should Capcom decide to do so.

It’s not all good news out of Japan, however: King’s Knight is next week.

…okay, I like King’s Knight. I’m not ashamed.

Comic Studio turns your 3DS into a… comic studio ⊟
Dang! This 3DS drawing app is nuts! Comic Koubou (Comic Studio, via Siliconera) is an app for the Japanese 3DS that combines touchscreen drawing with built-in panel layout options, text balloons, sound effect and visual effect libraries.
The sample comics shown are super impressive! I mean, technology isn’t everything. You’re still probably going to need to know how to draw – which is what I come up against every time I get excited about, and buy, a DS/3DS art app. This comes out next week on the Japanese eShop for 800 yen.

Year of Luigi goods from Club Nintendo Japan ⊟

That 3DS XL case! Sure, it’s a bit late for a Year of Luigi tie-in item, but Luigi is in our hearts forever. It also comes with a puzzle – with a bunch of Luigis against a green background. Good luck with that!

Other new items on Japan’s Club Nintendo include a notebook and pen, and the Dr. Luigi cleaning cloth set. I’m a bit jealous of these, even if we do get that crazy Luigi’s Mansion diorama in the US.

PC Engine games on Japanese 3DS VC! ⊟
Yeah, they’ve been on Wii forever, but this is a big deal because of portability (welcome to Tiny Cartridge). On Christmas Day, the Japanese 3DS Virtual Console will see its first PC Engine (Turbografx-16) games!
Gradius and The Kung Fu (China Warrior, a pretty bad game that I love) will cost 600 yen each. Meanwhile, Wii U gets a different PC Engine game, Bonk’s Adventure, and the MSX version of Gradius! What?
Just last month I was telling people to support Konami’s Hudson releases on 3DS VC, specifically so they’d think about PCE/TG16 games. Yay!

Limited edition Mario 3DS LLs ⊟
Only 100 of these red/white and silver/black Mario 3DS LL systems will be distributed in Japan, and only to users of the Flet’s ISP. But I can’t let any new 3DS XL/LL go by without mention, of course. Not on our extremely “limited edition 3DS” focused site.
Not that these are exactly new – they were originally offered in China last year. I guess the release in another region makes more regions more likely? Maybe?
