A bundle of Harvest Moon plush toys ⊟

Too many for one hug! SOTA Toys is offering a bundle of five Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley toys. $90 gets you a chicken, an egg/chick, a cow, a dog in a red bandanna, and a panda. You’ve got to be like the Farm King to raise pandas.

You save $20 by buying them together versus separately, but if you just want one you can do that. 

You can also get the dog for free by buying the game from Natsume, or you can upgrade to the Premium Edition and get an exclusive bunny. And GameStop has its own version of the dog.

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.

Smash Bros. Wii U has a stage editor, board game mode ⊟
Thanks for the tip, Amazon’s game page! (And IntelliHeath!)

"Whether you’re creating stages on the GamePad, competing in challenges crafted by Master Hand and Crazy Hand, or outwitting your opponents in a brand new board game mode, there’s no doubt that the ultimate Smash Bros. game has arrived."

I mean, it hasn’t— it doesn’t come out until November 21— but, like, it will arrive soon. And it sounds P cool! A board game mode sounds like a nice way to emphasize the local multiplayer benefits of a console version.
The Wii U version also has a Zael trophy from The Last Story! It also looks like the twins from Fatal Frame 2 are in the home console game?

Gargoyle’s Quest games on VC in two weeks ⊟

Rad Arremer news now, as Nintendo reveals release dates for Demon’s Crest on Wii U and Gargoyle’s Quest 2 on both 3DS and Wii U. These hard-to-find spinoffs of the Ghosts ‘n Goblins games are both dang cool, with Gargoyle’s Quest 2 blending classic RPG style and 2D Hella Capcom action, and Demon’s Crest leaning more to the action side with a bit of RPG stuff.

Both are out on October 30! Spooooopy. Images via Mobygames and VGJunk!

Korg DSN-12 out October 23 and looks frickin’ cool ⊟

I don’t understand synthesizers or oscilloscopes, but it turns out I really like looking at them. Korg DSN-12 simulates an analogue synth with what it claim’s is the world’s first 3D oscilloscope display, which visualizes the sound of the 12 monophonic synths on the top screen of the 3DS. Man, I could watch waveforms dance around for hours. That was one of the best things about grad school for me.

The app will be out on eShop Oct. 23 for $37.

Tales of the World: Reve Unitia's preorder 3DS themes ⊟
Preorder the 3DS version of the mobile SRPG in Japan, and you get a download code for seven different 3DS Home Menu themes, including the one above (via Siliconera). 
I can see this happening a lot, since themes are relatively easy and cheap to produce. And it seems like a not-terrible idea! If you like a game enough to preorder it, you get a little extra decor for your 3DS to reflect it. Neato.
And if you don’t want to preorder anything, you don’t lose out on useful/important retailer-exclusive DLC. Even better!

I’m dead because of these Mega Man plushes ⊟

I saw the face on that Mega Man, and died. Man these things are cute. The small (6.7”) Mega Man, Rush, and Proto Man are available from J-List for $22 each;  the medium (9.8”) Mega Man is $35.

You can also get a new version of the coveted (by me in like 2009?) E-Tank energy drink!

Nintendo now accepting digital preorders ⊟
Surprise! Digital preorder buttons have appeared on some new Wii U and 3DS game pages at Nintendo’s official site, spotted by L~A. You can just click to buy the game, and either have it automatically download to your console (WHAT?) or get a code in your email when the game is out — you have the option of gifting that code to a friend, too!
You can do this for Super Smash Bros., Captain Toad, Fantasy Life, Pokemon Art Academy, Pokemon Omega Ruby, and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire.
I’m guessing that this is related to the eshop.nintendo.net website that surfaced mysteriously with no announcement. Service is still intermittent, but you can use that site to redeem eShop codes! 
I’m so excited about this. I use the web PlayStation Store exclusively. It’s so much nicer to shop and redeem codes on a computer rather than a touchscreen.
Of course, you don’t have to use these digital preorders at all. You’re so, so welcome to continue using our Amazon links.

Pokemon ORAS demo out on October 21 in North America ⊟

Warning: to get the “Special Demo Version” and battle Sceptile, Blaziken, and Swampert, you have to go to Pokemon.com and set up a Trainer Club Account by October 19, then get a code out of the newsletter. I know. There’ll be “other methods” but those haven’t been announced yet, and so far do not include just downloading it from the eShop like a normal person.

Other news: more Mega Pokes! Latios, Latias, Pidgeot, and Beedrill! New trailer (above!)

SRPG spinoff Hyperdevotion Noire on Vita next year ⊟

In early 2015, the Neptunia RPG series’ strategy spinoff, Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart, will come to Vita in North America and Europe. It stars Noire, the PlayStation-esque goddess, in a new alternate universe called “Gamarket.”

The turn-based battles are enhanced by a “Lily System” that sounds a lot like Fire Emblem: Awakening's supports, in which characters build bonds by fighting together, allowing them to activate special attacks and boosts.

I thought Idea Factory’s other recent SRPG, Monster Monpiece, was kinda fun, and this one doesn’t appear to have any rubbing! So it’s off to a better start already.
