Whoa, 3D OutRun has two new songs in it ⊟
Not sure why, but M2 went ahead and added new music (and a new car?) to the 3D Classics version of OutRun, coming out April 23 in Japan: “Cruising Line” by Manabu Namiki and “Camino a Mi Amor” by Jane-Evelyn Nisperos.
There’s also… a new car, three different simulated cabinets, four screen modes, totally remappable controls, replay saving (with multi-speed playback), mid-race saving, customizable volume for game audio, engine noise and ambient arcade machine sound…
This is deluxe even for Sega 3D Classics! M2 has OutDone itself.

I’m angry about how cool this Princess Peach Wiimote Plus is ⊟
I definitely don’t need any more Wii Remotes, but the new Princess Peach Wii Remote Plus is too, too good. Like when the Mario and Luigi versions came out, I’m upset by how tempted I am to drop $40 on one of these when they hit stores later this month.
I love how the blue buttons suggest her earrings and brooch! And the d-pad is her crown.
Now I wait as people clamor for a Toad Wiimote they don’t actually want, just out of some semi-OCD need to complete the Super Mario Bros. 2 cast.
Conception 2’s Classmating seems innocent, but the rest of the game… ⊟
Despite being about creating babies with your high school classmates, Conception 2 is surprisingly chaste in regards to its signature feature. “Classmating” is successfully portrayed as totally innocent and nonsexual, at least in the couple of hours I’ve played.
Which makes it so much more jarring when the game gets bawdy elsewhere.
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.
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.
Freedom Wars, Soul Sacrifice Delta, Oreshika 2 coming to North America ⊟
Woo Freedom Wars! The Gravity Rush team’s new game (actually, Sony says, a collaboration between “JAPAN Studio, Shift and Dimps”) will be out this year, with eight-player online coop and a weird single-player story about fighting monsters to reduce your million-year prison sentence.
Also coming over, according to today’s announcement: Soul Sacrifice Delta on May 13, and Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, “an RPG in which you take charge of an ancient Japanese clan that have been cursed with a maximum lifespan of just 2 years.” This Alfa System-developed sequel has players controlling multiple generations. Neat!

Objection! shirt by Maximo Lorenzo ⊟
It comes with a little attorney’s badge button! Nice touch, Fangamer. Of course, if you want a more realistic fake attorney’s badge, they’ve got you covered. It should get you all the respect given to defense attorneys in the game.
Pokemon chopsticks: gotta pinch em all ⊟
I think these Pokemon chopsticks available on J-List are pretty cute, and might be a good way to encourage a kid to learn to use chopsticks (mine aren’t yet at the age for chopsticks, or utensils, or Pokemon).
Mostly, I like that the three available options are Pikachu, Charmander, and… Snorlax. How random! Does that mean that some kids’ favorite Pokemon is the one who sleeps constantly and gets in the way? That’s actually pretty cool.
"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?)

Now compare that sentiment with these screenshots Nintendo released of Ms. Aguilera:
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.
Kunios gonna Kunio.
I’m down to Smash some Cat Heroes ⊟
This new 3DS eShop game by Tom Create looks kinda dumb, but in the best way. Smash Cat Heroes is like a Dynasty/Samurai Warriors game, but 2D and starring cat versions of sengoku-era warriors. So basically hammering on the B button unleashes huge combos against cat enemies! And special moves that go “shoosh” and “argh!”
This will be out April 17, for $4. And speaking of small games on eShop, there’s a sale on G-Style games starting April 12, and I recommend checking out Crazy Construction. There’s a demo!
