Weirdest infinite Mario 1UP trick ever ⊟

Performed in level 5-2 of Super Mario Bros. 2 (Lost Levels). It involves passing through a couple of walls and disappearing into a pipe somehow? I’d love to try to replicate this.

Oh, do you want more weird 1UP videos in Super Mario Bros. 2? Because Games Haya has a playlist of nothing but that. Via Famicom no Neta.

New Dragon Quest X 3DS trailer ⊟

Still looks fantastic, and I still don’t trust that this is what the 3DS version will look like.

But wow, what is even going on in this game? Being a Japan-only MMO, I never dared follow the details of DQX, and after watching this I am super curious. A lot of running and jumping, and I guess a ship captain is there?

Tetris Ultimate on 3DS this fall ⊟

Ubisoft finally decided to tell us what we all kinda knew, that Tetris Ultimate would be out on 3DS in addition to consoles. While the other versions are out this summer, the 3DS release will come in the fall, with a “challenge mode” exclusive to 3DS.

"From disappearing Tetriminos to orientation-locked Tetriminos, be prepared for a variety of challenges that will test a player’s fortitude."

I can deal with that! I mean, I probably can’t, but I want to try.

GTD with Isabelle ⊟

I love these Isabelle/Animal Crossing-themed to-do lists from IkaBoushi. Reese is also there, in case you need to clean out your house (something I’ve been doing a lot of lately!) For $3.50 (before shipping and handling), you can get 12 Isabelles, 12 Reeses, or 6 of each.

Super Famicom pouches for PS Vita 2000 ⊟

So far, they’re only on Amazon Japan (via Miki800); hopefully they’ll end up on Play-Asia soon for accessibility. While it might seem weird to have cross-retro-pollination with a Nintendo theme on a Sony console accessory, back around the Super Famicom days they almost became the same thing

Get out of my dreams, get into my Fennecar ⊟

Toyopet vehicles shown by Toyota at the Tokyo Toy Show. Really cute, though I don’t know how effective Pikachu’s lil’ snout is as a bumper.

Love Hz • Pop Ramen

Pop Ramen is the new album by Love Hz, a supergroup made up of Austin bands Chalkboards and hashtagyoloswag. With its combination of chip melodies and live guitar/drums/ukulele(?), this is an Album for JC.

Fun fact about me: I need a constant supply of upbeat melodic pop-rock or I will die.

Etrian Odyssey IV Imperial figure ⊟

By Kotobukiya, shipping in November for 5184 yen ($50ish). This is really nice and detailed, and makes me realize that the chibi-esque character art in the games has a lot more going on than I notice… Via Siliconera.

Gunvolt out August 20 in Japan ⊟

Woo! Azure Striker Gunvolt, the 3DS action game by Inti Creates, will release to Japan’s eShop on August 20 for ¥1960 yen (about $20) — no release date for the West yet other than “Summer”. I did not realize it was that close to being finished. I guess I imagined an extended Mighty No. 9 type situation.

Here’s what Natural Doctrine looks like ⊟

Last time I posted about this game, it was focused on the limited edition, leaving some to wonder what the actual gameplay for the PS3/4/Vita strategy game looked like. It’s… a lot of text! A lot. 

Luckily NISA released these English screens, making the text at least legible. They’ve also opened the website.

Marth looks different… ⊟
This mysterious pink puffball in the mask… could it really be the legendary hero Marth? But… isn’t that also Marth standing next to him? Gods, I’m so confused! The image are via these Famitsu scans. Note the lack of visible feet!
Okay, that’s a lot of Marth. I can’t account for the mystery pink Marth, but Lucina seems to be somewhat clone-like in play compared to OG Marth, which Masahiro Sakurai explains in this translated column:

"Lucina uses the same techniques as Marth, a fighter with whom I’m sure most of you are already familiar. I even went so far as to make their strength, speed, and special attacks almost identical.
However, what sets Lucina apart is the fact that the strength of her attacks is uniform along the blade. Marth’s playstyle emulates the elegant swordplay of a fencer by dealing more damage when he strikes with the tip of his blade, but the damage Lucina deals is evened out. Thus, I think Lucina will be much easier than Marth for novice players to play with.”

He says tweaked characters like that play differently enough to earn their own slot, unlike simple alternate costumes like Wii Fit trainer. “When two such similar characters function in an even slightly different manner, I give them a separate spot on the roster since that will affect battle records and whatnot.”

Senran Kagura producer Kenichiro Takaki muses about Life ⊟
The screencap comes from this… let’s call it NSFW video. It’s pretty reprehensible, but at the same time I think it’s hilarious that so many people put so much work into such a terrible joke?
