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!)

PlayStation TV launches today ⊟
It’s a big day for Vita, and not just because the PlayStation TV lets you play its games on a big screen! In addition to the console (available for $100 or in a $140 bundle with a Dual Shock 3, 8GB memory card, and The Lego Movie Videogame), lots of other stuff is out today:
Minecraft
Two-player fantasy fencing duel game Nidhogg (OH MAN)
The PlayStation Now streaming service goes into open beta on PS Vita and PS TV, allowing (paid) access to a bunch of PS3 games
Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus is also happening
It’s a pretty dang crazy day for Vita stuff! And that’s after last week’s launches of Strider 2, Vib-Ribbon, and Pix the Cat, among other stuff…

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.

Tetris Ultimate is cheaper on eShop for some reason ⊟

When it launches in North America November 11 (Vita and other versions coming later in the winter), Tetris Ultimate will cost $29.99 at retail and $19.99 on the 3DS eShop. I wonder why?

I mean, I don’t wonder why it’s cheaper on eShop, since there’s no manufacturing, printing, or shipping of boxes involved with a digital release. I wonder why every other game isn’t cheaper on eShop. (Remember when PSN versions of Vita games were cheaper?)

Actually, I don’t even wonder that. Publishers would wreck their relationships with retailers if every game was cheaper through a first-party download store.

Anyway, it’s cool to have a discount on this one game!

Preorder the New 3DS Smash Bros. Cover Plate ⊟
The rad white/grey Super Smash Bros. 3DS Cover Plate is now up for preorder at Play-Asia, for $17.99. It ships November 8 and would look quite nice on a New 3DS, if you have one of those. If you don’t have a New 3DS, it would look nice, uh… on your shelf? Your wall? I don’t know. Maybe just get one of these if you have or plan to get a New 3DS.

Captain Toad plushes ⊟

Definitely the most huggable person I’ve seen wielding a pickaxe. Amiami will ship two different Captain Toad plush dolls (sitting, and standing w/turnip and pickaxe) in December.

Yes, one of them is sitting and the other one is standing. It’s kind of hard to tell the difference without legs. Via @farmboyinjapan.

No More Heroes t-shirts! In 2014! ⊟

Hooray! Thanks to the new Rising Star Store, you can buy a shirt with the tiger icon from No More Heroes. The US shop isn’t open, but the EU shop will totally ship US residents one of those or the "Travis Strikes Again" shirt also seen here.

I haven’t played either No More Heroes game in a couple of years. I both want to and don’t: I remember them as being just on the razor’s edge between “dumb” and “subversively clever” and I don’t want to go back and find out if they’re just dumb.

First Xeodrifter trailer ⊟

This looks really cool! The tiny pixel guy! The dashing-into-Mutant Mudds-background stuff! It’s like… Super Metroid meets the non-tank bits of Blaster Master?

Minecraft for Vita out next week ⊟

It’ll be on PSN in North America October 14, and in Europe October 15. The game costs $20/€18.99/£12.99… unless you own the PS3 version already, in which case it costs nothing! Cross-Buy has your back. You also get access to the PS3 version for buying the Vita version (a PS4 version costs an extra $5).

If you prefer, you can wait until November 11 (November 19 in most of Europe, November 21 in UK and Ireland) and buy a retail version. It can be tricky to find new retail Vita games in stores — they seem to have mostly stopped refreshing their stock at around Call of Duty — but I guarantee Minecraft will be stocked.

Harvest Moon, Ace Attorney Trilogy dated ⊟

Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley will be out in the U.S. on November 4, Natsume announced today (available to preorder or $30). From the PR:

In Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, players will have to discover why the Lost Valley is cursed in a perpetual winter. With the Harvest Goddess nowhere to be found, and the Harvest Sprites locked away, it’s up to the player – an unlikely farmer who was caught unexpectedly in one of the Lost Valley’s fierce snowstorms – to discover the source of this curse, and bring the seasons back to the Lost Valley!

It’s… a story… of seasons.

In other news, the digital-only Ace Attorney Trilogy will be out December 9, according to reports out of NYCC. 

These two games have nothing to do with one another aside from having release dates announced at the same time!
