"Diggin in the Carts," a show about retro game music ⊟

Apparently there’s something called “Red Bull Music Academy,” and it’s making this rad series with interviews of both young musicians and legendary game composers, like Hip Tanaka, whaaaaat! Here’s the trailer for episode 2, which runs Thursday. You can watch the first here!

Gaze into the eyes of Shiny Mega Gengar ⊟
He’s terrifying and magnificent all at once. You can add this guy to your Pokemon X and Y collection if you go into a US GameStop store between October 13 and Oct. 26. You can also buy a “Gengar Spirit Link” pack for the Pokemon TCG if you’re into the card game. It’s not as sparkly, I’ll warn you.
Then, from October 27-November 16, you can also get a Diancie, which can be Megafied through a stone found in Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire.

Super Smash Bros. vs. AKB48 ⊟

Nintendo cleverly uses the “Mii Fighter” character as a way to cross-promote Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, a game that is still called that, with Japanese idol army AKB48. I bet these Miis look just like the singers! (Also in Smash apparently: Fierce Deity Link and Pikmin's Alph)

Do you think there was internal competition or negotiation about who got to be the one trying to punch Mario in the video?

I was tempted to headline this post “48 new characters for Super Smash Bros.,” and I’m proud of myself for resisting.

You probably can’t get these amazing Sega items ⊟

The Mega Drive doll (with controllers for hands, oh my god) and the Game Gear pen case will be sold by Cospa at Tokyo Game Show 2014.

[Update: As Matty pointed out, they’re available to preorder at AmiAmi!]

I’m really enjoying the image of a journalist at TGS, conducting interviews, navigating the cramped show floor, and introducing themselves to executives… while awkwardly carrying around a giant Mega Drive. I totally would have been that guy. Via Miki800.

You can buy a Fire Emblem Falchion ⊟

Just in case you lost the genetic lottery that would have put you in line to inherit one, you can totally just buy a Falchion, as seen in Fire Emblem: Awakening, from HelloKnightmare.

It doesn’t have the extra strength against dragons, and, in fact, is made of wood, but other than that there’s nothing separating this blade from the one wielded by Ylissean royalty.

Panzer Dragoon, Suikoden musicians collaborate on “Journey” album ⊟
Brave Wave too strong.* The latest release, Journey, reunites AKANE, a band featuring Saori Kobayashi, composer of Panzer Dragoon games, and Yumiko Takahashi, known for Suikoden games. The album, featuring compositions from Crimson Dragon and new material, “incorporates Japanese folk vocals, synthesizers and traditional instruments.” It’s so rich, so beautifully orchestrated. I don’t know musical terms, but it’s definitely a trip into a rarely visited area of Sega World, and a stirring listen.
You can pre-order the album here, for release (as well as on iTunes and Spotify) September 29.
*Disclosure! Brave Wave Productions is a contributor to Club Tiny. Anyone reading my opinions on the company should be aware of that fact. I’d be telling you about their releases anyway, I assure you, but just so you know. In any case, you can evaluate independently by just listening to the stuff!

Rumor: Smash Bros. 3DS XLs in North America Sept. 19 ⊟
…before the game? Weird! Anyway, this Walmart flyer posted by Cosmic Dreams has red and blue 3DS XLs with the Smash cast on them (same design for Europe) out on that date, for $200. The usual caveats apply: I don’t know if this flyer is real, etc. 
Since it comes out before Smash, don’t expect a bundled copy of the game with this. I guess it’s like the Pokemon ones.

Another Gravity Rush figurine ⊟

Man, that game was so cool. And so is this figurine of Kat, by President Japan (!) It’s on J-List and Amiami, that I’ve seen so far, shipping in November. The colors are wayyyy less muted than the last figure.

The pose would be really awkward if it were meant to be standing; but Kat is almost always in some state of floating, which I didn’t actually put together as the reason for this pose for a good few seconds.

More new Fantasy Life footage ⊟

Including, like… a second of the “Origin Island” DLC. But this continues to look great! A lil’ action-RPG type stuff with friends sounds like just the thing right about now, not to mention all the other town activities.

Playing Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright right now, I laughed when I saw a red “!” pop up in this trailer. This is the Level-5-est thing.
