Link, Mario, and Luigi gear in Monster Hunter 4 ⊟
Nintendo’s partnered with a third-party publisher to drop its characters into yet another game — MonHun 4 hunters will be able to wear Link’s costume and equip his weapons/shield from Skyward Sword.
The game will also have a Mario & Luigi Collaboration Quest DLC, and allow Felynes to dress up as the plumbers. And oh my god that Yoshi pig, it’s too much.
Link, Luigi Nendoroid figures coming
Artwork for these two new figures appeared at Japan’s Wonder Festival Summer (via @charmwitch). I’m going to assume these are coming this year, what with the Year of Luigi and all.
PREORDER Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, upcoming games
Real Action Heroes Link
Did you get priced out of the Figma Link when US distribution was canceled? Well, now you have another chance to pay way too much for a Skyward Sword Link action figure, one that is even cooler IMO. Because of cloth.
This one comes with a sword, shield, bow, the MotionPlus scarab thing whose name I can’t remember, and other accessories like a -_- face and a SHAAAHHH face.
It’ll be released in Japan in November.
Thanks to Amazon’s preorder price guarantee, you’ll get the $5 off even if the price goes back up later. And if you’ve already reserved the game through the site, your order should automatically get the discount.
While you’re reading this, we also updated our releases page with today’s new downloadable games for portables — eShop totally went HAM this week. There’s a great Sakura Samurai deal too, for those who haven’t picked that one up yet.
PREORDER Animal Crossing: New Leaf (June 9), upcoming games
This can’t be the first time someone’s done this, right? I mean, this hack seems so obvious — of course someone would think to drop a Link sprite into Bomberman. It just makes sense, what with the green-capped hero’s penchant for bomb-laying.
In this case, Moejoe128 hacked Super Bomberman 2 Go for Pro Edition to offer Link as a playable character. He added a few other awesome features, too, like a Stage 1 option with edge tunnels that send you to the other side (like Pac-Man), varied speeds for kicking bombs, and more.

"Too Much Video Games?" by Louis Roskosch (click for a larger version). This unflattering illustration of a manboy Link is meant to broach "the dangers of playing too much video games", or something to that effect.
Louis just posted a short but fun comic that features The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It also has a bear in pajamas playing the game. So, check that out.
"Link, Chicken, Monster" by Jim Unwin (click for larger image). Made an impromptu rap while making this post and listening to some Ghostface: "Link in all green and black chuckin’, stressed chicken cluckin’, monster in the back creepin’ to attack like *blaow* with the club end."
Yeah, that just happened.
Vintage Link mask. I assume this came from one of those old costumes that consisted mostly of a vinyl smock with a picture of the character on it. I like to think about some kid running around on Halloween 1988 in this thing, looking like a creepy leprechaun in a muumuu, cutting his tongue on the mask’s mouth hole when he yells “trick or treat.” Actually, if you buy this thing from eBay, maybe you should give it a gentle disinfecting.
Can we make this the new standard mask for movie bank robbers?
"Cheat Shield" by Andrew Green (click for larger image). The artist is currently in "dire" need of some extra money right now, so if you like his work and want to send him some cash, you can commission Andrew for a $15 portrait of a character of your choosing.
This reminds me of a neat article at DS Fanboy several years ago about all the different shield designs used throughout the Legend of Zelda series. It wasn’t updated with the Spirit Tracks design, but you might still find the image collection kind of cool.
