Donatello and Raphael Game Boy Colors ⊟

There’s a TMNT NES in there, too — all of this custom hardware comes from Doyle Dean, who is selling the pieces and many others on Etsy.

So we have these Donatello and Raphael GBCs, and we saw that Donatello Game Boy last month… I haven’t seen a Leonardo one yet, but  here’s a Michelangelo Game Boy from one of our talented readers, Matt Quinton:

I wish the NES 3DS XL looked like this ⊟
As much as I love the packaging for the upcoming NES 3DS XL, the actual design on the GameStop-exclusive system (an NES controller slapped on the lid) is disappointing, especially when you compare it to the NES GBA SP or Japan’s Famicom-colored systems.
Kungfuquickness agreed and created this alternative by sanding down a blue 3DS, spray painting it silver, and adding details reminiscent of the 8-bit console. You can follow his instructions to create your own NES 3DS here.
If you’d rather stick with something that doesn’t require any effort beyond taking your credit card out, the NES 3DS XL is up for preorder, as are the limited edition Smash Bros. and Persona Q systems.

Nintendo of America announced three (!) special edition 3DS XLs today! The Smash Bros. system releases in red and blue on September 19, the NES edition hits on October 10, and the Persona Q portable comes out on November 25.

Please note that all of them are priced at $199.99 and do not include a bundled game, even though two of them are branded with specific titles. Also, all of them will be exclusive to GameStop. Ughhhhhhhhhhh.

Arya Stark and other teens react to the NES ⊟

Oh, these sweet summer children, with their 1080p consoles and their backwards hats and their confusing Link with Sonic the Hedgehog. As if the “Kids React to Game Boy” video wasn’t mortifying enough.

TEENAGERS. But, hey, it’s the actress who plays Arya Stark in the Game of Thrones TV series, playing Super Mario Bros. That’s pretty neat.

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.

Whoa, a new infinite 1-up trick for Super Mario Bros. ⊟

It’s E3 week, so expect lots of news from the bleeding edge of video game technology, like this amazing 1-up trick in Super Mario Bros., by S Haya (via Famicom no Neta). I can’t imagine the combination of virtuoso-level playing, tool-assisted replaying, and ingenuity that led someone to finally hit upon this method. Skip to 2:40 to see it in action!

Here’s how it works: start a two-player game in “hard mode,” die as Mario in 1-2, get to 5-2 as Luigi, die to a Hammer Bro while climbing a hidden vine, drop back into 1-2 as Mario, climb the bugged vine, and smack Buzzy Beetles a million times for easy 1-ups. Famicom no Neta’s Google-translated post calls this technique “violent buttocks.”

The best part is that if you have the skill to pull this thing off, you definitely don’t need any extra lives.

Analogue Nt: more information ⊟

I think everybody had questions about the Analogue Nt, the high-end luxury NES/Famicom system we posted yesterday. Analogue put up a FAQ that answers… some of them!

First off, the chipset inside, which ensures such excellent compatibility, is an actual Famicom! “We were able to procure a large quantity of HVC-001 Famicom systems that were in cosmetically undesirable unsellable condition. The plastic enclosure of the HVC-001 systems are notoriously yellowed, brittle and damaged. While the poor enclosure quality left these systems undesirable and sitting on a shelf, fortunately the CPU and PPU inside remain untouched and fully functional.”

Analogue has also refurbished controllers, adding NES-style connectors to Famicom pads and cleaning up NES pads for sale. In addition, “We were able to find a sizable quantity of brand new OEM NES controllers (likely the last in the world) and we have them available for sale in limited quantities.” Holy crap!

According to the FAQ, one weak point may be PAL compatibility, as “it uses the NTSC 60 Hz PPU versus the PAL 50 Hz PPU.” 

I’m probably going to keep posting about this thing, as an alternative to buying one.

Analogue Nt NES/Famicom system up for pre-order ⊟

Analogue has opened pre-orders for its Nt, the Famicom/NES device with RGB output, four controller ports, and purported “unparallelled” compatibility with American and Japanese games and accessories. “The Analogue Nt is region free, equipped with the original NES controller ports, and even has the original Famicom Expansion port. All with no emulation.”

If I can use my NES Max with Japanese games, or get weird Fami accessories and play US games with them… man, that’s exciting. The Famicom 3-D glasses in the picture are a nice demonstration. And RGB output sounds nice. 

Here’s the thing, though. This ultimate compatibility and beautiful hardware design means a premium price. The Nt is $500, and that’s before you change the hardware color or add accessories.

Analogue Interactive’s high-end aluminum Famicom/NES ⊟
Analogue Interactive, the company behind the gorgeous wooden Neo Geo systems, is doing something I’ve never seen before: a luxury NES/Famicom. The Analogue Nt is being put forward as an NES for “audiophiles” and “videophiles,” the “highest quality way to experience the NES and Famicom.”
And no, I don’t know what that means! I do know that it has four controller ports and a case built out of a solid piece of aluminum, along with hardware custom engineered by Analogue.
We’ll find out more when the company releases details at the end of the month. Being neither an engineer nor an audio/video-phile, I can’t speak to the meaning of a higher-end output of NES games, but I do think this thing looks cool and will be worth following up on.

NES Rygar modded into God of War game ⊟

With a new title screen, a new character sprite, and some edited text, Rygar, a story about a dead soldier from “Argos” with a chain weapon dealie, becomes God of War. You can download the patch here thanks to pacnsacdave.

I didn’t realize it until after seeing this mod, but God of War in general bears a resemblance to the PS2 Rygar game, huh? I don’t think that Rygar game was good enough to be much of an inspiration, but they cover kinda similar ground.

And now help me out: Eric said he wasn’t much into NES Rygar, but I regard it as a beloved classic. Am I addled by nostalgia?

PPCC (GO! GO! DESTROY! RMX.)

Shoujo Chiptune Punk — that’s the music genre listed on Facebook for Slime Girls, a.k.a. Pedro Silva. I’ve had slimegirlsmusic on my mind and playing on my speakers a lot lately.

This particular tune is a Famitracker/NES joint that remixes "PPCC" by Japanese idol group BiS. It makes me feel like I’m painted in 256 vibrant colors, decked out in omocat threads and bouncing around in a probertson GIF.

It makes me feel larger than life, or at least larger than the size limit for animated image uploads — like there’s no way you could post me on Tumblr unless you cut two-thirds of the frames, filtered out every trace of cyan and magenta, and dithered the entire scene to all hell.

It’s almost two years old, but go back and listen to Slime Girls’ Vacation Wasteland EP.

Comparing movie scenes & their NES counterparts ⊟

These are part of a series John “Brother Brain” McGregor and Low Interest are running in which they contrast in-game graphics from licensed NES games with the iconic movie scenes they were based on. In these cases, the games are Sunsoft’s Batman, Bethesda’s Home Alone, and Acclaim’s Predator. If the GIFs look a little janky for those viewing this on the site with our gallery’s auto-resizer, just click the shots to see the original versions.
