Link’s Mario Kart bike is baller AF ⊟
Dubbed “The Master Cycle”, the bike will be one of the new vehicles included in the Mario Kart 8 DLC pack releasing next month. That $8 pack will include three characters (Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, and Link), four Vehicles (Blue Falcon cart!), and eight courses (including an F-Zero stage!).
The Animal Crossing karts and characters will release with the second Mario Kart 8 DLC pack coming out in May 2015.
Want to preview the 3DS’s Home menu themes? ⊟
Nintendo has posted video previews for all of the 3DS Home menu themes in Japan, showing off the background music, icons, and cute animations when you’re scrolling through apps/games. The Yokai Watch/Jibanyan theme is too good.

Monster Hunter 4G has Animal Crossing in it because this is the world we live in now ⊟
Sonic and Taiko Drum Master being in the new Monster Hunter wasn’t enough for you? Here, have Isabelle and Resetti from Animal Crossing: New Leaf because that’s what we do now. That’s what’s going on.
Apparently these are Felyne outfits that will be given out in Japan as part of a 7-11 promotion, according to Japanese 3DS. Who knows how this will be promoted if/when it comes to the West.
I can’t imagine many of you don’t have a copy of this yet, but the deal’s on Amazon if you’ve put off buying New Leaf. And if you do already have the game, enjoy this photo of Isabelle getting ready for her Mario Kart debut with a Lego car, posted by Tanaka the Movie.
Dress up as Link/maybe-not-Link ⊟
Was that Link? Zelda? Someone else? I’m still confused. Whoever that was in the new Legend of Zelda Wii U trailer, you can dress up as them in Animal Crossing: New Leaf thanks to this outfit posted by Michaela.
Not sure what the Nooks did to piss off Isabelle ⊟
But whatever it was, it must have been serious! Maybe Lloid can set up a campaign to fund a new Nookling Junction.

TinyCast 27! Our latest episode is a post-Game Developers Conference chat about Animal Crossing, Koji Igarashi leaving behind Konami and Castlevania, and how awesome the GBA was. Turns out it was really awesome.
How Animal Crossing’s creepy sheep came to life ⊟
The minds behind Animal Crossing: New Leaf gave a wonderful presentation at the Game Developers Conference about how creating a diverse team — nearly half of the group, led by co-director Aya Kyogoku, were women — helped produce a super successful title with broad appeal. Nintendo has sold over 7.3 million copies, and around 18% of 3DS owners bought the game.
Along with promoting diversity in its team, the group encouraged all of its members to submit their ideas for what to include in New Leaf. That’s why some of the concept images for characters here looks like straight-up DeviantArt uploads. Shout-outs to that corner piece for the sectional sofa, though — that joint changed the game, for real. No shout-outs to Pietro, the terrifying clown sheep. Get out of here, man.

Dig up Animal Crossing cushions ⊟
Not sure why anyone would want a pitfall, but I’m so down with the Animal Crossing: New Leaf fossil cushion. It has Blathers and Celeste on the other side, while the pitfall has Isabelle and whatever her brother’s name is, I forget. The one who just stands outside in a raincoat and stares at you.
NCSX has these great cushions shipping in June, for $20.90.
Pokemon XY, ACNL's stages in Smash 3DS ⊟
Neat, it’s Lumiose City! Hopefully this is the post-patch version. I’m not sure if this is a 3DS-exclusive stage for the new Smash Bros., but the game’s director Masahiro Sakurai did provide this comment on the level: “The Prism Tower rises above Lumiose City. Up until a few seconds ago, the fighters were brawling on top of that tower.”
This Animal Crossing: New Leaf stage, though, is 3DS-only (the Wii U version has City Folk's Smashville). Sakurai offered these details on Tortimer Island: “On this stage, fighters are randomly placed on a different island layout every time they visit.” Hopefully they cleared all the wharf roaches.
Happy New Year, Isab- ⊟
Don’t forget to drop into your Animal Crossing: New Leaf town tonight and pick up your Sparkling Cider from Isabelle. Credit to Birthday Town for the pic.
Are you going to count down the new year with Crazy Redd and the gang? Who are you hoping to kiss when the clock strikes midnight? Hugh? Or Lloid if you’re lucky?! Maybe even sneak a smooch from Reese when Cyrus isn’t looking?
