Tiny Cartridge 3DS

Okamiden Face Pouch, Postcard Set, and Mug with Lid, being re-released by e-Capcom in February. These items were all adorable upon their original 2010 releases, but they’re attainably adorable now, as NCSX is taking pre-orders on all three.

Now, post-Christmas, you can celebrate a different baby god! In a totally secular, buying-stuff kinda way.

BUY Okamiden

I was just talking about how rare Okamiden deals seemed to be, and Amazon proves me wrong by making it the Deal of the Day again. This time, it’s even cheaper, at $17.64.

Oh well, I don’t mind being wrong when the result is a cute game for cheap. It’s loooooong, too, so that $18 purchase will last you a while.

I’m surprised Okamiden has held its price as well as it has, having been at the $30 mark since its release just over a year ago. You can at least get a temporary discount on it, as Amazon has dropped the price of the action-adventure game to $19.99 for today only.

If you’d like to read more about Okamiden, I happen to have this Joystiq review right here.

If you’re way, way jealous of the people who picked up adorable, huggable Chibiterasu dolls and pillows at PAX East, now you can resolve that jealousy with a simple act of commerce. Capcom is selling limited quantities (about 100) of the plush doll and the pillow on its online store.

If you don’t get one of these, Capcom says SOTA Toys is working on another production run, which is available for pre-order from their site now. Jonathan Bilski from Things To Do In LA, however, warns that the SOTA version might be noticeably less cute.

Okami art DS Lite skin (click for a larger image). I rarely like any of these cheap, custom decals as most of them are tacky, but this design on a black system looks really slick. I didn’t even notice it was a skin at first!
On the Amazon product page for this sticker, I also spotted these limited edition Okamiden Silly Bandz.

Okamiden bento by AnnaTheRed. Look at that adorable sleeping Chibiterasu! He’s all red pepper, seaweed, and hanpen, and how is this possible.
Keep that cute, cute Chibiterasu image in your mind as you read my Joystiq review. It’s a positive review, but not so positive that it’ll satiate fanboys, so I’m nervous. Of course, I’m nervous when my reviews are too positive, or too negative, or too middling, or basically just when they’re on the internet.

Okamiden's launch trailer. Between all the 3DS news lately and the meh-ish impressions I've heard from people about this, I totally forgot Okamiden releases this week.

Perhaps the entire Okami series is doomed to this sort of inattention — an Okami release approaches, fans long to play it on a newer system with controls/features that seem more adequate, then no one buys the damn thing.

Okamiden calendar wallpaper. Man, look at those adorable baby seahorse dragon things! Like Capcom USA, Capcom Japan is releasing classy wallpaper images — however, instead of meting them out one at a time, you can just download all three from the official Japanese website

The Japanese image for March uses the same art as the American image for December, so… I don’t know what the deal is here, calendar-wise.

Okamiden wallpapers. Capcom is releasing wallpaper images monthly, roughly coinciding with the Chinese zodiac. I didn’t even know the Chinese zodiac associated months with animals! Restaurant placemats failed to teach me that information. Thanks for the free education, Capcom!

The zodiac/calendar wallpaper is available in multiple sizes from Capcom-Unity. In addition, the less educational character wallpaper can be found on Facebook.

NCSX has the e-Capcom exclusive Chibiterasu face mug, revealed earlier this week, available for pre-order for a heartbreaking $50 (due to the terrible exchange rate and some kind of special costs associated with getting stuff from e-Capcom). If you need a mug, and you need it to look like a wolf god, there you go. 

More importantly, the retailer is offering the Chibiterasu face slippers, featuring two fluffy, soft, smiling Chibiterasus that look up at you every time you take a step. I wish I’d never seen them, because now I feel their absence from my life. I’d want to hug my own feet all the time. They’re … $66 …

Okamiden fanart by Diana, part of another Capcom contest. The style makes Chibiterasu look kind of ethereal, as opposed to just a cute, decorated puppy. Not that there’s any problem with cute puppies. I don’t want rumors going around that we’re anti-puppy, because it just isn’t so.

Okamiden's U.S. and JP boxarts compared, preorder items revealed. If you reserve this DS follow-up to Okami through GameStop, you’ll receive a paintbrush stylus and screen cleaner when it releases this March 15th.

And if you already have enough branded bonuses accumulated from six years of Nintendo DS purchases, you can probably pick it up from Amazon without all that stuff and for a buck or two cheaper.

Capcom is also running a contest in which you can win Okamiden, a Nintendo 3DS (!), Chibiterasu plushies, and more when you try out its Goblin Mask Facebook app.
