New Super Mario Bros. 2 diorama.
This papercraft project was included in the October issue of Official Nintendo Magazine, which you’d think would limit access only to people who are both in the UK and time travelers (so, The Doctor).
However! It’s been scanned and posted here, so you can make your own wall of gold. The game wasn’t my favorite, but this is some neat art.
Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove figure, artwork, and papercraft. The figure, sadly, is a one-off, produced as a prototype for a potential UFO Catcher toy. It was posted on the Japanese site for the series, with some lamentations about its unreleased status.
The “Sorry” artwork was posted as an apology for the delay of the Japanese version of the WiiWare Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove: Monster Mix. While the game is out in North America, it won’t arrive in Japan until August 23.
Finally, the papercraft … is available right here! Enjoy!

Pikachu papercraft, available as an early purchase bonus with the 3DS Super Pokemon Rumble. If you go to one of the participating Japanese retailers on this list, you’ll get that adorably spheroid Pikachu kit, along with some AR markers for new Pokemon in Pokedex 3D, and some codes for new Pokemon in Rumble.
If you do happen to be in Japan and purchase the game, it would be really nice if the papercraft template happened to fall onto your scanner. Just saying.
Full-size papercraft Travis Touchdown by Instructables user ddi7i4d. Not only did the papercraft artist design, cut, fold, and glue a 1.86 meter paper model of the protagonist from No More Heroes, he did so based on a 3D model he created himself. I don’t know why he didn’t just rip one from the game, but then I’m a little foggy on why he took it upon himself to make this giant papercraft in the first place!
As for why he posted a detailed Instructable about its creation, with all the necessary files to create your own, the guide is an entry in a contest through which the site is giving away a laser cutter. That’s sort of like a beam katana! A stationary beam katana that could probably still kill a guy.
Game Boy papercraft packing slips and buttons included with orders of 2 Player Productions’ chiptune documentary Reformat the Planet (click for a larger version).
Cubeecraft’s Christopher Beaumont and Fangamer’s Jon Kay designed the slips, and one of two versions is included with each DVD order: a “classic” Game Boy and a modded system with a badass blue backlight.
Papercraft for Beemo, that adorable and portable video game console you’ll often see pop up in Adventure Time. It can walk around! It can even talk! And it also plays funky titles like Adventure Masters (with Bit.Trip-esque graphics and dueling Abraham Lincolns) and Bug Battle.
Did you see last Monday’s new half-episode, in which Donny (the jerk) breaks one of Beemo’s controllers? Man, I was pissed. Let’s see how long this clip stays up:
In the video, you’ll hear that Beemo has a Korean female’s voice (likely the same voice actress as Lady Rainicorn); knowing it’s a Korean handheld somehow makes the made-up console even more interesting! I wonder if she’s related to Tiny at all? He’s mentioned to us before that he’d love to visit Korea one day…
Oh yeah, you can download a template for the Beemo papercraft designed by Bryan Green at this link.
Zangief papercraft from Street Fighter EX. I was sure I’d posted this wonderful papercraft before, but I couldn’t find the old post. Regardless, I wouldn’t want to deprive you of the opportunity to save this in your folder of papercraft projects you plan to get to someday.

Create your own (paper) Nintendo 3DS! Philipp Stollenmayer has posted a papercraft template you can download and fold into your very own 3D handheld system. Sure, it won’t actually play any games, but you don’t have to wait for this one to hit stores, and it’s probably much cheaper than the 3DS’s eventual price. Also, I hear the battery life on this thing is phenomenal.

Commander Video in perler beads, in the kitchen (I think), by Snild Dolkow. I’m starting to really dig on the idea of surrounding myself with various images of the rainbow-trailing Bit.Trip star — in official wall decal, papercraft, and now bead sprite form.
This seems like an appropriate place to put a reminder of tonight’s Bit.Trip-themed party in Los Angeles! Be there or be antialiased!

3.5ft tall Viewtiful Joe papercraft by Taras Lesko. Wow! Check out how color-coordinated his living room is, what with the red chairs, ottoman, lampshade, artwork, and window treatments (with some gold, to match the pillow). Oh, and the papercraft is kind of cool, too.
While Lesko hasn’t uploaded a template for creating your own giant model of the Capcom hero, he’s posted a free PDF of the Viewtiful Joe helmet. It looks like a complicated project in itself, so maybe it’s for the best that we don’t have access to the entire blueprint, lest we waste an entire day trying to fold just part of a foot.
The artist also uploaded a timelapse video of him putting together the impressive figure:

WarioWare DIY papercraft. Nintendo included these Wario templates with the materials handed out to GDC attendees. But now you can make a boxy, formally-dressed Wario even if you didn’t attend GDC (or if you didn’t have Joystiq coworkers there), thanks to this scanned template.
It doesn’t really translate to the tasks in the game in any capacity other than that it involves Wario and making stuff, but anything to get people to pay attention to this rad game is a good thing. And since the game is about making stuff, it translates much more than the usual game papercraft. Plus, you know, yay papercraft.

Rock Volnutt (from Mega Man Legends) papercraft. The nice thing about PlayStation-era character models is that they’re not too intricate to convert to papercraft.
