Club Nintendo’s A Link Between Worlds poster set ⊟
For 500 coins, you can get the three posters seen here, each 22” by 28”. Unless they’re sold out by the time this post goes up. That happens sometimes. In which case you should, uh, print out the wallpapers? Or just wait for a restock?
Another awesome Game Center CX film poster ⊟
Game Center CX fan translator-turned-official artist Nina Matsumoto produced this amazing poster for Game Center CX THE MOVIE 1986 Mighty Bomb Jack, featuring the coolest, most Viewtiful version of Mighty Bomb Jack I’ve ever seen. Watch the film’s first trailer here!
Game Center CX: The Movie posters ⊟
Well, these are dramatic! The movie is coming to Japanese theaters in February. It looks like there may be some sequences with a young Arino?
Anamanaguchi’s new album and tour kick off really soon, but the chiptune group just launched a Kickstarter to give you more than just another collection of MP3s on your hard drive or a loud show to go to.
If it manages to raise $50,000, the band plans to put out more music videos (see "Meow"), add wild lighting setups to its performances, collab with artists and musicians, put together more interactive web projects, and more.
You’ll get some great pledge rewards for your donations: digital preorders for Endless Fantasy, shirts, posters (the Cory Schmitz/Mare Odomo joint above), vinyl copies of the album, the band’s Game Boys/modded NESes, chiptune workshops, and even Anamanaguchi’s frickin’ van.
Fire Emblem: Awakening poster
This neat fold-out poster comes from a recent issue of Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream. It’s mostly assets we’ve seen before, but who cares, I am so pumped for this game. We’ve also seen this intro to Fire Emblem: Awakening video before on the Nintendo Direct livestream, but Nintendo uploaded the excerpt yesterday and I watched it again this morning anyway because I am so hyped for this.
PREORDER: Fire Emblem: Awakening, other upcoming games

Detail from “Everyone,” a print created by game designer Anna “Auntie Pixelante” Anthropy. Originally designed as the cover art for her upcoming book Rise of the Videogame Zinesters, this artwork features 204 different pixel portraits, all drawn by Anthropy, who is apparently a finely tuned pixel art machine.
You can closely inspect the artwork yourself, marveling at all the different styles she used for the portraits, by purchasing the 12.25” by 17.25” print for $25 (or $30 outside of the US).

Anamanaguchi poster for a July show in Williamsburg, illustrated by Maré Odomo and designed by Cory Schmitz (click for a larger image). I am swooning all over this.
The art is based on Adrian Tomine’s ”Super-hero Girls” piece for Weezer, adding extra touches like the yellow Game Boy, Totoro pillow, Wavebird controller, and Famicom. You can also see some Anamanaguchi bits like Frug, the Four Loko can, and band members Peter and Luke (represented here by the lesbian rockers).
Attract Mode will sell 24” x 36” prints at the show.

Ancient map of Hyrule by Bill Mudron (click for a massive version). Paying tribute to the The Legend of Zelda series, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last week, this map features all the areas and item/palace/dungeon locations from the The Adventure of Link and the original Famicom/NES game.
Mudron, whose name you should know from his Nintendo History System chapbook, is selling 24 x 36-inch versions of the map printed on archival premium matte stock for $40 each. Here are a couple close-ups of the poster:
You can grab the prints here.

Extra Dimension System Highround Action Game: Golgo 13 (click for a larger version of the sumi-e poster).
Though Vic Tokai later used the same artwork for the Japanese cover of The Mafat Conspiracy, this was a rare promotional poster for Golgo 13’s first NES game, Top Secret Episode, that the publisher gave away at the ‘89 Summer Consumer Electronics Show.
I spotted this at Chris Bieniek’s Video Game Ephemera, a neat site full of scanned and uploaded game materials like this — old newsletters, brochures, promo videos, etc. It’s definitely worth wasting your afternoon there!

No More Heroes 2 poster. Grasshopper Manufacture is giving five of these awesome movie-style posters to Twitterers. The Japanese tweet about this giveaway asks fans to talk about their favorite No More Heroes characters, along with the reason for that preference and the #NMHXmas hashtag. But the U.S. side asks only for retweets of this message.
One of the five posters given away will be signed by Suda 51 and NMH character designer Yusuke Kozaki. The rest will merely be rad posters. That you should try to win.
The Last Story promotional poster (click for a larger image). You probably already saw the awesome artwork on this game’s Wii hardware bundle, but this is the most splendid piece out of everything Nintendo revealed today.
Sadly, this isn’t the actual art that will adorn the disc’s case. Those who preorder the game in Japan, though, will receive an excellent “Elements of The Last Story” bonus with a mini soundtrack and visual book encased in this fine box:
Before you ask, no, nothing regarding the game or its bundles/bonuses have been announced for North America yet, which seems to be the theme for all our posts today.
