Fils-a-Mech Mii is happening ⊟
So that weird Mega64 joke video is now a special gold-pants Mii being sent out via SpotPass. Go check your Mii Plaza if, say, you never go anywhere and never, ever see Miis in your Mii Plaza.
This is really bizarre. Nintendo is trying so, so hard with this stuff.
BUY Nintendo 2DS & 3DS/XL, upcoming games
All the 3DS news from this morning ⊟
We covered most of the big Wii U items from today’s Nintendo Direct in separate posts, so now here’s a round-up of all the 3DS news and media. There’s a lot of stuff!:
- The Bravely Default demo/side-story is coming to North America’s eShop on January 2. Here’s a new trailer for the demo.
- A demo for the Chibi-Robo! Photo Finder eShop game is releasing here soon, and the full game will hit the States on January 9.
- Takashi Tezuka, creative director for the original Yoshi’s Island, is producing New Yoshi’s Island (releases in spring). New trailer.
- Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney hits Europe March 28.
- Everyone who registers their 3DS in Japan or Europe by mid-January will get Super Mario Bros. Deluxe (Game Boy Color) for free. Why aren’t we getting this? :o(
Reggie’s leaving his house in your New Leaf town
If you have a U.S. copy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, you’ll receive a visit from Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime via SpotPass soon. You’ll be able to tour his house in-person and order his furniture over at the Happy Home Showcase (located between the post office and the Nook store on Main Street).
The Happy Home Showcase — if you can manage to StreetPass other New Leaf players — is such a great new feature for the game. I’ve seen so many inspiring homes and purchased so much awesome furniture thanks to it!
Conclusive proof that Reggie’s Animal Crossing house is real
There was some question last week, based on the changed Mii and the overall ridiculousness last week, about whether the Reggie house distributed via StreetPass at E3 was really from Reggie Fils-Aime’s game.
Well, here he is walking you through his very own house! So it’s REAL. Reggie’s ACNL house really does have Reggie sheets. Some intern must have been laughing while creating that.
Showing us this house without including a Dream Suite code is ICE COLD, Reggie.
Reggie Asks tomorrow
To explain the features of Nintendo TVii, launching on Wii U Dec. 20, Nintendo will post a special “Reggie Asks” tomorrow, the very first Reggie Fils-Aime hosted version of an Iwata Asks interview.
I’m really curious to see if Reggie has picked up any interviewing pointers from Satoru Iwata, a person whose interviewing skills make me jealous… especially since I’m supposed to be a professional reporter or whatever. (laughs)
