Tiny Cartridge 3DS

River City Ransom and Super Mario Bros. 2 coming to 3DS eShop in Japan. Mannnn, so jealous of people with a portable version of River City Ransom! I played the GBA version obsessively until I got so overpowered I could basically just run through the whole game in a straight line.

These arrive on Nov. 28 for ¥500 each. This week in Japan: Pac-Man…!

Buy: Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL consoles

The next Super Mario 3D Land could look like this, if Nintendo modeled it after the quirky second game in the original NES series. That’s unlikely, but if Super Mario Bros. 2 taught us anything, it’s that a fellow can dream!
This mock-up comes from @pokecapn, and is based on the clean version Bill Mudron illustrated without all the 3DS screen’s quirks (e.g. ghosting, lines, etc.)
Buy: Super Mario 3D Land, New Super Mario Bros. 2

Tiny comedy and tragedy masks by J.S. Dresch (click for a larger image). J.S. created this rad wall sculpture for our Birthday Contest Of Forever event several months ago — it kind of inspired the “disapproving” expression we use for lackluster releases at DS Dates.
And while we’re talking about masks, we hope you enjoy our new “Super Tiny Cart” banner featuring Tiny as Super Mario Bros. 2's Phanto. Jess Ragan (The Gameroom Blitz, GORF GBA) donated this awesome art for our use, and we hope it will dissuade any readers from picking up any scattered keys that clearly do not belong to them.
Though we’re awful at returning your emails and tweets, we do love our readers. When we built Tiny Cartridge, we never dreamed anyone would care enough about our little site — much less the silly mascot we whipped up on a whim — to invest their creative talents into Tiny art.

Super Mario Bros. 2-style Adventure Time spritesheet by IT (click for a larger, less blurry version). Oddly, this isn’t the first time someone’s combined these two properties…
Protip: If you cut out one of these sprites, then load up a Super Mario Bros. 2 speedrun on Youtube, you can drag and hold the sprite over the video to pretend like you’re actually playing the game with Finn/Jake/TreeTrunks.
Feel free to add your own Adventure Time exclamations during your playthrough (e.g. “Algebraic!”, “Ohhhhh, holy cow!”, and “You just kissed a boom boom baby.”)

Crocheted Phanto coasters by Ginrei (click for larger image). Oh god, whatever you do, don’t pick up the key!
You can’t see it, but each piece of the set has a magnet on the back, so you can stick these on your fridge, too. Also for sale at Ginrei’s Etsy shop: crocheted Energy Tank cozies.
