The Fuzzier Side

Previously a boy who spent 10 years in a vacuum of adolescent irresponsibilities. Most people knows me as an Artist. Lately I have been still trying to figure out who I am and be a better man.

Nicalis’ next 3DS eShop release: a doujin fighter from SNK/King of Fighters veterans. Wait, what?

Details on Circle Edge’s Yatagarasu:

  • Eight playable characters
  • Single and 2P Vs. modes
  • Training and Replay modes
  • Four-button attack system with Parry System
  • Classic 2D hand drawn sprites

I’m unsure if the final game will have those black borders — or if that’s just footage Nicalis had on hand from the PC version — but I’ve reached out to see if that’s the case.

Adventure Time for DS/3DS is inspired by Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, and oh my god here are the first screenshots and art. You done did it, WayForward. You done made a tie-in game for a cartoon sound like a must-buy (Batman: The Brave and the Bold was aight, too).

Nintendo Power’s preview of Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage says the game features the same perspective switching as Zelda II, in that its “top-view areas focus on quests and exploration, and the side view combines combat and platforming.”

The game is expected to ship some time this year.

Two minutes of E.X. Troopers, the Lost Planet spin-off coming to Japan later this year. The footage here is likely from the PlayStation 3 edition of the game, but since it’s also coming to 3DS and the handheld version doesn’t look too different, this seemed worth sharing.

According to news coming out of Capcom’s Summer Jam event today, the game will feature multiplayer co-op.

Mercenary Kings, the latest from Wizorb developer Tribute Games, featuring animations from Paul Robertson (if it’s not immediately evident from the puppy tank).

I suspect this will ship for XBLA or XBLIG, as well as PC, but it still deserves mention here  because these are cool dudes, and we’re always down for whatever they’re working on. Plus, I would be totally into a sprite-based run’n gun with a weapon crafting system.

The project is still in its early prototype stage, and is expected to release some time in 2013.

“Wayfinder” by Infinity Shred — or Starscream, as you might have known them by before the band recently changed its name due to legal issues. This is the first single from the newly named group, and its upcoming release EP 001 (Gnar Dream), releasing May 15.

As has become customary with these music links, other chiptune stuff I’ve been meaning to mention:

Oh, and you can buy that awesome “Wayfinder” song, which you really should listen to all the way, here.

Mare Odomo has printed a new run for his endearing Letters to an Absent Father series, and has given the comic collection a new cover, which you can see about. It’s only $5 for the booklet, and another $5 if you want a custom drawing with it. Might as well get the $5 cartridge stickers with the Letters to an Absent Father label, too!
Some exciting news the Pokemon comic master revealed while announcing the reprint: he’s scripted a few more strips and says he’ll maybe make more comics. Mare also promises to put out an 8x8 print and comic soon.

That cute and tiny dinosaur from Tekken 3 is getting his own 3DS game with Gon Paku Paku Paku Paku Adventure from Namco Bandai (click for larger images)!

Of course, those in the know will recognize Gon from his dialogue-free manga — it’s a fun comic, if you can track it down. I don’t expect this to be a spectacular game, but it’s great to see the little guy get his own adventure. Maybe we’ll get some Tekken cameos? And by we, I mean people in Japan, who will get this game come June.

Long-legged Mario, one of many scrapped ideas Koichi Hayashida and his team tried out for Super Mario 3D Land. The problem with this concept? It was too scary! He’s starting to look too much like that creeper Waluigi in these mock-up images from EmCeeGramr.

Christian Nutt has a great write-up of Hayashida’s inspiring talk about Super Mario 3D Land at the Game Developers Conference yesterday. Definitely give it a read.

Haggle Man and Demon cameos in Super Mario Bros. Crossover 2.0 (skip to 2:52 - 3:06)!!! Okay, this video/indie project is so rad for dozens of reasons, but I can’t believe these two little-known heroes from Game Center CX and Retro Game Challenge’s fake retro titles made it into this thing! We’re told that they’re only alternate costumes for other characters right now, but they may become playable characters eventually.

Developer Jay Pavlina will release this as a Flash game some time during the first quarter of 2012 — why Nintendo hasn’t hired this man yet to design an official Super Mario Bros. remix for its consoles is beyond me. You can play the original version of Super Mario Bros. Crossover, which is amazing in its own right, over here.

Here’s a silly way to jury rig a physical directional pad onto the virtual camera controls in Monster Hunter Tri-G (if you’re not using the Circle Pad Pro/Frankenstick)!

That blue gel-like material is a “shock absorbable pad” commonly used in Japan under furniture, electronics, and appliances to prevent them from tipping over during an earthquake. They’re pretty cheap, too.

On the topic of the Circle Pad Pro, remember those reports about it having a battery life of around 480 hours on a single AAA, according to the Japanese manual? Someone actually tore down the peripheral, examined its innards, measured its power consumption, and found that it could last quite a bit longer — conceivably up to 540 hours of continuous use! That’s a lot of Monster Hunter.

That’s like something I would do. One time I replaced my PSP1000 Dpad with my old PSX dpad. It required alot of shaving off the plastic of the psx dpad with heated box cutter :(

Kai-oh, or Sea King, an original 3DS project from Mega Man producer/Capcom veteran Keiji Inafune and his new Intercept studio. I thought for sure his new outfit was going to focus on smartphone games or some social stuff, but I’m glad to hear he’s going HAM on the 3DS.

This curious action RPG, which will be published by Marvelous AQL in Japan some time next year, is a new One Piece-ish take on the Three Kingdoms/Sangokushi formula with a pirate-theme and a penguin hero.

It’s interesting that Marvelous put out this subtitled trailer, and even have an English version of the game’s official site up — a Western release definitely looks to be in consideration. Now we just need a non-CG gameplay trailer to assure us that this is worth our excitement.
