Limited edition SD Gundam G Generation 3DS and bundle packaging look sick (click for a larger image).
There are a lot of third-party 3DS bundles hitting Japan soon — the three New Love Plus packages, and of course the white Monster Hunter Tri-G set. When are we going to hear about special edition systems coming to the West?
This slick-looking kit, a fine successor to the dope RX-93 Gundam DS Lite, will release alongside the new 3DS game on December 22 for ¥21,090 ($274).

Code of Princess, a new sidescrolling action game coming to the 3DS from Agashima Entertainment. The code in question here certainly isn’t referring to a dress code.

The game plays similar to Treasure’s Guardian Heroes beat’em up, in that you can have up to four players battling enemies and pulling off combos in multiple planes.

It’s all based on a fantasy world created by former Capcom illustrator Kinu Nishimura — you might have seen her work in the Street Fighter series or 999. She’s serving as the character and world designer on this project. 

There’s already a figure for Code of Princess, which was debuted wayyy back in February! It’s somehow even more lewd than the concept art we’ve featured here.  I wonder if Agashima was looking for a project to take on, saw this figure, and was like, “We want to delve more into the rich world of this woman with a big sword and no clothes”.

Three minutes of Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy, the upcoming 3DS title that takes you through the Final Fantasy series in various rhythm game formats.

Siliconera notes you’ll be able to battle an adorable Sephiroth and other villains in the game’s Chaos Tower, a boss rush that pits you against “bosses like… the Black Knights from Final Fantasy II with a special ‘dark score’.”

Japan: February 16. Everywhere else: No date announced.

A shot of the snakeskin-style 3DS set to be included with the limited edition Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D system bundle coming to Japan on March 8.
Hideo Kojima offered his Twitter followers this cropped peek at the special 3DS and its “embossed snake pattern” last night. Like many others, I presumed the bundle would include either a standard system, or a simple branded 3DS similar to that cover from Hori’s accessory line for the game. So, this is a nice surprise!
Expect Japanese details for the bundle on January 20.

U.S. box for Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater (click for a larger image), which releases here on February 21 — two weeks before the Japanese and European ship date.
This enhanced port of the PS2 game includes support for the Circle Pad Pro, which debuts in North America on February 7 alongside Resident Evil: Revelations.

3DS stand bundled with Kid Icarus: Uprising in Japan.

Along with its support for the Circle Pad Pro/Frankenstick add-on (which appears to only be for left-handed play, not necessarily for a dual-stick control option that replaces the analog pad/touchscreen setup), this game will have a stand to improve its play experience.

I presume it’s to keep your portable still while you hold it with one hand and tap on the touchscreen, so the stereoscopic 3D effect isn’t broken? Or to make sure the system doesn’t put too much strain on your wrist, since you’ll be holding it with one hand? It seems like dual-stick support with Circle Pad Pro would have fixed this…

Whatever the reason, it just increases my worry over Kid Icarus: Uprising, which I’ve already had doubts about given the unfavorable preview impressions I’ve heard.

Several weeks after demos appeared on the 3DS eShop in Japan, the free trials will finally debut in North America and Europe, starting tomorrow with Resident Evil: Revelations (Europe will also get a Cooking Mama 4 demo). The U.S. will receive a Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic…

Acquiring the limited edition system will require a good deal of cash and luck, but the person who shot/posted this photo needed neither — one of the special perks of being Japanese actress, Kojima Productions spokesperson, and Metal Gear Solid voice talent Yumi Kikuchi.
