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”.

First footage from the Ace Attorney film directed by Takashi Miike and coming out in Japan next February.

The full trailer isn’t expected to debut until next week, but portions of it popped up recently in a variety show. This looks much better than I’d expect for a live action adaptation of the courtroom adventure series!

Pokemon + Nobunaga’s Ambition, a new mash-up SRPG coming from Nintendo and Tecmo Koei.

Everyone expected this weekend’s rumored reveal for the latest entry of the catch-em-all series to be Pokemon Gray, but this weird thing is way more interesting!

If you’re unfamiliar with Koei’s original Nobunaga’s Ambition, it was a well-received strategy title that took place during Japan’s Sengoku/Warring States period — a popular setting for games lately, so it isn’t that much of a surprise that Nintendo wants to experiment with this era.

But mixing it with Pokemon? Yeah, that shit cray.

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.

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.

New Mario Party 9 trailer. Despite my brief spats of obsession with Mario Kart, and dalliances with bros of the Smash variety, I’ve never gotten into Mario Party.

This video isn’t convincing me that this next release will be the one that gets me into it. Maybe if Bowser’s Koopa Clown Car was one of the vehicles you drive around in? Or if Wario took over as the minigame director?

Or perhaps if this more closely emulated my own experiences with parties, allowing me to play as a ShyGuy that hung out in a corner the entire night, not really talking to anyone, occasionally smiling at people who walk by, looking at my phone every 30 seconds and tweeting “Why does everyone here hate me?”

Some kind of Neo Geo portable device making the rounds today. Supposedly, this iPhone-styled handheld is licensed by SNK Playmore, but there’s all sorts of weird stuff going on in these photos — like the eratically labeled shoulder buttons, the “Select” button that turns into “Menu” in another shot, and just the general cheap look of it.

Despite those doubts over whether this is a real thing — and the fact you can already download a grip of Neo Geo titles on PSP/PS Vita — its advertised features are nice: 4.3-inch screen, 2GB internal storage with an SD card slot, analog stick, and 20 built-in North American Neo Geo games (e.g. Metal Slug, King of Fighters ‘94). It just needs Neo Geo Pocket/Neo Geo Pocket Color support!
