3DS Sugo Grip by Hori. So, what do you get when one of the best accessory companies in the world makes a silly grip add-on? Well, it’s not finely polished wood, but it does feature two telescoping grips for customization and portability.
It also has a little kickstand thing in the back so it can act as a stand. 
Pretty nice grip peripheral, actually! Too bad Nintendo’s own grip accessory includes an extra analog stick, giving this one no chance of competing. Still, if you’re interested, you can totally buy one of these here.

Zelda 3DS bundle coming to US after all

tinycartridge:

It’s a Black Friday miracle! GameStop’s sale circular reveals that the Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D 3DS bundle contains the special Zelda-themed 3DS announced for Europe — and not a normal Cosmo Black 3DS as previously thought!

GameStop is charging $199 for it, which I guess is a $10 savings over buying the game and the 3DS separately. But Best Buy’s going to have it for $179.99. I’m sure Amazon will have a similar price, and you won’t have to spend your entire Thanksgiving outside of a damn store with people ready to go full-on barbarian for a TV.

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 boxart and English screenshots. These are the first official English screens — and just in time, as the game is set for “early 2012.”

If you’re interested in checking out this Nintendo DS sequel, it’s probably a good idea to pre-order it or get it right away. Devil Survivor Overclocked appears to be in short supply, like Atlus games of old. Remember not being able to buy Trauma Center? Fun… times…

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D’s Japanese boxart. As usual, the black sidebar on the Japanese release makes the boxart look a lot cooler than the American box will.
Retailer GMStar offers some info about supposed new additions to the 3DS remake of Snake Eater, including the ability to walk while crouching, and some kind of expanded FPS mode. Maybe you can play in first-person all the time?
I hope these features mean there is still work being done on Snake Eater 3D. I just finished the HD port over the weekend, and playing that version makes my heart break even more when I remember what the 3DS game was like at E3.

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D desk calendar. 100 of these are going to be handed out at random to people who play the Japanese eShop demo and fill out a survey. So there’s no way I’m going to get one of these.
How am I going to find out what day it is if Naked Snake doesn’t tell me? I’m worried. At least there’s still OtaClock so I can figure out the time without looking away from Metal Gear imagery.

Samus Aran figures by Good Smile Company shown at Comiket 81, based on Metroid: Other M. I don’t really need a Zero Suit Samus in my house, but that Varia Suit Samus is pretty great. And you don’t have to tell people it’s from Metroid: Other M if you don’t want to.

Zelda Figure Collection toys. Yes, more Nintendo figure news! This set includes versions of Link and Zelda from Skyward Sword, Ocarina of Time, and Phantom Hourglass.— which reminds me that I have no toys depicting Wind Waker-style Link, the only Zelda toy I’d ever need.
NCSX just opened pre-orders for complete sets, at $28.90. They’ll ship in April.

Selections from the new Capcom Bar menu. The restaurant, a joint venture between karaoke chain Pasela and Capcom, will serve a variety of meals based on Monster Hunter, Sengoku Basara, Resident Evil, and Ace Attorney when it opens January 25 in Shinjuku.

I will definitely go to this place around TGS time. I expect to chow down on a Samurai Dog and some strong, strong Godot Blend #102.

“Special trailer” for Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy. This has tons of footage of all the in-game modes — which are basically just variations on tapping and swiping to on-screen icons.

Man, I want to play this. I’ve lost all interest in the Final Fantasy series, but I can still dig the music, and that simple remix of the Final Fantasy theme totally works for me.

Commercials are pretty good too.

This stuff is all created by uploading an image to Society6, so there’s really a lot of stuff you can get with (unofficial, yes) Slime faces on it. Prints, phone skins, laptop skins, cards, canvases(!)…

Mario hat 3DS case now available at Club Nintendo

tinycartridge:

Nintendo has added the red Mario-style 3DS case to the North American Club Nintendo lineup, for 450 points – the same price as the green Luigi version, which now seems to have been removed from the site. It’s also oriented the opposite direction as the Luigi case, which is cute.

One of these cases will hold a DS, DSi, or 3DS admirably, with a little pocket for one game. It totally won’t hold a Vita
