First of all…
If you didn’t already notice, I’ve taken the liberty of spending most of my morning/afternoon updating the site – not only did I freshen up the Release Dates page, I also added some banner images to make the Reviews page look a little nicer.
I already published a few quick stories related to Bravely Default and an upcoming action game being developed for the 3DS by Treasure (Ikaruga, Guardian Heroes). I put up the “Looking Ahead” article for November 2012, and finally I published two reviews - Liberation Maiden and Code of Princess. Be sure to check those out.
Now, to the point of this quick little blurb: I have a few little pieces of information that I’ve stumbled upon this afternoon, but can’t be bothered to publish in unique posts:
No Paid DLC in Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Satoru Iwata confirmed today that Animal Crossing: New Leaf will not contain “paid DLC”, stating that this would “…[create] a game in which you enjoy yourself more by the power of money,” which would “not be suitable.” Makes sense; Animal Crossing has never been about giving you power with money, only taking away every last trace of the in-game currency that you’ve worked so hard to earn.
Digital Version of Paper Mario: Sticker Star is Massive
If you were planning to download the digital version of Paper Mario: Sticker Star, make sure you’ve got plenty of space on your SD card: the eShop download requires rougly 522 MB, or 4,199 “blocks” of memory. Until Nintendo drops the price of the full download on eShop, I feel more than satisfied with a hard copy.
Check Out This Japan-Only Charizard 3DS XL
Since day one, I have had a problem with the “aqua blue” 3DS that I decided to purchase. I still kick myself every day for not picking up the black one, or waiting for the red one.
Anyway, if I lived in Japan, I’d be kicking even harder right now: check out this absolutely, ridiculously awesome special edition Charizard 3DS XL.
Apparently, getting your hands on one will be difficult enough: you have to win a lottery just to get the chance to buy one. Absurd. For now I’ll leave you with these images to drool over.
