Anyone else playing Disney Magical World? ⊟
I almost forgot it came out late this week, but this launch trailer reminded me. What does everyone think about it so far? A suitable replacement for Animal Crossing: New Leaf? Nintendo seems to think so — it sent out an email last night to people who have registered New Leaf that read in its subject line, “You played Animal Crossing, now try this new game”.
Here are a bunch of AR cards from Japan that you can scan to get free stuff in Disney Magical World (e.g. furniture, outfits).
Pokemon chopsticks: gotta pinch em all ⊟
I think these Pokemon chopsticks available on J-List are pretty cute, and might be a good way to encourage a kid to learn to use chopsticks (mine aren’t yet at the age for chopsticks, or utensils, or Pokemon).
Mostly, I like that the three available options are Pikachu, Charmander, and… Snorlax. How random! Does that mean that some kids’ favorite Pokemon is the one who sleeps constantly and gets in the way? That’s actually pretty cool.
I want the snorelax ones!
Price cut on five 3DS staples ⊟
Starting April 22, you’ll be able to buy the following games from the eShop or retailers for $29.99 each:
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf
- Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
- Mario Kart 7
- New Super Mario Bros. 2
- Super Mario 3D Land
All of those games have hovered around $30 for a while at some point, and a couple even launched at only $35. Still, yay for cheaper games. I haven’t spent enough time with DKCR 3D or NSMB 2 to deliver a verdict on them, but the other three are must-buys if you are the type of person who likes to play games that are fun. Otherwise, they’re alright to skip.SUPPORT TINY CARTRIDGE Join Club Tiny!
I’m angry about how cool this Princess Peach Wiimote Plus is ⊟
I definitely don’t need any more Wii Remotes, but the new Princess Peach Wii Remote Plus is too, too good. Like when the Mario and Luigi versions came out, I’m upset by how tempted I am to drop $40 on one of these when they hit stores later this month.
I love how the blue buttons suggest her earrings and brooch! And the d-pad is her crown.
Now I wait as people clamor for a Toad Wiimote they don’t actually want, just out of some semi-OCD need to complete the Super Mario Bros. 2 cast.
Obviously, you’re not the only one, Zelda! Amazon has the $35 game up for preorder now, so all of you can make sure your Miis will be talking about hunky Iwata day one (day one probably being a few days after the June 6 release date, when you take shipping into account).PREORDER Tomodachi Life, upcoming releases
