That’s a lot of Kirby on eShop ⊟ 

I can’t remember the last time Nintendo did a planned eShop release this big. Three Kirby games are new on eShop this week, to celebrate, uh, a month and a half after the release of Kirby: Planet Robobot (for which there is also a demo now!)

Kirby’s Epic Yarn and Kirby Mass Attack are on Wii U eShop, and Kirby’s Dream Course is on New 3DS! All at once! Dang!

Yakuza 0 out January 24, and Yakuza 5 free on PS Plus ⊟

Somehow, I managed to drive, dance, hunt, and intimidate my way all the way through the epic Yakuza 5, so I’m ready for more! January 24, physically and digitally, in Europe and North America, the prequel Yakuza 0 will be available, and I will be playing it.

If you’d like to get caught up, Yakuza 5 will be free on PlayStation Plus in August! I cannot overstate what a fantastic deal that is. Yakuza 5 is my favorite game in the series, and it is not a short game.

Nintendo releasing tiny NES with built-in games ⊟

Did not expect this in my email this morning. It’s an official, Nintendo-made “NES Classic Edition” with 30 games built in! Good ones!

  • Balloon Fight
  • BUBBLE BOBBLE
  • Castlevania
  • Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
  • Donkey Kong
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • DOUBLE DRAGON II: THE REVENGE
  • Dr. Mario
  • Excitebike
  • FINAL FANTASY®
  • Galaga
  • GHOSTS’N GOBLINS®
  • GRADIUS
  • Ice Climber
  • Kid Icarus
  • Kirby’s Adventure
  • Mario Bros.
  • MEGA MAN® 2
  • Metroid
  • NINJA GAIDEN
  • PAC-MAN
  • Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream
  • StarTropics
  • SUPER C
  • Super Mario Bros.
  • Super Mario Bros. 2
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • TECMO BOWL
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Double Dragon 2 but not 1? Weird. Mega Man 2 instead of 1 makes perfect sense though.

Just as exciting: extra NES-style controllers for this thing will be sold for $10, and will also work as Wii/Wii U Classic Controllers! That also means that anything that works as a Wii Classic Controller should also work here.

This lil’ guy will be out November 11 for $59.99.

No, you’re crying because of a Pokémon commercial ⊟ 

Not me, I’m tough and strong, and able to watch this Japanese trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon without tearing up. 

I mean, maybe some people might relate to little Shohei, who feels completely isolated from the world until he discovers one common interest he can share with people, but not this guy.

If that commercial hit you that way, you’d probably be thinking about this the whole time you were playing the next Pokémon game, about how it’s a lonely kid wandering an unfamiliar place, with no way to connect to anyone else except for a popular game.
