Animal Crossing: New Leaf Christmas trailer ⊟
Oh man, I need to return to my town. I’m feeling the holiday spirit after watching this, and by “holiday spirit’ I mean “desire to ignore everything on Earth in favor of celebrating in a fake town.” And I need that Santa beard.

Video: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds launch trailer
Nintendo has released an official launch trailer for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds during their Nintendo Direct broadcast today.
Check out the launch vid here.
Animal Crossing 2014 diary ⊟
It’s not a Hobonichi Techoooooooo, but this lovely planner/”pocket diary” would be a nice way to organize your life in 2014. If, uh, you could get the Japanese Club Nintendo points together to buy it.
Days after Nintendo closed Swapnote's online messaging feature, we finally know more about what might have caused the sudden service stoppage.
According to a couple reports popping up in Japanese outlets Mainichi and Yomiuri Online, a 44-year-old man is said to have used the app to communicate with pre-teen girls, convincing them to send back nude photos. Two other men allegedly lured a 12-year-old girl to a hotel multiple times to perform “improper acts” after connecting with her through an online dating site she accessed with her 3DS (possibly using the handheld’s browser?).
Kotaku says the reports mention the victims’ parents turned off the online functions of their daughters’ 3DSes, but the children turned them back on.
Terrible, terrible people. The sad Nikki artwork above is courtesy of Koto by the way. You can hear us talking more about Swapnote's demise in our new podcast episode published this morning.BUY Nintendo 2DS and 3DS/XL consoles, upcoming games
Nintendo Confirms The Legend of Zelda 3DS XL for North America
Square Enix released a new batch of screenshots for Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster. The remaster will be available for Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita on December 26, 2013 in Japan, and early 2014 in North America and Europe.
That looks like a special Wind Waker HD Wii U ⊟
This image popped up in a new trailer for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker's “Hero Mode” — I don't know if Nintendo jumped the gun on this reveal, as it's taking down the videos people have posted for it.
We’ve no clue if this will actually be a limited edition bundle, how much it will go for or when it will release, or about any other details. I’m surprised Nintendo didn’t go for a gold console, but I guess this matches the special edition Legend of Zelda 3DS.
Oh shit.. say it isnt so.. I don’t have that kind of money!!
Wind Waker HD, Pikmin 3, and Wonderful 101 Club Nintendo shirts ⊟
These shirts are, alas, for Japan only, available for 600 points alone on their release dates, or 400 points with purchase of the game.
Well, I say for Japan only, but I’m pretty sure Nintendo will have all of these at PAX, or at least similar shirts. I’m not going to PAX, so that doesn’t count.
Virtue’s Last Reward finally on the 3DS eShop ⊟
I don’t know why this took so long — I believe it had a day-one PSN release for PS Vita — but you can now buy the second entry from Chunsoft’s Zero Escape series on the eShop. It’s available with nice discount, priced at $24.99 (until September 3) instead of the $39.99 it’s going for at retail.
More details on today’s handheld download releases, including the 100th 3DS Virtual Console release in North America, over on this page!
Retro City Rampage coming to 3DS eShop ⊟
Buried in a press release about games it’s bringing to PAX, Nintendo let it slip that VBlank’s Retro City Rampage will make a stop on the 3DS eShop, after appearing on nearly every other console under the sun. The game will be playable at the event, as will WayForward’s Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse for the first time.
Other 3DS games playable at PAX include Pokemon X/Y, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Scribblenauts Unmasked, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, Sonic Lost World, and Summer Carnival ‘92: RECCA.
If you’re into Wii U stuff, there will also be plenty of upcoming games from big publishers and indies, a Wonderful 101 panel with creative director Hideki Kamiya, and a chance to buy Wonderful 101 two weeks early. S/o to Wampahugs for the pic.
Lots of critters leaving the mainland this month! Be sure to catch them before they’re gone!
P.S. Note that many of the bugs leaving the mainland are available on the island year-round.

i can’t wait for this game to ruin my life
Fantasy Life Link trailer
This clip shows the enhanced edition’s new map, new characters, and most importantly, lots of multiplayer – this version adds online play. This game isn’t all combat, but I guess that just makes for a better trailer.
If you already have a copy of the original Fantasy Life for your Japanese 3DS, you can upgrade for 2,000 yen, it looks like. Nice! And if you have a copy for your American 3DS, you live in the future, where we’ve successfully convinced Level-5 to localize this.BUY Fantasy Life, upcoming games/pre>
