I'm pumped to dress up Pikachu like a little fancy man photo
I'm pumped to dress up Pikachu like a little fancy man
by Max Scoville

One of my favorite parts of Pokémon Black & White was the ability to haze your magical pets by dressing them up and having them perform musical theatre, so putting Pikachu in drag in Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby sounds awesome to me. If you want to watch the full Pokémon trailer in all its awkwardly-paced Nintendo-approved sterile family-friendly glory, here it is.

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby's secret bases are the base-t

Somehow, the revival of secret bases is enough to have me considering Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. I wasted ages originally seeking out the best laid out base so I could build a rocking pad with music mats, wa...

I'm going to freelance for all the outlets in Final Fantasy Explorers

Finally! A game that understands me on a personal level. Final Fantasy Explorers will feature Freelancers. Kind of like me, except these freelancers can create equipment for themselves using raw materials. When you start out,...

Those new Smash Bros. mystery characters are Lucina and Robin from Fire Emblem photo
Those new Smash Bros. mystery characters are Lucina and Robin from Fire Emblem
by Chris Carter

Today, Nintendo was set to tease a "New Fighter Intro Video" at 7AM PST, and tease they did. The new fighter was revealed to be none other than Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening. But wait, there's more! Robin from Fire Emblem is also in, and he has a female gender swapped costume! Chrom was revealed as well, but it isn't clear if he is a playable character or just a skin/assist trophy/Final Smash, but all signs point to the latter.

Finally, Captain Falcon was revealed as a returning fighter. That's three confirmed characters with two new additions and one returning character (we'll see what Chrom is soon enough). Sakurai noted last week that they were "nearing the bottom of the stash" in terms of new announcements, so I wouldn't expect a whole lot more.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will see an October release in Japan
by Chris Carter

In this morning's Japanese Nintendo Direct, Capcom revealed that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will hit Japanese 3DS units everywhere on October 11th. Yep, this is the same game we will eventually get overseas come 2015.

As is the case with all Monster Hunter expansions, new weapons, monsters, and areas are in tow. You can get a glimpse of the update in the new video above from Capcom. Considering how many re-releases we've had lately from the series, I'm excited to see a real, new entry.

Final Fantasy Explorers will hit Japan this winter

Japan just had a third-party Nintendo Direct, and it decidedly focused on Final Fantasy Explorers at the start. Square Enix revealed that the game will be hitting Japan sometime this winter, which is a fairly quick release given that it was just announced. If you want to see the game overseas, make sure you pray to your favorite summon that it sells well over in Japan. I call Odin!
