Keep these amiibo stocked!
I haven't really gotten into Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, but this new update that's on the horizon may sway me a bit. According to Tiny Cartridge, gaming items are coming, including kiosks for newer and retro Ninten...
Mewtwo, Mabel, Tom Nook, and a 3-pack
Friends, Romans, amiibo-hunters: lend me your ears. The day is upon us for another amiibo release. It's a little bit of Smash Bros. and a lot of Animal Crossing. Mostly cute (like last time) with just a dash of badass. Mewtwo...
Well, this kind of came out of nowhere, and I don't see a lot of people talking about it.
Earlier this year during E3, Nintendo reps informed multiple outlets that Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival would be a free eShop d...
Journal Entry #1:
I moved to a new town today. It was a last-minute decision, and I didn't even have a place picked out, so it was a little scary. Luckily, a raccoon named Nook showed me some really cheap houses to rent, so I...
This game has gone to the dogs
Millions of people love puppies. Millions of people also love Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. What happens when you put those two things together? Like chocolate and peanut butter, you get something spectacular!
2.02 million, in fact
Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer has sold over two million copies since its release in Japan on July 30, 2015.
Yes, really. 2.02M, to be precise -- even though North America and Europe didn't get the spin-off title until l...
Nintendo has revealed four new figures based on the Animal Crossing series for its amiibo toyline. The group, which includes Celeste, Mr. Resetti, Kicks, and Blathers, launches Dec. 17 in Japan.
There's currently no word on w...
In the name of science, Michibiku tore into a duplicate Animal Crossing amiibo card to see what the innards would look like. About what you'd expect, really: a little chip and not much else.
"Surprisingly, the tech isn't that...
That's definitely a best-case scenario
Collecting amiibo has, to this point, been largely an exercise in madness. Nintendo has shellacked us with a flurry of figures from across several lines, brands, and degrees of availability. At least we knew what we were gett...
Starting October 1, new items will be hitting Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer in Japan. They're mostly Mario related, including question mark blocks, shells, coins, stars, and even the iconic end of level flag....
Animal Crossing Series 1
Amazon is now taking pre-orders for the Animal Crossing amiibo cards. Be strong.
100 cards are in Series 1 and they're being sold in packs of six for $5.99. Currently, Amazon is limiting orders to four packs per person, thoug...
Do you trust him?
I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry while looking at Louie. He initially seems funny in an off-brand Donkey Kong sort of way, but the longer I stare, the more unsettling his appearance becomes.
He's headed to Animal Crossing...
Animal Crossing's home design feature was actually the thing that got me hooked on the series in the first place. Back when I was addicted to building houses in The Sims, one of my friends came over for a visit and broug...
We've seen a fair amount about Animal Crossing and amiibo, but a lot of it has to do with the first use of amiibo cards. Well, when both Happy Home Designer and amiibo Festival release, they'll also get so...
Cameo by Tom Nook!
Today in "things I really want to be localized but probably never will," I've come across Monster Hunter Diary: Poka Poka Airou Village DX, an upgraded port of a PSP game from 2010 that was developed by From Software, strang...
Walmart is listing them as such
Walmart is listing Animal Crossing amiibo cards on its website for $5.96 for a pack of six, so essentially a dollar a card. That isn't that surprising as they go for around the same price when imported from Japan, though...
Think of the children
This week the critically lampooned Pixels movie opens in theaters nationwide in the United States, and if you'd rather spend your time and money on movies that don't blow consider these other video game-related films. Don't worry though, this list won't just be the movies you've all seen before, because I'm so much cooler than that.
100 cards, different sizes by country
The first set of collectible cards with amiibo functionality are releasing at the end of this month, July 30, in Japan in conjunction with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. In Europe the cards launch October 2 alongside t...
With slightly out of sync audio!
Nintendo UK livestreamed the upcoming Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer for thirty minutes to show off how the game is played and drop new bits of information along the way.
Happy Home Designer will feature ove...
Egg to chicken, amiibo to game
In an interview with USgamer, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival creative lead Aya Kyogoku was asked if amiibo Festival was conceptualized as a game involving amiibo or if the ...
Dumpster behind store now super classy
Trump, the Republican frontrunner for the 2016 Presidential nomination, has had a bit of a rough week after NBC and Macy's both parted ways with the reality TV star in light of comments he made about illegal immigra...
Hey, what are you doing right now? Fuck you, because it's not as cool as what I'm doing right now, which is listening to KK Slider covering Outkast's "Hey Ya!"
Now I'm listening to KK Slider doing Johnny Cash's "Hurt."
Stitches just blew her mind...
Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is almost here, but I'm not seeing much excitement for it. Maybe that's because it's a full priced game that looks to offer just a fraction of the features found in the previously re...
Also, AC: amiibo Festival announced
Today, during Nintendo's E3 showcase, the publisher took some time to talk Animal Crossing.
The decorating-focused Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is coming to Nintendo 3DS on September 25, the company announced just be...
New Animal Crossing / Pikmin TBA?
Nintendo of Europe have uploaded an image to its server a bit early revealing new series of amiibo, pictured above. 8-bit Mario would most likely be used for Mario Maker, and the Isabelle amiibo card is for Animal Crossing: H...
That's about $32
When we first heard about Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, it was easy to look at it as a stop gap measure to satiate people's hunger for more of the series that would also work to cash in on the current amiibo craze. F...
You're a kid now
Do you still boot up Animal Crossing: New Leaf every once in a while? I'm a terrible neighbor -- I've probably caused a lot of woodland creatures to skip town because I never leave my house.
For those of you who are stil...
So, you've decided to move out?
Experience Points is a series in which I highlight some of the most memorable things about a particular game. These can include anything from a specific scene or moment, a character, a weapon or item, a level or location, a p...
No mention of pigeon milk in the song
I always love a good Laura Shigihara piano/vocal piece. Though she is probably best known for the iconic credits song from Plants vs. Zombies, these days when her name comes up I mostly think about To the Moon's haunting "Ev...
