This week is all about fall, which means....new splatoon and animal crossing badges.

Also what happened to Joe? :p

So, this is interesting. I rage quit on my last play yesterday after I purchased 5 plays and, as usual, got jack shit from it. I held the power button and put the 3DS away in disgust. I started the game up again today, and to my surprise, the Arcade Bunny appeared and told me that I didn't finish my game yesterday. He reiterated his boss's no-refunds policy but said that, just this once, he'd let me play again, and I got my 5 free plays back.

Once this sale ends, though, I think I'm done buying plays, which I've barely bought lately anyway. I've long since run out of room to put badges, and unless Badge Arcade gets ported to Switch, I just feel like I won't be playing my 3DS that much longer in the future to "enjoy" the badges.

You can now users badges and sent them in messages in the new messaging app. Forgot the English name.

(Wow, does nobody care about the service anymore? This is a big bump)

So in celebration of Zelda's 30th, there's some crossover badges that have been made. Isabelle as Link, Nikki as Zelda, that sort of thing. But we also have a collaboration that's... well, just look.



Yes, that is Wario as the Majora's Mask moon.
Yes, this is the greatest badge to come out of this service.
Yes, you need this badge as soon as it comes out in NA/EU.

I just follow that Twitter account that says what the day's badges are and then log in when Rhythm Heaven shows up. Or Pushmo, at the moment, since I still need a good Pushmo badge for my Pushmo folder.

Since Joe's been busy with S&M stuff, if you want to find the Japanese updates you can visit this blog: http://hibigamebiyori.blog.fc2.com/

I wonder how much longer they'll update the game? They definitely have higher-res versions of the badges ready, so I can see them porting to Switch. The only question is if they'd allow us to transfer the badges we already won.

I have never missed a day since it launched. Closing in on 5K badges.

In honor of the Switch presentation, there's a BUNCH of those pixel console/handheld badges available, including some new ones like Gamecube & Wii U.

There's even a badge of the top loader NES with ROB.

Yep, that's exactly what it is.

I was so excited when I went through the preamble with Baito-kun only to be greeted with 2 new sets. Oh well. Hope there will be more throughout the week. Glad he went Fanbunny with the Switch hype, though!

DON'T try to grab them. Use the left claw arm to push the edge of the box to "roll" it.

Yeah sorry. I kind of fell out of the funk with this thread due to Sun & Moon. I'll start posting again :)

Just had a really weird bug with the practice catcher, I dropped a badge off to the side, and it did the animation for it falling down, but there was no sound and no number popped up. When I dropped the next one down the number went up by two. I wonder what the hell happened down there.

Man I really hope they carry this over to the Switch. Really fun way to customize the system.

Me too. Really hoping the OS looking pretty plain doesn't end up making it a "no fun allowed" type deal. I love how much crap I can do with my 3DS.

Where is this stuff in the US? C'mon, Nintendo!
TODAY!

Also oh god, so I spent $4, it was doing the transition slide to the part where it shows all the badges I gotten, then the game froze & it said something happened where it had to restart the system........BUT THANK GOD, it saved the badges just before the game got locked.

& I am now 4 badges short of a whopping 2,000.

Sorry guys. Fell off the routine again

This week, in Japan

Pokémon



Animal Crossing



Also, today, Baito held a special Badge Arcade Direct



In it, he revealed, directly to us, a new game - Crazy Galaxy



Obviously this is an April Fools :p

Crazy Galaxy

This is the worst April Fool's joke imaginable because I would absolutely play a weird outer space RPG(?) with character designs by Ko Takeuchi that inexplicably stars Ashley
 

KRILL ME NOW

How?

Plenty of things started as April Fools jokes. Case in point...



Technically Akuma may not have been a direct result of the Shen Long April Fools joke in EGM, but there's a good chance he was. Gouken definitely was, but who needs him when you have the OG? If enough people make a ruckus, this might happen. Besides, didn't Nintendo promise new IP's in the near future? Maybe this is testing the waters.
