UPDATE: It seems as though this has all been a prank that uses an in-game clothes editing feature to disguise an innocent dress as a risqué conversation piece.

And quite frankly, the clothes that can be made with this are impressive. Choose a source for more pictures and information, they're all a good read.

Monster Hunter 3G
boosts the 3DS system sales into the best weekly sales number yet at 378,114 units. The game itself in just two days sold 471,055 copies, that's just shy of half-a-freaking-million. The 3DS is doing good now, it's safe to say, despite it's terrible launch. These are Japanese sales (duh).(source)

You heard right, folks. Japan will be seeing a slew of special hardware bundles later this year, in addition to the new and/or limited edition units currently available. Some of these have a catch, though, so read on to find more information and to see if you can snag one of these delicious imports at a website near you

Since the price drop, the three dimensional unit started printing money, at least in Japan, and it really is printing a lot. Take a look at the number of sales of each machine for the week ending on September 25, 2011. It's killing it's competition. And yes, the PSP GO sold fifteen units this past week... fifteen, total. I guess it's more than I dunno, seven
So while things sound glum for the big N, the truth is that it's not really that bad at all. I guess maybe some of us just feel butt-hurt that we aren't getting any rain! c'mon already Nintendo! deliver the goods!
These numbers come from Media Create via Gamasutra.

Xenoblade is a role playing game released on a Nintendo TV-based console that isn't the Super Nintendo. If that's not an odd sentence to read then the next one's going to be a shocker. It's developed by Nintendo as well -- or more accurately a subsidiary of them. The big question is, though, can it live up to Nintendo's usual standards? Most definitely.

First, let me tell you it's terrible that I even have to wright this post, people need to stop taking random unverified news as legit news and spread it around as if it's fact. You may be seeing Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking messages circulate the internet about Satoshi Tajiri, the father of Pokemon having died after the initial quake in Japan. Well those are all spread rumors that are just not true! Satoshi Tajiri is alive!
Someone started some hoax, and without checking sources people spread this rumor as fact, and it filled up social networking sites, and friends have begun telling each other over the phone and emails, and it's gotten pretty big. Please spread the good news and stop the false bad news if you can. And if you want to help out with donations to Japan check out our dedicated donation page
with different options for doing just that. Also using one of the links on that page, you can click the people finder and see that Satoshi Tajiri is alive

If you haven't heard already, Japan was hit by a 8.9 scale earthquake yesterday. This is a very large earthquake, the biggest in Japans recorded history actually, and has caused a lot of damage, injuries, and deaths in the country, while many other people are still missing. N+ wants to do everything it can to help out, so we are trying to get as many options together as we can for you to help if this is something you are interested in:
Keep in mind that if you send text message donations your regular text message rate plan with your wireless provider still applies. Did we miss any other ways to help out? Let us know!
As a side-note Nintendo of America has Twittered an update about the status of Nintendo of Japan:
NintendoAmerica Nintendo of America
Thanks for your concern! During the earthquake no one at Nintendo in Japan was injured and there was no apparent structural damage.

Once more Nintendo is releasing products for Japanese gamers that the rest of the world can only covet (or import, in any case). It wasn't enough that they're releasing the Super Mario All Stars bundle
in Japan and Europe and the sexy-looking Mario-red Wii
in Sushiland, now they've also announced that two limited-edition DSi consoles are coming to the Japanese market: Pokémon Black & White.
Each handheld version, according to the color you choose, will come bundled with the corresponding version of the Pokémon game. They've also set the release date to November 20th. and say the special versions will cost almos 5,000 Yen more than a regular DSi, at an MSRP of 19,800 Yen (around US$240).

Be still, my heart! If the lusty black Wii wasn't enough to get your desire going, wait until you see the newest addition to Wii flavors: Mario Red. Well, for Japan at least...
Nintendo has announced that, in addition to releasing the lovely bundle with Super Mario All Stars in the Land of the Rising Sun, it will be launching a pretty, red Wii console to mark Super Mario's 25th. Birthday (my parents only gave me clothing for my 25th. Birthday... o_O).
The console will include the new Wii Remote Plus (also in red, of course) and a modified copy of Super Mario Bros. pre-installed; the modification to the original game is that the coin/surprise blocks will have the number '25' instead of the classic '?' sign. The console will be on sale at Japanese stores on November 11th. and will carry a price tag of 20,000 Yen (around US$240). The new Wii Remote Plus is also set to be released for individual sale on the same date for 3,800 Yen (about US$46). No word yet on an outside-Japan release yet.

It's a tabloid, right? So everything they say has to be questioned, right? Those tabloid junkies can't be telling the truth, can they? With the price they're setting on the 3DS, let's hope THEY'RE NOT... German tabloid "Bild" has published an article where it 'outs' Nintendo's 3DS release date in Japan, price and launch titles included.
According to the article (which, by the way, neglected to state its sources) the handheld system will hit the shelves on November 11th, 2010 and will have an estimated retail price of €200 (USD$270). The date, at least, coincides somehow with past Nintendo launches, so it's not such a farfetched notion; they just put a precise date on a popular speculation. As for the pricing, let's hope they got it wrong and the system is not that expensive.
The article also goes ahead and 'reveals' Nintendo's launch titles to be "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time", "Mario Kart 3DS", and "Professor Layton and the Mask Of Miracle".
Nintendo is set to make an OFFICIAL statement in two days (September 29th). Maybe they will also comment on the rumored new WiiMote
