New NES Cartridges: Jay & Bob, Rollie

NintendoSock Full of QuartersVia YouTube and Spoony Bard Productions.: Jay and Silent Bob: Mall Brawl - Gameplay Reveal Trailer! There isn't a ton of gameplay here - and no music. But it's the first big reveal of it as an actual thing. The game was apparently teased in mid July but nobody seemed to pick up on it - and pre-orders are up in a few places too.

If you want to see actual game footage with audio, check out this tweet. Fans of Mighty Final Fight and Double Dragon may be interested in this one.

Limited Run Games will be putting up Limited Edition Yellow, Green, and Grey Deluxe Editions on September 6 for $84.99 a pop. The game has no release date at this time. A cartridge-only pre-order was on their backer kit but seems to have since been removed.

Also on Kickstarter, there's Rollie: A new game for the Classic Nintendo (NES)

. The game cartridges are due early next year and it's set for digital platforms as well as an honest-to-goodness NES cartridge.

Nintendo Switch This Week

Nintendo SwitchSuper Kirby Clash This week's batch of titles on the eShop: Super Kirby Clash, Arcade Archives Pinball, River City Girls, and several dozen others.

Nintendo Switch Online added 20 Super NES games, some good and some less good. Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Super Metroid are obligatory. Demon's Crest is an inspired choice. Super Tennis is sort of confusing - I remember those being available for next to nothing at the end of the Super NES retail run.

NES Jay & Bob Cartridge Pre-Orders Up

NintendoJay and Silent Bob Mall Brawl (NES) [PREORDER]Via Limited Run Games: Jay and Silent Bob Mall Brawl (NES) [PREORDER]! The basic cartridge in grey, yellow, and green are up as is a limited edition version that probably sold out. The boxed game is a pretty standard $54.99.

This may well be the first new retro game since the end of the NES to feature licensed characters. There's very little about the actual game out there, the developer pointed me to a Twitch stream from late last week that shows people playing the game.

I'm unsure if I'll order it or not yet, as curiosity and FOMO is up against logic and reason. I loved Micro Mages and Nebs N Debs, but my luck with licensed games has been mixed. For every TMNT II you get Star Wars. And sometimes you get weirdness like The Goonies and The Goonies II, which are wonderful life-changing experiences. This looks a lot like Mighty Final Fight or River City Ransom.

PC Engine and TurboGrafx-16 Mini Consoles Quite Large

Video GamesTurbo MiniVia Jeremy Parish on Twitter at the Tokyo Game Show: "Size comparison. Cracking up that they maintained scale for these based on the PCE Mini, so the TG-16 Mini is still a massive American behemoth."

It's still bigger than the US controller, but it does have a smaller footprint than the genuine article. But not by much.
