Limited Run Games opening Star Wars NES/Game Boy preorders on June 28th, 2019

During E3 2019, Limited Run Games teased re-releases of classic Star Wars games on the NES and Game Boy. Today they shared full details of those releases, including the packaging. You'll be able to grab preorders for both of these titles on June 28th, 2019, at both 10 AM and 6 PM. I would imagine these are going to get scooped up really quickly, so get ready to lock in your preorder!

Famicom game Pizza Pop! gets a fan translation

Did you ladies order a pizza?

Let no Famicom game go untranslated! That's how fan translators feel, anyway! They're out to translate any/all titles that never left Japan, and the latest to get the fan translation treatment is Pizza Pop! from Jaleco. The game follows a pizza delivery guy who's looking to earn some dough to buy a diamond ring for his girlfriend. This delivery guy will have to run, jump, and ride vehicles to reach his delivery goals.

Nintendo Treehouse Live's error screen is fantastic

The hall that Nintendo is holding their Treehouse Live stream in at E3 2019 just suffered a momentary power outage. During that issue, the Treehouse Live stream went down. It was quickly replaced with an error screen that Nintendo had prepared in advance, and it's absolutely fantastic. Nintendo certainly knows their Zelda history!
