We want to give you some cool things to make your back to school as fun as possible so we hope you enter for a chance to win! Huge thank you to everyone who responded to our Instagram question and shared your school gaming memory with us. They were a ton of fun to read.

Yo-kai Watch Blasters

Here’s a first character profile for Yo-kai Watch Blasters:

  • Rudy

You may know him as who Jibanyan was prior to him becoming a Yo-kai. But in Yo-kai Watch Blasters: Red Cat Corps and White Dog Squad, players can control him directly for the first time in the Yo-kai Watch series!

Yo-kai Watch Blasters (3DS) comes out on September 7th in Europe and North America.

Super Mario Odyssey pins

Looking for some Super Mario Odyssey pins? The Penny Arcade Store got you covered with the Super Mario Odyssey Capture Set, which includes the following pins:

  • Chain Chomp
  • Bullet Bill
  • Cheep Cheep
  • Mario

Mario’s latest adventure united him with Cappy, a cheerful hat whose ability to assume control of objects and creatures to gain their power proved enormously useful in combating Bowser’s shenanigans. This pin set commemorates some of the most useful abilities gained through this process, those of the Cheep-Cheep, Chain-Chomp and Bullet Bill.
