Here’s the preview for the 4th episode of the Yoiko x Indies webshow, featuring Mr Shity and Death Squared:

This episode will go live tomorrow at 11PM PT (June 11th) / 2AM ET / 7AM BST / 8AM CEST / 3PM JST (June 12th).

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Yesterday, Intelligent Systems announced that a drama CD based on Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia will be released on August 17th in Japan. It features Alm, Lukas, Python, Forsyth, Tobin, Kliff, Faye, Silque… basically, only the characters from Alm’s side of the story. This sort of implies a second Drama CD, this time focusing on Celica’s side, will be released at a later date!

Here’s what the cover looks like:

You can find more details about the album over at the official website (only in Japanese)!

Animal Crossing (GameCube)

Through extensive reverse engineering, jamcham has managed to find a way to unlock the developer mode in Animal Crossing on GameCube. The interesting thing is you don’t really need anything, other than a controlle, and a rgular retail copy of the game… no cheat tools or console mods!

Here’s the cheat code to unlock the developer mode (enter it a second time to disable Developer Mode)
