In Tomato Adventure, the victory theme resembles Super Mario RPG's victory theme. What I mean is that both of these are songs that are played after you win small battles in both RPGs.
In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, there is some crab-looking creature with a Christmas Tree on top of it. This creature came from the sunken ship place in Tomato Adventure as an enemy.
A couple of Tomato Adventure soundtracks were found hidden in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga after people dumped its entire track list into GSF files. Their quality is similar to the sound of Game Boy Color music, which probably means that they are the tracks used in the Game Boy Color prototype of Tomato Adventure, Gimmick Land. They were perhaps also used in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga for testing its audio.
Huge necrobump, but I haven't seen this cameo mentioned on the site. It's a rather minor one but comes in the game rather lately.
When you get outside Hanzou Lab 6 (links Soy City with Balsami Dome; it's the bottom left one on the map) it's a small dump site with several objects partially buried in the ground. Two of these are Game Boy Colors (well they look like Game Boy Colors but they have buttons like this "+---"), the top left one is a red Game Boy Color and the bottom right is a purple one. They both have smashed screens.
I only have played through a real Tomato Adventure cartridge so unfortunately can't get any good screenshots at the moment.
Shoddy 3DS Camera placeholder screenshot:
Also, I think Parrothead mentioned this somewhere else on the Internet. The overworld map in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga is reminiscent of the one in Tomato Adventure (with Bowser's Castle in the centre replacing the Gimmick Palace).
edit 1: Also, I don't know what to make of this but one of the in-game sound effects (e.g. when one of the Hanzou brothers makes you a new Gimmick) sounds really similar to one of the horrible static noises when you pull a GBA cartridge out of the console when the game is still running. I manually pulled out Tomato Adventure but the sounds don't match, and since Koto Battle was GBC I don't know what to make of it, though maybe I should try it with Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga later <

"(Nintendo) E4 (')07 EE(!) is one of my favourite colours lol.
Nester the Lark: I've had similar thoughts the past several months. What do I really use social media for? I don't interact a whole lot, so for me, it's more about getting content. "Less about the social, more about the media" as I like to put it.

nocturnal YL: On second thought, maybe I should give Bluesky a try. I was actually considering Mastodon as a replacement of X and didn't really think much of Bluesky since posts are viewable by members only, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.

Evie ❤✿: I relate with that and Twitter. I started using it and got addicted to scrolling, retweeting things. Nowadays I come back in short waves, or learning about media like you. Unfortunately it's hard to keep track and Musk doesn't like datascraping.

Evie ❤✿: The other reason I use it is to follow art channels I like, specifically to browse cute art.

nocturnal YL: I have got a Bluesky account. I'll consider actually posting later. And I haven't even used X for at least a month. There are a few X users I'm interested in re-following (in a general sense) if they have accounts elsewhere.

nocturnal YL: The problem with being completely sucked into Surge Concerto's world is that I can't actually look them up outside of the game, since everything, including some official media, is spoiler. It's the same issue as BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light.

Evie ❤✿: Cool ^^ Sorry to hear that Hope you have fun with the games until you don't have to avoid the spoilers.

Evie ❤✿: I've been fed up with online editors and software which claims to be free but isn't. -_- I've usually joined an image with audio w/Avidemux which actually is open source. Now I just use FFMPEG to do same for less clicking. I'm satisfied this way though. ^^

Evie ❤✿: I think microblogging sounds nice too. I might try it myself one day. ^^ Twitter/X's character limit is restricting, as is the organisation/discovery of tweets. Don't worry about audience, it isn't important tho if u want one I'm sure will get1 eventually.

Evie ❤✿: Funnily enough there is a recent Hatsune Miku/Pokémon collab called Pokémon feat. Hatsune Miku Project Voltage 18 Types 18 Songs where it imagines if Hatsune Miku was a Pokémon Trainer and what Pokémon she'd use.

Nester the Lark: Sony has announced a State of Play for tomorrow after the Direct. Didn't they do this last September, also? EDIT: Yes, they did.
Sept 13, 2023 16:04:08 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Not a bad Direct. I'll post my impressions later.

Nester the Lark: So, I still don't know if NST had anything to do with Mario vs. Donkey Kong on Switch, but plot twist! They *did* develop F-Zero 99.

nocturnal YL: About a quarter done in Ciel nosurge DX (1/3 story, about 1/5 items). Absolutely love the story, but the gameplay is pretty bad. Wouldn't have liked it at all in its original online, real-time-only form.

Nester the Lark: Apparently, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 won the Award of Excellence at TGS.

nocturnal YL: This is unexpected. His name is almost synonymous with the studio.

nocturnal YL: Surge Concerto (and the overall Ar Tonelico series, from what I know) has deep lore and unfathomable dark stories on top of rather shallow gameplay. It's in some ways a far more extreme version of the BLUE REFLECTION series.
Sept 26, 2023 14:08:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Game design similarities aside, I'm surprised that the same developer behind Atelier can make something like this. Not exactly my cup of tea, but that's an extra layer of appreciation I have for them.
