Do you count returning cameos in remakes? Kirby Super Star Ultra still has the Stone ability transformations in the original. Don't know if you will count the HAL logo cameo as well.
Also with Kirby Ultra, if you count the HAL block cameo in Kirby's Adventure, Ultra has it as well.
Tell me if you need more info on these.
...More to come!
- One of its soundtracks in Fire Emblem 11 is taken from FE9. Having never played the game though, I cannot tell where it takes place. (Track 33 here: Serenes Forest FE11 track listing) - FE12 has the same FE8 music in the same places (arena and training grounds), having reused many of the FE11 things. The FE9 battle music did not return. - In the same manner, FE8 has FE2 and FE4 music (FE8 arena battle = FE2 player phase battle, FE8 areana prepatation = FE4 prologue map theme). (I would view FE cameos to be too in-series, seeing that picking music from previous games, as well as recurring characters like the fourth wall-breaking Anna and the Ike-loving Aimee, are a series-wide tradition) - You mentioned the G-ZERO cameo also in Star Fox Command in X-Scape, but you did not mention G-ZERO in the Star Fox Command page.
Here is not the place for posting changes or new cameos. Please do that in the cameo board.
Also, YL, I sent you a request for more details on the KSS and KSSU HAL room to your private messages a couple days ago, as you mentioned they were there, but never actually said where (at least, you didn't in the cameos board or in an email).

I know it's been on the site since before the update, but I absolutely love how Nester's cameo in NES Play Action Football says, "Submitted by Nester." It's like he submitted his own cameo, which of course is exactly what Nester would do! I hope that's what people think if they see that.
Adapting old cameos (e.g. WarioWare: Twisted) with people's modern forum names was weird. I had to keep checking to make sure I had the right one.
Theq... not to be confused with The Qu. ;D
The Qu... Your contribution has not gone unnoticed. Several members have been meticulous in their cameo hunting over the years, and I feel I have been letting you all down. Hopefully, this goes someway towards making up for that!

Just wondering, if I did mention the fact that Capsule J in Kirby Super Star has been based on Konami's Twinbee, is it a cameo? Twinbee just was quite hot stuff around kids in that time, so it's no wonder they used him as the base on Jet-ability's helper.
I would like to know if it was based on Twinbee, or it was later decided that it looked too much like Twinbee and so they'd better change it.
I've been wondering about this one for a while... Not sure if it's supposed to be a cameo or not...
And The Qu... I'm not sure it was about time. I've nearly abandoned the site a few times, but I keep coming back. I was starting to think I was never going to manage it. I'd still like to know if I'll ever get the Smash Bros. cameos up! ;D

None confirms this, but seeing how popular Twinbee was back in 90's (Twinbee Paradise and such), it might be no wonder. It could've been a tribute to Twinbee, but later Nintendo decided to play safe and change the character design.
Maybe it could be worth of mentioning that, though?
I have done a big ol' overhaul of the Nintendo 3DS game pages, including all packaged, downloaded and included software, and then slipped all the cameos in.
The pages are also showing off a new style that I've been working on. Why? Because this style makes it easier to cover multi-game miniseries titles (e.g. the DSiWare "Express" games, which have been a problem in the current design). It also forces me to write a short intro. I will be rolling this out, starting with 3DS, Wii and DS, so I shouldn't fall so far behind.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
Feb 24, 2021 18:35:31 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.
