So there's been a few big ol' updates to StreetPass: Mii Plaza lately, and I'd quite like to update all the cameo information on them.
Puzzle Swap Nintendo recently added a bunch of puzzles, and players were given a panel from a random puzzle. Within a few days I think I'd managed to get at least one piece from each new puzzle. Here's my full list. Are there any I'm missing?: 1. Metroid: Other M 2. Mario & Bowser 3. Super Mario Galaxy 2 4. The Legend of Zelda 5. Kirby's Dream Land 6. Pikmin 7. New Super Mario Bros. Wii 8. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D 9. Star Fox 64 3D 10. Super Mario 3D Land 11. Mario Kart 7 12. Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise 13. Donkey Kong Country Returns 14. Pilotwings Resort 15. Kid Icarus Uprising 16. Fire Emblem: Awakening 17. Mario Tennis Open 18. Kirby's 20th Anniversary 19. New Super Mario Bros. 2 20. Kirby's Adventure Wii 21. Animal Crossing: New Leaf 22. Luigi's Mansion 2 23. Dillon's Rolling Western: The Last Ranger 24. Xenoblade Chronicles 25. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword 26. New Super Mario Bros. U + New Super Luigi U 27. Heroines (looks like Pauline, Peach, Rosalina & Zelda)
Hats & Costumes With the new update, hats are now called costumes. There seems to be a load of new game-based ones, but I can't find a full list anywhere. I have "Rhythm Monkey" from Rhythm Heaven, which is awesome. I also have Link & Donkey Kong Outfits, which are the same as the hats, but full-body wear. On an non-cameo-related note, the T-Rex Hat is awesome!

27? Twenty-seven? Yep, you missed one, because you live in Europe. Between Kirby 20th and NSMB2, there should be a Dr Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training: Can You Stay Focused? (Brain Age: Concentration Training) puzzle.

I've been sitting on a bunch of tickets in case awesome ones pop up (lovin' that C.Falcon helmet). According to that list no Earthbound hats sadly, but if Google translate's correct there's a King Dedede and Tingle(!) hat coming up.
Though I don't think Tingle'll be creepier than that devilish Dr. Kawashima hat
Well now, I haven’t been here in a while, and I’m kinda surprised to see no one mentioned this before but, there are quite a few cameos in Flower Town / Mii Garden. So, here I am with screenshots to boot since Flower Town lets you take pictures of your garden.
Flower Town / Mii Garden has jobs you can complete to earn certain rewards, such as flower pots. Some of these are based on different colored pipes from the Mario games.
You get the green pipe from completing the job “Hospital Visit” (which is called “Get Well Soon” in Europe).
You get the red pipe from completing the job “Bridal Bouquet.”
You get the yellow pipe from completing the job “The Picky Patient.”
And this, well, it might not actually be a Mario cameo, it might just be a brick block. But, well, you get the brick block (which is called the brick planter) by completing the job “The Fall Fragrance” (which is called “Fleeting Fragrance” in Europe). I guess you can decide if it counts or not.
You can also unlock items to buy at Garden Grace that you can use to decorate your garden. Two of these are Mario cameos.
You can get the Piranha Plant Topiary by completing the job “A Mysterious Job.”
You can get the Yoshi Topiary by completing the job “The Final Job.”
By the way, I have all of the Nintendo hats and costumes you can get. Flower Town allows you to take pictures of your Mii so if you want, I can get you screenshots of all the hats. Not the costumes though, Flower Town automatically takes off costumes.
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...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
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.
