Okay this going to a weird one. Found what appears to be promo art for the GCN title. It is of the character Akari Hayami who in earlier character art (game unveiling?) has the text "Snowboard NST" written on her top, while in the final game was released the colours were completely changed and the text became "Twist Girl". As we know, NST stands for Nintendo Software Technology who developed the game.

My immediate reaction upon seeing this is to find out whether this has happened to Wave Race: Blue Storm as well. Alas, this doesn't seem to be the case. I can't find any good screenshot online so I'll have to re-connect my Wii (never used my GameCube since I had a Wii), but I doubt I'll get to see anything intelligible in-game.
The entire reason I came across this art was because I was searching for that 2D character art for Wave Race: Blue Storm and came across the 1080 Avalanche character art. I couldn't really find many pictures of the WR:BS character art, so I assume it hasn't changed.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
