So, Nintendo officially revealed what appears to be a new form of Mewtwo. Officially, they claim that it’s a brand new Pokemon with a connection to Mewtwo, but it’s worth remembering that they pulled this kind of stunt before. In any case, the Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, me) took the opportunity to take another look at old Pokemon commercials. So sit back and relax as we take a look at the Generation II in this week’s Retro Wrap-Up.

And, of course, we have this gem.

Here are the highlights of the past week.

Project X Zone has an official release date for North America and Europe. Get excite!

Steve Baltimore reviews Hyper Dimension Neptunia Victory for the PS3, Crystal Baltimore reviews Coaster Creator 3D for the 3DS, and Angela Hinck reviews Alphadia for iOS and Android in this week’s Game of the Past.

European JRPG publisher Ghostlight explains why they’re bringing more of their titles to the PC.

Raymond Dwyer gives us a handy price guide for cheap, niche titles in the first installment of Pricefall.

Intelligent Systems, the developers behind the Fire Emblem franchise, say that they’re still interested in the Advance Wars series as well.

Tales of Xillia gets an official North American release date. Get excite!

More rumors are popping up regarding Bravely Defualt: Flying Fairy’s localization. Let’s hope they’re true this time.

Justin Graham takes a look at Fist of the North Star: The Movie in this week’s Anime of the Past.
