Conker’s Bad Fur Day. It is one of the most highly regarded games in the N64’s library. It’s also one of the raunchiest, if not the raunchiest, N64 game that isn’t South Park. Given how messed up the game is and how poorly it initially sold, you’d think this would never get an advertisement. But it did. And it is glorious. Thus, the Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, me) shall present to you the ad for Conker’s Bad Fur Day in this week’s Retro Wrap-Up.

Here are the highlights of the past week.

The Wii U got a beefy update, giving it the ability to play Wii games off the Wii U gamepad, improvements to SpotPass and the Internet browser, and more.

Also, Nintendo released another Nintendo Direct. Highlights from this one include a new Kirby game, Sonic returning to the next Smash Bros. games, and an English trailer for the cast of Bravely Default.

Crystal Baltimore reviews Sweet Fuse: At Your Side for the PSP and Vita, Steve Baltimore reviews Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness for the PS3, and Phil Schipper reviews Electronic Super Joy and 5 Days a Stranger by Yahtzee of Zero Punctuation in this week’s Retro Review.

FLCL will be airing on Cartoon Network once again, this time via Toonami.

Justin Graham examines Vampire Hunter D in this week’s Anime of the Past.

Angela Hinck features Cosmic Star Heroine in this week’s Crowdfunding Spotlight.

In addition, the Kickstarters for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero and Mighty No. 9 have officially ended, having respectively pulled in $800,000 (USD) and $4 million in donations.

We’ve put together a pre-order guide for the next generation of Microsoft and Sony consoles being released later this year.

Sadly, there are still no new updates regarding The Last Guardian.

Language Automation, Inc., whom we partnered up with awhile back, created a short web series called Going Gold, A Localized Journey.

Finally, Sega is making a new Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon called Sonic Boom.
