Nintendo TVii Available In Japan At Launch

The Big N has revealed that the  TVii will be available for Japan the same day that it’s released there on December 8. Nintendo TVii will also be available for some European regions in 2013. The application will be available to users in December. There hasn’t been a firm date for North America for this service. The Japanese TV guide data is from Rovi’s C-Guide service and will be available to use anytime, even during a game or TV show. This feature will cost Japanese Wii U owners ¥100, but will be free for North American users.

Skyward Sword’s Zelda Harp Replica

If you’re looking for some of the most dedicated fanbase, it’s hard to come by a more faithful following than fans of the Legend of Zelda franchise. And sometimes on the interwebs, you find one of those exceptionally well made replicas of items in game and that’s exactly what Etsy user PerfectTommyAutomail has done with the Skyward Sword Harp! The harp itself looks amazing, even though it’s made from a plastic called urethane and the strings are from twisted brass. Unfortunaltely the strings aren’t exactly playable but the workmanship and accuracy on this fanmade piece is amazing! If you’re looking into getting this, it’ll be a hefty $200 and it’ll also be made to order too.
