As you all probably heard, Nintendo will not have a keynote at E3 this year. Instead, they will do more of their own Nintendo Direct video presentations leading up to the show, and present small, closed-door meetings at E3 proper (and likely have a show floor presence).
An announcement was made today that tomorrow morning, at 7AM Pacific time, we will be getting our first Nintendo Direct of this type. This one is to be about upcoming Wii U games for summer and fall 2013. You know what that means! If they are set to reveal Retro Studio’s new game, and actual details on the next Smash Bros, this is the first place we might see them. Fingers crossed!
There will be other Nintendo Direct for Europe tomorrow as well, and possibly Japan, so be on the lookout for news.
No Star Fox or Smash this time. The direct was mostly about the new Mario and Sonic Winter Olympic Games, Pikmen 3, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Resident Evil, New Super Luigi U, and a bunch of little details and launch dates on games that we already knew about or expected. There will be another Nintendo Direct coming “around the time of E3,” so we’ll have to look forward to that.

Engadget is reporting (via GoNintendo) that recent checkins of Google’s Chrome OS have used Fox, Falco, Slippy, Peppy, Mario, Sonic, etc as placeholders for upcoming devices that will boot directly to Chrome OS. Glad we have some fellow Star Fox fans among the engineers at Google.

As promised, here’s a new episode of the Krystal Archive Podcast. This time I go over Further Confusion, my current life situation, and some plans to use third-party systems to improve the Krystal Archive.

I made a couple of small changes to the Krystal Music page, a couple of the files were missing and an astute person mentioned that we didn’t have the song from when Krystal gets trapped in the crystal.
I’m planning to do another podcast episode this weekend. There’s been a LOT of stuff going on in my RL life, so I have much to tell with regard to updates and why I haven’t been responding to emails. Thanks for being patient. All will be explained soon.

Sorry for the long wait. After years of delays and many hours of editing the past couple days, I’m proud to finally be able to release the interview you’ve all be waiting to hear. I decided to make it a video interview much like the previous FATPodcast episode we posted a couple months back. Which voice actress? I’ll give you two guesses!
Edit: Happy April Fools’ Day Everybody!

Sorry for the delay, but DarkFantasyTV has posted his interview with Alésia Glidewell, the voice of Krystal in Star Fox Assault and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, among other characters. There is also some extra, behind the scenes video (language warning) and some additional blog posts about Alésia’s more recent work.

As promised, her’s two other videos of Ayano cosplaying as Krystal from Further Confusion 2011. The first video is someone handing her their Subway sandwich, a la the “Krystal can’t enjoy her sandwich” meme. The second one is about a small wardrobe malfunction she experienced. The little clips on the sides of her loincloth have a tendency to fall off (one fell off this year too).
Downloads of the full version are available too!

This is the sister video to the Friends Forever video posted back in February 2011. It’s over 20 minutes of footage of Ayano cosplaying as Krystal at Further Confusion 2011. She walks the halls, interacts with con goers, sees the sights, walks in the fursuit parade, and visits the dealer’s den. There are lots of interesting moments spread throughout the video.
I’m spectacularly late with this video! FoxType1973 sent me a DVD of his recordings more than a year ago. I really have no excuse for taking this long before finally uploading it. I figured I should post this before the video from 2013 is ready. ;)
There are two more videos from the 2011 Further Confusion already uploaded and ready for posting, but I’m going to spread them out for a few days. Look forward to them!
Here’s the original video for download.

With Silfur Nakamura’s permission, I’ve enhanced the podcast audio with video and images from the con, as well as a little textual commentary from me. That means a bunch of photos and video of Ayano as Krystal, a preview of what’s to come. You’ll love it!
