Hot Topic gets a slew of new Epic Mickey shirts

That's pretty epic

Epic Mickey is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and it seems Disney has allowed for the creation of some new Epic Mickey-themed t-shirts in honor of the milestone.

You can check out the full catalog of Epic Mickey shirts on Hot Topic's website.

Super Mario Galaxy mod lets Mario run around in Pokemon Diamond

Gotta catch'em all, Mario!

Nintendo fans are always cooking up unique mods for Nintendo's games, and the latest mashes up two complete different genres.

Pokemon art director shows off original character designs for Pokemon Battle Revolution

Traveling back to 2009

James Turner, art director for the Pokemon series, has gone digging through his trunk of old works and stumbled upon something from the Wii era. Turner found the original character designs he did for Pokemon Battle Revolution, which launched all the way back in 2009. These designs are just about identical to what you see in the final game. Looks like the work translated extremely well in-game!

As you can see in the panels above, Smash Bros. comes up as a point of discussion in one episode. Pretty cool to see such a straightforward mention like that!
