Protip: This is a really bad question to ask when visiting the National Mall. We have 8 buildings surrounding the Mall, and a total of 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo. A S.H.I.E.L.D agent should know better!
(We think she means the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in this case.)
I love that this is on the Smithsonian’s tumblr
Whoever does social media for the Smithsonian is awesome.
New Smash Bros. coming to 3DS this summer ⊟
… and this Winter for Wii U. Not great news for those hoping to play this on a big screen TV, but it’s awesome for people who are fans of tiny cartridges, which I believe we have a few of.
Along with offering 60 FPS gameplay even while in stereoscopic 3D mode, the 3DS version will have an exclusive Smash Run mode. The mode has you and up to three other players fighting a mix of enemies from Nintendo games in a huge dungeon, gathering power-ups and eventually battling each other.
Both the Wii U and 3DS versions will feature online multiplayer, allowing you to play For Fun or For Glory (detailed in shots above!). They’ll also offer Charizard and Greninja as playable fighters!
Here are the folks announced for the new Smash Bros. so far ⊟
The top image contains the new Smash Bros. game’s Assist Trophies (here’s a version with the Metroid shown this morning), while the other pic shows the playable characters with their ancillary buddies, like Olimar with his Pikmin. Both are from Neorice, who is on Tumblr so you should follow him.
Don’t forget that there will be a Nintendo Direct dedicated to the 3DS/Wii U game tomorrow, streaming at 6PM ET (12AM EU time) — we’ll probably see one or two new faces to add to the roster!
Finally found the time to finish these pieces!

Image 1: The bottom-left cartouche features the kanji 鳴戸, which is read naruto, meaning ‘whirlpool’. (Note: uzumaki has a similar meaning, translated as ‘maelstrom’.)
The top-right cartouche contains the kanji 古祟翻恵, loosely meaning “An ancient curse becomes a blessing”.
Image 2: The top-left cartouche contains the symbols 龍毬, literally meaning ‘dragon’ and ‘orb’.
The bottom-right cartouche features the kanji 不憩奮励, meaning ‘Never resting, striving higher’.
Image 3: The left cartouche features the kanji 末撓気師, literally meaning “the last bending air master”.
The right cartouche contains the characters 土火気水, which mean ‘earth, fire, air, water’.
I am a big admirer of Jed Henry’s art and all that he has done to sustain and spread the craft of traditional Japanese woodblock printing. I have been meaning to contact him about doing a print for our show for a while now, and also just to tell him how much I love his work. So I am overjoyed that he chose Avatar as the subject for one of his wonderful reinterpretations, the third beautiful image here. So cool! Thanks, Jed! I hope we connect soon.
The last time Batman appeared in a Warner Bros. animated production in the Bruce Timm “style,” it was in the Justice League Unlimited series, which ended in 2004.
Now, the big-eared, Timm-designed version of Batman is back in a new short for Cartoon Network’s DC Nation block, titled Batman Strange Days, which finds the Dark Knight taking on Hugo Strange and a mysterious, Solomon Grundy-like giant. It looks dark –virtually black and white or sepia — and features Batman firing a huge gun evocative of Gundam Wing‘s Twin Buster Rifle marked “tear gas.”
I’ve been biting my tongue about this one for a while! Go Bruce!
