What’s Up With Itoi

  • Nothing too interesting from Itoi this week, mostly stuff about the Olympics. I did notice a rise in the number of Mr. Saturns appearing in his office pics, though. Here are a couple.

I found 2 caps >_>

Pigmask Private said on Jan. 24, 2010

Yup, two caps. Ness is behind the ghost, his backpack is being worn by the guy at the bottom by the Mr. Saturn, and Buzz Buzz is on the uppermost palm tree.

Thanks for linking to PK Bloggin’! :)

On a more relevant note, that Giant Mr. Saturn looks awesome in the office, and is almost making me consider spending the money for one. Almost.

Why is the picture called flyinghippo-1?

Vinny said on Jan. 24, 2010

I always ask this but never get an answer: what does Itoi do, exactly? I know he makes a game occasionally, but other than that?

Darn you Pigmask Private :| I thought I could name them all first. I’m a bit late…

Darien said on Jan. 24, 2010

Itoi’s main gig is writing copy, but he’s pretty much a renaissance man, and does a lot of other things in addition. He makes video games, writes books and essays, records voiceovers, and so forth.

Mother 4 said on Jan. 24, 2010

More Mr. Saturns means more Mother, perhaps Mother 4?

Axl-fox said on Jan. 24, 2010

@Mother 4: I highly doubt it

That type of thinking will set you up for major disappointment.

That M3 Deluxe Box deal doesn’t seem so great, it looks like it’s just the GBM.
It says “Game Body = A”, but I’m guessing they meant “Game Boy = A”, since later it says the game is not “incould”.

^True, buyer beware. I lol’d at “Flanklin Badge” though

XaG3rat3D said on Jan. 26, 2010

:O Is Itoi planning on going to the olympics? If so I will meet him, oh yes, I will meet him..

missy said on Jan. 28, 2010

the Mr. Saturns are making my suspicious

but it’s probably nothing.

These Wheres Ness things are fun and addicting!
