The ‘Shop Contest is back, and the first one in a few months is now complete. Unfortunately, the results have shattered my confidence in Super Mario Odyssey unless it gets some standalone DLC devoted to just how weird Mario and Cappy can get.

But congrats to this week’s winner: Pleasance13. Maybe if Mario finally possessed the developers over at Square we could get Kingdom Hearts III to come out in my lifetime? Some entries are really funny. Others are very well executed. This one just looked flat out real. Are you listening Tetsuya Nomura? The people have spoken and they want a three-way crossover.

I mean, after all, Cloud is in Kingdom Hearts and Smash Bros. Wii U. That makes Mario and Sora practically brothers. Anyway, there were a few honorable mentions this week as well.

And finally Also_Ran is anything but an also-ran with this (very literal) interpretation of the contest’s name.


And here’s to a wonderful effort by everyone else (how could I let the ‘Shop Contest go on such a long hiatus again after all these rad entries?)
