2013 NEW YEAR’S CARDS FROM AROUND THE JAPANESE GAMING INDUSTRY

Happy New Year aaaaaand welcome to the latest installment of our annual “nengajou” round-up from around the Japanese gaming industry! (See also: 2012 and 2011)

What you say?! No idea what a nengajou is? Click here and all will be illuminated. (Short answer: Japanese version of a Christmas card, themed around the new year’s Chinese zodiac animal. This year: The Snake. …Snake?! SNAAAAAAKE!!!)

Super-special thanks to super-talented artisté Kelly Smith and her super-cool co-workers at Capy Games for the super-awesome custom-built Super TIME Force-flavored image. (Look closely and you might even spot a member or five of your favorite podcast ever lurking someplace in the background…)

The only question is, who has the second-best card this year? Let us know your faves in the comments, and/or click on the name beneath each card to tweet them directly!
