People in Japan can indulge in the Snow Miku and Rabbit Yukine, available in Family Mart convenience stores. Made of lactobacilli bacteria it's supposedly said to be "mellow" with a "hint of acidity." Please leave comments if you have actually drank this.

This years Halloween has been a unique one, one I didn't dress up at but had lots of fun coutesy of Nintendo. Nintendo send emails out to people to register for free tickets to their Nintendo event at Bethnal Green

The event located in a large club venue housed up to a few hundred of people watching the Smash tournament on a large boxing ring. To add to the effect their was smoke and challengers came in wearing boxing robes and gloves. There were also casual fights on stage with randomly selected attendees to win t-shirts and other prizes.

If you wanted to get hands on yourself there were playable consoles at the back with Smash on Wii U and 3DS aswell as showcasing the new Sonic Boom. Sonic Boom was a great game where you have little chance to dying, you simple move around the constantly running hedgehog and grapple at certain points. Staff were around to help people if needed or you could bogey with the happy mascots including - Donkey Kong, Mario, Luigi and Pikachu. 

The evnt span from 11a-8pm and included free hot dogs, drinks and sweets to keep the gamers energy levels up. More photos here.
