Stiq Figures, September 23 - 29: It's my birthday edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter.

Great Sea explorers just experienced an extra birthday when they started their fresh files in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, but it's my actual birthday today, so I think that means I get double presents?

I was the kid that had gaming-themed parties for as long as my family allowed me to. Pokemon banners, Pikachu cakes, Yoshis as presents ... a total stranger could have predicted where I'd end up professionally, really. The themed cakes and parties have been replaced with presentable dinners and spirits because I guess I should grow up, but I'll always appreciate my family letting my gaming-themed decoration requests overrun their houses once a year. I also had a homemade Pikachu outfit for a few Halloweens, because my mother's sewing abilities seemingly know no bounds.

Were you able to talk your way into any gaming birthday parties as a kid, or have you bucked society's expectations in favor of carrying them out to this day? Maybe you have little ones of your own to pass the gaming-themed celebratory torch to now? Let us know how you celebrate once you check the hardware sales data for Japan after the jump!
