It’s time for the latest Famitsu’s most wanted games chart! Final Fantasy XV, Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, Persona 5, Bravely Second, and Final Fantasy Explorers are the new top five.
Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between November 6 and November 12.
All the way back in July, Nintendo Everything’s weekly podcast “Here’s a Podcast” ended abruptly with a strange-yet-totally-normal episode about, among other things, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. In a few weeks, all three podcast crew-members are going to be back together in the same city, and they all felt like it would be appropriate to record another episode as a parting gift to you all until further notice. Now, I smashed my finger under a couch earlier so it hurts to type, which means I am going to make this brief:
If you were a fan of the podcast, we’d love if you would do us a solid and send us some listener questions mail to [email protected]. We’ll need some for the show, after all! You can include parting words if you like– maybe some favorite moments from the 102 episodes prior– or just a regular old question; the future of the podcast looks at least semi-hopeful, but just in case… you may want to consider these your last emails ever!
I’d expect the podcast to be put up either the weekend of December 6th or December 13th.
Update: Now over, but you can find the full replay below.
Have Super Smash Bros. for Wii U or Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire? Then join us for the latest Discussing Everything, where we’ll talk about both of those releases! We’ll be sneaking in some news as well such as the new Hyrule Warriors DLC.
Note that you can log in with Facebook/Twitter, but these are optional. You can choose a random username as well!

Thanks to Jake for the tip.
Nintendo previously confirmed that the second wave of amiibo are releasing in December. However, the company still has not provided a final date.
That’s where Amazon and Walmart come in. Both retailers are listing December 14 release dates for the second round of amiibo like Luigi and Zelda.
Plus, there’s also this tweet from Walmart:
I’d say December 14 is looking likely at the moment!
Thanks to Kevin for the tip.
The 3DS features functionality that allows users to join online sessions of their friends. By heading to the Friend List, you simply tap “Join Friend’s Game” to connect.
With the release of Super Smash Bros., the Wii U now has similar functionality. You can join a friend’s session by touching the “Available to play!” area of the Friend List. It should come in handy!
I know a few folks had some doubts as to whether the defective Samus amiibo we posted yesterday was real or not. The figure’s owner has now posted additional images, which does seem to ultimately confirm that the story wasn’t fabricated.
Here are the latest photos:
