Now that the SEGA Ages Switch series has come to an end, Famitsu recently held an interview looking back with key members of staff. During the discussion, the developers were asked about the popularity of the games in Japan and overseas. Everyone seemed to have different answers, but they referenced some data to back their thoughts up, too.

Included in the interview are Rieko Kodama (producer/director), Yosuke Okunari (supervisor), and Tsuyoshi Matsuoka (M2 director).

Check out our translation of the excerpt below.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’re back to talk about No More Heroes and Part Time UFO. Galen also critiques the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Halloween event and has thoughts on upcoming seasonal events, too. Oni Dino beat Trials of Mana, and it’s a mixed bag. And to mark the release of the PS5 and Xbox SX, we consider the routes Nintendo could go down in the second half of the Switch’s life. Pro version? Full handheld? A new console entirely?

We also have a podcast discord for listeners to chill, chat, and make friends. Check out links and timestamps below and come hang out.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’ve got so much to say about the excellent Nintendo Direct, No More Heroes, Cloud gaming on the Switch, Bravely Default II, the Hyrule Warriors demo, and more. This Direct was basically made for Oni Dino. Galen has some theories on Nintendo’s new plans for mid-generation reform with Cloud gaming. Also, that Hyrule Warriors gameplay is surprisingly complex; come for our early impressions. Later on, we answer some listener mail where we talk about video games inspiring or impacting us as an art form.

In his 651st column for Famitsu, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai discussed the new DLC for Minecraft’s Steve. Sakurai apparently had several challenges with implementing the fighter – despite the popularity of the character, he did not want Steve to be a watered-down addition to the roster. Though he kept it vague, Sakurai also stated the music for Minecraft gave the team quite the headache.

Check below for the column’s full translation by Nintendo Everything’s Oni Dino.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’re gonna party like it’s 1990 because Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light is getting an English release. Galen then tells us how much of a creativity vacuum he is in character creation with Baldur’s Gate 3. We also explore: is early access good for consumers? Later, Oni Dino is not down for Prinny 2 at bedtime but is down for picross. There’s also lots of news bits to talk about, culminating in Fire Emblem. But what’s the deal with the limited availability? Another game to the pile. Is March 31st significant?

The Atelier series doesn’t typically see direct sequels, but that’s exactly the direction Koei Tecmo and Gust decided to take with Atelier Ryza 2. Following the first game’s massive success, the sequel arrives this December in Japan and late January 2021 in the west.

Nintendo Everything recently had the opportunity to speak with Gust brand manager and Atelier Ryza series producer Junzo Hosoi. We chatted about what’s new with the battle system, the game’s characters (including their designs), and more. Also, for more general topics, Hosoi talked about Switch, addressed the possibility of Atelier remakes, and shared a few thoughts about the franchise’s future.

Our discussion can be read in full below.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, Galen can’t play Minecraft Steve while Oni Dino appreciates mediocre JRPGs. Galen also shares his thoughts on the Baldur’s Gate 3 early access stuff going on. Good-Feel is teasing a new game for Switch with a Japanese aesthetic, and we discuss if Metroid Prime Trilogy HD is ever gonna happen. Speaking of, will another F-Zero ever happen? Oni Dino has some ideas for a himbo Captain Falcon in a No More Heroes-like game where fighting is replaced with racing.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast 100, both Oni Dino and Galen are exhausted and a little loopy… But there are some great games to talk about. Oni Dino’s been playing Prinny, Can I Really Be the Hero? While Galen’s hopping on the trends with Among Us. There were plenty of new details for games we’re excited about in the news, then we cap things off with a discussion of bad licensed games that we loved anyway.

To celebrate 100 episodes, we’ve opened up a podcast discord for listeners to chill, chat, and make friends. Check out links and timestamps below and come hang out.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, Minecraft Kirby blesses us with his presence. Galen goes for treats in Animal Crossing: New Horizon’s Halloween update, while Oni Dino joins the briny depths of The Sinking City. The news is quite hearty this week with Super Mario Bros 35, Mario Kart Home Circuit details, Live A Live revival teases, Pokemon DLC, and the big one: Minecraft Steve in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. We’re fans of his moveset despite not feeling one way or the other about his character. Regardless, Minecraft Kirby is here.
