Atlus graced fans with some long overdue news this week. Shin Megami Tensei V, which was announced back in January 2017, will finally release next year. We still don’t have an exact date, but fans can rest easy knowing that they’ll finally be able to play the RPG in 2021.

That wasn’t the only news from Atlus. Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster is on the way, which is something entirely new. Japan is getting it first in October, but western fans unfortunately need to wait until Spring 2021.

With a pair of Shin Megami Tensei games on the way to Switch in the future, let’s talk about the series in general. How many of the titles have you played? How do you feel about Shin Megami Tensei overall? Let us know in the comments below.

Our video series is back with a new video discussing some predictions for a Nintendo Direct that has been rumored to drop soon. We give our honest thoughts as to whether the presentation is really coming and make some guesses about a possible Mario focus.

The first Fairy Tail game for home consoles is finally nearing release. Following previous delays, the RPG will land on Switch and other platforms on July 31.

While we’ve spoken to Gust about the project previously, as the game is just around the corner, we’ve caught up the team for a final time. During our discussion, the developer spoke about the delay, improvements that were made while in development, different quality of life features that will be included, the Switch version, and more.

Our full discussion with Gust can be read below.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, it’s Super Mario’s uneventful 35th birthday. But Paper Mario is out, and Oni Dino has first impressions. Galen loves his shlooters, so there’s a brief talk about that and the inability to “preserve” the experience. In the news, we’ve got lots of small topics. The big one worth celebrating is Swery’s (Deadly Premonition 2) apology and excellent response to dead-naming a transgender character in his game. Oni Dino applauds his caring response. Then, there’s not one, but two video games being adapted into television series, Atelier Ryza 2 got outed by the Australian ratings board, and a brief discussion on why the lack of local co-op in Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered is not a deal-breaker. Hop on the caravan, and check out links and timestamps below.

Developer: Nippon Ichi Software
Publisher: NIS America


void tRrLM(); //Void Terrarium can feel as overwhelming as its full name. It is a touching narrative of hope and perseverance, about the power of human connections amid uncertainty. Yet at the same time, it is a blisteringly difficult and infuriatingly random roguelike, one that revels in placing insurmountable roadblocks in front of you at every step throughout its procedurally generated labyrinths. It is an inherently divisive game that is bound to hit home for some players, while alienating many others. Void Terrarium offers a beautiful and emotional experience for those who see its journey through to its conclusion, but getting there is a question of how much you’re willing to endure.

For a lot of its games, Nintendo has a short turnaround between announcement and release. Paper Mario: The Origami King really took that trend to the next level. The game was only just revealed two months ago, yet it’s already out.

Though it’s only been a day since the game came out, we imagine that many of you are already playing Paper Mario: The Origami King. Based on what you’ve experienced, how do you feel about it so far? What do you think about the gameplay, story, characters, or other aspects? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
