[Nintendo Everything Podcast] – episode #40 – DQ Hero’s Thwack attack and FOMO in your Shlooters
Hello my beautiful Black Eagles, Blue Lions and Golden Deer! In this episode of NEP, we put on the boxing gloves and discuss microtransactions in gaming, why Fire Emblem: Three Houses is so damn good, and the wild mechanics with Dragon Quest Hero as he debuts in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. We also have a chat about the new additions to Nintendo Switch Online and if they save the service or not, Ubisoft’s Chinese Rabbids game and the meager announcements from Nintendo and Tencent at ChinaJoy. Finally in our Listener Mail segment, we recommend JRPGs and give our brutally honest feelings about the Final Fantasy series and Kingdom Hearts series.
We hope you enjoy!

Galen has an idea for an incredible peripheral for new gaming experiences using old games on the Switch… it’s so crazy, Nintendo would totally do it.
