[Nintendo Everything Podcast] – episode #41 – Never Give Up treads lightly on your spirits (feat. Massive Monster)
Posted on August 11, 2019 by Oni Dino(@Oni_Dino) in Interviews, Podcast
Hello, my beautiful poison and fairy types. This week on NEP, we have a special guest—three in fact! Jay, James and Julian from Massive Monster join us to talk about their upcoming challenging action-platformer for Nintendo Switch, “Never Give Up”. The devs reveal a lot about their upcoming game including a few secrets, how Egoraptor / Arin Hanson is involved, and their origins as developers that led up to this point.
The trio then sticks around to chat with us about new Pokemon details and lootboxes in gaming, with Nintendo making a statement recently about introducing new rules for transparency. We all get on and have a great chat, and we’re particularly grateful for Massive Monster’s insight on these topics as developers.
