[Nintendo Everything Podcast] – episode #48 – Why Nintendo Didn’t Bail AlphaDream Out of Bankruptcy, Pokemon Gym Drama
Hello, my major and minor league gym leaders! This week on NEP, we’re going over all the new Pokemon details—including the controversies… We also break down the AlphaDream bankruptcy story, and Oni Dino has dug through some Japanese language reports and is bringing that straight to your ears. We also muse on our ideas for Nintendo skins for Overwatch characters, thanks to some lovely listener mail.

- 07:40 – Adventure Log: Super Kirby Clash, Borderlands 3, Untitled Goose Game
- 36:06 – Pokemon Sword Shield news, changes, updates, controversy… Can this game ever escape it? Game Informer releases info but then Pokemon Company backtracks on it. 18 gyms? 16? Only 8? Masuda also teases new systems for Sword Shield that they haven’t revealed yet. Helps to remove tedium? And Zamazenta and Zacian names finally make sense, but Galen and Oni Dino are still not impressed. They sound like Kingdom Hearts villains.
- 1:05:03 – Big story: Mario & Luigi RPG series developers, AlphaDream, have filed for bankruptcy. What does this mean? Why didn’t Nintendo bail them out? We talk fan reactions, misconceptions and the business side of things. And of course we bowtie the discussion with a reminder of Oni Dino’s idea for a brand new Mario RPG series with a job system. It’s such a good idea!
- 1:19:28 – Additional DLC
- 1:24:12 – Listener mail: Nintendo skins in Overwatch! Who should be whom?
Send us an email and we’ll discuss it!
