[Nintendo Everything Podcast] – episode #72 – Animal Crossing impatience, indies, LGBTQ+ representation in games
Hello my independent gamers! This week on NEP, it’s Animal Crossing time! First impressions on New Horizon, followed by demo talk on Trials of Mana and how Square Enix is remaking two great JRPGs very, very differently. Then we celebrate Nindies in the Indie World Presentation, and close out the show by discussing if there’s any good LGBTQ+ representation in video games. Spoiler alert: there’s very little of it.
