This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, it’s a celebration of China with Pokemon Unite and Min Min in Smash. It’s a news-focused episode with game announcements, debuts, updates, and a controversy. Suda51’s pixelated face mimics Andross in the No More Heroes 3 gameplay teaser, but we’re not deterred. We’re also just as unsure as Suda if it’ll release this year. We also celebrate the consumer-positive Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered’s lite version. Have any other games done something this generous before?
