Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy

Hello my Chocobos and Moogles! Welcome to the Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy! Spoilercast.

Oni recounts his experiences with the characters and story of Chocobo’s Dungeon, and he can’t handle the tonal dissonance between doom and adorable that this game has in spades. Oni and Galen discuss the game, the series as a whole, JRPGs in general, and other games that weave cute and gloom together.

Hello, Team Hare and Team Tortoise! This week on NEP, Galen kicks the show off with his EXCELLENT Banjo (Banjo-Kazooie) impression. That sets the mood for the laughing/crying fit we have right after as we joke about how depressing Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon gets in the late game, including some high-level Final Fantasy lore jokes. We then take a deep dive into Smash 3.0 where Galen gives some thorough impressions and we discuss all of the custom stages Nintendo’s cracking down on; Galen tells his horror story. Afterward, we have some chill Marvel talk because we just got a street date for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3! Then we get serious as we talk rumors from Nikkei about a Switch Mini releasing this autumn, and Oni talks the importance of accurate translations so as not to spread misinformation. And we tidy things up by discussing the growing likelihood of Switch releasing in mainland China, who Tencent is, and international business culture.

We hope you enjoy this episode, because we had a ton of fun recording it! We would appreciate your help in growing the show by sharing the podcast with a friend!
