Grandia HD Collection

Hello, my beautiful bubbles and bobbles. This week on NEP, we’re gushing about Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Oni tries (and fails) to not talk about FE3H the entire episode, while Galen picks arbitrary battles as he defends Cooking Mama. Oni also gives some first impressions with the Grandia HD Collection, and the gang discusses all the game announcements and details we got this week! Could a Nintendo Direct be coming next month?
We finish things off by chatting about games with sequels where one was exponentially better than the other. Both Galen and Oni dive into their pasts to pull up some sore memories of their favorite games…

If you’re enjoying NEP, please consider giving us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, aka new iTunes. It’s incredibly helpful in getting us exposed to new listeners through the algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

To celebrate today’s release, Grandia HD Collection has received a brand new launch trailer. Get a look at the video below.

Starting tomorrow, Grandia HD Collection will finally be available on Switch. Get a look at some footage in the video below.

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.

At E3 2019, GungHo Online Entertainment kindly invited us to their private conference room for a gameplay demo and presentation for Grandia HD Collection coming to Switch. With the game coming out in a few days, we’ve rounded up all the important details and new information below that producer Takeshi Minagawa was able to share with us.

Here’s the full rundown:

GungHo Online Entertainment has confirmed to Nintendo Everything that it worked with an external partner on Grandia HD Collection. Sickhead Games, a company that previously ported Stardew Valley to Switch, is involved with the project.

GungHo told us that Sickhead has been extremely careful with source material. The team used the SEGA Saturn release and new version side-by-side to give great care when making it.

GungHo Online Entertainment has finally set a release date for Grandia HD Collection. It’ll be out via the eShop on August 16, the company announced today.

Here’s what fans can expect from the collection:

At E3 2019, we had a chance to go hands-on with Grandia HD Collection on Switch. Take a look at some footage from the beta build that was on display below.

Hello my beautiful Sobbles, Grookeys and Scorbunnies! More bonus time on NEP with another double length episode! E3 got us lit up, so we talk about the recent game leaks and announcements all over the place. Particularly, we dive real deep on the Pokemon Sword and Shield details we got from the Direct. The tea is particularly good this week.

Following that, we have a fun chat about E3 wishlists, both realistic and idealistic, and then answer some awesome listener mail we got this week. You all really pulled through on this one!

To celebrate E3, we’re doing double content all month long… probably! We hope you’re enjoying! The best way to support our show is to recommend the podcast to others, and rate us 5 stars on iTunes!

Thank you so much for listening!
