Hello my 8-bit and 16-bit beauties. This week on NEP, we accidentally pitch our ideas for the next Luigi’s Mansion game (and the next) in a fervor of excitement. Then, Oni Dino is excited about Heroland while Galen critiques Bioware’s Anthem. Oni Dino goes on to talk his love for Breath of Fire II and Galen muses on the “Zelda II Maker” update we received in Super Mario Maker 2, and what Maker could be next. We then read some listener mail leading into next week’s The Game Awards, a New Year Nintendo Direct and Super Mario Sunshine… 2?

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 algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

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!
