Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai published a new column in this week’s issue of Famitsu. The series recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, so Sakurai had a few words to share such as how it wasn’t always a sure thing that the franchise would continue. He gets pretty reflective here as well as later in the piece when he starts thinking about what lies ahead for his future as a developer. Outside of that, we also get to see a bit of talk about Piranha Plant in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

We’ve prepared a full translation of Sakurai’s column. Continue on below to read it in full.

Nintendo Directs have been on a bit of a hiatus, but are finally back in a big way. A new presentation will be kicking off in an hour from now – 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET / 10 PM in the UK / 11 PM in Europe. It’ll last about 35 minutes.

Nintendo has confirmed that Fire Emblem: Three Houses will have a presence here. Beyond that, things are a bit of a mystery. We’ll all find out what Nintendo has in store for us very soon, and you can watch the event as it happens below. Devin will also be taking care of our live blog right in this post, though posts about important announcements will be added to the site as well (and after the show is over).

Hello, my beautiful goombas!

This week on NEP, Oni and Galen wade through the concept of Xbox Live on Nintendo Switch, discuss the weekly news, and banter over all the talking points that Nintendo gave us from their Financial Q&A.

Plus, Oni talks the importance of women in the (Nintendo) workplace in regards to Japanese society and Galen tells us all about what game he needs to see revived in his lifetime.

A big thank you to all of our listeners and to those who share the podcast— our show is growing at a very healthy rate! We hope you’re enjoying listening! Please leave us your feedback, and check below for more details and timestamps.

Looking for new reviewers

You know what we haven’t done in a long time? Add some new reviewers to the team. The last time we did this was three years ago! With all of the Switch games coming out these days (don’t sleep on those eShop-only titles), we really need to fix that.

I don’t want to put a number on it, but we’re probably looking to bring in a couple of new reviewers. If you’re at least 18 years old, are interested in possibly reviewing games for Nintendo Everything, and would like to learn more, shoot us an email by visiting our contact form. Choose the “Site Position” option and please tell us your age as well as which part of the world you’re located in. Please note that this is an unpaid position. We’ll follow up as soon as possible with each person.

Thanks all!

In a recent issue of Famitsu, a lengthy interview with published with Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes director Suda51. There was some interesting discussion about the game’s creation, ambitious plans for Golden Dragon GP that were ultimately scrapped, and a bit of talk about the series’ future.

We’ve now prepared a full translation of the interview. Read the talk with Suda51 in its entirety below. 

Update: The winner of our giveaway is… Mike Ivans! Congratulations and thanks to all who entered.


The fine folks at Super Rare Games have given us an opportunity to supply one lucky fan with the company’s latest release, Knights of Pen and Paper Double Pack. You’re getting a pair of games here that were previously exclusive to the eShop, but are now receiving the physical treatment.

What up, kids and squids?!

This week on NEP, Oni and Galen get super informative! Have you missed any of the big news and little details in between over the past few days? Do you want to hear our tacky interpretations? Then you’ll want to check this episode out.

Nintendo has big plans moving forward, and there’s a lot we don’t know about yet! In addition to the jam-packed news, Galen reveals how little he knows about using My Nintendo, Oni loses his mind and memories, and the gang laughs together along the way.

We hope you’re enjoying listening! Please leave us your feedback, and do check below for more details and timestamps. Thanks for listening!

A new month rolled right on in yesterday. Now that we’re in February, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Trying out the Switch port of New Super Mario Bros. U? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

Last week’s issue of Famitsu had a different type of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate interview. While we’re typically used to hearing from director Masahiro Sakurai, the magazine caught up with two people heavily involved with the music side of things. Hideki Sakamoto (who wrote the main theme song) and Erina Koga (who sung the main theme in Japanese) chatted with Famitsu. There was talk about the creation of the music, what the recording session was like, and more. 

You can read our full translation of the interview below. We do also have a brief comment from Sakurai as well who commented on his approach to the main theme this time around.

After a week off, Masahiro Sakurai published his latest column in Famitsu this week. His piece was again dedicated entirely to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and this one was particularly interesting.

Sakurai managed to receive permission from Nintendo in sharing some data about online play in Smash Bros. Ultimate. His column was only in reference to a specific week, but he went over victory rates, character usage, and more.
