Luigi’s Mansion 3

Hello my happy helpers and fortune cookies! This week on NEP, Oni Dino and Galen are talking The Game Awards, the industry and mobile monetization schemes. We chat about the nominees, snubs, predictions for Nintendo and past instances—new Smash DLC fighter? Metroid? Bayonetta? Who knows! Let’s keep it logical, though.
Then we tackle Animal Crossing Pocket Camp getting a subscription service with a very opinionated argument over if free-to-play games like these should even be considered games. We finish things off with some Pokemon talk on the new designs, and the Gizmodo situation in our listener mail segment.

Hello my poison and fairy types! This week on NEP, Oni Dino is a bit unhinged but we make it work! Galen chats Terry Bogard and Luigi’s Mansion impressions while Oni Dino continues grinding the gears in Destiny Connect. We then discuss the Phanpy in the room and give our opinions on the Pokemon Sword / Shield controversy and how people are handling things on social media. And who can forget the big star of turning around 2019: Sonic the hedgehog.

Nintendo has uploaded yet another “My Way” commercial for Switch featuring Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Luigi’s Mansion 3. Watch the advert below.

Last week, Luigi’s Mansion 3 launched on Switch. Digital Foundry has now published a new video examining the game from a technical perspective.

Here are the main points:

Luigi’s Mansion 3 was already said to have had the fastest-selling physical Switch game of 2019 in the UK. GamesIndustry now reports that its sales are 140 percent higher than its predecessor, without including digital sales.

Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King also launched last week. It came in at #12 and sold the best on Switch. 48 percent of sales were on Nintendo’s platform, followed by PS4 at 38 percent and Xbox One at 14 percent.

As one other note, Ring Fit Adventure continues to do well. Sales dropped just 21 percent and the title remained in the top ten at #7.

Early data from the past week of sales reveals that Luigi’s Mansion 3 has become the fastest-selling Nintendo game in the UK of 2019 thus far. It beat out The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening to earn that achievement.

While Luigi’s Mansion 3 had a strong debut, it wasn’t the top-selling game in the UK last week. That honor went to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

We should have more news from the latest UK sales charts soon.

Hello, my Fatal Cuties! This week on NEP, we got hit with some Pokemon leaks while recording, but we keep our reactions spoiler-free. We chat some great games we’ve been playing with Atelier Ryza, Luigi’s Mansion and more, then we muse on 3DS games we’d like to see make the jump to Switch. Somehow, we end up arguing with each other over Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask. How. How even did that happen. Come have a chill game time with us.
