Hello my beautiful Black Eagles, Blue Lions and Golden Deer! In this episode of NEP, we put on the boxing gloves and discuss microtransactions in gaming, why Fire Emblem: Three Houses is so damn good, and the wild mechanics with Dragon Quest Hero as he debuts in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. We also have a chat about the new additions to Nintendo Switch Online and if they save the service or not, Ubisoft’s Chinese Rabbids game and the meager announcements from Nintendo and Tencent at ChinaJoy. Finally in our Listener Mail segment, we recommend JRPGs and give our brutally honest feelings about the Final Fantasy series and Kingdom Hearts series.

We hope you enjoy!

If you’ve played some of Team Ninja’s previous games such as Ninja Gaiden, you know how difficult they can be. Apparently that toughness rubbed off on the team when Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order was in development. According to producer Yosuke Hayashi, Marvel Games told Team Ninja that the Switch game was too difficult, which led to adjustments being implemented.

Hayashi told IGN:

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order has received a new update, bringing the game up to Version 1.0.2.

According to the patch notes, this only corrects an issue when it came to players selecting characters more than once. The note can be viewed below.

Hello my lovely left and right Joy-con! Are you stable or are you drifting? In this NEP, we talk logical about the hardware problems that are on the tip of everyone’s tongues to kick things off. We then hit you with fast paced news and some unintentionally analytical chats about games reviews and journalism. Then we cover Pokemon Masters, but we’re both kinda burnt out on Pokemon mobile efforts… But we have plenty of energy as we chew through all our lovely listener mails and tell the abridged story of when Oni met Galen. We hope you enjoy!

The best way to support our show is to give us a 5 star review on iTunes, so we would appreciate if you could help us grow! We really appreciate all your support and thank you so much for listening!

Marvel writer Marc Sumerak lent his talents to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Rather than piggybacking off of the previous two entries, this game starts from scratch, and Sumerak had to figure out how to bring the huge roster together in a cohesive way.

Nintendo published a new interview this week that examines the story in greater detail. Sumerak discussed how he went about writing for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, the challenges involved, and more.

Here’s the full discussion:

My Nintendo is celebrating the launches of Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order with new rewards. Along with printable boxart covers, there are also a pair of wallpapers. Everything is priced at 50 Platinum Points each.
