SNES

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!

If you were hoping to pick up one of those SNES controllers for Switch, you might be out of luck. It’s no longer available in either North America or Europe. On Nintendo’s North American site, it’s simply noted that the SNES controller is unavailable, and fans are advised to “check back for more news in January 2020.”

The controller was only sold to Nintendo Switch Online members. It is intended to be used with the SNES games that debuted back in September.

Hello, my angry suns! In this episode of NEP, we’ve got two special guests joining Oni and Galen: Tim and Tyler from Something Classic Games with the occasional woof from Tyler’s dog, Jackson. Something Classic recently debuted their stylish, modern take on SNES-era JRPGs, “Shadows of Adam”, on Nintendo Switch!

Join the four of us as we talk all about our reactions to the Super Mario Maker 2 direct and what we think of the unannounced new game style(s), too! We start things off with a casual interview of sorts where Tim and Tyler fill us in on their history in the games and music industries, tales of development, inspiring stories, RPG Maker back in the day, the roots of Shadows of Adam, and what transformations took place over the years. We also end up just chatting about general gaming habits, Pokemon GO, houses full of musicians, cats and dogs, memes…

If you’re a fan of classic SNES JRPGs, you don’t want to miss out on this episode and you definitely don’t want to miss out on Shadows of Adam. So, come have a chill time with us and get to know two of the devs from Something Classic Games.

As ever, we would appreciate your help in growing the show by sharing the podcast with a friend and rating us on your listening platform of choice, such as iTunes!
Thanks for listening!
