The Stretchers

Hello, my Norman Reeduses and Freaky Fetuses! This week on NEP, we celebrate Terry Bogard’s debut in Smash with lots of creativity flowing; we muse on ideas for licensed anime games like Food Wars Shokugeki no Soma, Trigun, Sailor Moon… We also kick the show off with some chat about general media—I promise there’s structure to this show. Galen talks his captivation with Luigi’s Mansion 3, Oni Dino is charmed by Destiny Connect, and general banter continues. “C’mon!”

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!

This week, the podcast is sponsored by Koei Tecmo. Check out Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, out now on Nintendo Switch.

The Stretchers is officially available worldwide. Following the Japanese and European release, the Tarsier Studios-made co-op puzzle game can be found on the North American eShop.

Here’s the full announcement:

Nintendo just announced and released a new downloadable Switch game out of nowhere. We first heard about the comedic co-op game The Stretchers last night, and it has already launched in Europe and Japan – North America is likely to follow very soon.

As it turns out, Nintendo is only publishing The Stretchers. It’s actually Tarsier Studios behind the project. Tarsier definitely has a strong pedigree, as the company previously created Little Nightmares.
