Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore

Hello, my deserted villagers! This week on NEP, we’re covering the big Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Direct. Oni Dino is reminded of Fyre Fest, while Galen can’t wait to share his place and play online with friends. We also introduce Snack World in our Adventure Log, followed by an impromptu talk about why misrepresentation of marginalized groups in video games is harmful. We ebb and flow between the serious and the absurd on NEP! Plus, we talk about an upcoming, killer JRPG that’s kind of going under the radar: Trials of Mana. Come hang out.

Hello, my wonderful superheroes! This week on NEP, we’ve got exclusives on The Wonderful 101: Remastered coming to Switch, PS4 and Steam via Kickstarter. Oni Dino talks about his meetings with Platinum last year, leak culture and butts in Platinum Games (of course). Galen is still holding out for Wonder Red in Smash Bros. Galen also tells more about Dragon’s Crown Pro experiences, and Oni Dino highlights some of the more bespoke writing in Tokyo Mirage Sessions. And the topic of games-as-a-service rears its head in our listener segment.

Hello, my beautiful animal buddies! This week on NEP, we’ve got a lot of games under our belt: Tokyo Mirage Sessions, Dragon’s Crown Pro, and Byleth impressions from Smash. Then, we fawn over how gorgeous this new Animal Crossing: New Horizons limited edition Switch is. And the big news about Switch outselling the SNES in under 3 years. Has Switch really been this successful? It’s surreal. Also surreal is the details finally releasing on Pokemon HOME. It’s a mixed bag, and most reaction has been less than great. And some more details on Super Nintendo World opening in Universal Studios Japan in Osaka this summer.
