Hello, my beautiful bubbles and bobbles. This week on NEP, we’re gushing about Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Oni tries (and fails) to not talk about FE3H the entire episode, while Galen picks arbitrary battles as he defends Cooking Mama. Oni also gives some first impressions with the Grandia HD Collection, and the gang discusses all the game announcements and details we got this week! Could a Nintendo Direct be coming next month?
We finish things off by chatting about games with sequels where one was exponentially better than the other. Both Galen and Oni dive into their pasts to pull up some sore memories of their favorite games…

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 the algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

EA says it is “absolutely looking at more Switch games in our portfolio”. That’s according to chief studios officer Laura Miele, who spoke about plans for the system in the latest issue of Game Informer.

When asked about Switch and whether the company is reconsidering its investment there, Miele said:

Contra Anniversary Collection landed on the Switch eShop not too long ago. In addition, Konami revealed at E3 that the company is making an entirely new game in the franchise known as Contra Rogue Corps. After the announcement was made, Famitsu spoke with producer Nobuya Nakazato about why the team went with an overhead camera angle, the game’s characters, and the new characters.

We’ve prepared a translation of Famitsu’s short interview. Continue on below to read it in full.

Things were a bit slow for Switch in the first half of 2019, but the second half is picking up in a big way. From Nintendo alone, the company released Super Mario Maker 2 in June, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 and Fire Emblem: Three Houses last month, and has Astral Chain arriving in a couple of weeks. The rest of the year looks packed, including a big September. Daemon X Machina, Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and Dragon Quest XI S are launching over three consecutive weeks. We’re not even mentioning third-party releases, which includes the likes of Spyro Reignited Trilogy.

Since September has so many heavy hitters for Switch, we want to know about which game (or games) you’re looking forward to the most. How many will you be purchasing? Are you planning on picking up Nintendo’s trio of published titles? Let us know in the comments below.
