This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, Galen’s back and he gives us nothing. Meanwhile, Oni Dino can hardly contain his excitement for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. We analyze the trailer a bit for sneak peeks and have some fun wondering what the game could be like, based on our experiences with Hyrule Warriors and Breath of the Wild. Addition, we feign our surprise at No More Heroes 3’s delay, we aren’t talking about Ubisoft, Galen’s creative spark is awoken by RPG Maker, Oni Dino boomerangs on Manifold Garden, Gleamlight is dim, and more.

The latest Nintendo leak isn’t only just about cancelled Game Boy and Game Boy Color games. Among the latest discoveries are a couple of interesting images for Wii Sports spotted by forestillusion and dconn537.

First up is a prototype image that shows Miis with ears, which is actually something we’ve never seen before. You’ve been able to customize features like the eyes, nose, hair, and even mouth shapes, but ears were never a part of the avatar’s design.

Zoids Wild: King of Blast, the first Zoids game to appear on Switch, made it to Japan last February. More than a year later, it’s finally heading west. Outright Games partnered with Takara Tomy to release the title in North America and Europe.

Ahead of the upcoming overseas launch, Nintendo Everything was able to speak with producer manager Esteban Belmonte and Outright Games US CEO Kathy Bucklin about Zoids Wild: Blast Unleashed. We learned more about what it’s been like getting it ready for the western launch, asked about the possibility of localizing the recently-announced Zoids Wild: Infinity Blast, and more.

Here’s our full discussion:

Were you left unsatisfied with this year’s Pokemon leaks? Or how about all of the ones involving the N64? Perhaps the latest leak will tickle your fancy, which involves the Game Boy and Game Boy Color.

The latest treasure trove of leaks stem from a “lotcheck” dump of Game Boy and Game Boy Color games from way back in the day. Titles submitted in this state were submitted to Nintendo for review.

What’s included in today’s findings involve a bunch of cancelled games like Pokemon Picross, which was promoted in Japanese gaming magazines in 1999, but never actually made it to market. Then there’s Gimmick Land, coming from Mario & Luigi developer AlphaDream. On top of that, we have a look at ports of Famicom / Super Famicom games, English localizations that never officially released outside of Japan, and even a Hello Kitty game that apparently would have supported the Game Boy Printer.

Here’s a roundup of notable findings:

We have some of the first footage from Ubisoft’s upcoming action adventure title Immortals Fenyx Rising, which was previously known as Gods & Monsters. View 30 minutes of gameplay in the video below.

Immortals Fenyx Rising launches for Switch on December 3.

When Gods & Monsters was initially revealed in 2019 at Ubisoft’s E3 event, it was a title I couldn’t stop thinking about for the duration of the expo and well beyond. As the months passed by though, the radio silence would have me worried. As its initial release window of February 2020 started to approach, it became more apparent with the lack of information that this target wouldn’t be hit, and sure enough we would eventually get confirmation of a delay. The game has now finally resurfaced, and after having spent two hours with it as part of a hands-on event, Gods & Monsters – now known as Immortals Fenyx Rising – has come far since its reveal and may prove to be one of Ubisoft’s most beautiful, magical, and adventurous titles in a very long time.
