Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition

Hello, my pop stars and mirages! This week on NEP, it’s nonstop controversy. Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore is going to be censored in all regions, including Japan. What does that mean? What really happened? There’s a lot of misinformation out there, so let us break it down for you. Same thing with Activision-Blizzard recently. Overwatch came out on the Switch this past week—did you notice? We do our best to inform you on what’s going on. And we lighten things up with some heavy, chonky Pokemon announcements. Longcat Meowth is a good boy. Plus, our ideal Pokemon catching tutorial stories. We tidy things up with a chat about Xenoblade Definitive Edition thanks to our lovely listener mail.

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!

Hello, my geese and goslings! This week on NEP we’ve got some controversial and complex talking points: Hero being banned then unbanned in official Nintendo France tournaments (and what constitutes an OP character or a ban), Mario Kart Tour and the success and failure of mobile games and how that affects genuine gaming, and the Switch Lite launching on the market. We then get some great listener mail sent to us and we blather on there, too, because complex issues require complex analysis.
