Nintendo Direct Reax, Lost Ark, And Battles To The Death

Nintendo Direct Reax, Lost Ark, And Battles To The Death

This week's episode delve into all of the biggest Nintendo Direct news: Live a Live; Front Mission remakes, Xenoblade Chronicles, and much more! Plus: Lost Ark!

Episode Notes

There are people out there who hang onto news about Nintendo Directs the way a religious person might fervently cling to signs of Jesus’ return. Humanity is still waiting on the second coming of the Lord, but Nintendo offered a nice stop-gap last week. The February Nintendo Direct was bursting with incredible RPG news—and some of it was simply bananas. A 2D HD remake of Live A Live? Absolutely nobody had that on their Bingo card. Well, it’s doubtful anyone had “Kirby inhales objects bigger than your mom in Kirby and the Forgotten Land” either. To reiterate a point made earlier, it was a strange Direct.

In addition to the Nintendo Direct RPG news, we talk about:

  • Nadia is bad at Final Fantasy Tactics
  • Waddle Dee broke the internet news machine wide open
  • Lost Ark is already huge — can it keep up that momentum?
  • More RPG nominations for the 25 Best RPGs of All Time Intergrade
  • If we get to $8000 per month, Nadia and Eric’s dads will fight each other
  • $10,000, and we’ll make it to the death
