Wait, a Famicast so early on in the month? What magic is this? Well it just so happens that a rather large game came out this week, so two Famidudes set about to get a podcast for you as soon as possible! Whereas you may have watched streams and read about Smash Bros for 3DS from guys playing it in the US, this is the only place you'll hear about the online modes as played by two dudes living in Japan! In fact, the whole of New Business is just about Smash, so listen and enjoy some spoiler-free talk on the single player modes, the StreetPass mode and of course the long-awaited oh-God-I-hope-it's-better-than-Brawl online mode. How does it fare? Listen in for the definitive verdict!

After all that Smash talk, the guys delve into the news; listen in to find out what Mega-men and Ice-Splashers are and where you can eat them. Also hear about some comments from Japanese gamers playing Dragon Quest X on the 3DS. Are they happy with the new portable version?

The show wraps up with your letters, on two very different topics, one on MMOs on Nintendo systems, the other which may have not been entirely suitable for the Famicast, but hey, we're glad to get any letters! Of course, if you have any questions, comments, complaints or criticisms, be sure to hit us up! You can leave a message in the Talkback below, send an email to famicast@nintendoworldreport.com, tweet at us @thefamicast, or post in the revamped Questions for the NWR Japan crew forum thread.

We've been playing the "pronoun game" in these show notes, as we don't want to give away the surprise for who is on the show, but long-term fans of the Famicast will surely hear a familiar voice! So pause that Smash demo for a moment, grab a Thunder-Ale, and listen to the best (and only) Nintendo podcast right out of Japan!

Famicast a GO-GO baby!

Of course you get a mention, you're the official Fami-artist!  ;D

I was secretly hoping that Ty would be on and that instead of Smash Bros you'd just talk about Killer Instinct for 2 hours. XD


Seriously, it's always a good time hearing James Charlton on the show. he's a voice I most certainly miss, as well as Minoru's.... heck, what happened to Minoru? does he still have anything to do with Nintendo World Report at all?

Much thanks! It's very good to be back. I look forward to participating in the forums once again. :D

Minoru is unfortunately very busy with his work, and every free minute he has he's playing Dark/Demon's Souls! :P:

I laughed in the blooper segment where you couldn't activate music playing while 3DS is shut at first, because during japanese live stream last week, the guy showing this feature did the same mistake.

Hahaha, I'm just glad Danny figured out why otherwise I'd have been doing it all night!

Ty...errr, we need more context with that photo!?

Sony paid for all of the indie games booth and now Barkley 2 is stealing the show!

famicomplicatedJames Charlton, Associate Editor (Japan)September 18, 2014

Oooh! Absolutely nowhere in that photo is Barkley mentioned.

Let's try and find it on Saturday!
