This episode is hot! By that we mean the whole Famicrew is HOT! By that we mean, physically in pain from the sweltering humidity here in the far east.

Alas, onwards with the show! Danny talks about the least import friendly Nintendo 3DS game ever, Dragon Quest X Online. How do those on screen touch buttons work out for him? Next, Ty discussed Microsoft's new Virtual Console service, where they have kindly put 30 classic Nintendo games for a dollar each! Only available on the Xbox eShop unfortunately. JC wraps things up with some Splatoon impressions. Did the long wait for the 2.0 patch work out to his advantage? Probably not.

A whole bunch of Japanese news is consumed, Devil's Third, DQX, DQXI, Mario Maker, Animal Crossing, and 3DS Karaoke Joysound. Basically all the games Japanese gamers love. It's a good time! Be sure to listen to what's lighting up the Japanese charts too, the amount of Xbox One consoles sold this week may shock* you!

Lastly the crew tackle your lovely letters and tweets, starting with a pretty heavy Life in Japan type question about Japanese teens. Are they all videogame playing shut-ins, or just misunderstood?

Be sure to drop us a line famicast@nintendoworldreport.com or on Twitter @thefamicast. We'd love to hear from you!

Hello lovely Famipeople!  :cool;


Yes, I know I'm a bit quiet in this episode, I'M SORRY, mmkay? I was using my American-design fruit-based tablet computer at the time. I blame Danny.
Anyway, did you guys enjoy the episode? Even more so because Sairus wasn't on I bet?
Just kidding. Or am I....


What are you looking forward to us discussing next show?
I totally forgot to talk about the Luigi's Mansion arcade game. Next time, I promise!

I had the bug with japanese achievements names! All my 360 "Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker" achievements show up in Japanese despite my physically living in PAL-land and using US account.

Bought disc from german online retailer, so it's PAL just like my console.

Apparently it just happens randomly with certain games.

I don't know what to say to that. That's hilarious

There is an extensive Nintendo Splatoon Tumblr http://splatoonus.tumblr.com/
Probably the best thing Nintendo Of America does social media wise.
