This week, Jon stepped out and we're joined by Jonny. The good doctor had a chance to play Switch at PAX South, and he kicks off New Business. He offers impressions on the hardware and many of Switch's upcoming titles, such as Arms and The Legend of Zelda: Jokers Are Wild. Guillaume is now the second RFN member to struggle with the 3DS D-Pad playing a VC title, and he shares his thoughts on Super Metroid. He also has a few words regarding a game with no D-Pad, Super Mario Run. James is back in Japan, not literally, but rather by fully submersing himself in the world of Yakuza 0. It's a strange world of criminal intrigue and chickens dressed as businessmen. Greg has been on a self-described "Shmupapalooza," with special attention paid to the 3DS remake of Steel Empire.

After the break, Jonny steps out and we answer a couple of Listener Mail questions. This week we discuss the role of HD Rumble in rhythm games, and what series we'd like to see on Switch. You can rumble our Joy-Cons by sending us an email.

As a reminder, we're rapidly approaching our RetroActive on Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom! If you want your thoughts read on the show, go ahead and get started playing. You can post them in the official thread.

Johnny talking about a Fencing style 1-2-switch game made me realize a game I now desperately want for the Switch.

I want a port of NIDHOGG!

How badass would that be to bring that to a party and just get folks in on some Nidhogg action?!?


That game has some of the best back and fourth and it's so easy for anyone to pick up on, and it's entertaining to watch too. it'd be so PERFECT to get in some games on the go with by handing off Joycons for folks to play with.

I'm just finishing episode 506. Still basking in the disdain for Wii-Speak 2.0 boogaloo.


I'd like to think somewhere out there, there are still some 'ride or die' wii-speakers to this very day!

You're not wrong...Nidhogg 2 would be a great addition to Switch, especially with built-in controls for 2.

Always nice to hear front Jonny. His switch thoughts on the switch was very interesting. After the Switch Presentation, I had no interest in 1-2-Switch. But after hearing a lot of people talk about it, I want to at least try it now.
Besides Splatoon 2, I'm mostly interested in Arms.

Switch details were cool.


The controls for Super Metroid on 3DS didn't seem to be a problem for me. Weird. I do wish they had custom buttons for sure.
