A brand new console is almost upon us, but who cares about that?! This month is still mostly Nintendo 3DS focused in new business, as we bring you impressions for various titles. Minoru, Daan and Danny have all been playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf and everyone seems to have their own take on it! How will Minoru enjoy it as a newcomer to the series? Can Daan rekindle his love for the series and has Danny found new interest for Animal Crossing at all? You might as well go and listen to find out!
Elsewhere, Ty got his hands on a shiny new Nintendo 3DS XL, which he gladly tells us about. He even got a game for it! Ty also talks a little bit about Skullgirls and its upcoming Arcade release in Japan. He comes full circle with The Walking Dead, which is certainly not the cheeriest of games. After this, Daan and Danny discuss both Fallblox (Hiku Otsu) and E.X. Troopers, which are some high quality titles for the system. Daan ends it off with Paper Mario: Sticker Star, though he kind of leaves us on a cliffhanger. Who doesn't leave us on hanging on a cliff is Danny, who has been struggling through Assassin's Creed III. Did he get this stabby stabby fix? After we figured that one out, it turns out Danny fell into a plothole (possibly in an Animus, though not confirmed) and comes across Matt. They start gushing Bravely Default, but afterwards fate strips the two apart.
Back in our reality, we head into the news, where the glorious bastards at Nintendo Company Limited have prepared several Nintendo Directs. From Band Brothers to Brain Training, from the infamous Wii U unboxing to discussions about storage solutions, no stone stays untouched. We also discuss the latest Media Create charts, see what is right around the corner and end with a few smaller bits.
In Life in Japan, we get a strange letter from a person from the past. This may totally sound like inception to you, but believe us, we don't make this stuff up! The ghost warns about a grave danger called WaraWara, and wants to us uncover things in depth. Who are we to say no to a challenge? We end off the episode with some listener mail, who asks about the current situation on downloadable games in Japan and around the world. Is the digital revolution close by or is this future safe... for now? Hop into that crazy time traveling car and beware of Wii U, Marty!
