You found another Famicast, congratulation - a winner is you! The crew have some shared experiences to chat about first, mainly Danny's wedding where he officially became a samurai, or got married, one of the two anyway. The guys then discuss the ups and downs of the Smash Bros tournament, still ongoing here at NWR. Who is coming out on top in this fighting game competition? The answer may shock you!

Moving onto New Business, Danny talks about Theatrhythm Dragon Quest, bizarrely he's not that into it, despite it being part of a game series he has put hundreds of hours into. Ty then talks about some new Animal Crossing DLC. Just kidding, it's Killer Instinct again! He also finds time to freak Danny out with talk of Slender, a first person horror game based on a meme, what fun! JC has been playing a load of games; the crazy end worlds of Boxboy, a DS game on Wii U (where else), plus an awesome free game from Club Nintendo.

Next up is the Nintendo Direct, focussing on the Japan side of things, as is tradition on the Famicast! The crew discuss all the new games heading to Japan; Fire Emblem, Rhythm Heaven, Dragon Ball Z, Fatal Frame, and….Little Inferno? Never a dull moment, we promise you.

The show wraps up with a quick feedback and comments section (we were running long), Danny is somehow allowed to talk about Japanese music in a positive manner.

After you're done consuming this wondrous audio delight, get excite for the live show real soon! We'd love some more letters and tweets to read out so send them to the usual places like famicast@nintendoworldreport.com or @thefamicast on Twitter. Much thanks!

Ty has had the same 'new' business for forever.

I am honestly surprised you guys didn't go more into Hisako. you guys basically went over her basic inspiration and the most basic mechanic to her. XD I honestly look at her more as a Third Strike character. I see folks who play her more for the mix ups that having command grabs that convert and all her delayed hits that mess with the flow of breakers. also, she has a ton of options after her counter hits and I think she's pretty nuts and awesome, even if I'm not down with the atheistic.

Also, the fact that she is a ripoff of a bit of folklore/pop culture kinda fits in with the rest of the KI mythos? I mean, Fulgore is literally the predator, Tusk is Conan, Riptor was cashing in on Jurassic Park popularity, TJ Combo is essentially Clubber Lang from Rocky... I think Hisako fits in the same way that MAH SOUP fits the cast.

Yeah, I know it's pretty much the only game I play right now, so I didn't want to go on about it forever. It's also going to be the only game I play for at least the rest of the month, because I need my top 32 pro medal. I have been playing Hisako a lot, but I'm not sure how many people want to hear me talk about how much her c.mk needs to be respected or whatever. She's very fun, though. I don't remember if I said it or not, but I think if you like Makoto from SF3, you'll like Hisako.

Also, behold, the true inspiration for Fulgore, according to character designer Kev Bayliss:

I don't remember if I said it or not, but I think if you like Makoto from SF3, you'll like Hisako.

I was trying to be a little subtle about it, but yes. everything from the slow walk speed but fast dashes to the command grabs used for conversions, She really does feel like Makoto. or at least that's what I noticed. I don't actually have an Xbox One, but my friend does... so I don't get to really play that much online.

I... huh. that's cool. never saw that, but I can see where you could get Fulgore out of that! at any rate, I'll look forward to your next new business where you haven't had time to try out story mode because you've been too busy getting back to Killer rank again. :P
