Thank you for your continued please understanding! Welcome back for another episode of your favorite NWR podcast that is recorded in Japan (boom!)! This time around, the guys continue on with the shared new business talking about their playoff Super Smash Bros. match against the RFN crew. Sure, you’ve watched the video, but now get the down low from the guys themselves about what happened behind the scenes! You don’t want to miss it!

New business continues on per usual with Ty kicking things off. The last time we checked in with him, Ty was on a quest to be one of the best in Killer Instinct players in the world (for real!). Tune in to see what kind of progress he made and how many times he played as the lovely Orchard.

JC is continuing the trend of playing a boatload of games again. That means you get to hear more about DS games on Wii U, and the original name of one of the characters in Donkey Kong 64. With JC being from the UK, obviously he has the inside scoop from Rare themselves. Danny closes things out with a brief mention of Majora’s Mask 3D as well as an in depth look at the recently released Amiibo Tap.

After the crew touches on a bit of news, they go ahead and tackle questions and comments that came in via email and Twitter. If you want your letter read out on the next show, be sure to send something to the guys on Twitter (@thefamicast) or via email (famicast@nintendoworldreport.com). Also be sure to stick around for some outtakes at the end of the show! Wanky a go-go, baby!

I'm having trouble with downloading or listening.

ClexYoshiMay 01, 2015

Love the show but man what was that song title at 1 hour and 17 mins? It was incredible.

I already shared this with Jon on Twitter, but in case anybody else was wondering the same thing, you can find that song in the link below!

I officially stopped playing DK64 the moment my review went up. There is quite a debate going on on that article, but I guess no one who listens to the Famicast seems to mind the DK trolling!  :cool; ;D

Keep your emails coming in for the next episode by the way, it's going to be E3-flavoured methinks.

Some E3 predictions:

Another revision of the 3DS.
Game and Watch games on Virtual Console...on the Wii U
Kirby's Air Ride 2

Mario Kart 8 DLC part three: Metroid

Russ: Worst. Predictions. Ever.

The pros (AKA, me) will be doing them next episode, although I'm hesitant to do it because I'm usually SO ACCURATE that it takes all the fun out of the actual reveals.

ClexYoshiMay 06, 2015

by the way, Ty... are you coming on out for Combo Breaker? you could probably crash on Carl's couch or something while you gorge on deep-dish pizza and beat up scrubs! :O

RussGreenoMay 07, 2015

I'm very pessimistic, so expecting the worst E3 hopefully means anything they do will look amazing.

By the by, Wanky Kong is a legitimate (albeit wrong) answer to a quiz "show" question in DKC2.

famicomplicatedJames Charlton, Associate Editor (Japan)May 11, 2015

Sorry TYP, I immediately doubted that and had to check it.

Swanky's Swag
Q. What is my name?
A. Swanky
B. Wonky
C. Stinky

The reason being, "wank" or variations thereof, are incredibly rude in the UK, and would have been shocked if it was in a kid-friendly game like DK!

For more fun "rude in one country but not in the other", see Spaz/spastic and bastard.
Aint language fun!

Wonky. Wanky. Whatever.

(I stand corrected.)

you also missed 'Bugger', 'Nob', 'knickers', and of course 'Semprini'.
