Your three heroes (and Ty) are back for another insightful look into Japanese Nintendo gaming from a foreign perspective! To start off, in a special segment James, Danny and Sairus give their extremely mixed opinions on the recent stress test demo of Hyrule Heroes. Once they’ve all finished bitching about how stupid their teammates were, the whole crew discuss what other new(?) games they’ve been playing this month. Could this be the day that Ty actually plays a Nintendo game? Be sure to check it out!

In the news section we cover the possible issues with the recent Smash Bros Shovel Knight rumor as the game has yet to release here, along with updates on Pokken, Yokai Watch and an exciting look into the world of Nintendo stationary!

Moving along we take a look at some uninspiring sales charts for the week and upcoming releases before Ty dazzles us with another round of the always popular Real or Fake segment.

Before moving onto the letters we also open a new recurring segment on the show where we discuss the latest developments in Mario Maker and our experiences with the game.

It’s a pretty packed show, so strap yourselves in!

Full disclosure: I did decide to arrange my Disney Infinity figures by color after we finished recording.

Thank baby Buddha. I know I was concerned.

Triforce Heroes feels exactly like Link Between Worlds but with puzzles designed for 3 people instead of 1. It's 4 swords that's randomly generated, Triforce Heroes is more inline with typical Zelda.

Heh Bamco Namci.

I loved Shadow of the Empire, I would never want to go back to it though lest I remember how disgustingly janky it is.

Couple of things I forgot to mention about TFH, the lag and the disconnection I had...
Couple times it stopped mid game and I got an Internet browser style spinning circle. Another time it just crapped out altogether, although the that might have been a rage quitter.

Oh and my Chibirobo competition:
