Episode 73 - HARD BOILED PIKACHU
« on: February 14, 2016, 06:02:00 PM »

Detective Pikachu cross Bayonetta divided by Hyrule Warriors equals Wii U shortages in Japan?

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/famicast/41934/episode-73-hard-boiled-pikachu

It’s another episode of the Famicast where Wii bring U the most horrifying Nintendo puns and news from deep in Japan!

To start us off, James has a quick recap on what he’s played this week, including a pretty in depth discussion about Bayonetta’s recent arrival in Smash Bros. Danny has been working through Detective Pikachu, a game I’m sure those who don’t speak Japanese are curious to hear about. Ty remains our anchor to the outside world and weighs in on the non-Nintendo stuff he’s been playing and finally Sairus drags himself away from Hyrule Warriors long enough to record a podcast.

James’ special Splatoon and Mario Maker segment returns due to popular (?) demand, and there’s a wealth of stuff to talk about this week from new characters to the best Splatfest that ever was.

In current news the crew touch on new revelations for Pokemon and Pokken, discuss a world without future updates to Smash Bros. and talk about a pretty surprising turn as retailers run into Wii U shortages in Japan.

As usual we also talk about the notable new releases and pick apart this week’s sales figures for Japan before going through all of our listener feedback and comments. Somehow we also find time to squeeze in a segment of Ty’s ever popular Fake or Real!

It’s a packed show, so strap in and… do whatever you usually do while listening to podcasts I guess.

Really enjoyed JC Presents Super Mario Super Splat Party Hour, but I'm not sure about the long term viability of the segment.

Although the editing is consistently great, I felt that this week it was especially on point and that I appreciate the hard work that goes into it.

Thanks man! Yeah I dunno how much longer it will last either.
It may become a non-regular "when appropriate" feature in the future...

Yeah! Since finishing up the edit of this episode, I've actually beat the game. I'm working on the review for it now. Expect to see that up on the site in the next couple of days!

There hasn't been any word yet. I think it will, though. I think they've put too much into it to just lock it to Japan only.
