Episode 76 - MIITROLLO
« on: March 26, 2016, 02:37:35 AM »

What do this podcast and Miitomo have in common? They're both hot in Japan of course!

Yōkoso and welcome to another special episode of the Famicast – your bimonthly look into the world of Japanese gaming from the perspective of a bunch of foreigners! This episode was recorded live, so you can check out the video edition below.

In New Business we have an extended discussion on Nintendo’s new excursion into mobile apps as most of the Famicast Crew try out the currently Japan exclusive Miitomo. Of course Ty is having none of that and instead talks about Japan finally getting a release of DOOM! No, not that one.

In current news we take a quick look back at the recent Nintendo Direct since we managed to uh, completely forget to talk about most of the interesting Japanese releases finally making their way to the West in our previous episode. We also weigh in on’s recent move to allowing international shipping on games, the fate of the WiiU and a mid-show news drop about Pokemon GO.

As usual we also go through this weeks sales charts to see what’s hot in Japan, and what’s not. (Spoilers: it’s the Xbox One).

We have a special Life in Japan segment to round out the show too, where we talk about Japan’s famous customer service. We have plenty of stories about this, both good and bad, so it’s a fun ride!

I really liked the life in Japan segment this episode, customer service isn't something you'd normally think about but it was interesting to see how things could be done differently for better or worse.

Gah, sorry again for my awful mic quality. I had no idea I sounded so terrible for such a large part of the show. My system just randomly sometimes does not play nice with Google Hangouts  :/

I'll make sure to have that all under control for the next live show.
