Hello, my beautiful goombas!

This week on NEP, Oni and Galen wade through the concept of Xbox Live on Nintendo Switch, discuss the weekly news, and banter over all the talking points that Nintendo gave us from their Financial Q&A.

Plus, Oni talks the importance of women in the (Nintendo) workplace in regards to Japanese society and Galen tells us all about what game he needs to see revived in his lifetime.
