What’s good, spider balls and morph balls! It’s bonus time! We had so much to talk about in NEP 026 that we made it double the length! We’ll also be doing an EXTRA episode during the week: a spoilercast for Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy!

In this episode of NEP, we discuss the controversy of Persona 5 not being announced for Switch and the Nintendo community’s negative reaction. This leads us to talk about reality vs expectation, vocal gaming culture and how some gamers handle disappointment. We then lighten things up by talking about Super Mario Maker 2’s upcoming release, Nintendo’s financial briefing, and some more information about Nintendo and Tencent Holdings partnership to break into the Chinese market with the release of Nintendo Switch.

We hope you enjoy the extra effort this week! As ever, we would appreciate your help in growing the show by sharing the podcast with a friend! Thanks for listening!
