"crossing new horizons" Discussed on Nintendo Power Podcast

"Now Morgan you came on the show back at the launch of Super Mario Maker to and you know at least in my opinion. You're you're definitely expert at this game having created courses for competitive events going all the way back to the first Super Mario Maker on the we use system so definitely want to hear what you have to say about the new updates and you find even among everyone here at America that are currently you know really into playing Anima Crossing Horizons. You GotTa have a special status. Because people go to your island they come back with all these amazing stories of just how wonderful place it is and you just gave me a tour and I got to experience it for myself and it definitely left up to their reputation so I can't wait to talk about about that so you find at. How many hours have you played animal crossing horizons again? I think we're probably like to twenty or something now to over two twenty. Wow it definitely shows it. I went to your line. It was almost like we were playing different games. The difference was that great anyway. Like I said you guys are the perfect people to talk to about these games in these updates and I wanNA start first. The Super Mario Maker to you know a lot of our listeners will know version. Three point. Zero was released on April twenty second and this included some really big updates most notably to me world maker mode. We could create your own super worlds. That are up to eight worlds and and forty total courses each and you can also find him play other people's Super Worlds and basically you know you you find someone's super world and you get a title screen. You get a map you go from stage to stage you know you you finish you get come a short ending and it's like a full self-contained game now that you can make with. Super Mario Maker too so let's start there Morgan. What what was your first impression. I guess as you were starting to experiment with this and just what are your thoughts on on on world maker. Yeah I'm so excited that will make our finally made it. I mean I think I think it's something all of us that Played or or worked on the game. It's like making courses great but you kind of in the back of your mind. You're like I want to put these together. I want my you know I wanna I WANNA world map. I want to be able to link these things and I was really cool to see all the work that the team did to put that sort of bring it tomorrow. Maker Super Mario Maker to and the most exciting thing for me is just that I think in some ways it sort of takes the pressure off of makers in a way because just a single course. I feel like sometimes people. Maybe you try to do too much like you. Try to pack everything you can think of into one course because that's sort of your this course. Somebody plays that course. It's like this is my calling card is a as a mario maker. But now you can sort of edit those ideas into these bite-size nuggets and linked them altogether and have different thematic worlds. And that's what it was exciting for me to see not just that you could link courses together but you could have like you said up to eight worlds and you can have a snow one. An ice one Sorry it doesn't one a forest one It suddenly watercourses might make more sense because you have The world route go into the water. And then pop back out or you go. Climb a vine up into the clouds. And that's where you have your airship level so I think it really is going to help makers sort of refine edit and sort of build their own little like you said there little mario masterpiece. Yeah absolutely and you know. That's you mentioned some of the customization you can do on the map. And that's something that I really found appealing in even down to the actual little icons that represent your course on the map. I had a water level and I was happy to find that that could make you know the little dot on the map for that level. A LAKE. So it really. You know they really lineup. And you can really put that same level of thought in there that that they must have put into some classic Super Mario Games like Super Mario World. Which is where the look of the map in this game comes from so you find you. Have you played much cheaper maker to in the past? Are you aware of kind of all these new updates? Yeah Yeah you know. It's this actually brought me back in so I I sometimes lack. I need kind of that creative direction to really push me to be a little bit more creative right so I do feel like this. Update it gives me more direction in terms of like the story. I want to tell them that. That's what really makes me excited to play it. And now I feel like sometimes get lost in like you know what direction to go next with certain levels or alibi levels and looking the same. Do you feel like this. This update give me an opportunity to think about okay. What's the bigger world story? I WanNa tell and then really build my levels around that so I'm super excited about it. Yeah and I think that's a great point that that that really affects how you think about your course design now or at least it does for me. I mean my first super bowl that together really just was a way to collect the ten stages at already made and put a lot of time into but now I WANNA create more and create more courses that I can build into more worlds. And I'm thinking more like you know our any to a need to have a certain rhythm to this. It's like re imagined recording an album versus recording a single right. You want to think about how one level leads into the next. And you're slowly ramping up. The difficulty and kind of spacing out a variety of types of levels so all this new strategy comes into play. That's got me really looking at it. As as a whole kind of game now and not just as one shot levels and then moving onto some of the new course parts that were also added to the game starting with enemies. First of all seven coupons and each of them have different attack patterns and that really immediately added a significant number of new bosses to the game which was great. I haven't even a chance to try them all yet. And then you've got the cursed key from Super Mario Brothers to which is great. You grab that key and then Fanta the enemy fantastic chases as you hold it. So kind of a risk reward there and then Mecca coupons. Who Personally I've been really looking forward to having them added to the game because I really loved how they were used in Super Mario World back in the day and they've got all these crazy new abilities now so it seems like there's a lot you can do with those mortgage. What do you think about these these new enemies automation coupons? Our favorite but what jumps out to you. Y- not only are Larry iggy Wendy. LemMe Roy Moore and Ludwig in the game. Now I slept of fitting that you have seven of them and you know. And then you also have bowser in the game obviously there's other enemies and Buzzer Junior. But say you have a super world with eight worlds and you need like and you really are somebody who wants to put a boss at the end of each world while now you have seven. Kupa links and Bowser Browser Junior. Somebody as the final boss. So I mean they're great in their own on just in a course but it's also really cool that That really into that sort of world making in a more traditional really for sort of a boss or like a at the end of course and I also just love the art style. You know those. The lanes are in the four You know Super Mario. Bros super my through my world. And my brothers you They're not in the supermarket style but in the four that they are in just the art is so cool like seeing them in sort of Pixel Forum or in that Super Marlboros Forum Yeah it's it's a great addition and you mentioned the Mecca. Kupa too and yeah it's not just the Mecca Kuba. But he's There's two alternate versions. There's the ZAPPA Mecca Kupa which has sort of a zaps lightning laser bolt thing. And then there's the blast Mecca Kupa and he's blasting those missiles at you sort of like homing missiles so really cool stuff you can do with those. Yeah it's it's kind of like there's so many parts in an enemies now that it it can be a bit overwhelming. It's like when you go to the store buy a toothbrush. And there's like five hundred toothbrushes but the fact that you can now sort of break up your ideas and different courses and build them into world. I think it's it's a good problem to have that. There's a such a large toolbox now for makers to use absolutely and one of the things that I really liked seeing and the announcement video for this update is as they`re. They're talking through the list of new editions. If you actually watched footage there's a lot of great examples of of these new cores parts being used so it's not just a lot of times it's not about throwing everything that you've got into one level but it's about your really digging into the mechanics of maybe one or two different key pieces and really finding creative ways to use those so. I thought that the video gave me a lot of great inspiration on that. I've carry that over into some of the stuff that I'm working on now for sure. So you find you said that you were this is bringing you to the game you as far as these new enemies. Is there anything in there that you're particularly looking forward to working with? Yeah I mean for me. It's the same right at the coupon wings as a kid Super Mario world like those. Those characters are really what stuck out to me and what. I remember and so for me. Now you know as someone who kind of wants a little bit more Little more direction to kind of inspire me as like what the messages around I can. Now choose okay. Well if I'M GONNA put like Larry as the boss of this level when am I going to theme the level around like what's Larry's personality that's kind of how I how I tend to think of? It is just okay I this is what I think Larry rationality is. I'M GONNA put this in his course and really around him so for for me. That's where the fun creativity comes from. Yeah that's great like I said before. It's you really start thinking on a whole other level when it comes to putting putting together a world than using all these pieces well. I'm just going to run through the remaining list of these significant new updates. The rest of these are power ups so to start with the Super Mario Brothers to mushroom which is a favorite of mine. I'll come back to that in a minute. The frog suit that originally appeared in Super Mario Brothers three the power balloon from Super Mario World Super Acorn from new Super Mario Brothers the boomerang flower from Super Mario Three d world and then speaking of Super Mario Three d world along this asks or things that Mara basically put in his head that gives them certain abilities like the Canon box the propeller box. The Goumba mask the bullet bill mask and the RED POW block. That's a Lotta stuff so I won't necessarily to go through the whole thing but but Morgan just looking at all those you know..

"Head. I do a lot of Sam Porter's grunting when I'm by myself. Because he's got such good grunts and I like whenever carrying something it'll be like it's very satisfying to do it. So I highly recommend Sam Puertas grunts being corporated into your regular life for putting his putting your backpack on the paint way he does it to like just sorta wolf putting the pulling the straps over one. Time loading yourself up for the long haul. Yeah that's a lot of fun. I have one that comes to mind. I mean other than you know using my whip on brick walls and then eating the beaten side. That's really what it could well. Everyone does that. Yeah we all do that as for getting somebody to stop doing something right now. We're in we're in hell world so like if somebody's getting joy out of like pretending to be an animal crossing character fuck and let them let them any joy that you can squeeze out of the Hell Reality. Were in the do it. You say maybe you want to respond only in quotes from Decker Kane from Diablo. Two sort of up the end. Maybe you just say stay away. Every time becomes the talk. This next one is from at mad. J Molten animal crossing has cameos from traveling musicians wondering merchants and other occasional visitors. What would you be like as an AC cameo character? I feel like I just show up and then kind of bum. Everyone out could just be kind of like the dark cloud a tropical paradise. Who the fuck is this guy? Just come and make us feel eight. This isn't like this guy. I'd say it'd be the Wilson I'd be like travel roaming Wilson here way too. Nice to be Wilson Neck. Oh that's nice of you to say I wouldn't say the same but yeah I I know quilts. That's spoken like someone who doesn't really know quilt. Maybe I would be like I'd I'd be like hey you. Your trees are all over the fucking place. I I'll dig. If you pay me I'll dig up your trees and Organiz your trees. Ooh It's it's really unsatisfying to me the the the number one most relaxing thing that I've found in the game organizing trees. Yeah so when I go to other people's islands and like there's trees that you can't walk between or trees that make it impossible to walk around something all of that tree nonsense. Really stresses me out. So I'd be like around. Get around that. Pay Me five hundred bells and I'll move five trees and I wouldn't mind Jon. It'd be a character that comes in and will will buy all of your things from inside your house. The things that you have I want them. I'll say I'll take all of them. Jack. Did you see my Gold Wall. Oh you have the gold wall design for the gold floor together on. I haven't made it yet. I didn't see your gold while I have a gold wall now how much that take. Eight eight four four gold. Oh my gosh. That's a lot of golden. Yeah it's four gold but scammer scammers would love to get their hands on that gold all right now. Let's get one more question all right. This is from Amanda. See Tank you had to have one character from animal crossing new horizons or a different social simulation. Game be your soul roommate for the quarantine. Who would it be a good question? Because a lot of the cool villagers I've seen their houses and their houses are wack. Yeah wait the question is if we had to live with one of these fucking things if with yell of quarantine all of what would we choose or is it would we want. Is it half to? What's the question met if we who would it be so it's sort of like a half to? I'M GONNA PICK FOR MY CURRENT ISLANDERS. Ma'am I will say that that Divas. The Frog is clearly horn for me. But she's a little too like she's a she's a lot kid. Cat is also is very cool. He's awesome he's a jock and he he a fabulous dresser but he's also like a lot. He's pretty intense. I think it would go with Wendy. Who's a sheep? Who's very cheery and Just just a lot of my day brightens anytime. I'm near her. I moved her house closer to mine because I like seeing Wendy and she was on this other islands so I think I would go. Wendy the wow I I. One of my islanders is a kangaroo with a little baby kangaroo pouch And and she said something so sad to me She said she had like a rose in my hair or some shit and she was like. Oh man rose how romantic. I hope I find love or somebody special someday and I was like Holy Shit. You've got a baby in your pouch like that. Just means that like whoever knocked up this kangaroo left so definitely not my kangaroo.

"Her a score and she's not all right. Matt something I guess. Negative and then you're numerical score in this game you but even crafting a lot and you're not you're somebody who's normally skeptical of craft and yeah. I'm a crafting. Skeptic is not my favorite device in a video game. I love it in this game. I think it's something about how we pointed out that the the sounds in the game are just so crunchy and they sound so real. I think there's just something to that. That's a very pleasing and I also just like the little animations of him like you know smack in the little hammer and a little dust cloud and then he has a fishing pole. That's fun my negative thing. My negative is. I have a villager who I absolutely hate with every fiber of my being. And he's a little duck named quilt sin. And I hit him every chance that I see him with a net. I have reported him several times to Isabel about his just general demeanor and he he persists. He's he's he's on my island for the long haul apparently and and that's shocking to me because my my best friend dom the sheep came up to me with a distress. Look the other day and said that he was thinking about leaving. I implored him that he should stay that he should stay. And keep living here and he said indeed. Aroo YOU'RE RIGHT. And he made a bond with him early on in a game with first week of the game. He told me he was happy that he lived on an island with someone. Like me. And I'm not joking. I cried in real. Life was so sweet to me the time we're in absolutely. Yeah and you know at that point. I hadn't been outside for four days and he. This sheep made me cry this game is you know I was about to say everything to make. That's true but I had never played a console. Animal crossing this game just is spectacular and the fans of the game and like the community of people online gamers. She's feeling like a special good squad. There's also some really really funny things being made out of like animal crossing like either with the art or like the just like people's postings screen shots video from the game it's just so funny Having the time of my life with this game right now I'm GonNa give it a ten. Wow very good scores all around. And Hey those were our thoughts there. But maybe we're wrong..

"Using for a couple of animal is boom boom boom boom boom. It's like grit. It's any get slight remixes depending on what part of the Museum. You're in what wing of the museum But Blatter's will you'll give them like a fossil or you'll give him like a bug and and then he'll be like Oh thank you so much contribution shall explain to you a little bit about this and I don't WanNa hear what he has to say. 'cause I just don't care but I always let him explain because I feel bad for bladders high. Feel like it would be so rude to be like Now I don't really care about this fuck in you. Know a care bracco sore fossil. You can have it. I saw a listen. Listen a read all the stuff that he tells that he tells me in the game. I listened NBC. I married does that to. Mary listens to everything that Blather says. Incites that she feels bad for him. I do not listen to anything he says and I leave all of the houses with question marks. If they're not building any I have not like trying to like edge. Lord my my my my experience of animal crossing here. It's just like but if those things aren't enjoyable to you I mean you've said the question mark itself is it's we it. Feels like avoidance like feels like. You're you're doing things because you're avoiding the feeling that the game could engender gender in you correct. Yeah that's true. Yeah I mean that's how I live my life. I just go into people's houses and don't talk to him and then leave. That's how I just always Irish goodbye. I think there is part of me that there is a communication element of it. I worry that if I do that too. Many times a villager. I worry that. The game has programmed in Alike negative effect. If you do that over time your village are will move out. I don't know but I like to think the thing. The things that make villagers do and do not move out are like kind of opaque in this game. It doesn't really tell you what affects that and this is the newest version and I would not be surprised if that was part of it. What is moving out of the village? Do the villagers just gone they. The what is it. Does it do anything is it? Does it just like they? They leave and somebody else comes But if you like. I have villagers that I really like that have been over multiple games. What makes you like them like? What is it about a village? I know Muno Fair question And I think also that you're bringing up here. Heather is that a lot of people like different things about this game rake. There's there isn't really a right way to play it. If you WanNa Gel turn your whole house until Abell farm. Some people just want to make as much money as possible for me. I really like what makes me like villagers. I like a lot of his aesthetic Because there's only eight personality types for for the for the guys and four for the girls and those. There is a reason to collect all eight in that. They teach different recipes. Like if you have for grouchy which is one of the cranky. One of the one of the male personality types. They're going to teach you a lot of stuff like jail bars and security camera and off until you want. That's the sort of villagers that you should have in your town for your for your creepy illegal crime bathroom but also like one of the. Ostriches is basically colored to look like a Phoenix and her name is Phoebe and she's one of my favorites so I went on twitter was like does anyone have phoebe moving out. I will come to your town and invite her to live in my town and I like brought presents to that person I was like. What are you want? I'll bring you an orange rose so that you can bring the now. Phoebe lives in my town and phoebe moves out. I'll be pissed. Yeah the other villagers you got that I really like when I visited was is doc Dr. Yes the glass. Says he's very cool. He's cool he's a lazy type. He's his he talks to bugs allot And he's like he's. He says something about him made me think he was English. And maybe his catchphrase. I forget what it is. Mary's friend Christina. Who is now? Also my friend by virtue of being in my life friends work. She has an islander who is a bunny inside of an eyeless mask Whoa like the mask is like made out of like some kind of plague material. It's like a like a rubbery canvas And the bunny has no face and no is whole fucked up animals. There's a there's a clown sheep who I fan island in. Pa Him didn't want any part of that. Thank you very much There's a frog who's a robot. Cool his name is Robert. I believe there's a there's yeah there's a Lotta. We're one of the horses Unicorn. His name is Julian. One of the alligators is a dragon. I kind of want all the mythical animal villagers a little trying to get them. But I have a full town right now I had a burdening move a chicken move in. His name was Ken. I was thrilled. He was a random move him but he's a karate bird. Wow that's awesome. Nice should we? Should we wrap up our thoughts? And yeah get to some other stuff. We're yeah I mean like we could talk about this forever like like the game like the game forever we can talk about about this ever never ends. It's time for the review crew.

"This island. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA push back on that point. Yeah how many zero percent loans have you received in your lifetime as a human being could pay back any time. Where under percent of the thing is done before you receive the loan I agree. I think the most benevolent of these of this. These guy. These kind of figures that I've encountered yeah zero percent interest rate. Nope no late penalty and just given all the resources upfront. It's it's pretty impressive. It's Pretty. It's a pretty slick deal yet. Tom nook looks like to what what most Americans would identify as the coon. He is in fact. He's even called a raccoon in like the English text. Versions of it. He is in fact a rookie. Which is the same thing like you guys would know this. Like the the suit that Mario Wears and some of the Mario Games also confusing because Mario has both a raccoon suit and Thanou pursuit. They're separate suits and Super Mario brothers. Three Oh I didn't know that. Yeah the raccoon suit is the one you get with the leaf in the suit you get in the late game and one one is a full covering and the other is just like tail and ears. Yeah Oh that's right. Yeah so waiting going. Intendo fucking confusing children. What Super Mario? Three is not a good game So Tom nook has two sons. Tommy and Timmy Timmy. That's right son's service. Who WORKED FOR HIM AND CALL HIM? Sir SORTA and they open a store of. They're they're also working for Tom. Nook of this sure do. Yeah it's done junior eric.

"Thirty very good. Who could you do? A bunch of noncompetitive activities like fishing bug catching fossil hunting. You Plant Trees You Harvest. The trees There is no end to the game. You can play it for ever. And it uses the internal clock in order to tell what day of the actual world it is And simulates the passage of time. So when it's nighttime where you actually are. It is nighttime in the game And that is sort of like the. The General Concept of the game is yeah Organiz an island for sure and it also asks you know ask what hemisphere you're in when you're creating your character because depending on where you are on the globe it will alter the seasons and and the the the weather in general sense. That weather is not completely tied to the weather immediately outside but it does. The seasons are are and the way the game begins in the end the basically the structure of it the way you are incentivized is to to to make improvements making -cremento improvements to your home and your island on this In this game is at the behest of Tom Nook the landlord slash despot..

"We do that as time as we always do to spend seventy seconds in. Gaming Heaven Kinda solve ready yes so I finished death stranding it happened. I leaving the game through all fourteen chapters however many they are stuck on chapter four for a while and then it was stuck on another chapter. The chapters are different lengths which is very disorienting. Put the game as a masterpiece. I loved it. It's one of my favorite games of the generation. My favorite games of the decade. It's so so good I will remember that ending forever. It is so like it. The narrative is so impactful Narrative Leahy and then and also you know in terms of speaking to its broader themes. It's a classic Kojima. It's it's so so good. The ending is so fucking long. I couldn't believe it I thought it was ending and I had like four hours understating. I'm not overstating it it's so long. It keeps going watching a thirty minute cinematic. And then there's more gameplay and then another like our long cinematic and then more gameplay yeah yeah remember. I texted you. I was like I think it'd beat the game and then like thirty minutes later. I texted you guys and I was like I. The game still happening. It's very disoriented. Grow okay man that when you when you texted me that you'd beaten it. It was the happiest I've been since coveted hat. Wow I'm really not I'm really we're overtime now but I'm really glad that I did. It's one of those. We got a few replies when I when he posted on social media that he finished it from people who are like I gave up on it or whatever and I just like yeah. There s there was some stretches where. I felt like that and even towards the end I was like man. This is feeling interminable but is it is one of the more satisfying games to play to completion. That I've experienced. Yeah Isoflurane just a great ending. I think is the best ending of any game I've ever played. Wow it's up there you know. Mario having a dream at the end of Super Mario Brothers two is pretty good. So that for me. I'll always sorry sorry guest or no out of that serious. Hey our guest is an actor and comedian from musical Improv. Podcast off. Look you can see him on bruise. Brothers streaming on Netflix Zachary. Knows here is Zack. Hey Hey heather hello good. Good good to see you all. We're so happy to have you back. Zach thank you so much for making time for us and my pleasure. I believe they're preemptively reached out. When up was talking about this game I was like I basically called virtual dibs on about the last time I was on this podcast. Yeah absolutely I remember that discussion and I know you and I have talked via text some a little bit of a Snafu with switch codes. I'm bad with switched codes. I've gotten better at it but switched. Codes are so clunky they added when someone says. I'm perfect science. You'd be bad at at this. What do you mean by bad at it? I'm not so so upset. I forget to add a switch code that someone sends me because it's like an extra step versus like getting a friend request. I'll get like here's my switch code. Put My what my code in by friend code in. Yeah and then I forget to do that. And then and then they also didn't have my own code at the ready so I couldn't be like. Hey here's my friend. I now with my friend code saved and in my notes APP so exactly what that means like a lot easier but cumbersome online system. But we'll we'll talk about that in a second. I WanNa talk a little bit about 'cause I know you're a big Fan and right now there is a I mean the remake of maybe the biggest jr g. what's significant Final fantasy seven. The finalize the remake is out. I've dabbled in this a little bit. I live two hours of gameplay that I got in after I knocked out. Ds Phelan. I've I love it I love it. Have you played it all yet? I haven't I'm because of the other game that we were talking about the hours of play on the other game. I won't get into exactly how many I have I will say it's three digits and it starts with a two. I truthfully a lot. I know I'm not proud of it but I will own it because it is just. I don't know that it would be that high if the role wasn't what the world is right now but it is and that's where we are but as of this recording. How long has the game that out? It's been out since the twentieth of March. So it's been almost a month so not an insignificant percentage of the days that have gone like it's high numerically. We can do the math. Somebody can somebody do the math? I'm too dumb to do it in my head. I'm ashamed to do it but for someone six hours a day so forth of every day. Twenty five hundred twenty five percent of the time since the game has come out. I have to play the game numbers a little bit because sometimes I'll just leave it on for hours which you can do in this game with. No you can do basically anything in this game with no concern. But I can't I will. I will be playing final fantasy seven. I. I don't know that I beat it. The first time was out. So I'm going to beat this one I haven't haven't yet because clearly something is already taking too much of my time and I I was thankfully seven when it came out it was at the point where my my hours per day of animal crossing and obviously it finish that stranding which. I forced myself to do before playing a minute of of of a seven remake but it had gotten to the point where now like. I just had to do like a maintenance level of gameplay everyday on animal crossing and then so I I can budget some other time for a for recreational gaming. I guess I'll call it which I it's I mean it's it's I guess it's absurd to have two games going at once but it's kind. It does kind of work out nicely for that. What are we going to say? Heather I don't have any idea what I was GONNA say. None I've zero idea. It may not have been words. Could visit than anything you could have just been.

"AH ten sweater doesn't suit me the gym shirt. Look just sorta like a t shirt and I probably could've pulled it off except the I know in my heart. It's a gym shirt and a gym shirt doesn't suit me so I just need some sort of gray shirt. If they could just have a grey comfortable looking shirt you should just make design for a shirt. That's just all great. I gave myself glasses. They're not read but I did give myself glasses and I gave myself shoes that I like. I couldn't find checks. But they're close enough and then I put on a little backpack because I really like backpacks. And it's a travelers backpacking. So I was like and I'm wearing jeans and that's fine. I just need a new shirt preferably gray that decide. That's why he says you're wearing a gracious guys like a yellow stripe sweater it was not cute and I did not like it The that's what I'm wearing not the regular editor. Because that's a little bit like that's not quite as greatest advance editor. Rican actually pick batteries and stuff but like as soon as I got that I I made a black sleeveless t shirt and I use like the color of the characters skin so that I could make it look like it was cut up like. Oh that's great leaves because in real life when I get a black T. shirt I even now as old person. I'm like cutting off the sleeves punk rock so I need to do that because i. That's the only thing I I really don't like about my My little life on animal crossing is my shirt my My character started the game wearing a short sleeved. Blue Hawaiian prints shirt like button-down shirt and Khakis and Red Slip on vans And I felt like I just started game dresses. Just I was GONNA say you adjust India But now my my goal every day when I go in now that I have the able sisters shop which is the clothing shop in an animal crossing the build eventually I go into the fitting room and pretty much by every color of everything that I see myself wearing at any point that I like even just a little bit so that now I just have the most expensive wardrobe in my house. I can just go in. Open it up. It's like I have millions of option shop yet but the second time that I got an able sister with the little the little town square setup a little booth I felt like she came. And she's like here's the thing. I heard. You were queer because check it. She had a flannel like a green and black flag on something. That was just like a like a laboring. Sure it's like a like a tan up like a little. You know little hat like a little Yeah I was GONNA say Toboggan. We've learned that weird. We say that no one actually says a beanie a glasses like a new color of of the tennis shoe. And I'm like Oh thank you. Thank you for all of this. Yeah I Does that make you worry? How does animal crossing? No how do you know so much crossing? And where's my flannel animal crossing? I need a flannel I. I'll give you flame. Yeah I finally got a wind which lets you just design multiple outfits and switch into them very quickly and you can name them. Whatever you want and the first one I made was outfit. I had been wearing most frequently that I just named by like bi because it is my light acid. Wash Denim jacket my dark acid wash jeans and my read. Basically Doc marten boots that are called work boots my little crocheted messenger bag my short Toboggan beanie and glasses. That's my outfit. Thank you causing the first ever help that. I had it one. One thing that I have learned is because I live on the island with Charlie and Justin. I have this like great side mission for my character which is fine. Thanks to Delight Charlie Ya. I also do that a lot so this has been very fun. Like 'cause Justin one of the first things I did. I got a recipe for peach umbrella and so I went and used a bunch of peaches to make a peach umbrella and Jackson was like you have like no bells. Why did you not sell those? Those aren't native to our island. You could have sold them for like a lot of bells and I was like but I the patient Rela Look at Charlie Love Charlie eleven but I found frilly knee knee high sock. She loves knee socks and so I got her frilly knee socks and I left an Easter basket. I love. That's that's my favorite part about animal crossing as I can like find outfits or make things or like stuff in the store that I can like leave out front of Charlie's house and then she leaves her house every morning and go look. I found a pink fairy dresses. What it was called a my able sisters and I immediately bought it and then just send it to justice and said please deliver this to Charlie immediately. She you know she does the same though. Justin the other day. She was playing and he had commented that he liked one of the pairs of shoes. Kicks was selling and the next day. They were sitting out front of his house. Charlie had gone and bought the shoes that he wanted and left him out front of myself crossing neighbor. But I mean all this to say I think we spent the entire up so just talking about our various animals in their crossings It's it's just a relaxing game. I think even not during a global pandemic. It's just this whole world where nothing bad really happens. I think the worst thing that happens. Is You get stung by a bee? But then you can just take some medicine and your soul and I goes away And it's just peaceful and relaxing and it happens in real time which a lot of people find frustrating but. I find nice because it's just like I got so much time to just do whatever I want with my whole day. It's real time real world. I can just pretend this is my real world because it matches my real world time and you can just live in one room that has a radiator espresso machine and a punching bag or can I me three rooms. I have my my bedroom my kitchen room and my my living room got got all my furniture's in deems X. is the first time I've played an animal crossing game and you know I've I haven't in recent years been as much video gaming but in the past I liked you know the kind of games I played. Were always like survival horror at like you know. Action Games like Rpg's I never really would have. I don't think I ever have been drawn to something like this. Because usually this my hate and games like I hate grinding just having to do the thing to get whatever money your experience do it but I don't love it and specifically I hate fishing McKenna. I don't know I've had some bad experiences. Final Fantasy fifteen. Yeah Yes yes feed a cat and I'm like never again boy The Zelda fishing mechanic was rough. It's very stressful like this. But this fishy mechanic is just so peaceful. Yeah it was really after the after the first week of the you know like everything closing down and everybody losing their jobs. I kind of hit a point in like being sad and depressed like I wasn't cleaning up after myself. My house was gross. I couldn't do anything I couldn't be productive and I was like well. I guess I'm going to get back into gaming because I get to get out of bed and somehow like giving the game and like making space in like you know getting getting my little character out of bed and like fixing their hair and getting them close. I'm like these are things I like. I I like these feelings of accomplishing things. I need to animal crossing my life in the real world for a day. Yeah actually in a weird way helped me then like get out of bed. I'm going to clean my space. You know like I said I hung some shelves and like spent time like designing what went on them. I like put clothes on. Set my hair just because like I gotta be like very needed spot in my life. I'm very appreciative to wear this game. You like accomplishing thing and like having an aesthetic space. That's clean. You could do this in the real world. I did you animal crossing dear life. Well that's yeah Well if you need the recipe peach umbrella have I have. I have a cherry blossom umbrella. O- probably would love that. I only have the wand I got I got a lot of it. I don't know if you have any cherry blossoms left but if you have pedals I've got I've got the ability to do stuff with them. I do I only have ten six. I do. We could make stuff what can make some stuff Very quickly before we go. What is everyone's favorite animal crossing villager on their island quilts quilt? I was worried he was going to be a little little hipster jerk. Bird this cool. Yeah let me call scenario. That's like that's hard. I mean I love hamlet and a love Sherry I and soccer. I love soccer. I love that. He's he loves soccer by Lake but then I also have norma. She's the couch. She loves to read. Oh who's the stylish bunny I? It's all I walked around the island at night and give them all coconuts before they go to bed. That's very goodnight. Here's your coconut bringing your coconut at midnight. Okay that says you do you do that. 'cause that's probably standard in Brooklyn right coconut tonight pick. I loved the mole. I maybe I'm closest to my first two. Because they were my initial minus. But I love Tom New presence. I wish I'd give him something other than money. What about you early? That's the hasn't always will be my favorite She's a little a little sheep and she's just she's the sweetest the best and she moved down to Maryland. I was so happy because she's always been my favorite in the next day she had fleas. And then the next day she had a cold and it was just like the saddest two days of my game where. I had to catch fleas off and then bring her medicine to fix her cold but now she's okay. Now we're best friends did not realize that you had to catch the fleas. Hamlet had please I am Ireland thinking like. Oh this'll work right and he just looked at me like thanks okay. I do this but I was trying to catch a butterfly. It's the cutest thing he runs laps.

"Yes I yes. I had a tiny stuffed plus she of one of the animal crossing villagers. And I'm blanking on a bunny when it was. It was a bunny that was wearing new bunny in a plaid applied dress I'm forgetting which villager it was. It was an animal crossing villager. Charlie saw it when she was much smaller and loved it and named it. Plaid becky but it was an animal crossing village. That was her best friend for a long time was plaid. Becky great name. Yeah Yeah But I mean animal crossing has always been the same as far as I can remember. It has always been you live on this island or this small town or small city or whatever everyone else is talking animal and Tom Nook either you work for him to pay off your money or you buy like he take out a loan and you pay off your house like he's always in charge of your finances. You always owe him money. Always oh him money eternally which is bells. Yeah but that's what not always as it's always been you dig up fossils tournament two brothers and then you catch fish and catch bugs and you sell them and are there are people out there. Do you think and I. I assume neither of you do this. But who don't check with bladders. Who is the OWL. Who runs the museum in case you? Don't play about the fossils before you sell them because because the the thing with the fossil's is like you can take them to the museum and if they don't have them they'll just take him as a donation. We don't get anything for him like you did. The work of finding the fossil and bringing into bladders. And he's like thanks for this and then you leave or you can sell them. And they're worth a decent number of bills typically. I always take them to Blatter's I now. If he already has them. I seldom but if he doesn't have on my donate them. I think there's a distinct personality difference between animal crossing players who just sell every bug fish bugging fish catch in fossil. They dig up and those who donate the first of every kind. I to the museum and then sell the others because I am one who will donate the first of every fossil or of every bug or fish but then I will sell the rest but I think our father which I did get both our parents playing this game a lot I think he will just sell everything. I'm pretty sure he sells everything. So there's two different kinds of people. I always donate the first of of everyone but sometimes I do when I find something rare. I go just to torture myself and see how many bells I could get for it and that that'd be great that's fifteen thousand dollars for that big fish okay. I'm GonNa go to the museum. Yeah I do think about that a lot. It's a rare bug but like this is GonNa hate this and I get it but I've gotta bring it. Yeah I do. Think in the bug round the Tarantula representation in this game is not fair because I have been bitten by Tarantulas and they like attacked me and I wasn't even trying to catch him attack me. Yeah that's not fair. That's not what TARANTULAS DO I. When I was younger I had a pretty bad or active. I've gotten much much better with that. With actual spiders. I now like them but the way that the way that you interact with the churches of this game brings back old fears. And I can't do I get so scared when I'm like. Oh No not not going on that side of the island until that tarantula disappears. Because I can't handbill I've got two so far and that was that was. That was fun. I don't like it. I see people like tons of them. And you know that's their investment banks just all tarantula. Oh no I I have one. It appears innate skill that I was born with in my life and apparently it is catching animal crossing tarantulas because I have yet to be bitten by one and I actually took a mystery island tour the other night at like midnight. It took me to transfer island which is just. There's nothing else. They are accepted just sponsor a bunch of translators. Because they're having its Taylor look so terrified right now so I went with empty pockets and just filled up all my pockets with Tarantulas. Came back and sold them and I made tons of money. Tarantulas WORTH A lot. I think you sell each one for eight thousand bells. So Yeah I had like twenty off. Those Dodos ever took me to Tarantula Island. We'll get right. Nope give me my ticket back next island Orville please island. Oh my God. I didn't even know like the first time I was just walking by a tarantula attacked me and that seemed mean and so then the next time. I saw Tarantula I was like well gotta get Monette out. I guess I should try to catch that Guy But I didn't know there was a special procedure so then I there is. I've got but I I wasn't even really attempting like I got my net out and that was all she wrote. That was about it I'd still takes me a minute to get my tools out. Yeah you know. Have your little touring got a toll ring? It's so I find the joystick cumbersome landing on the wrong tool and then I accidentally hit the wrong button is pull out a watering chances tranches. It's usually the ladder. I'm like I I constantly am trying to do something and I am holding a ladder instead of whatever and I'm like why am I holding the ladder I My favorite my favorite trick has been. I recently got a wand for the first time and I got it on Bunny Day and on Bunny Day. I was wearing my outfit to to please the bunny. I thought he would enjoy it. If I was wearing my egg outfit like all my villagers he doesn't care he doesn't care But I gotta warn that day so I filled up on my little wind outfits. I changed my outfit. But apparently there doesn't count changing. Your clothes just counts as like putting clothes over your clothes so before you can like go in a fitting room at the able sisters or anything you have to take off the wand so now whenever I need to go into the fashion store to buy new clothes I have to stay out. Front women will wind and now my egg outfit is always under that. I know this is always my outfit. I did all of the I did all the bunny things. I am pleased the bunny and then as soon as bunny day was over. I sold everything I I know. You like points for having it having a weird egg room but I was like no. I'm selling everything every bit of this. Bunny still yeah. Our Dad got a happy home. Whatever rating than I did because he has an entire bunny house and they're like Oh. Your House is all one theme and it's all bunny stuff you're slick the highest score you can get. I was saying I put so much work into my decoration. So I live on Epcot to with Justin and Charlie island name our little houses all in a row and Charlie. I love her house because first of all to once you go inside. It's really hard to walk around in and inside it because she has put dolls all over the place. Oh no she has like like dolls strategically place so there's only one path that you can get through the room And things like she has like a snow cone maker and things like that in a room but Outside of her house she has like a giant wall of fish tanks because she likes all of her fish and she did keep them all in her house but she filled her entire house with fish tanks and so then Justin convinced her to move him outside so like inbetween. Charlie's house and my house isn't it filters and she won't sell them there her pets. Oh Charlie do you all have pets? I have a pet. You'll have pets in animal crossing Know what is your pet. I kept one of my fish. I kept the Dory Fish. Wait you know what now. I have a goldfish. I kept the Dory fish and it's on my nightstand right next to my bed and turn it on turn. It's fish tank light on it. Nice Nice see I I will have. I haven't saved in a yet because I wanted to wait until I had a room. That aesthetically could include right. I just got. I just made the payment. Or just a commissioned my third room and so that's GonNa be my science room my science and crafts in that room. I think was fit a fish tank bug tag so then I will now have a pet. You will be pleased to know the reason I kept a Goldfish is because when you place a Goldfish. It does not place in a regular fish. Tank it places in a little bowl that is like blue and white China like plants in it and like Moss on top and you see little goldfish swimming around so I kept it for that reason because it is various technically please. That's good to know because I got excited when I when I caught my second. Koi Fish so the cool. I'm GONNA keep this. I had a cherry going for a while. And I'm like this is going to go in that room it'll make sense and then I put it there and it was a big ugly tank like. Yeah this is. This is not aesthetic. Go Away Fast. Bad Eric We should try to explain why this game is so important to everyone right now But before we do that. Let's check the group message. Who Do we have on the group message today? Well this week. I'm a group message. I want to tell you all about story worth right now. It can be Challenging to stay in touch with your well I guess it's not because we live in twenty twenty and there are lots of ways of modes of communication but it requires Remembering to check in with people check on people and for your own sake. Check in with people Even if you can't visit him in person. There's so many like for instance. Maybe she could do a podcast. That's a great way to check in with your family that you can't see in person high Taylor but you can connect with your loved ones in a whole new way. Not just phones and computers and all your high tech gadgets but with a story worth it's a great way to learn family history and all kinds of stories that Maybe you've never heard before 'cause you just you didn't know to ask you didn't think to ask and your loved one didn't necessarily think to tell you until story worth prompted them with the right question and then all of a sudden you learn a whole new thing about somebody that you loved and already knew so well That you never heard before so every week story worth will email your family member different story. Prompt all different kinds of questions. Like what have been some of your life's greatest surprises. Or what's one of the riskiest things you've ever done All kinds of neat thought provoking questions. That will get them to tell you. A story that Maybe they never never really thought. Oh Hey that might be something they'd be interested. In and after a year story worth will compile every answer question photo you choose to include into a beautiful keepsake book and it shipped for free so you can Keep one of these books and treasure it. I think it's a really neat idea. They used to always have books like this. I feel like that you could do like pen and paper versions of But this is is so much. This is such a better way to do it. Because you get this email you get this prompt you just answer the question and don't worry about compiling or keeping it anywhere because story worth is doing it for you then you can get it at the end of the year so if our listeners.

Yeah I've been trying to find out more about that game because it's got that Retro Vibe and I love it seems like Miley. Yeah totally it. It definitely has got the retro vibe and just kind of like the general premises you're playing all kinds of different styles of games that you would play in kind of like a retro arcade so It's almost like a bunch of different games in one game and it plays a lot of homage to like older Salad Games. If you like you know kind of like the runner slash style games or Like top down shooter. Games has all that in there And it's really fun to just kind of like play all those different things kind of like back to back to back in it. All kind of connects to like the story that's going on behind it so And and it's a real kind of chill experience you know it's not anything that's like super Super Hardcore or anything like that so Even though some parts can get a little difficult. It's still really fun. So and it's super affordable so Yeah just been playing that And you know I'm always playing super smash. How many hours to now. Seven hundred fifty our awesome. Wow it's one of those games. It's always my rotation but yeah I definitely recommend that game. It's really fun cool while I. I recently got a chance to play vitamin connection. Which is the new game from way? Forward who people may know Are the developers behind the shiny games in river city girls which came out not too long ago and I really enjoyed and I had no idea what vitamin connection was and it kind of came out of nowhere on me but I knew it was way for it so I had to check it out? And it's a game you can play with one or two players. It really shines with two players though in it. Kind of reminds me of snippers clips in a way because Two people really have to work together and you each doing slightly different things. So the premise. Is that your co piloting this ship? That's kind of shaped and colored to a lot like a joy time controller. And you kind of our our our tiny and you get kind of You go inside of like people who are sick and you'll see like your bloodstream. Hiding the germs. And so what will happen is? Since you're both CO piloting. The ship one person will be like moving the ship up down left right and then player two will be like tilting. The ship horizontal or diagonal and together. You're trying to work. You know. Get past obstacles. You know player one will actually hit the button to activate the vitamin BEAN. Which is how you blast away some of those germs but player two has to actually aim the beam. And then they have these other items. You get like kind of a claw grappling hook type thing that you both kind of have a role in controlling so as you can imagine as you're playing this and especially as the game gets a little tricky you're constantly kind of like shouting at each other and laughing at the same time and just trying to you know like no no good this way. Go that way and And it's it. It was just a lot of fun so had a lot of fun playing that one. It also has a really kind of trippy. Dancy kind of Japanese infused style to it with some really fun music so That carries over to the visuals as well. So it's very The game has a very kind of unique look and feel to it. That's just really interesting. So if you like those types of games especially I mean again you can play single player but if you like this types of two player games where you're kind of working together but you're kind of Combating each other a little bit too. Then I think you should check it out to pick that one up. Yeah Yeah Cool right will. Next UP IS WARP zone. This is the quiz. We have every episode where we games that came out ten twenty and thirty years ago and of course this month. We're going to be guessing games that came out during the month of February. So you guys ready ready. Oh that sounds like a resounding yes. I'm ready all right so ten years ago. This is in February of two thousand ten. The clues are Sega published a racing game for we an entity s that put the player in cars bikes and hovercrafts and included superstar care characters plus cult favorite characters. Like Alex Kidd. Billy Hatcher and Rojo. Sukey any guesses as to what this game is. This is sonic authorities. Yeah yeah that's right. It is tonic and Sega. All stars racing also. Yeah Nice Dr Welby said Rio Sukey. I knew immediately drive that forklift. All right the next one is twenty years ago this would be in February of two thousand This is an intendo develop game. Nintendo developed a racing game for Nintendo sixty four that brought a legendary Namco series to an intendo system for the first time complete with new and classic racetracks in the series signature. Arcade style drift mechanics. Any guesses to what this could be a classic NAM. Kher racing series appearing on in sixty four might even have sixty four in the title. It's not not Ridge Racer. It is sixty four. You worked it out all right. The final one the final question and this would of course be thirty years ago in February of one thousand nine hundred ninety even alive yet. Anthony in one thousand nine. I was but not at this point in nineteen months later all right so a couple months before anthony was born. Nintendo developed a game for any S. Were you hop like a frog swung your tail and stomped around in a shoe while fighting seven one wielding Weirdos to save seven kings? Any guesses feel like this should be required knowledge for Super Mario Brothers three. That's it exactly premiered. By this three the couple came up here. So is is first of all. It's crazy for me to think that Super Mario Brothers threes now thirty years old and then crazy to think that just a year after that. Nineteen ninety-one Super. Mario World came out. Yeah of course. Super Mario Brothers three originally came out in Japan a little bit earlier than here but still that was. That was a great back to back year if you were playing Mario Games here in the US. Yeah Yeah so say like I was not even a baby at that point but that was one of the first Games I've ever played and it's still hold on to this day. Great Game. Nice cool. Well that's it. I think as a group I think we got through three of those nice job hundred fifteen.

"crossing new horizons" Discussed on Nintendo Power Podcast

"All of them But animal crossing is one of those series where suddenly everyone in my extended family or aware of it. And they're big fan so my sister and my niece and my both my kids are all really eagerly awaiting this game and we're all planning to create our own Islands in then go With our unintended switch systems and then go visit each other and and see what we can do. So there's GonNa be a lot of fun. We have as a family around this game and I get to kind of share my love Nintendo with everybody else which is really cool like we really felt that while out. Sorry thing those awesome designs that were that. Were all playing on making excited to see what you guys made. It'd it'd be cool to see kind of like a little bit of bragging rights maybe to see if he's got the coolest stuff so in Khorasan earlier i. I watched some reaction videos direct last night. I kept bike for best supporting to the part. Where we unveiled the Tara forming and Just watching directions for those specific part. Those seemed like one of the segments that made jaws drop the most yesterday yet. Cool see what's reactions it is. It's a huge game changer. Because and I don't know maybe other people had been one that feature but I had it an immune occurred to me and then when I saw it of course. Of course you'd have to have that in this new version of the game. It's a perfect idea. Yeah and I don't think I mentioned but The museum that I'm really excited about that. Too Yeah Just because it looks amazing like you know it's such a nice complement to your custom island to have dislike really nice kind of fancy looking museum and I made. It just looks amazing. I'm you retire reactions. I mean even on social media. Everybody is like wow. That looks pretty ridiculous. They really went all out this time with like the area with the shark tank and things like that that they saw on the in the Nintendo direct Really Gorgeous to look at. Oh yeah now one of the great things about this games that there's just so much to do and you can approach it in like so many different ways so don't Wanna ask each if you want your focus will be when you start playing like You know where you put everything into upgrading your house or maybe collecting furniture or or what? Sa- Kristen how do you plan to start things off? I'm definitely more goal. Enter like oriented. So I plan on hitting the NOOK. Mileage achievements real hard and getting as many miles as I can as quick as I can. So that I can unlock additional features. That are available as the rewards for that and also. I really want Isabel. And so that's GONNA be my my other goal is getting is about on my island as fast as I can right because you have to upgrade that one location enough time to where it. It's finally in the bigger form that Isabelle will appear right. The resident services biltrite services. Everybody everybody wants his bill Scrupulous boss yeah so anthony. What about you? What's your focus going to be? Well I gotTa have a stylish stylish place right so I'm going to. I'm going to focus on getting my furniture. Right crafting all those things that just make it a really pleasant destination getting ready for visitors. Yeah you know I I have to please the people that are coming to my island so and I want to bring new people into my island. So yeah that's what I'm GONNA do. I'M GONNA focus on getting that stuff Crafting those things so that I can have like something. That looks really good. Meanwhile you know I'm definitely going to do a lot of things in the background. But that's kind of like my goal. There I focus. Yeah Bill how about you so yeah? Of course I have significant familial family obligations for this game so normally I would probably spend the first couple of hours With with my dad Setting him up on his island My wife setting her up in her island some in laws nephews and nieces. But I'm going to be a game. Developers Conference When Animal Crossing New Horizons launches? So I have strategically Preordered some copies to be sent to key family members and I'm going to help each other out But my own personal island Honestly I might spend the first two hours on the beach. You know we've been so up to our eyeballs in development and it's SORTA rush rush rush. Go go go and and You know you experience a lot of the game at a breakneck pace trying to lock everything as quickly as you can with the tools available to you So I want to play the game at the intended base. I WANNA experience my island at its. It's intended pace and I I just going to relax and enjoy the I. I Say I'M GONNA relax her couple hours. I might just walk on the beach and listen to sales of my footsteps on the stand and invade. There's just but in reality I'll probably go after those Mileage Those nook miles pretty pretty hard pretty fast To unlock some of the the key features early on down the beach might get in a little fishing. A there's some seashells down there that you could pick Just accidentally get some look miles. Yeah -CATION activities relaxing miles with my experience With Syria so far is a very audible experience for me like sometimes I'll even listen to just animal crossing music from past Games and and that's one of the most enjoyable parts I feel like so In a similar way yeah. I think I'm probably going to spend some time. Just kinda relaxing and enjoying that hanging out with some of the newcomers island. Of course I noticed that with just the Nintendo direct that normally when you when you watch game trailers or or you know videos with with game plan things like that you know usually has kind of an exciting you know pumping soundtrack animal crossing slows way down and puts you right in that head space and just gets you in the mood to just take it easy which is great. Yeah at the sound. The sound effects in the scheme are really good. I mean say the beach because I love the sound of my footsteps in the sand It's just so relaxing. Almost got that. Am to play phones on absolutely played soccer game with headphones. Sit For me when I play Games in general. I'm always pretty much a big collector. Like if I'm playing a game I really enjoy. I always try to like one hundred percent now. I think that's probably pretty impossible at least for me in in in an animal crossing game but I think early on. I'm going to set up pretty traditional goals for myself upgrading. My House Quickly collecting all the core tools collecting fishing bugs anywhere. There's something that I can kind of fill out a collection. I think I'm just GONNA START TACKLING. That and the miles is perfect for that too. So yeah. I'm just going to start diving in and trying to do as much as I can. And it's going to be hard to pace myself because this is also kind of game. That's really fun to just you know not necessarily marathon on but just keep coming back to a regular pace but I know for the for the first week probably. I'm just going to be spending as much time as I can. Spare on the island. It's going to be great. Have to make some regular visits to Chris's museum then really get attraction. I guess yeah if I can just keep myself from from selling those items for the bells are now. We also asked some fans online to tell us how they plan to get started in the game. And I'm going to share some of what they said in the segment we call players pulse. First up is Maggie and Maggie says. I love to stock the museum with fossils fish bugs etc and the old games. I would take the first of each species that are caught to the museum including fossils. This also helps me make bells and pay off housing things since the museum stuff. Sounds like it might be a later addition focus on making my tent a house and then on furniture so a lot of what we were talking about. We see them in magazines in sync. You know she wants that museum. Yeah yeah she wants the good looking stuff be able to marvel at all her collections. I good answer. Yeah and then next step is Dave who says. I'll probably start with furniture and a house before I worked my way up to the full on Pine Forest Wilderness retreat. I always wanted to make an animal crossing new leaf. This might end up being the first animal crossing game. I really get deep into and I can't wait because my fiancee has been a super fan for years and I feel like I'll finally get to really enjoy it with her. Sounds Great. We were talking about to family. Yeah Yeah Yeah definitely. It's like a really good relationship activity. Yeah yeah taking a vacation together also one of those games that because we know that you know we share this with our family and our friends and we know other people are sharing it with their family and friends. We feel very deeply about that. When we're writing and working on the text like how is this going to make people feel is going to make them laugh? Is this Joe. Funny enough for Animal. Crossing or Kristen's dad like this joke. So I think that's right. There just pinned up on the wall. That's the goal. I mean good criteria. 'cause I mean from what I've seen you know I'm always entertained by just the dial in the game so yeah definitely one of my favorite parts. These games have a very very strong Charm to them. You know very consistent kind of identity which is great next up from beyond that she says the first thing I will focus on is the sweet character customization because I can finally play as a character that looks like me without having to wait for my character to Tan so grateful for the skin customisations also completing the museum. I'm so excited so that's cool. That people have more options now to really you saw that in the Nintendo direct. There are a lot more different types from whether it be closed or hair types or skin tone just a lot more options for people. Yeah that's great. I'm living these answers. It's good yeah. These people are paying attention. That's really good because in a sense you know sometimes you wanNA play to kind of get away and have different experience than your you know whatever you do in your life but you also want it to kind of resemble that so yeah. It's like a nice way to be able to do customize even more Next up brody says I personally want to start off by working on my decorating skills. I haven't been great with properly pairing up furniture and organizing it correctly but with the ability to now lay items outside. I really want to work on improving that skill from the start. Yes he can give your house. Curb appeal now. Yeah I think I think that was an eye opener Back in the was the three video when we first showed items being placed in yards and people lost their minds about that. I think that was really cool. You can you can make a section of the island all your own T. total is it absolutely and then lastly we have Lewis who probably has the best approach planned out in my opinion very similar to yours. Bill I think who my focus will be on relaxing and kicking back joining it. Naturally there you go. Good answer don't have added out just go with the flow all about just kicking back enjoying it. That's right now before we move on from animal crossing horizons. I just want to really quickly let the listeners. Know that if you stick around until the end of the episode we're going to have a music track from the game so you can listen to it. Sit back closure is and start dreaming about Your Own Island Getaway. Now we're GONNA move onto pros picks and as usual. This is where we talk about games that we've been enjoying lately. I'm Kristen. Let's start with you this time. What have you been enjoying lately? I've been playing a of blossom tale. Oh Yeah it's just a really sweet indie game top down action. Rpg for me We did the year in review on the NINTENDO DOT COM website.

"My name is Chris late in joining me today are bill. Hutchins from Nintendo treehouse high bill and Kristin Copeland also from Nintendo treehouse. Kristen and longtime friend of the show Anthony Foster from the social media team and Intendo of America. Welcome back hey good to be back are now bill and Christen. You've been hard at work. Localizing Animal Crossing New Horizons which comes out and just a few weeks on March twentieth and I want to know. Are you dreaming animals yet? Yeah very much so I. I don't know about animals but I definitely see like Isabel sitting at that desk and giving me the updates. That's that's something that I definitely like feel strongly Germany. That's great at Obviously you guys know this game inside and out Anthony. What's your experience been like with the Animal Crossing series? Yes so I'm kind of I guess you would say new to the series. I you know I didn't grow up playing it super actively A lot of people I know But I'm very excited to play this game on switch Obviously I'll watch a direct super excited. I'm a big Fan of just that style of game in general This is really just kind of like you know. Simulating life so yeah. I'm super excited. I mean I understand. There's all these new additions changes and things like that but Yeah I don't know I'm just I can't wait to get in there. Yeah I mean not only do you have all of the new editions and new features but even the stuff that's kind of the core elements that have made all the animal crossing game animal? Crossing Games are just still so appealing and the idea that you can play it at home or take it on the go into switch. I think really works. Great for this series. Because you know we've had installments in the past have been for home consoles and then Equally you've had games that have been very popular on dedicated handhelds so seems like the best of both worlds and for myself you know. I put a lot of time into the first animal crossing game back on. Nintendo Gamecube probably headed for one hundred hours that one and then I played animal crossing nearly unattended three for quite a bit and the other games that kind of dabbled in. But it's been awhile since I've played an animal crossing games so I'm really feeling it right now as the game's about to come out that I'm really excited to get back into the flow of it. So yeah let's dive in and talk about animal crossing horizons first of all As you mentioned we had the Nintendo directory which was all about the game. It kind of recap some of the features we already knew about introduce brand new. Ones like for example crafting items The ability to reshape the Ireland Ireland tourist the nook Mileage Program Party play the real world. Nick linked smartphone APP all these free updates and seasonal guests and lots more so i. I'd like to start with you. Which feature has you the most interested? Well I think the nook mileage program is going to be key for me. The idea of Sort of almost monetize your achievements. I think is pretty brilliant You know so. You're going to get you're gonNA earn a currency for Just doing the stuff. You'd you'd normally do On across me. But now you're getting. You're getting paid to do that. And then you can spend that currency on on some cool gear and upgrades for your character So I I'm not just looking forward to it because of the the upgrades in the gear. But it's they're SORTA like potato chips. You can't just start with one and stop you know it's very it's very compelling to keep doing these These tasks that gets you the the miles I. I try to resist but every time I opened the game I find myself kind of getting distracted by quest for more miles. Do One more won't take me that long. Yeah Yeah L. Any Fish I can get that Cohi- kind of puts a little stamp down so you really feel like achieve something. Yeah and I think you know as much as the game is really about finding your own way and kind of just enjoying it at your own pace. The Traditional Video Gamer in me loves having that guidance. Sometimes where you know. There's like a checklist that I can kind of aspire to kind of complete. Yeah so I think that's a great combination like is there if you really want to I mean like you said just playing the game actually going to end up getting a lot of miles and getting the rewards but you can really aggressively go after those if you want more and just kind of you know. They're like a nice little extra pleasant gift whenever they happen to occur. Kristen what about you? What are you looking forward to the most? I'm looking forward to custom designs We showed off the custom design APP within a animal crossing new horizons. And that can add your designs there but that also for all of the designs that you've made on animal crossing newly for animal crossing happy home designer. They're not just you can take them with you and import them into animal crossing new horizons. And I know I have a lot a lot of designs that I've saved on my three. Ds that I want to take over and still use and the current game I'm just also really excited to see what other people make for the custom designs and be able to kind of borrow them if they've made them available online. Yeah totally looking forward to what other people. Yeah I'm sure there's GonNa be some really talented artists out there. That's going to have some great stuff to share. And I don't know that I'm necessarily one of those talented artists but in past Games. I've really loved that ability to go any kind of drug. Your own Pixel art whether you're putting it on clothing or a flag and so I'm really looking forward to doing that. Here then attended a wreck. They had some great little throw pillows. Someone had put an a couch that were decorated decorated with a custom pixel palm tree design that I found pretty inspiring because it does fit the theme of the game so well I saw a lot of people excited yesterday about putting your own custom design on the mud cop and people really want to make their own Mug Cup now so I'm excited to see pictures of those. You've got to have your own custom. Of course Anthony. What about you? What really popped off to you out of that tinder direct. So it's interesting for me because it's like you know they're new features but again you know. I'm I'm kind of new myself so They're all they're all new. Essentially I did. I did play a little new leaf but still it's It's new for me but The ability to reshape the island and construct things. I thought that was really cool Kind of just looking at what people were saying people were pretty excited like you could like you know like a waterfall or something. Cool like that. Just do all kinds of cool things with the different areas of your island so that just opens up like a window like all kinds of windows for how you want to decorate your your island so yeah. I'm really excited for that. Especially what everybody else has said so. Yeah it's really satisfying to build the cliffs or take down the cliffs or build your own river So we've spent a lot of time entry house playing around with that no more barriers. You can do it everyone. We yeah when we first came across Some of these customization features many months ago. We just looked at each other. Like wow can't wait to see what the what the Internet does with it. Yeah that's definitely one of those things it's one it's like an Internet thing where you don't know what you can build until you see what other people can create exactly and it just I. It's like never ending ideas. I'm sure I'll have an idea and then I'll see somebody else's idea and then you know I'll be inspired and go back and play some more. Yeah they're absolutely seems to be a lot more room for creativity this time around because when used to visit another player's island in some games you know there. There was only so much that the island could look different is usually the same locations kind of you know shaped a little bit differently in some people might have have kind of unlocked. Different places that other people wouldn't have but if you really wanted to see someone's full creativity on display. You would go inside of House and that's where you would see how they decorated with the wallpaper in the furniture combinations and of course that's still a big part of the new game but now at the same time you can kind of decorate the space around your house. You can have those multilevel kind of like stairs going up to a higher elevation when you've got the waterfall like you said so. It seems like the Islands. You're just going to be a lot more personalized this time. So I think when you do You know go to visit a friend's island or go on the island tour in visit Aranda Mile and they'll just be so many the places. We're really seem a lot different. I think which at a lot of variety and that's actually aspect that caught my attention the most and the Nintendo direct where the island tours this ability to basically go to a randomized island and find new items and new creatures. And that's something I used to. Kinda do In the past game where you would take a boat out to an island I think and that was a way to kind of get some off season fruit if I remember correctly or a good way to kind of Kind of Build up some things to get a lot of bells as well so I just know. I'm going to be going on a lot of these island tours and just seeing what I can grab and bring back to my own island. My wife is also really excited for the game. And so we're planning on playing a lot together and Yeah that'll be interesting to see kind of like you know we're right next to each other. We have to totally different islands and different ideas and styles so the I'm pretty excited for that. Yeah I'm excited to see what my dad does. What his game. He is a hardcore animal crossing fan and I know that he plays it in a way. That's much different than the way I play it. So I'm excited for him to get his hands on it. Build up his island and then be able to play together and like check out what he's done with various Options that we have this. I want to hear the stories. Yeah that's something I really love about this series is obviously you know. I being such a big fan of Nintendo Games in general. I'm always kind of up to speed on on the new games coming out and playing playing pretty much..

I feel like I feel you. Could you could get one set of those. I think you might. I don't think you'll ever get the cardboard wants the expensive like I'm not going to pay like crazy. Money for joy con Brent Larson or not not. I'm going to create the artificial barrier that has to be retail of hill. Make friends with someone who has them and then become well Phantom. It'll be able. You can't get the monster hunter one unless you're GONNA pay thousands of dollars. People are paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for Nintendo playstation. I was just going to say but I did hear that. You are in the running to buy the Nintendo playstation. I would've thought it for the office. Flop to five grand the up to five grand and it went over that in like six minutes speaking five hours pair speaking of office purchases. Have you heard about the life size married that the pokemon center is put out no because it is a life size sheep? This big. No the electric sheep. It's five hundred dollars and we need it. I'm just putting that out there into the other. We can move on now all right size lifestyle sheep. I'm into it because we have two dark. Souls we have a Gabrielson Goule. We have Lara Croft. Crofts who large loss. I known intent on Intendo Statue. It's forty inches long and two feet tall best too big for a sheep. It's life sheep on. We have to sell a lot of t-shirts to be able to. I also think that if we're going to get an Nintendo Statue. We should get married. The sheep one of the most rushing nintendo characters. All thank you. Thank you can come and see our love for Nintendo by seeing a life size. Yeah they come in. They're like I love to love Wallace. Yeah Star of games as the POK Mon. Some one of the guys it's stuffed animal and you can pat it okay. It'll make you happy. Not by one of the one of getting worse proposition. Just well one of one of the reviews said if you've never thought money could buy you happiness then. You haven't had the Marie because it is a good friend and a good shape anyway. Cooking Mama Cook Star comes out in October Cook. Even on the cooks comes out in March. It's coming with a on the switch with a vegetarian mode which is new to the series. Tom Tom Marks very excited about both both revelations. There I saw a rainbow grilled. Cheese is one of the. I fell out of the out of out of that series when Momma started gardening and doing all sorts of other stuff. I always liked cooking. Mama I did too. Yeah I think it's like not better their Mama. I don't think you can learn about cooking. No no certainly not about steering stuff. Yeah Yeah there is like very basic stuff. It's like okay. Well that's what burned onions. Look like but I think it's cool. I think it's cool that you could potentially use the joy con accelerometer for like shopping or like they have that many and smart Mario Party where the Meat Hugh with the League like photo realistic. Yeah you're just. My love are the grass so good but he was so hungry when they made that I want lunch. The witcher three on the switch also got a three point. Six update improves its graphics. Just a little bit. So who's got that? Check it out. Tina see I never. I never bought that on the switch because I love the xbox version and played the crap out of it I have it on switch and I read this this I read a tweet saying like a giant update. Update is coming to this game like a month ago and then I basically just like sidelined it because I was like. Oh okay well. I'll wait for the better version of it And then apparently they deleted all information about that tweet so I thought that was just a bust and I was like I'll just play on xbox and then they just kind of out here it now so there's also there's also Some news about it cross platform with steam. Yeah that was debunked by CD product drive. They like they. I think they just put in the update in one of the articles. Said there's there are no plans for divinity. Yes yeah I think that's such a cool thing to do Next up is so. We talked about platinum's last major announcement. Which was the wonderful. One on. One remake or re master for the switch and their next major announcement will be made public figure. Twenty-seventh Infamy Tsu magazine. No idea what it is we just know when the announcements GONNA come. I bet it's been in a three. I hope that it's already commented on Bain three instead. It's going well so that count as a major announcement. No I don't think so because like look at what they did for the wonderful one. It was like such a kind of left field. Well not not just that but it was. There's more fanfare was a bigger deal. I think they were gonNA say something about being that it would be something more robust. Yeah then just like a one off again. We're still working on. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Here's what's happening with that franchise like I have this weird. Feeling that you know bayonet coming into the Nintendo fold was kind of an odd move right. Just as a kind of mismatch for Nintendo's image and everything it's a weird character to fit in the portfolio obviously nintendo button by platinum right there. No basically working very closely with Chinese conglomerate now. Also I'm I'm wondering if bail three is not going to be in everything release of that makes sense because you know like you said I think being at a two was only on we you for while right. Yeah yeah that's probably case also it could be it could potentially be. They just put out bayonet a and vanquish to pack for the tenth anniversary. They they remastered those games for playstation xbox and vanquish would be an awesome game on switch if they could port it now. That'd be a cool announcement for the seventh as well. We'll see also speak needs to sacrifice me to column his leaked and he said after the six fighters for fighters to pass to there are new plans for more deals for smash which comes surprising to me because I assume that they would keep up. The deal is very very tired and he said the same thing basically after the break right so I feel like that. We'll see what happens when we get to the end of the run and Nintendo basically said hey says smash smash will be around for a long time. We played for a long time. We need to keep it alive with new updates. And we'll see what happens right if you consider the if you consider the spread of the first fighters pack because we got our first character in early two thousand nineteen with Rana plant in the last character in January with Bislett. You know if there's an additional six fighters coming out this could carry all the way into twenty twenty one at that point. The game has been out for almost three years right. Like you know what we need and we know who who be ready for the next version of the switch like yeah. I think I would like to imagine smash ultimate is now a platform in the way that they will just continually update the same game but financially and historically that doesn't fit nintendo's business if that's the closest thing Nintendo has to an east sports contender right a game that people play advance and obviously smash is featured as events like that. It's not one of the big four East sports games. They want to keep it alive right and like if there's anything to learn from the fortnight and overwatch strategy in order to refresh the games and and kinda spark in spark interest you kind of need to have a drop right. Six is doing it too. I CAN'T PICTURE. I can even wrap it around like this game. Getting a sequel. You imagine now it wouldn't it wouldn't they don't do that not on the same console no. Eds Jam pairs former novela. Yes because done cleansing. Zachariah dropped my chairs and Buba quickly cut away doesn't work totally. Nintendo Japan announced today four legend of Zelda Link's awakening soundtrack. Oh what a roller coaster. That was. Yeah I know which is all of the new music and all the original music. It's on CD. Which is weird so. I don't I live CDs. Learning addicting depends no and so did some digging into this. It's fifty bucks. It's on Amazon Japan on play Asia. And it comes with a little book and everything. The artworks Awesome Nintendo has yet to foray into digital music. I think they don't sell their songs on itunes right. Don't put their music on spotify. This feels insane so the funny thing. I'm pretty sure you can play those. Cd's on a PS four. Yeah no I do have a CD player. It's four because I don't. I'm sure we can lend you a CD player. No I know I know I'm just saying it's like this feels like easy money for Nintendo. Probably asked three two or do they under look. They didn't do movies and amusement parks for a while and even t shirts they were not very active with that stuff. Like music is next matching. How much money they would make just by throwing up everything on spotify Capcom recently. Did it. Well you'd be surprised you don't make a ton of money. Yeah on spotify right can you? Your music has to stream. So I mean you know this you music Ashram so much before you even see a dime on spotify. I guess because it's like a fraction of a cent for every play. I guess I'm just assuming that Nintendo music is popular. But yeah I mean last year last year Capcom just out of the blue one released everyone on their soundtracks on spotify. It'd be interesting to know if how it's doing any money. The issue with with the way they did that is that some of it isn't translated. So some of the Monster Hunters soundtracks are all in Japanese characters so I ran search yet and I have no idea what any of them are. The final fantasy soundtracks. I think are the same way. Or maybe I'm thinking of the Capcom. Sl put a bunch of stuff on there. Too like blood borne soundtrack on there and I was just. I was just like walk running errands. Pushing my kid in the stroller around and like terrible beautiful out almost like I'm in a boss fight. Gosh now longer short. I hope this mismatch Chelsea Massey. Maybe the smash discography. I remember getting this like CD from mine. Intent no e came with a strategy guide to it all the time and tend to remind nintendo bonus thing a couple of years ago to that had like a sound selection.

"crossing new horizons" Discussed on Nintendo Voice Chat

"And now we're back in the past. I hope you enjoyed the future us talking about animal crossing because now we're back from past on all the cannot believe all the things they added. I know I'm so excited we got to hear about Miranda. Sanchez is hands on impressions. She's got a full preview up definitely a lot of stupid question. It's crazy to me this time around in animal crossing included cucumbers and also marijuana plants. Oh my gosh so get off our lawn with this real Gustavo. That's right but I'm excited super exciting of Gustavo. Yeah it's untitled goose game game of the year at dice it is it was. It was my like my sub-conscious same please do the transition and only word our producer. Barbara is just drafted. So Surprise. Untitled goose game one outstanding achievement for independent game an outstanding achievement character and game of the year. I dice. Yeah so for the listeners. That don't dice because it's a pretty inside baseball. Sort of deal Can you tell us a little bit? I looked at you. Because you're the elder statesmen here but like you would do what dice but I also feel like I could get it wrong. I feel like you probably know the best. What is is well. It's IT'S A it's a association of developers and dice is the event the annual event way. Everybody gets together. Celebrate seeing the street that keynotes from From you know company leaders overseen by the. As and as part of that there is this what show we live streaming on Jan every year because obviously very supportive of the cause and the Pixel always slightly different right. They're not as the not V- voted on by Gamers. They'd kind of represent that creative spirit was the development community. Were which is why. Goose game make sense as an award. I I've always. I've always kind of thought of devices like the screen actors guild awards on Video Games where it's like developers voting on the Games. They WANNA see champion. WanNa see like propped up. And in this case yeah. Goose game was a surprise winner. This year I feel like I saw a lot of people tweeting and being really impressed with the idea that that this tiny game from a very tiny development team would win dice game of the year. There are a lot of people mad to write their show. They've a lot of people who were saying. Well you know come. A three hour game wins over. You know an ad. Our experienced like death stranding and like death straining also had a lot of really creative and clever ideas right so I think it boils down to the fact. That goose game was so different and creative and really stood out as a as a unique experience and then it was made by such a tiny team. I think is why it was worth for them. Cool cool so we'll do the game. I love it yeah. It's great. I loved it. There is. There's is the contest between something that's eighty hours long three hours on you know like there's there's pixar shorts that has stuck with me longer than some entire dreamworks feature films right and so why shade thrown at DreamWorks Specifically Shrek. Yeah Yeah I'm coming from Nash. Restrict again No so no. I think it's awesome. Developers tweeted out a list of basically every dice award winner ever and just to see goose came at the bottom of it next to like all the other like AAA shooters in some gigantic open world games. There's just like untitled game. It's it's really really cool to save that I wanted to mention that. Baba's you won outstanding achievement. Game Design Mario. Kart tour one racing game of the year. Which I don't know how I I think that's the most like what so a second ago I was about to say. I don't really see why anyone would be angry. Game winning over their stuff. Mario Kart winning over other actual real legit racing games was kind of like what yeah? I don't I mean I understand it from the perspective of sort of like the simplicity of the touchscreen controls in solution that provides a car racing has been attempted on mobile for a long time. And I think in ten. Does that closest to like really get pretty damn good But that game. Otherwise was I. I would say like mostly forgettable. I think I don't know anyone who stuck with it outside of like rare few people. What's the what's the thing that got everybody into my cart multiplayer right? Yeah it doesn't to what does not do it. I think it's immolated multi-player it is. It's a slow. It's a slow year for racers for sure we didn't get like a. Forza horizon like a game that is a little bit more accessible and so with mostly Sim racers on the market. They were good some racers out. It makes sense that different experience crazy that That this particular car racing game would win to win. Crash team racing is also a phenomenal Kart. Racer maybe that's considered a re release. I don't know but like you. Winning really cool. Yeah that is really cool. Half the stuff in Iraq. Arcane is a release it wasn't but crushing reason was a nominee. But I also. Let's yeah that's the thing that happened fine but I also wanted to mention. Hey Louise mentioned three got standing. Achievement Animation Martin to got family game of the year and fire three houses one. The strategy instant category awesome. Louise mentioned I. Think about the animations in that game a lot because I feel like even twelve hours into that game. You're still seeing different. In New animations from Luigi from the ghosts like I think it's spectacular in terms of the the graphical prowess and the animation. I honestly like playing it. I could not. I could not imagine that a non the you know the INTENDO core team had made it so much attention to detail. It's so beautiful in parts and the reactions from the ghosts to the various situations are just so clever and always unexpected. Just the way cat sneaks up to you and like the way like jumps through the walls and stuff and it's so cool is a lot of really wonderful little details you know. Nintendo had like a pretty awesome year award wise. Considering they didn't really have a team out there They let a lot of stuff like ring fit and Luigi Mansion and even like link's awakening which is a port of an old old game. Boy Game Do all the talking and I thought I think it worked out now and just want to go on to some quick news before we talk about games out this week and I up is a little scoop that Mark Scott. While he was seeing persona five royal he asked about he alice. Communications Manager Ari Adventure. Close close close enough okay But anyway he asked him a special specific question about persona for the switch and they answered. You want what you want. And if you don't let us know it we're never going to be able to make it and basically it's always they said it's always important to voice your opinion and don't give up hope. Yeah I saw some other. You know I feel like when you have these preview events and when we do red carpet stuff like there are there are questions that every media outlet goes into those events within in their back pocket right like the people want to know the answers to a few definite things and I feel like this was asked by a lot of different outlets like we'll personify ever come to switch and one of the responses that I saw a firm I forget somebody at Atlas was like if you keep asking for it. Maybe someday it will happen and it was like win. Have we never not been asking like sense? Persona five was coming to the west in two thousand seventeen. I was like put it on. Switch put it on like every time anything has mentioned about persona five scramble. It's like put it on or what's that or on xbox no switch. This isn't Intendo. No because this is a persona being a playstation exclusive You know the that's been an established fact for awhile with spin off. Titles obviously making their way to to our systems here and I've always wondered what was going on whether it's just You know it's marketing coop. Subsidy or anything and like athletes has never been that vocal about why that is and whether this timed and to me an answer like that sounds like I don't know but I don't want to disappoint you so I'm going to say hey if you keep asking for maybe it will come some. Yeah I mean you're talking about one of the most beloved and well regarded Japanese. Rpg's of all time. And I think they can run on switch. It could run on switch. It was developed for the playstation three. And I think that that you know atlas and Sony well Sony specifically learning to play. Nice in the same way that Microsoft has like. You're looking at a potential blockbuster right like like I've already sold really well. In the playstation I think a switch port would do the exact same numbers if not better and people are yelling about every time. There's any sort of persona anything and it. It's baffling to me that that this is all speculation. But it's crazy to me that Sony isn't willing to play ball and just rake that money from that game especially Because personify scramble is it is coming to switch and it is. It is the sequel. Like if you watch the trailer it starts out as persona five two and it kind of like flipped it into looking jokers and smash and all that so. It's also not a precedent that we haven't seen before because there's been dozens but there's been tons of persona spinoffs like especially the persona q a Dungeon Persona Q. I know what? You're yeah the persona q series that was a series based on playstation franchise looking kingdom hearts. No thanks but to play that. Game at story air quotes from. Start to finish. You have to go to seven different plot. Right right yeah. It's pretty silly. I've I don't know but anyway don't give up. Hope keep asking you talk to me. That sounds like it's probably in development and they don't want to confirm it or it could be. I have no idea if Japan will ever do it. So that's more so what it sounds like to me is like it. Sounds like atlas. We don't know it would definitely that is a giant long game. It'd be nice to be able to take that is he. A Nintendo has revealed another switch light color. This time in coral launches in Japan on March Twentieth. Which is the same day as animal crossing? So even though we're not getting 'em crossing switch late Japan's getting the core one and we are getting it in the US. On April third. So this I mean kind of jealous with the comments that we've heard from their earnings. Call that the switch light is selling well two female players you know introducing more colors that Not to stereotype the pink system but a more appealing to female players. Maybe it seems like they're they're they're really doubling down on that market. I think that's really cool. I think that's really smart when I saw the coral system because Nintendo America tweeted it out The the single image and then an image with like all the colors together. The pink one was the first one that I've seen in a switch light that I was like. That's that I like that. I want to get that like. I think it's gorgeous. It's a really cool color. I know some people were lamenting about it. In Our podcast forums about how they would have bought the coral if that was available in how Some of their younger children are a little bit disappointed about having the skill one instead of the coral gets it. I don't know how many different systems I can't keep you can't you can't attach the console. It's not worth it. You can let me get this straight. You can own three hundred joy con..
