I have a problem with Nintendo bringing so many deluxe versions “ports” of Wii U titles to the Switch. I want new games. I was loyal and bought a Wii U. Most of these ports I’ve already bought and played. I’ll admit they are good games, but I feel like Nintendo is ignoring its loyal customers in favor of people that couldn’t be bothered the first time around.
Discodave029 reviewed the show!
Really enjoy the family friendly podcast. I don’t have to look any further to get my Nintendo Switch news. Keep it up!!
Someone called in to the show and left a voicemail.
Hey, Bill. I'm a listener to your SwitchCraft podcast and I wanted to call and ask you a question regarding the headset. That's Splatoon is releasing. Do you think that Nintendo will make this readily available, or will be kind of like something Nintendo, usually does where it's really hard to find. I think it looks cool and the reason. I think it's going to sell it because it seems like the only way for most people to be able to mix the audio together with people like me that don't have a bunch of audio stuff laying around. I don't have any mixture of any kind so I kind of have to be getting this I was thinking if you have to wear ear buds under like a set of headphones, but this looks like a solution well not a great solution, but I just wondering if you think this is going to be sold out everywhere, I know. To find it just looking for your input. Thanks a lot. I love your show and PS. Please. Do not play my voice from there. I hate my voice. Thank you.
This isn’t made by Nintendo, it's officially licenced and made / distributed by HORI
Right now it isn’t announced outside of Japan
I’m sure there are going to be alternatives to this.
Nintendo’s new Switch Ad.
The game looks great, but really far off I’m guessing.
Each hero in the game will have a fully fledged campaign.
Same campaign, but different points of view
Commanders - super powerful unit / dies you lose.
Powered up versions of other units
High risk vs reward
Give you currency each turn
Gain HP every turn
Capture early hard to take back
Towns may swap back and forth quickly.
Summon flying units
Wagons allow you to move over roads really fast
Block roads to counter them.
Seasons have some effect on the game (you can see that its summer on the turn changing screen.
Weather conditions from different seasons will force you to change strategy.
Thawing in summer (units die)
The differences between different factions seem to be only cosmetic.
Commanders are very different though
They are trying to figure out how to deal with first turn advantage.
Starting with more cash.

Real time play and asynchronous!
There will be Fog of War in the final game.
Shante is out for the Switch
I’ve never played one, convince me.
That is all we have time for today, if there is a story that I missed let me know!
