Splatoon 3 Adds 33.3% More Splatfest
It's another episode of the greatest Nintendo podcast ever, Nintendo Voice Chat! This week Kat and Seth are joined once again by Reb Valentine as well as Steve Bowling making his NVC debut. We had thirty minutes of Splatoon 3 goodness to go over, but that's not all that happened this week in the wonderful world of Nintendo. So ink up, friends, and get ready to splatter.
Can Pokemon Find Its Breath of the Wild Moment?
On this week's NVC we're diving into the latest Pokemon Presents reveals and asking, "When Will Pokemon Get its Breath of the Wild Moment?" Also, how cute is Fidough? Should Lechonk worry? And what would happen if the Nintendo Switch didn't change for another two years? Find out in our latest Kat Take! Of course, we can't forget squeezing in even more Xenoblade Chronicles 3 chat in our latest Question Block. Have at it, Super Ninfriendos!

NVC 621 - Live A Live Was Worth the Wait + NSO’s Impressive Retro Library
Live A Live makes its way to us for the first time in glorious HD2D this week and Nintendo is at San Diego Comic Con (sort of). Plus, Super Mario Strikers gets a content update, but will it be enough to pull fans back to the stadium? Finally, a ton of retro game praise and discussion. Join Rebekah Valentine, Peer Schneider, Samuel Claiborn, and Casey DeFreitas this week on Nintendo Voice Chat for hands-on impressions of Live-a-Live and a deep-dive into the now especially robust Nintendo Switch Online library.
The Real Nintendo Direct Was the Friends We Made Along the Way
Kirby's Dream Buffet and Bayonetta 3's release date announcement makes it seem like maybe we won't be getting a Nintendo Direct after all, and that's fine! We're all so tired. Join Kat Bailey, Peer Schneider, Tom Marks and Seth Macy this week on Nintendo Voice Chat to discuss Bayonetta, Kirby, and some of that Monster Hunter Goodness. Oh, and an extended Question Block segment, where we answer YOUR questions.

E3 Is Coming Back!
It's official: E3 2023 is a thing, a thing which is going to happen in the second week of June next year. This is tremendously exciting news, but it's so far away, so we also talk about more recent news. For example, Live A Live preview embargoes have lifted, there's rumors of a new Nintendo Direct (evergreen statement), and we talk about why the GameCube's colorful shell makes it worthy of our love.
This show makes my day and I hope you can continue making amazing content
PS the next dlc character will be monster hunter fighter
I Love Nintendo Thank You
I love you guys - I’ve been listening for over 10 years it’s a joy. Slightly less monster hunter and Pokémon talk though please :)
