You’d think that an episode without a character reveal would be boring. Right? WRONG. This week, Roger, Shofu and Ricky are joined by NintenDaan, Styles_X2, Chr1sCross, Sucker4Jessica, W1tch Doctor and the elusive Shizzy VI to discuss Sakurai’s latest Miiverse pictures and reveals. What is Tomodachi Collection? How does the Lumiose City stage work? Who would be a better Kid Icarus rep: Palutena or Medusa? All of these questions and more will be answered in this episode! Don’t miss it!

To celebrate the release of Frozen on Blu-Ray today and the upcoming launch of Mario Kart 8 (5/30), I decided to team up with Danny Lopatka, the awesome guitarist from my “Let It Go” cover, to put together a very special Mario Kart version of “For the First Time in Forever” for you all! Enjoy!

Roger, Shofu, Ricky, Zef and Coast discuss the newest veteran character reveal (Lucario), Sakurai’s Miiverse Pics of the Day, and the “leak” that has the entire Smash Bros. community talking. Could Palutena really be a playable character in the next Smash? NOTE: This episode was recorded before the Little Mac reveal.

Another mid-February means another Nintendo Direct!  Like Nintendo Directs past, this appears to be a world-wide simultaneous message.  Unlike Nintendo Directs past, this is in the afternoon North America time instead of early in the morning.  This means that it is late night for our friends in Europe and early Friday morning for those in Japan.

The Nintendo Direct is scheduled to start at 2PM PST (5PM EST), which is about 30 min from the time of posting this article and is to last approximately 41 minutes.  If you would like to watch the live stream and follow along with our live coverage of the stream, click the link below.  Commenting and other participation in the blog is welcome.
