Isn't it great when a sequel comes out a week afterwards? Well, not if it's a $60 game, but for a free podcast, we'd certainly hope so!

The Famicrew finished up episode 15, put their microphones back in the drawer for another month, and started to enjoy their summer break – but Satoru Iwata had other plans! Nintendo Direct hit, containing all sorts of juicy news and release dates. But it's not that just the Nintendo Direct conference was held, others were announced and a whole Twitter-storm of news descended over Japan at the same time. 

Thankfully, Team FC are on the case to bring you clarifications, analysis and future megaton predictions! We also start the hype-train for Tokyo Games Show. Just how long will Danny have to line up for Monster Hunter this year? Place your bets now!

As an additional bonus we've also squeezed in a special Dragon Quest X segment with Matt Walker, who has been playing the game since launch. Listen and learn about the many unique features of the game and how it unlocks hardware features of the Wii you didn't know existed!

So listen in. You're sure to have a Super Magnificent (TM) time!

Ugh, since I'm keeping up with the Chrono Stone anime, only having the first two Inazuma Eleven games at hand here in Europe is a pain in the ass...

Stand up! Stand up! 立ち上がリーヨ! (or something like that)

Inazuma 11 baffles me, I mean it's about as much to do with football as Mario is to do with selling mushrooms.

Ha ha! I was watching the second Inazuma movie the other day with the audio commentary track on and the director actually had several football elements in mind with the start of the movie, and that shows. But they all agreed that by the end of the movie it was all about the players' Hissatsu Techniques and Avatars. But that is what the series does so well, not taking the sport seriously at all!
