I thought about including an unknowable number of pluses but that would be too easy.

No New Business this week because the Nintendo Universe was rocked with a double-dose of news. We cover the dramatic oversights of Super Mario Maker 2 and the dramatic weirdness of the Pokemon business meeting. We then roll into a quick round of E3 Predictions.

After the break we knock-out some emails: a rant about Pikachu telling you to go to bed, a plan to add Labo VR to Switch titles, a list of games that disappointed us, and a request to figure out where the heck is The Big Ape is going. You can send us an email here.

Just a heads-up, we'll be recording our E3 reaction show LIVE! That means we'll be streaming the recording session, and you'll be able to join us in the chat. We'll be going live on June 11 at 9 PM Eastern, 6 Pacific. More details will be provided, including links to the chat and the audio, when we get closer to the date. Don't worry if you can't make it, the episode will be published within a day.

One final piece of news. Nintendo World Report is rebooting it's Patreon program. RFN believes in the reboot, and so we'll be contributing to the backer-exclusive content with one podcast a month. None of the content you've grown to tolerate from the main show will be impacted. We plan to use this space to produce kinds of content we don't normally include in our episodes. You can see all the details here.

This episode was edited by Guillaume Veillette. The "Men of Leisure" theme song was produced exclusively for Radio Free Nintendo by Perry Burkum. Hear more at Perry's SoundCloud. The Radio Free Nintendo logo was produced by Connor Strickland. See more of his work at his website.

This episode's ending music is Fi's Gratitude from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Composition by Takeshi Hama. It was requested by Zach. All rights reserved by ‎Nintendo Co., Ltd.

Did not expect Jason Statham to guest on this pod!

Wouldn't Donkey Kong be the third of his name?
