Episode 21: The tardy twenty first episode of the PokeProblemsPodcast! Today's biggest news is the release of Pokken Tournament, the Pokémon fighting game! The roster of 16 characters looks pretty good, but Chandelure??? There are special controllers that you can get for Pokken, too. You can play at Church on the Hill in Boston tonight. There's a lot more Pokemon news... Pokémon Shuffle has a new safari and a corresponding great challenge with Noivern. Celebi is March's "Legendary Pokémon of the Month", you can connect to the Nintendo Network to download a free L100 Celebi. Target has Shiny Magikarp cards to giveaway tomorrow! There are also new Pokémon straw toppers at KFC... in Japan. Phew, I am sure we missed something! On to other gaming news. PlayStation VR... Guys, if you want one, you will have to get on the pre-order train, the pre-orders on Amazon.co.uk are already sold out... The price point is $399, and the release is coming in October, if all goes well! If you are looking for a cool short adventure for the 3DS, the demo for Bravely Default sequel, Bravely Second, is available in the Nintendo eShop. This Square Enix game is a traditional RPG-type game, and the stand-alone demo is about 10 hours of play. Mario Maker received some new content, including a Super Expert difficulty for the 100 Mario Challenge. Miz Sylver is afraid! Upcoming Splatfest: build a snowman or a sandcastle? While the popularity of Frozen pretty much ensures that "Snowman" will be the popular choice, the Wolf Doctor would rather build a sandcastle! If you are in the New York area, head to Monster Hunter NYC's 3rd anniversary party tomorrow, Saturday March 19th at 5pm. If you are in Boston, you can instead go to StreetPass Boston's Saturday March 19th meet-up, at the Prudential Mall at 2pm. (Click those links for more details.) Oh, and Miz Sylver had a lovely time working for Minecraft SuperLeague, and the events were successful enough that they will be having more sessions in the future! (Oh, and Rocket League is going to have cross-play between the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One... Have you ever heard of such a thing?)
