Power Button - Episode 55: How To Fix Nintendo Even Though It's Not Really Broken (Depending On Who You Talk To)
Nintendo has taken a lot of heat lately regarding its seeming inability to cater to the core audience, and by "core audience" in this instance I'm referring to the American division of the company's refusal to bring the three Operation Rainfall games — Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower — to North America. Is Nintendo's hesitance to publish localized versions of these games a sign that the company is somehow broken? If so, how would one fix it? This week on Power Button, Brad Hilderbrand and I welcome guests Keri Honea and Nick Michetti to discuss these very issues and hammer out just what Nintendo needs to do to appease the corest of the core audience.
