Welcome back to The Game Informer Show! We have a big episode this week, with a passionate unloading of everything we learned in Tokyo from visiting Game Freak for our new cover story on Pokémon Sword and Shield and YS Net for Shenmue 3. We also share early impressions of Nintendo’s bizarre new fitness peripheral and Ring Fit Adventure game. After some wonderful community emails (thank YOU!), we’re joined by the director of Capy’s Grindstone Dan Vader, senior producer of Skate City Andrew Schimmel, and Where Cards Fall’s Sam Rosenthal to talk about the process of releasing content on the Apple Arcade.
You can watch the video above, subscribe and listen to the audio on iTunes or Google Play, listen on SoundCloud, stream it on Spotify, or download the MP3 at the bottom of the page. Also, be sure to send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to have them answered on the show.
Our thanks to the talented Super Marcato Bros. for The Game Informer Show’s intro song. You can hear more of their original tunes and awesome video game music podcast at their website.
