8-4 Play: 2/19/2021: DIRECT DE GO!!

We gorge on Nintendo news along with 17-Bit’s Jake Kazdal, topping it off with lots (and lots) of thoughts on Bowser’s Fury and very, very little FFXIV updates. And the long-awaited reveal of exactly what time Gabe secured his PS5 order.

Every other week, tune into 8-4 Play for talk about video games, Japan, and Japanese video games, straight from the 8-4 offices in beautiful downtown Tokyo. Hosted by 1UP Japan's own Mark MacDonald, John Ricciardi, and Hiroko Minamoto.
