8-4 Play: 6/26/2020: XANA-DON’T

This week we touch briefly on The Last of Us–or how it makes us feel things. Dark things. Then it’s business as usual with talk of the latest Pokémon news, the joy of mining, and of course Strong Zero.

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.
