Tetracast - Episode 193: Where in the World is Baba Sandiego
Welcome to the latest edition of the Tetracast, RPG Site's regular, seemingly weekly podcast!
In this episode of the cast, the crew opens up with some continuing thoughts about Bravely Default II, with some spoiler-light discussion about Chapters 1 and 2 while comparing the latest entry to previous Bravely titles. After a little diversion to talk about Persona 5 Strikers, Josh and Cullen talk at length (spoiler-free) about Gnosia - a logic puzzle 'whodunnit' kinda narrative RPG from Playism that released for Nintendo Switch last week. To end the topical section, Josh has some mixed thoughts about Neptunia Virtual Stars.
The news section this week is mostly filled with niche Japanese dates and announcements, headlined with a proper unveil of Fantasian - a new RPG from Mistwalker from Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi. We also new dungeon crawler localizations for Undernauts: Labyrinth of Yomi and Mary Skelter Finale, alongside many new release dates for upcoming Japanese RPGs. The episode ends with a brief chat about the new battle system in Kuro no Kiseki, as well as chatter about the current whereabouts of longtime Tales boss Hideo Baba.
