Tetracast - Episode 223: Search Action Exploration

Welcome to the latest edition of the Tetracast, RPG Site's regular, seemingly weekly podcast! 

After a hectic week of Tokyo Game Show announcements, things slow down a little bit in this episode. Adam opens things up with his positive takeaways from Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights. Then, Josh and James go off-genre for a bit to discuss the recently released Metroid Dread. We then have a few follow-up thoughts on both NEO: The World Ends With You and The Legends of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki.

News this week is headlined by a staff/structural change at Sega's Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, as lead members Toshihiro Nagoshi and Daisuke Sato leave the company for other opportunities. Sora is in Smash and the Kingdom Hearts series is coming to Nintendo Switch (sort of). We also have just a few lingering TGS announcements to cover, such as a release date for Dragon Quest X Offline in Japan and a Sword Art Online / Tales of Arise crossover DLC.

This edition of the Tetracast features Bryan Vitale (@ZeoMassicot), Josh Torres (@HD_Kirin), James Galizio (@Theswweet), and Adam Vitale (@King_Seda). You can find links to the full episode of the podcast below along with our RSS feed, and also subscribe to us on iTunes or Google Podcasts, and follow on Spotify!
