Tetracast - Episode 281: Cains vs Abels

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

In 2023's first episode of the podcast, we open up with a quick look back at 2022 and our end-of-the-year awards. We then discuss our interview with KEIZO, the developer of Astlibra Revision.

The meat of this episode is centered around our preview for Fire Emblem Engage, as well as a look back on the recently released Chained Echoes. We also take a look at Harvestella, and bring in some discussion about classic horror RPG Sweet Home because when can.

It's been more than a month since our last regular podcast episode, so we have a lot of news to catch up on, including the announcement for Fate/Samurai Remnant, the announcement of Ys X Nordics, a release date for Final Fantasy XVI, and a lot more.

This edition of the Tetracast features Bryan Vitale (@ZeoMassicot), Josh Torres (@HD_Kirin), Adam Vitale (@King_Seda), James Galizio (@Theswweet), and Chao Min Wu.
