Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another Monday, and another episode of The Downpour Podcast!

Jonathan may have been ill this past week, but it didn’t stop him from covering/talking everyone’s ears off about the epic Nintendo Direct that just aired. Not only do the podcasters chime in about Bravely Default being localized for the West, but there are plenty of predictions, especially about the not-yet-localized Dragon Quest games and the long-desired Majora’s Mask 3DS remake.

After the Nintendo Direct, there’s plenty said about Pandora’s Tower and the developers behind it, as well as Soul Hackers, and even Mega Man gets some discussion! There’s also a response to last week’s Vita discussion featuring Lead Reporter Steve Baltimore, and lots of anime talk to round out the show. It’s definitely a complete package this week, folks!

We always appreciate your feedback! Be sure to comment on this post, or you can send an email to

  • Really liked the podcast guys! Good job! ^_^ I’m a persona fanboy so I got quite giddy when “It’s time to make history” came on! (Though at one point I ended up singing over your talking) XD Loved the Vita talk! And like Jonathan I really want to get one (Soul Sacrifice and P4G look PHENOMENAL!) but the price… it’s well…. CRAY! CRAY! (#oprainfallbrawl4?!)

    Also I followed you on twitter! Thanks for following me back! 😉 Keep up the great work! 😀 You’ll be podcast famous soon enough! XD (Oh and sorry for not coming on the previous 3 episodes…. I’ve been meaning to get around to doing that! >.<)
