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
