Podcast: We Can't Wait For The SNES Classic

Illustration for article titled Podcast: We Cant Wait For The SNES Classic

From SNES Classic games to Nier: Automata, this ultra-long episode of Kotaku Splitscreen’s got it all. We even snagged ourselves a Chris Kohler.


First, Kirk and I talk about FFXV: Episode Prompto and Cave Story + on Switch. Then we get into Vidcon drama (19:27), Diablo III getting a Necromancer class (29:14), and Destiny 2 giving hardcore Destiny players some emblems (35:35). We bring on Kotaku features editor Chris Kohler (38:08) to talk SNES Classic, retro games, and the Switch before closing things off with a Nier: Automata SPOILERCAST (1:16:52).

You can get the MP3 right here.

As always, you can find Splitscreen on Apple Podcasts and Google Play. Reach us at with any and all questions, requests, and suggestions. (We’re recording a Q&A episode next week, so if you want to be considered for that, get your questions in now!)

Good luck learning Japanese! While harder to learn foreign languages as an adult, in the case of Japanese you’re better for it. I tried valiantly to learn in high school for close to the same reasons (50% fascinating culture, 45% JRPGs and 5% Anime interests) and it was seriously the freakin’ weabos in the class that made the learning environment impossible to work in.

I tried again in college hoping it would be different and on the first day some fuck struts in wearing cat ears and I almost murdered him on the spot.

Suffice to say I can ask basic tourist questions, read hiragana and katakana just fine, and pick up on some key words but beyond that has been lost to me. :(
