 Nintendork 13 13 2:05 pm
    for Nintendo 3DS
    I got Fantasy Life vibes.

 RawkHawk2010 2:05 pm
    Which makes sense considering this is Grezzo.

 RawkHawk2010 2:05 pm
    Grezzo did the 3DS Zelda ports right?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:05 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:05 pm
    Didn't look horrible.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:05 pm
    Got a Final Fantasy dev working on this.
    Made Chocobos.

 RawkHawk2010 2:05 pm
    Better than GO.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:06 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:06 pm
    This dev and translator are awkward as fuck tho. 2:07 pm
    He doesn't sound excited to be presenting this at all.

 RawkHawk2010 2:07 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:07 pm
    Maybe it's part of his cool guy image.

 RawkHawk2010 2:07 pm
    Is he trying to be like the Team Ninja guy?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:07 pm
    His name is "Koichi Ishii"
    I'm not following this at all.

Koichi Ishii Grezzo Nintendo E3 2016
Koichi Ishii and his translator. Mr. Ishii didn't seem enthusiastic or energetic.

 RawkHawk2010 2:08 pm 2:08 pm
    "Can't you tell by my tepid mood how enthused I am?"

 Nintendork 13 13 2:08 pm
    Well, here's gameplay. Maybe this'll make more sense.
    Tethu is the main character who is a dude, but you can play as a female too.
    "I'm going off-stage"
    Mic issues. 2:09 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:09 pm
    Nutes? Newts?

 RawkHawk2010 2:09 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:09 pm
    Tweeting things.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:09 pm
    Owl-Penguin hybrids.
    I like them. 2:09 pm
    Called... Newts.

 RawkHawk2010 2:10 pm
    Is there a Malia? 2:10 pm
    I'd expect nothing less from the creator of Chocobos and moogles.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:10 pm
    Bring the Newts back. >_< 2:10 pm
    I do like "community building" games.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:10 pm
    They live in a treehouse?
    Mermaid girl is your "partner"
    "The character design in this game is so incredible"

 RawkHawk2010 2:11 pm
    I'm not big on social graces~
    Think I'll slip on down to the oasis~

 Nintendork 13 13 2:11 pm
    You're not Audrey.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:11 pm
    The Newts are rich.

 RawkHawk2010 2:11 pm
    I'm trying to be Garth Brooks.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:11 pm
    wtf he's mugging the shops
    With wind.

 RawkHawk2010 2:12 pm
    You've never heard that song?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:12 pm
    Build a Jew Shop? 2:12 pm
    dat tax levi

 Nintendork 13 13 2:12 pm
    They're making a Bloom Booth instead.
    Something about "chosen seedlings" 2:13 pm
    Grow a juice shop.
    Just like Spongebob's house. <_<

 Nintendork 13 13 2:13 pm
    Oh. I'm confused.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:13 pm
    The only thing I understand are the cute Owl-Penguins.

Ever Oasis Noots penguin owls

 RawkHawk2010 2:13 pm
    That's Egyptian?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:14 pm
    IT'S SPELLED NOOT 2:14 pm
    Noot Gingrich.
    Running mate of Yungoos.

 RawkHawk2010 2:14 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:14 pm
    They loaded another 3DS to a dungeon.
    Party members.
    "Parties are a huge part of this game."

 RawkHawk2010 2:15 pm
    is that a giraffe

 Nintendork 13 13 2:15 pm
    It's a lizard.
    Miura. 2:15 pm
    That spear looks like an ear of corn.

Ever Oasis Miura spear Nintendo 3DS
Well, Treehouse said it looks like a flower.

 RawkHawk2010 2:15 pm
    lol yeah
    This reminds me of Uprising.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:16 pm
    They're fighting bugs.
    Inside pots. 2:16 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:16 pm
    More mining for quartz.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:16 pm
    Switching between party members to solve puzzles.
    You synthesise items, aka growing your weapons and equipment. Instead of buying.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:18 pm
    You have to recruit party members.
    "Reto has an ability to transform into a pellet"
    "The developers have put so much heart into this game, the absolute passion is very clear."
    Treehouser thinks it's too early in the morning.
    She's clearly an afternoon person.

 RawkHawk2010 2:20 pm
    Like Rare
    (Since Rare employees used to not go to work until after lunch.)

 Nintendork 13 13 2:21 pm
    Yeah, these do remind me of the Forces of Nature chapters of Kid Icarus Uprising. 2:21 pm
    Read that as... something else.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:21 pm
    Kendra came up with all of the names for this game, personally. 2:21 pm
    Let's just say.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:21 pm
    "We worked really hard to stay close to [the developer's intent]"
    Antagonist is called "Chaos"

 Nintendork 13 13 2:22 pm
    And "sweeps your brother away" and corrupts local animals.

 RawkHawk2010 2:22 pm
    Chaos Kin
    Didn't Chaos Kin do the exact same thing?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:23 pm
    Boss fight.
    It fights by dropping pots on you and laser beams.

Ever Oasis dungeon boss fight Baastu
Guess you didn't have enough lasers from Day 1?

 RawkHawk2010 2:24 pm
    so can he, like,

 Nintendork 13 13 2:24 pm
    It's a statue.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:24 pm
    It rotated.

 RawkHawk2010 2:24 pm
    What are they saying that sounds like "ebola"?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:24 pm
    I'm not sure. 2:25 pm
    It's Roto's weapon.

 RawkHawk2010 2:25 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:25 pm
    "This game has everything that I want in an RPG. A really strong story, really interesting character designs, world-building, strong enemies, puzzles..."
    (Hopefully Color Splash has some of those.)

 RawkHawk2010 2:26 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:26 pm
    "We helped him out by beating him up."

 RawkHawk2010 2:26 pm
    Called it!

 Nintendork 13 13 2:27 pm
    "Now he can rest. He's probably tired waiting for someone to beat him up."
    They still have time for exploration on another 3DS.
    Some of these Noots bow to you.
    Day/night mechanics exist.

 RawkHawk2010 2:29 pm
    Grezzo should have ended this after the boss.

Ever Oasis Melody Wheel
Come on Rawk. This Melody Wheel was amusing.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:29 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:29 pm
    Greezo has no say?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:30 pm
    I dunno.
    There's a rainbow in-game.

 RawkHawk2010 2:30 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:30 pm
    The rainbow signifies the health of the Oasis.

 RawkHawk2010 2:30 pm
    another dungeon

 Nintendork 13 13 2:30 pm
    Guess their producers said no.

 RawkHawk2010 2:31 pm
    oh good

 Nintendork 13 13 2:31 pm
    "Stay tuned" for what?

 RawkHawk2010 2:31 pm
    Did he just say "Stay tuned for some other hots"?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:31 pm
    That's what it sounded like.
    But I dunno what that means.

 RawkHawk2010 2:31 pm
    Let's go with that.

 RawkHawk2010 2:40 pm
    Box Box Boy

 Nintendork 13 13 2:40 pm
    Box Box Boy?
    Another new IP?
    Oh. This is that HAL thing?

 RawkHawk2010 2:40 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:40 pm
    A sequel of that box thing before.

 RawkHawk2010 2:41 pm
    And in a log last year I pointed out that Box Boy looks like the Twitch logo.
    I don't wanna watch 30 minutes of Box Box Boy.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:41 pm
    Well, even this Box Boy thing had a story.

 RawkHawk2010 2:41 pm
    It's...the same thing.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:42 pm
    According to Miiverse, Box Boy is actually amazing.
    And everyone should buy it.

 RawkHawk2010 2:42 pm
    Well it's HAL.
    Guess they deserve benefit of the doubt 2:42 pm
    That's it, I'm watching this on YT. At least it's not dying on me every five seconds there.

 RawkHawk2010 2:43 pm
    Tell Geoff Keighley we said hey.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:43 pm
    They're admiring how cute the protagonist is.

 RawkHawk2010 2:43 pm
    What does Geoff even do outside of E3 and the VGAs?

 Nintendork 13 13 2:43 pm
    They say HAL is a master at making simple shapes be cute.

 RawkHawk2010 2:44 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:44 pm
    the logo egg-dog

 Nintendork 13 13 2:44 pm
    Prince Fluff.

 RawkHawk2010 2:44 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:44 pm
    Or whatever he was.
    The blue dude who was supposed to be Kirby Epic Yarn's original protagonist.

 RawkHawk2010 2:44 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:44 pm
    QB has costumes bought from medals.
    He's a Cat.

Box Box Boy cat costume 3DS
You can transfer costumes from the first Box Boy to this game.
    Some of the costumes have an effect on gameplay.
 RawkHawk2010 2:46 pm
    all i know is that this is not engaging as a watcher

 Nintendork 13 13 2:46 pm
    It's a puzzle platformer.

 RawkHawk2010 2:46 pm
    I'd rather watch Breath.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:46 pm
    So yeah, not meant for watching.
    Sacrifice the cat to the spike trap for science. 2:47 pm
    Cat got ground up. =-O

 Nintendork 13 13 2:48 pm
    No time limit, though it does keep track of time for scoring.

Box Box Boy block hat cat electricity puzzle
This block is used as a hat to not get zapped.

 RawkHawk2010 2:51 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:51 pm
    Hey, that looked clever.
    Just now.
    This comes out June 30th.

 RawkHawk2010 2:52 pm
    #filibuster is trending.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:52 pm

 RawkHawk2010 2:53 pm
    this music doesn't sound good.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:54 pm
    "I didn't have my coffee this morning, so I'm on a mean streak~"

 RawkHawk2010 2:54 pm
    It's basically 8-bit versions of the more depressingly monotonous Animal Crossing music.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:54 pm
    Box Boy 1 on sale later today.
    Plugging My Nintendo.
    For further discounts.

 Nintendork 13 13 2:55 pm
    "Free money"

 ultralink1 2:55 pm
    I love animal crossing music

 Nintendork 13 13 2:55 pm
    "We're trying to save you guys some cash."
    Oh hey did Pokémon GO scare you?

 RawkHawk2010 2:55 pm

 Nintendork 13 13 2:55 pm
    Well, that'll get its own log.
    Stay tuned???

We didn't talk about the new Mario Party: Star Rush game yet on KoopaTV, so next segment will be all about that. Stay tuned???

The previous segment was here.
The next one is here!
Ever Oasis is coming out June 2017, which means it showed up during E3 2017 as well!


  1. I never played the original BoxBoy, but I may consider picking it up since it's on sale. At least I don't have to wait long for the sequel.

  2. Hey look, another JRPG with the cutsey chibi graphics that most JRPGS seem to be using these days.
