8-4 Play 4/22/2011: PROJECT CAFÉ OLÉ

23 April 2011

What’s this? An episode of 8-4 Play where the crew actually talks about what they do all day: game translatin’? Believe it, spoony bard! Localization legend Richard Honeywood, he of such Square Enix favorites as Xenogears, Chrono Cross, and Dragon Quest VIII, joins us to talk shop, 64DD development, and being best buds (well, buds) with Nintendo prez Satoru Iwata. And speaking of Nintendo — did someone say Project Café? Tune in for idle speculation on the big N’s rumored Wii successor system, along with thoughts on Capcom’s Captivate games, Sonic Generations, and plenty more.

In this very special episode of 8-4 Play, we recap our live-to-tape hosting of the Grasstream2 Japanese tsunami relief charity event, put on by the good people at famed developer Grasshopper Manufacture. You will (hopefully) laugh, you will (probably) cry, and in the end, you might just learn something — about Pandora’s Tower, Hip Tanaka, Yakuza of the End, and how you (yes, you!) can help Japan recover via gaming. Let’s listening!
