Welcome back to the Pure Nintendo Podcast. We’re back to bring you the latest from the team, including our usual amiibo update, a Pokémon discussion, and a special interview with Barry Carenza from Premium Edition Games.

In this week’s news, Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet has seen a bit of backlash from fans, and we talk about the fact that Nintendo is refunding some players on the eShop. Jemma has (finally) been playing the new title (Violet, of course) and gives her own views on the game so far.

Roger also gives a recap on Once Upon a Jester, which is sure to be one of his games of the year. Then we delve into the lore of Minecraft, from Creepers to Illagers, since Jemma has been playing Minecraft Dungeons lately.

Finally, we interview Barry from Premium Edition Games to talk about the amazing process of creating physical copies of existing digital games for the Nintendo Switch. We also talk about the art of collecting and basically share our enthusiasm for gaming.
