Axe of the Blood God Reviews The World Ends With You on Switch!

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | And Assassin's Creed Odyssey too!

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.

The World Ends With You is now available on the Nintendo Switch, and we're here to review the port of one of the best DS games ever on the latest episode of Axe of the Blood God [download link here]!

Caty wrote about The World Ends With You when it launched last week, and she has some extended thoughts on the controls, the endgame, and the music right here. We all agree that The World Ends With You is pretty great in general, though the Switch may not be the best way to enjoy it (cool as it is to play on a TV). Find out why!

In the second segment, Mike joins the crew to talk about whether Assassin's Creed Odyssey lives up to its billing as an RPG and more. Check out his full review here!

Show Description

Caty McCarthy returns to talk about The World Ends With You's move to Nintendo Switch, where the group talk about how the controls translate, co-op, playing on the big screen, and the new endgame content. Then Mike Williams joins in to talk about Assassin's Creed Odyssey's bonafides as an RPG, its romantic options, and the troublesome problem of microtransactions.

Music from Axe of the Blood God is courtesy of Lena Chappelle, who has also contributed the themes to Active Time Babble and Roleplayers' Realm. I also use music from the RPG Music Pack over at rpgmaker.net. Check it out!
