We Break Down the First Kingdom Hearts 3 Hands-On in Detail

We Break Down the First Kingdom Hearts 3 Hands-On in Detail

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | Nadia and Kat dive into Mike's impression's Kingdom Hearts 3, talk Pokemon leaks, and discuss SMT Strange Journey Redux.

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

It's finally happening. Kingdom Hearts 3 is actually coming out. Nadia and I put aside our shock to talk about Mike's impressions, as well many other things in the RPG space [download link here]

Also, hi! I'm back after a long trip abroad and back at the controls of the podcast. I want to thank Anthony Agnello for stepping in as a guest host in my absence, and for John Learned for popping in as a guest as well. They did a great job of serving the Blood God while I was away.

Anyway, it's straight to business now that I'm back. Kingdom Hearts 3 was playable last week, and Nadia and I hash over every detail of Mike's detailed preview. Plus, Nadia shares her thoughts on SMT Strange Journey Redux as a converted Persona fan, we talk about the numerous Pokemon leaks, and we figure out the D&D alignments for the entire USgamer staff. All that and more in the latest episode of Axe of the Blood God!
