New Year! New Episode! Starting off 2023, our 5th year as a podcast, we’re joined once again by our good pal, NikoTengoku! The Super Famicom (or as we know it outside of Japan, the Super NES) is host to a COLOSSAL list of excellent game soundtracks, but the Japan exclusive stuff usually gets overlooked. Niko helps us pick 10 awesome tracks that we know you’re gonna love, along with a very, VERY silly episode as per usual with Niko. We poke fun of certain game title names and songs, get a visit from not one but TWO legacy PixelTunes Radio characters, AND officially “knight” Niko as our 3rd co-host! Though his role will remain as a guest contributor to the show, we’re always excited to be joined by Niko and he always brings the funny and engaging discussions to XVGM Radio!

Big thanks to NikoTengoku for guesting on the episode! As always, check out his stuff here:
