Axe of the Blood God: The Super NES Classic Appears, Valkyria Revolution Fails

PODCAST | Breaking down Episode Prompt, the Super NES Classic, and the failure of Valkyria Revolution.

This article first appeared on USgamer, a partner publication of VG247. Some content, such as this article, has been migrated to VG247 for posterity after USgamer's closure - but it has not been edited or further vetted by the VG247 team.

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

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God (download link here), we break down the Super NES Classic, Episode Prompto, and more!

Valkyria Revolution is a disappointment in more ways than one. Not only is it quite a shoddy game, it badly hurts the changes of the Valkyria Chronicles series making a meaningful comeback. Sega has repeatedly botched its handling of Valkyria Chronicles since its successful debut in 2007, which is a shame because this series deserves better.

Happily, Nintendo seems to be doing a better job with their own history, as the newly-revealed Super NES Classic looks to have a ton of fantastic games. We break it all down and talk about what we'll be playing first!
