With Persona 5 Strikers – the Dynasty Warriors-flavored sequel to the original P5 RPG – out this week, we’re joined by special guest Emmett Watkins of VGU.TV for a look at five sequels that switched to a new genre, forever changing the trajectory of their series. Then we’ll dig into to Bowser’s Fury, get stomped in Valheim, go through the Nintendo Direct news with a fine-toothed comb, and discuss the characters you’d want to see turn evil.
Question of the Week: What’s a series that you’d want to see switch to a new genre, and what would you change it to?
