INSiGHT: NEO Magazine: Issue 190 (Review) on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

As we hit the middle of 2019, and the sweltering heat that comes with it, NEO Issue 190 offers a host of content to wipe off those brows, and hang out in the shade with. The primary attraction this time being an interview with the director behind the Kakeguri series, Yuichiro Hayashi; his inspirations, choosing the right animation studio for the job, and the differences he sees between Manga and its bigger-screen adaptations. A handy Watcher's guide for the netflix-hosted Neon Genesis Evangelion is an essential read for the curious, detailing key highlights and expectations for the polarizing legendary series. 

Rising from the ashes of E3 2019 comes a handy recap of the most interesting fantasy-influenced games, including Code Vein, Tales of Arise, the remaster of Ni No Kuni 1 and the ambitious Elden Ring; straight from the mind behind Dark Souls and the Author of the Game of Thrones books. The Nintendo focus is with two reviews and a manga featurette. Both the creative behemoth Super Mario Maker 2 and indie crossover Cadence of Hyrule are put to the test, and continuing the Zelda influence is an interview with artist Akira Himekawa on adapting Nintendo's acclaimed series into graphic novel form. 

A quick look into Japanese lifestyle yields interesting details on their food and drink options, namely the envious number of Kit Kat flavour options available to them, and the coincidental sound-alike the name has in their native language, and the types of alcoholic destinations open to local and foreigner alike. 

After a good number of Anime features and reviews, including, but not limited to Attack on Titan, Sarazanmai, and Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, we have a Manga Extract highlight featuring Parallel Worlds; a striking and uniquely-styled alternate Earths tale. One for the ladies this month in the Manga Snapshot article with Monthly Cheese, a periodical collections of arts geared towards teenage love and relationships. For these features and many more, NEO Issue 190 is on sale now from all good retailers and vendors.

I've not read NEO in the longest time, I think the last time I read it, it had a focus on Dance in the Vampire Bund or something XD Glad to see it still going strong!
