Episode 06: Nintendo Gets Networked

On January 29, 2012 by Jason Rechtman and Jose Angel Salado

Crisper, clearer, and still chock full of Nintendo news – welcome to Episode 06 of the Random Nintendo Podcast! We underwent a long overdue microphone upgrade, and just in the nick of time, too. Nintendo made some big announcements at an investor meeting this past week, including an ambitious new online strategy (goodbye Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, hello Nintendo Network), a very intriguing Wii U feature, and plans for a new 2D Mario game on 3DS. In today’s episode, we speculate about what this all means, plus discuss the newest Kid Icarus: Uprising gameplay details, the 3DS’s recently-announced Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir, and the arrival of 3DS demos. To top it all off, we share our impressions of both Bionic Commando for the 3DS Virtual Console and the eShop’s newest platformer, Mutant Mudds. It’s a jam-packed episode that sounds better than ever!

We would love to hear what you think of both today’s episode and the RN Podcast as a whole. If you have a comment, question, or suggestion, please let us know in the comments section below!
