Our first double-digit episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast is all about the comebacks. After twenty years, Pit is back in the gaming spotlight with the release of Kid Icarus: Uprising for the 3DS; and after a briefer five year hiatus, the Mario Party franchise has returned on the Wii with the launch of Mario Party 9. In this episode, we share our impressions of both of these comeback titles, along with the latest news on Wii U third party support, the announcement of Epic Mickey 2, and more! Oh, and did we mention that we hung out with Mario and Luigi last weekend? Yes, it really happened (see the photos below for proof), but the only way to find out why the mustachioed mascots paid us a visit is by listening to today’s episode!
We want to hear from you, too! What are your thoughts on Kid Icarus: Uprising and Mario Party 9? Were the years of waiting worth it? Just leave a comment below and share your own impressions! As always, we would also love to hear what you think of today’s episode and the RN Podcast as a whole, so please leave us your comments and suggestions.
