Episode 14: Mashups and Mad Cats

On May 20, 2012 by Jason Rechtman and Jose Angel Salado

There are rumors and then there are crazy rumors. The idea of a Metroid/Star Fox crossover game falls into the latter category. It’s not often that Nintendo combines franchises, so an intergalactic mashup of this nature deserves special attention. In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we discuss this very rumor, along with Ubisoft’s ambitious Wii U plans, a slew of other Wii U rumors, and the latest video game sales numbers. We also share our impressions of both Go! Go! Kokopolo for DSiWare (which stars the “mad cat” of our episode title) and the 3DS demo of Rayman Origins, so be sure to take a listen!

What’s the craziest Nintendo rumor you’ve heard? Do you think a mashup of Star Fox and Metroid will happen? Share your thoughts in the comments section below! While you’re there, 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.

As always, if you would like to learn more about any of the topics discussed on today’s episode, we have provided links below. Enjoy!

    I agree with Mike on that one. Also, idk how i feel about a samus cross over with starfox.

    Wait the amputee thing in star fox makes sense because in those type of altitudes blood will flow out of the pilots head to reach the legs and by amputating their legs they can maintain more blood for their brain.
