Episode 15: Serving Up Mario Tennis

On June 3, 2012 by Jason Rechtman and Jose Angel Salado

Mario and the gang are back on the courts in Mario Tennis Open, and we’ve got our full impressions of the 3DS game in today’s episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast! That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though: with E3 2012 mere days away, we dive in to all the latest game announcements, including Injustice: Gods Among Us for Wii U and Castlevania for 3DS, along with the final round of pre-E3 Wii U rumors. We also took a trip to the LA Convention Center to check out the setting up of the expo. You can find our photos below, but be sure to listen to the podcast for the full harrowing tale, complete with Nintendo employee sightings and angry security guards.

As you can guess, E3 2012 is going to be huge. To help cover it all, we will be posting two special episodes of the RN Podcast over the next week. Be sure to visit the site on Tuesday, June 5 for an episode dedicated to the Nintendo Press Conference. Then, check back on Sunday, June 10 for a second episode that covers the rest of E3, including Nintendo’s Software Showcase and third-party game news. You don’t want to miss this!

With E3 right around the corner, what are you most excited about? Let us know 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!

    Great podcast guys! Sadly the Wii U isn’t so special with their tablet controller now that Microsoft has introduced the Smart Glass.

      Thanks! We’ll definitely be discussing Xbox SmartGlass and what it means for Wii U in tomorrow’s special E3 episode.

    smart glass sucks! I can only see it being cool to football fans since they get to make their plat on the tablet. Other than that it really has nothing to do with gaming
