With the announcement of the 3DS XL, Nintendo went big. Literally. In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we discuss the revised system, which features the largest screen of any handheld in Nintendo’s history. We also share our take on the latest Nintendo Direct news, including the game announcements and Namco Bandai’s role as the developer of the next Super Smash Bros. game. And speaking of Smash Bros., we tell our tale of woe of tournament play. All that, plus a live audience, are only a play button away!
