The 3DS’s summer lineup was dominated by one thing: rhythm. Both Theatrhythm Final Fantasy and Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure recently arrived on the handheld, leading to a very musical summer. We compared the two games in our 3DS Rhythm Rundown, and now, in this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we go into more in-depth impressions of each title. We also share our thoughts on the latest wave of Wii U game announcements, including EA’s newly revealed launch lineup and Toki Tori 2. Plus, we discuss July sales numbers and present a ridiculously detailed analysis of the Wii U’s game box design. Whether you prefer music, sports, or box art chitchat, this episode’s got something for you!
