It’s easy to forget the little guys during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. For every 3DS flagship title and Wii U system seller, there’s the eShop-only Crashmo and the under-the-radar Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. This episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast is dedicated to those less hyped games. We share our impressions of both Crashmo and Sonic, along with thoughts on all the latest news, including hints of what’s to come for Wii U, the shrunken down Wii Mini, Black Friday sales numbers, and more!
