Episode 40: The Haunt Is On

We ain’t afraid of no ghosts and to prove it, we fired up our Pultergusts and explored the world of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we share our full impressions of the ambitious new 3DS title, as well as of Game Freak’s first non-Pokemon game in seven years, HarmoKnight. To kick off the show, we first take a look at a noticeable shift in Nintendo’s third-party support strategy, analyzing whether new indie initiatives announced at the Game Developers Conference are in place to counteract weakening support from major publishers. Plus, we discuss a variety of big stories, including new Wii U eShop titles, first details on Donkey Kong Returns 3D’s additional features, and late-breaking Pokemon X & Y news. So strap on that Pultergust and join us as we sweep through the latest on all things Nintendo!
