Episode 42: Challenge Accepted

The Wii U is a system of many challenges. On the one hand, you have the fun daily and weekly challenges of the new Rayman Legends Challenges App. On the other hand, you have the not-so-fun sales struggle of the console itself. In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we share our thoughts on all these challenges, good and bad. We kick off the show with an analysis of Nintendo’s recent financial report and the company’s plans to turn around Wii U sales, weighing the various ways the Wii U’s weak start can be transformed into a bright future. We also discuss some surprising news out of Nintendo’s financial meeting, including the abandonment of a traditional E3 press conference. But of course, not everything is doom and gloom as we then take a look at a variety of interesting new games bound for the Wii U and 3DS, followed by our impressions of the Rayman Legends Challenges App, the free-to-play Tank! Tank! Tank!, and the quirky Wii U Panorama View.
