Episode 45: E3 2013 Direct Response

E3 2013 is well underway and Nintendo came out swinging. While its lineup may be short on surprises, there is no doubt that Nintendo still delivered a ton of news. We’ve got it all covered in this special E3 episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, from Super Mario 3D World to every last detail on the next Super Smash Bros. We kick off the show with an analysis of the E3 Nintendo Direct and its many announcements, ultimately determining whether the Wii U’s newly solidified lineup has what it takes to turn around disappointing hardware sales. We then shift our focus to the 3DS with a discussion of upcoming titles such as The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Yoshi’s New Island, concluding the episode with a look at big Pokemon X & Y news from the game’s Developer Roundtable. With this much to talk about, Episode 45 is one you don’t want to miss!

This is just the beginning of our E3 2013 coverage. Check back later this week as we’ll be visiting The Nintendo Experience at Best Buy to try the Wii U’s upcoming games. Coverage of the event will begin with a new Extra article tomorrow, June 13, followed by full hands-on impressions in our next regularly scheduled podcast episode on Sunday, June 16. You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and follow us on Twitter @RandomNintendo to make sure you don’t miss it.

As always, we have provided links below to all the news and games covered in this episode. Time stamps are listed next to each link so you can easily find the segments that most interest you. Enjoy Episode 45!

      Thanks, Ben! We unfortunately weren’t able to get enough Luigi loot to make a contest worthwhile, but we’re hoping to host some sort of other giveaway in the future.
