Episode 47: Turning Over a New Leaf

We’re going green in this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast with full impressions of Animal Crossing: New Leaf and New Super Luigi U! But before we can talk up our roles as mayors and second-fiddle plumbers, we have news to cover. Lots of news. The show kicks off with a look at newly announced Wii U indie games, including a claymated point-and-click adventure and a new title from the man behind Conker’s Bad Fur Day. We then turn our attention to a large serving of E3 2013 leftovers, discussing a slew of interviews that shed new light on big games such as Mario Kart 8 and the next Super Smash Bros., Nintendo’s plans for free-to-play gaming, and more. We round out the news by focusing on the May sales charts, examining what went right with 3DS and what continues to go wrong with Wii U.

As an added bonus, this episode also includes the return of our occasional third chair to provide an additional perspective on all the big stories. Feel free to us know what you think of the tweaked dynamic by posting a comment below, and while you’re at it, we’d also love to hear your thoughts on any of the topics discussed!

    I’m super late in commenting, but would you guys be interested in posting your dream suite addresses or mentioning it on the podcast? I’d love to see what your villages look like. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t have my 3DS on me to list mine, but my village name is St. Olaf…Mecca in St. Olaf if you do a search. ๐Ÿ˜€
