Episode 51: Mean Green Dreaming Machine

Prepare to embark on a whirlwind tour of alternate realities: the dream worlds inside Luigi’s head, a monster-filled version of 1970s Tokyo, and one of three different dimensions of street fighting. This episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast stops in each of these worlds as we bring you impressions of 3DS RPG Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, eShop downloadable title Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale, and the Wii U Virtual Console version of Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers. But before we can depart on these journeys, it’s important to be fully packed – with news, that is. The show kicks off with a look at what’s new on the indie front, both in terms of new game announcements and changes to Nintendo’s own eShop policies. We then focus on the major players, discussing fresh details on upcoming Wii U titles such as Zelda: Wind Waker HD, Sonic Lost World, and Call of Duty: Ghosts, plus a rumored Pokemon fighting game. In a final bit of news, we break down July’s sales numbers and Nintendo’s latest attempts to turn around the Wii U. So put on those virtual walking shoes, press play, and let the travels begin!
