Episode 59: The Stuff of Legends

An extra dimension isn’t the only thing the 3DS has added to the land of Hyrule. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds also shakes up the franchise’s tried-and-true formula in a number of big ways. In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we share our impressions of Link’s latest adventure and examine its role in the evolution of Zelda gameplay. Before we set out on our quest, however, we have lots of news to cover, including the latest on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS, Kirby: Triple Deluxe, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. We also share our thoughts on last week’s VGX event, Nintendo’s November sales performance, and Miiverse for 3DS.
