On August 10, 2014 by Jason Rechtman, Angel Salado, and Kevin Gomez

The slower summer months are a great opportunity to revisit eShop games you may have missed, and in this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we’re giving you the lowdown on what you should be downloading. From original titles such as Moon Chronicles and Toki Tori to new DLC for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, we share impressions of an assortment of eShop-only options. Our download coverage extends to the news as well as we discuss new game reveals from indie darlings Renegade Kid and Two Tribes, Mario Kart 8’s upcoming Mercedes DLC, and Nintendo’s controversial retailer-specific Hyrule Warriors DLC costumes. We also assess the recent Hyrule Warriors Direct as a whole and the latest on Smash Bros., as well as dive into a full analysis of Nintendo’s quarterly financial report. All that, plus the announcement of our Smash Bros. shirt winner, awaits in Episode 77!
