We’re serving up Guacamelee impressions and lots of news in this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast. The show begins with the latest on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS, including newly confirmed details and our assessment of character lineup rumors that may be too good to be true. We then turn our attention to the Fall’s other big franchise, Pokemon, with discussions about new Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire details and the franchise’s upcoming expansion onto iOS. We also analyze the changing state of Ubisoft and Activision’s Wii U support, plus July’s sales numbers, before dipping into our full Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition impressions.
