Episode 79: Cross-Examined Crossovers

Whether it’s Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright, Pokemon and Tekken, Mario Kart and Zelda, or just everyone crammed into Smash Bros., it’s crossover galore in this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast. The show starts off with our full assessment of the newly announced (and appropriately named) New Nintendo 3DS, including a breakdown of its features and how it represents a shift in strategy for Nintendo. We then turn our attention to all the crossovers with thoughts on Mario Kart 8’s unexpected DLC, Pokemon’s Tekken-style fighting game, and the latest on Smash Bros. and those pesky roster leaks. The episode then concludes with witches by way of both fresh Bayonetta 2 details and our full impressions of Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, a game in which the hat-wearing puzzle solver and finger-pointing lawyer team up to prove an accused witch’s innocence.

Which crossover game are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments section below, where you can also share what you think about any of the news in this episode. Be sure to also check back later this week for our full coverage of GameStop Expo 2014.
