Suit up, it’s time to join the Toad Brigade. In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we share full impressions of the utterly adorable Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and tell you if its gameplay is as good as its charm. We also discuss the surprisingly large amount of Nintendo news that came out of The Game Awards, including first Zelda Wii U gameplay details and the latest on Mario Maker. Plus, we weigh in on the Amiibo shortage drama, examine Nintendo’s November sales numbers, and announce the winner of our $35 eShop credit giveaway.

    Great podcast! Discovered you guys last week for the contest and plan to keep listening. Looking for some details with the supposed discontinued amiibo. Hopefully Nintendo makes a statement with some answers.

    Hey guys! Thanks again for another great show! I’ve been excited to hear what you thought of Nintendo’s surprisingly awesome Zelda reveal last week.

    Oh and Captain Toad’s really great. My five-year old son and I play it together. He really likes it. I like it a lot too. Goes to show that a great game doesn’t need to massively expansive and expensive to make. It just needs good game play, a nice coat of paint, and most importantly be fun to play.

    Anyways, great show as always and thanks so much for all the time and dedication you put into the show.
