If you’re a Zelda fan, this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast is for you. We share hands-on impressions of the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, weigh in on the not-yet-official HD remake of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and discuss new Hyrule Warriors Legends reveals. Not a big Zelda fan? We’ve still got you covered! This episode also features our takes on recent reports of the NX coming out as soon as next year, plus we examine how the lack of Nintendo Directs may be hurting Nintendo’s messaging and take a look at the improving amiibo situation. The episode then concludes with full impressions of Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut, along with a discussion of why a Platinum Games-developed title like Transformers: Devastation somehow didn’t make it to Wii U.
