The one word that sums up this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast? Fast. Whether it’s the insane top speeds of Fast Racing Neo or the fact that 2015 came and went in the blink of the eye, there’s no slowing down this show. We first kick things off with our takes on the Super Smash Bros. Final Video Presentation, including hands-on impressions of Cloud and thoughts on Corrin and Bayonetta. We then turn our attention to other big news stories, including rumors of a new amiibo-centric game and surprise Pokemon hardware announcements. From there, we share impressions of Wii U racer Fast Racing Neo, before concluding the episode with our 2015 Game of the Year picks and two special giveaway announcements.
