Fate is in our hands. Well, Fire Emblem Fates is. In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we journey to the lands of Hoshido and Nohr to share our early impressions of the anticipated 3DS RPG. First, however, we start the show with the latest news, including the launch of Nintendo Accounts, fresh details on Miitomo (along with our theories on the smartphone apps Nintendo will make next), and the likelihood of Pokemon Z becoming a reality. We then turn our attention to an actual Pokemon game, Pokken Tournament, discussing what it will take to make the fighter a long-term success. The episode then concludes with a breakdown of January sales numbers, our Fire Emblem Fates impressions, and a revisit of Mario and Luigi’s last 3DS RPG outing, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.
