Three mission-based games, one convention where we got to play them. In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we report back from WonderCon 2016 with hands-on impressions of the upcoming Metroid Prime: Federation Force, Star Fox Guard, and Star Fox Zero, plus news straight from the show floor about Hyrule Warriors Legends. We also share our early takes on Miitomo and what it indicates for Nintendo’s future app plans, along with the latest details on another big-name smartphone app from Nintendo, Pokemon Go. To top it all, we then conclude the show with in-depth impressions of Wii U’s hot new fighter, Pokken Tournament.
