Episode 123: Do a Barrel Roll

A lot of bombs dropped in the world of Nintendo – and no, we’re not just talking about the ones you fire in Star Fox Zero. From NX officially launching in 2017 to Nintendo’s peculiar plan of only showing Zelda at E3, there’s been a lot of big yet questionable announcements coming out of Nintendo lately. In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we make sense of it all with analysis of each decision, including thoughts on the NX’s potential year-one game lineup, Nintendo’s smartphone plans for the Fall, and a breakdown of the company’s financials. We then conclude the episode with in-depth impressions of a game packed with some actual bombs (and lasers and anthropomorphic animals), Star Fox Zero.
