Episode 130: Change We Can Believe In

If there’s one word that sums up this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, it’s change. Be it Pokemon Snn & Moon, Metroid Prime: Blast Ball or even the return of Layton, nothing is following in its own footsteps. We start off with the biggest change of them all, Nintendo’s move from two gaming devices to one with reports of NX truly being a hybrid device. We break down what that means for both the company’s future and the system’s potential power. We then shift over to game changers, as in changes in actual games, with our thoughts on Pokemon Sun & Moon’s new gameplay flow and battle mechanics, as well as the disappointing removal of key features from Pokemon Go. Our attention then turns outside the Poke-verse, from the new Lady Layton to our impressions of Metroid Prime: Blast Ball, before concluding with Angel’s gaming tales from Japan.
