Episode 137: Paint The Town

In this post-Switch world, how can existing Nintendo platforms make a splash? For 3DS, it’s with an Animal Crossing revamp and a zany RPG starring your Miis. For mobile, it’s with app updates galore from Miitomo and Pokemon Go. And for Wii U, it’s with the very colorful Paper Mario: Color Splash. This packed episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast covers all that and more, including a full breakdown of last week’s Animal Crossing Direct, a first look at Miitopia, hands-on with Nintendo’s big new Miitomo update, the latest on the Switch’s third-party support, and impressions of the titular Paper Mario: Color Splash. Oh, and did we mention our Wii U retrospective or our theories on the current NES Classic Edition shortages? Because yeah, those are there too.
