Episode 148: Snake on a Plane

The Random Nintendo Podcast is going international.

There’s plenty happening on the home front too as we share full impressions of the eShop’s Snake Pass and break down all the big Nintendo Direct news, including new 3DS announcements, first details on new modes for ARMS and Splatoon 2, and the latest happenings with amiibo.
