Episode 150: Fast and Furious

Restart your engines. Mario Kart 8 is back in Deluxe form, and we’ve got lots to say about it in this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast. We share our full impressions of the Switch racer, including an in-depth discussion of how the metagame has changed and whether it’s worth double-dipping for owners of the Wii U version. We also weigh in on Nintendo’s recent Zelda and Fire Emblem DLC announcements with an analysis of what they did right and wrong, as well as cast our E3 2017 predictions based on recent first- and third-party Switch announcements and rumors. Plus, we give our impressions of Puyo Puyo Tetris.

As always, we’ve included links below for more information on the news and games discussed in this episode. Each link also lists a time stamp to easily locate the segments that most interest you. Enjoy!

Correction: When discussing the Fire Emblem Echoes DLC, we mention it’s the highest priced DLC to date for the series. The full DLC for both Fire Emblem Awakening and Fire Emblem Fates exceeded its price. We apologize for the error and thank listener Andri Gschwend for catching it.
