Episode 176: The Puzzling and the Promising

On May 13, 2018 by Jason Rechtman, Angel Salado, and Kevin Gomez

News: sometime it’s good, sometimes it’s bad. In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, some of it is downright puzzling as we break down the confirmed features of Nintendo Switch Online and the surprise 14-month-late release of Monster Hunter on Switch. We cover plenty of good news too, including what the Smash Bros. Invitational’s player roster may mean for the game as whole, Nintendo’s new all-in approach to mobile, and a bevy of third-party announcements. Plus, we share our impressions of crazy Switch physics platformer Clustertruck and discuss how difficulty can make or break a game like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
