Episode 179: Super E3 2018 Bros.

On June 24, 2018 by Jason Rechtman and Jose Angel Salado

It’s an E3 extravaganza! In this jam-packed episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we’re back from E3 2018 with hands-on impressions of Switch games big and small, from blockbusters like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pokemon Let’s Go to third-party titles like Starlink: Battle for Atlas and Team Sonic Racing to indies like Killer Queen Black and Overcooked 2. Plus, we discuss the games that didn’t make it to the show floor and examine the changing face of the convention.

Any good extravaganza also needs prices! Nintendo passed out all sorts of goodies at their booth, and we’ve compiled them into a special prize pack! Leave a comment below telling us your favorite news from E3 2018, and you could win a set of Mario Tennis Aces pin, a Smash Bros. logo pin, an “I Brought Mine!” Nintendo Switch pin, a Smash Bros. logo towel, and two Nintendo Switch cleaning cloths (all pictured below). The winner will be announced in our next episode, so make sure you don’t miss it by subscribing to us on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play Music, or your podcasting app of choice, and follow us on Twitter @RandomNintendo.

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