Episode 180: Get In The Zone

On July 8, 2018 by Jason Rechtman and Jose Angel Salado

Wimbledon and the World Cup might be giving you a real-world tennis and soccer fix, but what about on the video game side? In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we share impressions of two games that do exactly that: Mario Tennis Aces and atooi’s newest eShop title, Soccer Slammers. We also examine how Nintendo is pivoting the Switch through expanded marketing and product launches (a Disney Channel show?! Labo steering in Mario Kart?!), as well break down an unexpected post-E3 wave of third-party game news. Plus, we check in on Pokemon Go for its second anniversary, throw back to the 90s with Strikers 1945 impressions, and announce our E3 swag giveaway winner.
