Episode 222: All Scrambled Up

On February 16, 2020 by Jason Rechtman and Jose Angel Salado

It’s a time of defied expectations. You expect Nintendo to never let go of an IP, yet they do with The Wonderful 101. You expect E3 to be the epicenter of gaming, yet big names drop out. And maybe you expect Professor Oak to remain Pokemon’s one true Oak, yet in comes his long-hair-don’t-care counterpart Grand Oak. In this episode of the Random Nintendo Podcast, we share our takes on all that scrambled news and pair it with a scramble of a different kind, our hands-on impressions of the upcoming Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. Plus, we spend some time with the Pokemon Home app, break down the lineups of EVO 2020 and Switch Online’s February SNES/NES update, and more.
