We talk about how Switch’s holiday 2017 lineup is shaping up.
Welcooooooome back, Nintendo fans! In episode 373 of our weekly talk show, Nintendo Voice Chat, we share out thoughts on the many announcements Nintendo stuffed into this week’s Direct broadcast.
Join Casey DeFreitas, Brian Altano, Zach Ryan, and Peer Schneider, for a discussion about Bethesda’s attempt to fill the “shooter gap” on Switch with Doom and Wolfenstein, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Octopath Traveler, Pokemon, new systems, amiibo, Kirby, Mario Party, Splatoon, and so much more. We also ask the question whether Nintendo has shown too much of Super Mario Odyssey and hear from Casey why you should be playing Monster Hunter Stories on 3DS. It’s a packed show, but we also managed to squeeze in another Question Block segment.
As always, you can watch NVC here on IGN and on our YouTube channel (subscribe and like!) or listen to it on your commute in audio format. If you enjoy the show, share it with your fellow Nintendo fans and leave us a review on iTunes or Google Play.
