NXpress Nintendo Podcast 144: ‘Into the Breach,’ The Switch Online Service, ‘Minit’ and Animal Crossing



After months of waiting, Nintendo has finally debuted their Nintendo Switch online service which comes with a new retro gaming offering in the NES app. This week, Marty Allen joins us to discuss the pros and cons of this new service. Before all that, we touch on a few indie games we haven’t yet had time to talk about on the podcast including Into the Breach, a turn-based strategy game which just so happens to be one of the best-reviewed games of 2018, and Minit, a really clever indie title consisting of sixty-second rounds in which the player attempts to uncover mysteries and lift a curse. Meanwhile, Rick and Marty go back and forth with their love and hate relationship with Dead Cells. Finally, ending the show is a twenty-minute discussion on what we want to see improved, added and updated in the new Animal Crossing game set for release on the Switch in 2019. All this and more!

The NXpress is a weekly podcast hosted at in which we discuss all things Nintendo. We stay clear from in-depth game strategies and keep things light. There’s plenty of nostalgia and feedback that will resonate with vintage game collectors; meanwhile modern games are sprinkled in and each week our show revolves around a central theme.
