NXpress Nintendo Podcast 261: Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain Review

On this episode of NXpress, we review Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain, and celebrate it as one of the Switch’s sleeper hits of the year.



Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain

This week on the NXpress Nintendo PodcastCameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill serve up a brainteaser of an episode with a review of the recently released Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain. This competitive yet educational multiplayer party romp may not have gotten the publicity normally befitting a first-party Nintendo release, but despite its obscurity, it might just end up being one of the best multiplayer games on Switch. Marc schools the gang on all the lessons to be learned from Big Brain’s surprisingly competitive yet endlessly accessble minigames, heaping praise on this inventive title. Don’t miss out on what could be the Nintendo sleeper hit of the year!

Next up, Cameron gives the hosts a spotlight on Unsighted, an indie action adventure game built in the vein of 2D Zeldas and Hyper Light Drifter. Set in an apocalyptic world where every single NPC has a finite amount of time before reverting to a primal, dangerous state, Unsighted tasks players with making tough decisions and offers an immensely rewarding experience for those who can make it through its many challenges. All this and more in a short but sweet episode before the end-of-year insanity sets in!
