NXpress Nintendo Podcast #172: The Switch Lite, ‘Super Mario Maker 2’ and the N64/GameCube Tech

The calm before the storm is officially over, as the release of Mario Maker 2 kicks off the bounty of Nintendo’s solid lineup of 2nd-half games for 2019. in our main segment this week, Tim and Patrick are joined by Goomba Stomp writers Izsak Barnette and Ty Davidson to give our impressions on the new features and refinements, and whether or not this sequel does enough to improve upon an already stellar original. Do we know how to design expert Mario levels? Probably not, but it turns out that there’s plenty of creativity and inspiration already out there from the Nintendo community to last a lifetime! From themed levels to a more classic approach, Mario Maker 2 has a little something for anyone who’s a fan of the little plumber who could.

After that, Izsak continues his series on the tech behind Nintendo’s various consoles. This week it’s the N64 and GameCube, and you may be surprised with some of the interesting engineering decisions made in constructing these two legendary machines. Before all that, however, the guys also briefly offer up some thoughts on the newly announced Switch Lite. Is this dedicated handheld device a great alternative for the casual gamer, or something that might confuse the brand? All this and more on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast.
