NXpress Nintendo Podcast #181: ‘Link’s Awakening’ and ‘Sayanora Wild Hearts

Plus ‘Mario Kart Tour’ and problems with shopping at GameStop.



This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast we start by discussing Mario Kart Tour, Nintendo’s latest foray into the mobile market. Can Mario Kart Tour revolutionize the series for mobile or is the game a complete disappointment from Nintendo?

Next, Ricky goes wild for Sayanora Wild Hearts, the latest from indie developer Simogo and publisher Annapurna, the visionaries behind Year Walk and Device 6.

In the main event, the gang reviews Link’s Awakening for Switch which according to Patrick, doesn’t quite reach the definitive summit. Do the rest of the boys agree with his review? Considering the original Game Boy game is Tim’s favourite Zelda game, chances are they don’t.

Last but not least, the gang discusses the problems with shopping at GameStop and why they prefer to either buy digital copies of games or order games online. All this and more!
