NXpress Nintendo Podcast #196: The Great Nintendo Baseball Draft



Though Nintendo hasn’t oiled its mitt and strapped on some cleats since 2013’s Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball, the company is no stranger to America’s pastime and has a wealth of prospects in its franchise farm system. As such, its only natural that the NXpress would eventually do a baseball draft of Nintendo characters, and that time is now. This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, Tim and Patrick fill their rosters from the deep stable of Nintendo games, stacking their lineups with speed and power, while trying not to sacrifice fundamental defense. Will they be drawn to traditional ‘eye-test’ scouting, or will sabermetrics lead to that championship team? You’ll have to tune in to find out who made which surprising picks!

Before that, the two catch up on what they’ve been playing recently. Having finally played through all that Fire Emblem: Three Houses has to offer (and taking over 250 hours to do so), Patrick sends the game off on one last spate of praise. Meanwhile, Tim fills him in on what’s been going on in Animal Crossing New Horizons, including describing his island’s spooky setup, as well as the new additions coming via DLC.

For all this and more, have a listen!
