NXpress Nintendo Podcast 254: Animal Crossing DLC, NSO Expansion Pack, and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl Outrage

This week, we discuss the new Animal Crossing New Horizons DLC, rant about the NSO expansion pack, and tear down NIckelodeon All-star Brawl.



Animal Crossing New Horizons DLC

Animal Crossing New Horizons DLC Discussion

This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, it’s a wild ride of emotional highs and lows as Animal Crossing expert and Goomba Stomp writer Marty Allen joins Cameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill to talk all things Animal Crossing, Nintendo Switch Online, and Nickelodeon. Things start out on a positive note as Marc and Marty gush over the newly-announced DLC for Animal Crossing New Horizons. Not only does this added content deliver almost everything longtime fans could have ever wanted (such as the long-awaited return of the king, the Froggy Chair), but it also provides plenty of encouragement for holdouts to finally make the plunge and set out for a tropical island paradise of their own.

Things take a less positive turn as the discussion shifts toward the recent blowout of information on the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack, including its release date and–most divisively–its price. While Banjo-Kazooie, Ocarina of Time, and even Sega Genesis gems like Phantasy Star IV make the expansion pack an appealing prospect, it has to answer a larger question: can it justify a 150% increase over the base subscription? Despite all efforts to stay optimistic, the hosts aren’t so sure.

Marc closes out the show by sharpening his knives and embarking on a rage-filled rant against Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, a 2D platform fighter that had the potential to be the next Smash Bros. but squandered it amid shoddy development practices, bizarre direction decisions, and lackluster fanservice. Tune in for what may be the angriest 10-minute segment in NXpress history!
