NXpress Nintendo Podcast 257: Nintendo Earnings Extravaganza + NSO Genesis and N64 Impressions

This week, we react to the latest sales figures from Nintendo’s earnings report and discuss the positive side of Nintendo Switch Online.



Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack

This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast, Cameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill work through yet another busy show packed with news, reviews, and impressions! The gang starts out by diving into the latest record-breaking sales updates from Nintendo’s latest earnings report, including the Big N’s incredible sales numbers for hardware and software, potential film adaptations, and even hints at an eventual Switch successor released sometime in the next several decades.

Next up, the gang shares their most recent impressions of the classic games offered as part of the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. Despite some justified pessimism about the add-on’s high price of entry, there’s plenty to love in the classic games on offer, from stone-cold classics like Super Mario 64 to hidden gems like Sin and Punishment. With an excellent selection of titles along with generally high-quality emulation, the Expansion Pack provides a hearty helping of old-school goodness.

Lastly, Campbell shines a brief indie spotlight on Tunche, a tried-and-true beat ’em up set in the Amazon rainforest that represents indigenous folklore and culture in a solid action-packed romp. As always, all this and so much more in this week’s show!
