NXpress Nintendo Podcast 266: Chicory: A Colorful Tale Switch Review



Chicory: A Colorful Tale

This week on the NXpress Nintendo PodcastCameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill are joined by friend of the show, Goomba Stomp writer, and creator of amazing stuff, Marty Allen! In this cute animal extravaganza, the gang starts by reacting to the cinematic masterpiece that’s sure to sweep this year’s Oscars–and of course, we’re talking about the Pokemon Company’s latest animation, Bidoof’s Big Stand. A true tear-jerker in every way, this 8-minute clip is well worth all fans of everyone’s favorite HM slave.

After that, the gang takes an emotional detour to discuss Chicory: A Colorful Tale, a surprisingly impactful journey packed with adorable critters, plenty of food and animal puns, a painterly gameplay loop, and a poignant story of burnout, acceptance, and coming to terms with one’s whole self. It’s yet another hit from the makers of Wandersong, an accessible adventure that lets the player paint their own story–an experience sure to resonate with anyone who has a passion for creativity.

Closing things out, Campbell and Cameron bow out as our resident Animal Crossing experts, Marc and Marty, take the lead sharing their impressions on the Animal Crossing New Horizons DLC. New Horizons might be past its prime, but the new content is more than enough to entice new players back to their islands–and it might just lure in some new players, too (unless you’re a curmudgeon like Campbell). Animal Crossing fans will want to tune in!
