Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

This is Miyamoto. This week on the NXpress Nintendo PodcastCameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill react to the latest shakeup in Nintendo’s release schedule and pour one out for the Mario movie’s delay into next Spring. But not long after that, it’s off to a galaxy far, far away for a jam-packed Star Wars extravaganza!

The gang starts out by reviewing what has to be the most ambitious Lego game in a decade, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. Moving on from the simple top-down collectathon format of the previous Lego Star Wars adventures, The Skywalker Saga introduces genuine innovation to the series by repurposing it as a fairly in-depth third-person action game–all without losing the series’ signature silly charm, of course. Maybe it didn’t completely stick the landing in some sections, but all told, it’s an extraordinary treat for longtime Lego lovers and Star Wars fans alike.

Marc and Cameron follow this segment up by taking a deep dive into the glorious cheesefest that is Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, newly rereleased on Nintendo Switch and other current-gen hardware. It’s no Fallen Order, but this last-gen adventure still has plenty to offer with its fantastical power fantasy of force-focused action, plus some surprisingly excellent motion controls on Switch. Will this give Skyward Sword HD a run for its money?

Lastly, Cameron closes the show with only the slightest of tonal shifts by discussing his experience playing the adorable cat capitalism simulator, Cat Cafe Manager.
