Last week, Nintendo released its financial results, and it came with some bad news for Wii U owners and Nintendo fans in general. Those of you hoping Nintendo would release the NX later this year might be disappointed to learn that Nintendo has officially confirmed the NX to be launching in March 2017. The briefing describes it as a “brand-new concept”, but doesn’t give any further details. In addition, Nintendo revealed that Zelda Wii U is being pushed back to 2017 and Nintendo has confirmed that the game will have a dual release with the Wii U and NX, much like how Twilight Princess was released on both the GameCube and Wii. Finally, Nintendo has outlined its E3 plans for the upcoming Legend of Zelda, stating that it is going to be the only playable Nintendo IP at E3 this year. This week we invite Goomba Stomp Contributor Vincent Yueng to talk about how we feel about these decisions and what we think Nintendo might do in the next twelve months. All this and more.

Best of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast: Revisiting ‘The Wizard’

Published

The Wizard 1989 Movie Review

Although e-sports have long been a part of video game culture since the early ’70s, competitions saw a large surge in popularity in 1989 when Universal Pictures-produced The Wizard, a movie about a trio of kids who make their way to a national Nintendo video game championship for a grand prize of $50,000. The Wizard didn’t go down as a timeless, cinematic classic, but it did develop an understandable cult following as the years went on, and in this segment, we tell you why.

Super Mario 64 Podcast Review

In this segment, we continued our Super Mario marathon and discussed Super Mario 64, arguably one of the greatest video games to date, and one which all games would be judged henceforth. How does it hold up today? Listen in and find out what we think.

Editor’s Note: Sadly, half of this 50-minute review was accidentally deleted. We plan on revisiting Super Mario 64 again in the near future.

Super Mario Galaxy Review

In this segment, we continued our Super Mario marathon and finally got around to discussing the third 3D original platformer in the series after Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. The iconic mascot’s long resume features some of the greatest platformers to ever grace any home console and on this episode, we reviewed Super Mario Galaxy, created by Nintendo’s EAD Tokyo studio, whose first project (believe it or not) was DK Jungle Beat, a disappointing flop for Nintendo.
