NXpress Nintendo Podcast 95: ‘Mario Kart 8’ and our favorite parts of ‘Breath of the Wild’

This week they guys discuss whether the additions to ‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’ are enough, as well as their favorite elements from ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.’



Now that our time with Breath of the Wild is finally coming to a close, this week Tim and Patrick are joined by Game Boys podcast co-host Ryan Kapioski to talk about our favorite characters, weapons, shrines, and a whole lot more. What costumes did we run around in and freak out villagers with? Who was Hyrule’s weirdest resident? And why did Tim have a secret pining for a certain Sheikah? Tune in to find out!

Before that, however, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe releasing this week, the guys discuss if the additional modes and the Switch’s portability are enough to warrant a full-price purchase of a game we all (mostly) loved on our late Wii U’s. What do you think? Will you be racing at a rooftop party with your joy-cons? Let us know in the comments below, and thanks for listening!
