NXpress Nintendo Podcast #166: ‘Detective Pikachu’ Movie, ‘Super Mario Maker 2’ and ‘Mortal Kombat 11’

This week on the NXpress Nintendo Podcast we review Detective Pikachu, which marks the first time any Hollywood studio has attempted a live-action movie adaptation of the popular Pokemon gaming franchise. Is Detective Pikachu just another cash grab, or is this movie more than just product placement? We answer this question while also trying desperately to make sense of the convoluted plot. Before that, we set aside some time to discuss Mortal Kombat 11, which Harry calls one of the greatest fighting games ever made, while Rick claims it features one of the best story modes in the genre.

Finally, the guys discuss Super Mario Maker 2, launching exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system on June 28. Thanks to a recent direct, we were given a deep dive into the game’s new features, including new course parts and tools, a new single-player story mode with more than 100 Nintendo-created courses, new course themes, details about online course sharing*, options to create and play together with others, and information about a special offer for Nintendo Switch Online members. The presentation also covered the upcoming Super Mario Maker 2 Invitational 2019 tournament, streaming live online the weekend before E3 from Los Angeles so there’s a lot to cover. It’s another jam-packed episode, and somehow we managed to keep it under one hour. Enjoy!
