NXpress Nintendo Switch Podcast 143: ‘The Messenger,’ PAX West and the Nintendo Direct

This week on the NXpress Nintendo Switch Podcast, we discuss the latest Nintendo Direct including the announcement of Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Animal Crossing on the Switch, not to mention the high-definition versions of some of the most beloved Final Fantasy games of all time and a special edition of the groundbreaking Katamari Damacy. And that’s not all! We also discuss the Nintendo Online service, the Nintendo Entertainment System Controllers, and the stunning Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros. Ultimate set. Before any of that, Tim reports on his experience at PAX West and shares his thoughts on the best indie games he played at the event. Finally, in our bonus content, our guest Maxwell N joins Ricky to review The Messenger, yet another indie game taking inspiration from the action-platformers of the 8-bit and 16-bit eras. Retro throwbacks are a dime a dozen these days, but we’ll let you know if The Messenger is worth your time and money. All this and more!
