NXpress Podcast #47: Nintendo Direct & ‘A Link to the Past’

Published

This week’s episode sees the NXpress crew give their take on some of the bigger announcements and trailers from Nintendo’s latest Direct, ranging from excitement over the new Kirby game and J-pop levels of enthusiasm for the crazy-weird looking Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE to cautious optimism for Star Fox Zero, and some outright disappointment for a couple of other games that didn’t fare so well in their respective impressions, Metroid Prime: Federation Force and Paper Mario: Color Splash.

After pondering to the future, for our main segment we take a look back to the past and one of the greatest entries in Nintendo’s seminal Legend of Zelda franchise. A Link to the Past is a masterpiece that set the formula for how Zelda games are thought of to this day, but where does it stand in the series pantheon? We dive deep into one of Link’s greatest adventures and talk about why it still holds up today (even Link’s pink hair). All this and more!

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.

Super Mario Sunshine Podcast Review

It was a brave move on the part of Nintendo to launch the GameCube without a Mario game. Instead, Mario’s younger sibling took the spotlight in a new series Luigi’s Mansion. It was six years after Super Mario 64 was released that Nintendo gave us Super Mario Sunshine. In this segment— taken from episode 21 of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast— we take a look back on Mario’s summer getaway and everything that made the beautiful tropical island of Delfino so frustrating and fun.
