Brian is on vacation this week, so on this episode of All Things Nintendo, he’s joined by editor Andrew Reiner to answer questions from listeners. Then, after the break, Brian gets the final verdict on Live A Live, the new HD-2D remake of Square Enix’s cult favorite RPG. Finally, Jill Grodt joins All Things Nintendo for the last time as a member of the game informant staff to give us indie games to watch in the near future.
The All Things Nintendo Podcast is a weekly show where we can celebrate, discuss and break down all the latest games, news and announcements from the industry’s most recognizable name. Each week, Brian is joined by different guests to talk about what’s going on in the world of Nintendo. Along the way, they’ll share personal stories, discover hidden gems in the eShop, and even revisit the classics we all grew up with. A new episode comes out every Friday!
