GOT2LISTEN Special: Reactions to Nintendo’s 11.12.15 Direct

842 1

Last week we were gifted with a pleasant surprise of a new Nintendo Direct, the first one since the late Nintendo President Satoru Iwata’s passing. We decided to hold off from talking about it during our last GOT2LISTEN Podcast as that itself is going through a bit of a transformation.
We’re hoping to move away from speaking about news on a weekly basis and instead bring our audience a more curated form of content that will ALWAYS be relevant rather than trending newsbits.

That said, we still can’t avoid nor ignore when some amazing news comes our way, and Nintendo really did surprise us all with the amount of content it packed into it’s just under 50 minute presentation. While there was three separate Directs for each major region in the world, they all for the most part had the same news, but we curated all of the relevant info into one long but jam packed podcast discussion with our friend from the rising sun, Tony Inkwell Conte of LoveoftheGamer fame!

Have a listen as we, talk about what we think of Nintendo’s latest announcements, game releases, and big surprises involving our favorite franchises of the past.
