Weeeelcoooome to Nintendo Voice Chat Episode 367! This week on our show: we share what we know about last week’s new game announcements for Switch and 3DS, we explore Miranda’s irrational hate (fear?) of the lovable creatures known as the Rabbids, and give our impressions of both Mario + Rabbids and Metroid: Samus Returns.
Join Brian Altano, Zach Ryan, Miranda Sanchez, and Peer Schneider to hear our thoughts on the latest Nintendo news, the games we’re playing, and, of course, answers to your most burning questions in our (almost) weekly Question Block segment.
As always, you can watch NVC here on IGN and on our YouTube channel or listen to it on your commute in audio format. If you enjoy the show, say something nice and tell your friends! Positive reviews on iTunes ensure that more listeners find the show — and comments and questions pertaining to our show (rather than random reactions to headlines) always make us happy! But we’ll take those, too.
