NXpress Nintendo Podcast #168: ‘Pokemon Sword’ and ‘Shield’ Direct

I hope you’re in the mood for Pokemon! This week, Tim and Patrick have a one-on-one about the latest announcements for the franchise, including last week’s press conference and the brand-new Direct. First up on the topic, Tim does his best to explain to Patrick how Pokemon Home might work, what the heck Pokemon Sleep is, and why fighting trainers in a new mobile game could be cool. After that, the two tackle the Direct, debating which of the two legendary cover pokemon looks the best, where the new Dynamax mechanic ranks on the list of Pokemon gameplay additions, Tim’s dream of giant monster raids coming (mostly) to life, and how the world is visually shaping up. Are we excited for this latest iteration? You’ll have to listen in to find out!

Before all the Pokemon gab, however, the guys talk about what they’ve been playing lately, and muse over the value of certain indies and smaller Nintendo games. Somewhere along the way, Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell is discussed; it’s a weird tangent.

For all this and more, tune in to the NXpress Nintendo Podcast!
