Welcome to the very first episode of the All Things Nintendo podcast! Join host Brian Shea as he welcomes fellow Game Informer editors Alex Stadnik and Ben Reeves to talk about all the latest in the world of Nintendo. The crew kicks off the episode talking about the games that made them a Nintendo fan in the first place before talking about their favorite Nintendo games of all time. From there, they launch into a discussion of the biggest news that came out of the recent Nintendo Direct, plus discussions about Sora from Kingdom Hearts coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Metroid Dread, and the new Nintendo Switch OLED model.
