Nintendo Times Radio 37: E3 Hype Train

Welcome to another packed episode of Nintendo Times Radio. Can you believe that E3 is almost here? Much like Black Friday sales, each year E3 seems to start sooner and sooner, and this year EA kicks off the festivities with its press conference on Saturday, June 10. Since we don’t have another episode until then, we figured this would be a perfect time to dust off our crystal balls and predict what will be announced at this year’s big gaming show. You won’t want to miss that!

But first, we talk about some games! Craig’s back from Los Angeles where he played Destiny 2. James and Craig got a chance to play an hour of ARMS right before the recording, so listen in for their hot takes. Plus, Ben and Craig attended the Zelda symphony and have some impressions from that show as well!

Show Notes:

Nintendo Times Radio is a podcast covering the entire spectrum of the video game universe. Unlike the site, we often discuss games and topics unrelated to Nintendo. In other words, even if you’re not the biggest Nintendo fan out there, we hope you’ll find some value in our conversations and topics. Here’s what’s in store for this episode:
