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:
