Nintendo Times Radio 78: We Wish You A Merry Switchmas!

Happy holidays to you and your family. This marks the end of our third year podcasting! Where does the time go (well the majority of it goes into editing of course)? We want to sincerely thank all of our dedicated listeners over the years. Thanks to all of you who have sent in questions and comments to become a part of the show. We couldn’t do it without you.

This episode we chat about the latest games we’ve been playing as well as reveal the top selling games of November. Our feature is the mailbag, with a major focus on holiday memories. What games do you remember getting around this time of the year? Were you ever completely surprised by a video game gift you didn’t expect? Let us know in the comments or by sending an e-mail to! So, curl up by the fireplace, sip some hot cocoa, and settle in for a couple hours while we chat your ear off. Our next episode will be our favorite 18 games of 2018 – don’t miss it!



Don’t forget to send us your questions and suggestions to be featured on a future show via an e-mail or by getting in touch with us via Twitter. As always, please rate us in iTunes, and you can listen to us on Google Play Music!
