In this weeks episode the NintendPals try out a brand new section for the show, they chat about some upcoming games including one that Myles found on a sketchy website and as always we talk about we’ve been spending our playing this week. Also Myles got drunk and played Mario Kart 8 again and Nick had an ill family member.
This week on the NintendPals podcast Myles and Nick discuss the latest Mario Kart DLC and 200cc mode – specifically how neither of them could work out how to actually access the thing. They also talk about various ways to either not spend money or save it and have another rant about the state of Amiibo stock.
A lot of people are talking about comments made recenly by Zelda Producer Eiji Aonuma and if you haven’t heard those comments yet:.
“I have an eight-year-old son myself at home, and quite recently he started playing ‘The Phantom Hourglass’ for DS, because when the software first hit the market he was too young,” Aonuma told the Guardian. “When he started playing with the boat, I told him: ‘In the next Zelda, you are going to be able to ride on the train.’ He answered: ‘OK, Dad, first boat, and then train? Surely next time, Link is going to fly in the sky … If many people make many speculations … some of them might be correct,” he teased. “Right now, I have to refrain from commenting on anything.”
That seems to me like he’s really hinting that there might be some element of flying in the next Zelda game. That seems like a random comment made during an interview, but it’s also one of those comments that seems like it wouldn’t even be discussed unless he was using it to say something. It’s a good bet that you’re going to be doing flying of some sort whether it’s on a bird, or in an airship of some kind is yet to be discovered.
Those folks at Nintendo are crafty about getting information out about games they’re not supposed to be discussing.
