Super NVC: Nintendo’s 3DS News Explosion
Welcome back to another fun and fancy free edition of Super NVC, IGN’s very own Nintendo-centric podcast. This week we’ve got Audrey “Hylian Hero” Drake (otherwise known as ME!!), Rich “The Stitch” George, Samuel “Wiki Wiki” Claiborn, and Jeremy “Something Funny” Parish. What a crew! Now let’s get down to business…
This week we take on all the exciting news from yesterday’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, as well as the 3DS showcase that followed. A new game set in the world of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past! EarthBound is actually coming to the Wii U Virtual Console! Yoshi’s Island 3DS is a thing that is happening! Mario & Luigi: Dream Team gets a release date, Animal Crossing gets a special edition 3DS XL, Bravely Default Flying Fairy is heading West, and much, much more. Oh, we also got to play a lot of these games, including Zelda: A Link to the Past’s sequel and Dream Team.
No, you’re not dreaming, and this is no April Fool’s joke. Hop aboard the NVC train as we discuss all this and more!
Oh, and hey, while you’re thinking of us, don’t forget to send your comments, questions and so on to email@example.com. We love hearing from you, and we’d like to start answering questions on air again soon. You can also reach us on our IGN blogs and Twitter. Fancy!
Without further ado, here’s the link for if you want to download the MP3 to listen to at the gym. Or at the bank. On a train? Maybe even on a plane. Before takeoff, that is. Don’t go killing yourself for little ole us.

Nintendo Nation: Reacting to the Flood of 3DS News
Nintendo Nation: Early Thoughts on the Zelda: A Link to the Past Sequel
Did you watch them? I hope so. Four out of five doctors agree that Super NVC and Nintendo Nation are good for your health. That fifth doctor is a jerk. And a Sony fanboy.
Until next time, Koopalings – Game On!
