It’s been a slow week in the world of Nintendo, so we’re taking the opportunity to stop and smell the hive. This episode, we’re using Banjo-Kazooie coming to the Switch Online Expansion Pack as our reason to talk about everyone’s favorite 64-bit bear and bird adventure. Joining Brian this week is Game informant web designer and programmer Kristin Williams!
The All Things Nintendo podcast is a weekly show where we can celebrate, discuss, and break down all the latest games, news, and announcements from the industry’s most recognizable name. Each week, Brian is joined by different guests to talk about what’s happening in the Nintendo world. Along the way, they’ll share personal stories, uncover hidden gems in the eShop, and even look back at the classics we all grew up with. A new episode comes out every Friday!
