Welcome to another episode of The Pure Nintendo Podcast! This week Jemma and Roger discuss everything to do with amiibos, from which ones we have to those we desperately want – and some ideas we wish Nintendo would take on board for new amiibos.

We also spend some time delving into the latest wave of Mario Kart 8 DLC, discussing our favorite tracks.

We cover the latest Nintendo news, including the release date for the TMNT Cowabunga Collection, as well as details of Tactics Ogre: Reborn, another remastered game from the SNES era.

It wouldn’t be a video game podcast without discussing what we’re currently playing, as Jemma and Roger talk about games like Boomerang Fu and Bassmaster Fishing 2022, along with arcade games..

Finally, to end the show, Jemma gives us her eShop gem for this week.

Check out our latest show below, or find the Pure Nintendo Podcast on any of your favorite podcast listings.

Our weekly podcast is where we disuss anything and everything Nintendo-related. If you’re a Koopa Kast fan, don’t worry – we’re still running this specialized podcast series as well, so stay tuned for more info about the next episode now that we’ve wrapped up our Zelda discussion.
