Welcome to another episode of The Pure Nintendo Podcast! We start things off with our usual amiibo roundup. Our hunts are becoming more and more difficult, but there was a golden idol added to Jemma’s collection this week.

Next we discuss the recent news concerning Bayonetta’s voice actor. Hellena Taylor was vocal on Twitter regarding why she isn’t returning to the role for Bayonetta 3, and we take a look into what’s going on.

Next we dive into one of the most highly anticipated Switch titles of the year, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope. The game is out this week and Roger is reviewing it. He shares his thoughts on everything from the new setting, character weapons and moves, and side quests in this sequel title.

Jemma also talks about her latest review game, LEGO Bricktales. It’s a world apart from the likes of  other LEGO franchises like Star Wars and Harry Potter – in a good way.

Finally, Roger and Jemma look at a few recent titles that we find .. interesting, including Nickelodeon’s latest kart racer and the fact that multiple curling games exist for the Switch.

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. In fact, check out our  latest episode, all about Super Mario Bros.!
