This week on the Pure Nintendo Podcast, Jemma, Kirk, and Trev get into more Pikmin goodness, Disney’s new Illusion Island, classic Zelda titles, and much more!

The highlight of last week’s show was Pikmin 4, and we continue our conversation on this amazing new entry to the series. Trev has also been tinkering with Hey! Pikmin, which actually celebrated its 6gth anniversary on 28 July.

We also discuss two new Nintendo Switch Online entries, namely The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Season and Oracle of Ages. These classic top-down adventures spark an update on our time in Hyrule – what’s that? Did Jemma manage to conquer a temple this week?

We also talk about a pair of new eShop titles that look interesting. Disney Illusion Island is a throwback to Mickey’s classic ’90s platformers with a new aesthetic twist. Meanwhile, Venba is a special-lloking indie title that blends cooking sim gameplay with a deep and emotional narrative.

We round out the show by discussing the games we’re playing at the moment. Trev gives an update on Zen Pinball FX, which seems to have compromised quality for realism in this latest outing. Kirk is playing an RPG called Cross Tails, while Jemma is delving into the Shakespearean-JRPG crossover know as This Way Madness Lies.

That’s a lot to cover, and we hope you enjoy the show! Don’t forget to like and subscribe to the channel, and if you leave a comment or question, we’ll answer it next week.

Until next time, game on everyone!
