Yesterday's Nintendo Direct dumped a fresh batch of new Nintendo Switch games for us to talk about, particularly Arms, Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. But that's far from all of them with several Sonic titles, more NeoGeo arcade classics than you can shake a JoyCon at, and much more.

We also review the newly released Nindies, Graceful Explosion Machine and Mr. Shifty, and catch up on all the Nintendo Switch news and new releases from the past 2 weeks.

We review the rumors that were true as well as the dirty lies and how they affected things, what Nintendo did right, what didn't go as expected, and what you listeners have to say about the whole shabang.

The big week is here! KC and JV share tales of getting their Nintendo Switch pre-orders (some more harrowing than others), and watching the Nintendo Switch Presentation that revealed loads more information about how the system will work.

Of course we got plenty of new game teasers to talk about too, but we're saving many of the games for a special bonus episode coming next week where we'll take on the whole 8-hour long Nintendo Treehouse! And as always, we also answered a pile of questions sent in by the listeners.
