The Nintendo Entertainment Podcast is here once again, and with the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield now out for the guys to play it’s to get talking about the Pokemon World!

But first, the guys talk about their recent gaming exploits outside of Pokemon, including Todd definitively playing and beating Luigi’s Mansion 3, Will drowning in his backlog of games, and Tyler…well he just played Pokemon, but that’s ok!

Then, in the news, Pokemon has sold over 6 million copies already! We break down all the sales figures for all the regions! Then, The Game Awards have announced their Game of the Year contenders, and…Super Smash Bros Ultimate is on it? How does that work? Add to that, could Link be in Overwatch 2? And what gaming anniversaries are there right now? We break it all down!

Then, the NEP Secret Society assemble to bring forth their immediate feelings about Sword and Shield! What are the highs, the lows, the things that could be improved? There’s a lot to break down, but the guys are going to enjoy every minute of it!

So sit back, relax and enjoy the Nintendo Entertainment Podcast!
