IGN’s weekly Nintendo shows answers questions and shares impressions.
Weeeeelcooome to Nintendo Voice Chat, Episode 387 — our last news and impressions-focused NVC of the year. Don’t worry, we’ll return next week, but with a “Year in Review” focused special episode instead of our regular programming.
This week, Casey DeFreitas joins the panel as we talk about the latest game releases on Nintendo Switch (and some on 3DS), the awards Nintendo secured in our own annual “Best of Awards”, sales data from Japan, and Splatoon 2 and Arms updates, before answering many of your most burning questions.
As always, you can watch NVC here on IGN and on our YouTube channel (subscribe and hit the bell!) or listen to it on your commute in audio format. If you enjoy the show, share it with other Nintendo fans, make a constructive comment, and give us a thumbs up or leave us a review.
