This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, special guest Barry (Goodman?) is back to chat with Oni Dino and Galen in this extra-long, bonus episode! Nintendo Switch is at 62 million units sold, but will they keep the momentum with the PS5 and Xbox Series X coming soon? What will happen to third-party support moving forward and how should Nintendo prepare for it? In the Adventure Log, Barry elaborates on the appeal of the Legend of Heroes series and the Trails of Cold Steel sub-series and why the third entry is a good jumping-in point, and Galen tries out shell-swapping his Switch Pro Controller. In the news, Pikmin 3 Deluxe was announced, bringing up the topic of full-priced Wii U ports; Blizzard employees rally for fair pay and better working conditions; and Aeon Must Die has serious allegations against it from the original devs.

Skully is a 3D platformer that struggles to get the ball rolling on Switch. It might remind Nintendo fans of early N64 platformers that experimented with what the genre could be. Skully keeps things simple but introduces a few new ideas that make it stand out from the platforming crowd. Unfortunately for Switch players, it looks like it belongs on the N64, too. Skully is a perfectly enjoyable little game with appealing art direction and some inventive mechanics, but it’s let down by an extremely lackluster Switch port.

The original Crysis was one of the most technically impressive games on the PC when it debuted back in 2007. At the time, no one would have predicted that it’d be on a Nintendo console, let alone in handheld form. Yet with Crysis Remastered, the series has now come to Switch and you can play the game anywhere you like.

Prior to Crysis Remastered’s launch on Switch, we spoke with project lead Steffen Halbig. We chatted about a number of topics, including how this new release came about and what it’s been like bringing the game to Nintendo’s system. We also have reconfirmation that more patches are planned to add even more to the Switch version and improve it further.

Here’s our full discussion:
