Giraffe and Annika

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’re celebrating Super Mario’s 35th anniversary. The 3D All-Stars bundle is real, but there are some potential issues. Limited availability? Control schemes? Widescreen? Then a brand new Mario Kart (sorta) that’s gonna be the Xmas gift of 2020 (maybe), 3D World getting an updated port, a Super Mario Bros. semi-battle royale, and a lot more. Galen’s on vacation so Barry’s subbing in for him.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast we’re catching up on several recent releases. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is a mixed bag, Giraffe and Annika a charming little adventure, Sentinels of Freedom has highs and lows, and Spiritfarer is a character-driven delight. Then… the Nintendo Direct Mini. Neither Oni Dino nor Galen really cared about the games in the showcase, but that’s totally fine. Being disappointed is fine—we move on and play all the games that are already out or releasing soon. Those who are genuinely upset? That’s behavior that players should identify within themselves and reevaluate how they interact with entertainment media.

With how things are in 2020, video games have become more popular than ever, and even more so the ones that can help us escape and relax, be free from trouble, and still illicit exploration filled with joy and wonder. These kinds of titles have become somewhat of a safe haven for me. Games like Animal Crossing can personally help cope with all that’s been happening as of late, and now Giraffe and Annika adds itself to the list of releases made for escapism in the purest sense.

Ahead of its release next week, we have a look at Giraffe and Annika running on Switch. Take a look at some footage in the video below.
