Mario Golf: World Tour

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–When you see two round objects rolling your way, don’t be alarmed: They’re probably just a harmless golf ball and a familiar pink puffball. On May 2, the Mario Golf: World Tour and Kirby: Triple Deluxe games are launching in stores and in the Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. It’s a double dose of Nintendo! Both games are the next installments in their respective franchises and the first of their series on Nintendo 3DS. Both games also feature some of the most loved and iconic characters in the Nintendo universe. And, best of all, both games are ridiculously fun.

“May 2 is going to be an outstanding day for Nintendo 3DS owners,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Mario Golf: World Tour and Kirby: Triple Deluxe add two exclusive Nintendo experiences to the already-incredible library of software found only on Nintendo 3DS.”

ON THIS EPISODE: Some extensive talk about the Mario Kart series and why each entry isn’t just a copy-paste of the last permeates our first segment, plus some brief talk about Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition and Mario Golf’s demo squeeze in later on.

PLUS: Listener mail is our last segment of the day, in which we discuss what Wii games are good for tiny baby kids, how we feel about Nintendo’s season pass for Mario Golf: World Tour (and their DLC in general), and why Skyward Sword gets so much hate.
