The four new Zelda 30th Anniversary amiibo are now available and Nintendo has announced just how they'll work in the upcoming Zelda title, Breath of the Wild. There is a random number of certain items received depending on which amiibo is scanned. But wait, there's more!

Welcome back to the podcast. Like Nate said, this week's podcast is broken up into several different parts, for better or worse. In this one, we discuss what games could really make a bang for the Switch's launch. As we know, it's important for a console to have a good set of launch games, otherwise, ti might flop. Which game should that be, though? Mario? Zelda? Splatoon? Something else? We also address whether or not it is worth it for Nintendo to continue to add games to the Wii U virtual console. Find out our opinions and more on today's section of the podcast! As is the case with our predictions video and the rest of this podcast, it's just Nate and I!

In the past few weeks, the gaming community has been in an uproar from the hype of the release of the newest Pokémon games and the anticipation of the teased Breath of the Wild. It's as if Nintendo has been at a nonstop rampage of enthusiastic reveals for their loyal fans. To add more fuel to the already excited fire, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime will be starring on The Tonight Show... 

Pokémon Sun and Moon have had record breaking sales this past week as the newest addition to the Pokémon franchise. Both games dominate the 3DS eShop charts, as the first and second most downloaded software. But our beloved Zelda games are not absent from the sales list. In fact, there are quite a few notable titles to be found. First up, we have the very first Legend of Zelda taking the third spot, right behind Sun and Moon. Right below that at number four sits Zelda: Link's Awakening DX...

In the second trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild that was shown at The Game Awards 2016, Nintendo Treehouse staff were shown doing a trial shrine challenge, and their stamina bar was shown to be a bit different then what we've seen before... 

Containing a new NPC, new enemies, and some brand new combat footage, Breath of the Wild was shown off for a second time at The Game Awards 2016. We see Link talking to a minstrel who gives him a hint as to where a shrine is, as well as a rather large enemy guarding the entrance to something. Bill Trinen wouldn't give a release date more specific than 2017, but let's hope we'll get to experience this brand new adventure in March...

A flying or floating entity was spotted during the E3 2016 demo for Breath of the Wild. Some surmised it was a floating island, as it was so far away, it was impossible to see what it was for sure. Others insisted they saw it moving, and it turns out it was. That flying entity is in fact a ship, which Link was brought to by a rather large bird in the new trailer shown during The Game Awards...

Throughout 2016, and even before 2016, there's a lot of games that have gone throughout a 'tough' development period. They've been confirmed for a certain year, and then delayed, and delayed again, and sometimes even delayed again.

At The Game Awards 2016, the world was introduced to a new trailer of the most anticipated game, Breath of the Wild. The game, which shows the ruins of a possible Castle Town, may have occurred after a terrible war or cataclysm. New footage of the trailer is possibly hinting that the game itself is a sequel to Twilight Princess...

Screenshots were taken during the new Breath of the Wild trailer from The Game Awards. One particular screenshot showed Link riding through a possible surviving village as he rides on his horse. At his side is a cute, little puppy that may be foreshadowing interaction with different wild and domesticated animals...
