NVC Episode 378: Nintendo Sales and System Update 4.0.0

Welcome back to Nintendo Voice Chat! It’s the calm before the storm: we’re only a week away from Super Mario Odyssey, can you believe it? In episode 378, a savage Andrew Goldfarbe seems to discuss his adventure trying to capture an elusive Pokémon in Texas, Nintendo’s September 2017 hardware sales, and of course the 4.0.0 update. Andre joins Zach “Mr. Moiré” Ryan, Brian Altanoand Peer Schneider to break down many of the new games coming to Switch and 3DS this week and Sony’s interesting new foray into indie game publishing, which includes the introduction of Tiny Metal on Nintendo Switch.
