In this week’s episode of the Game Informer Show, the team excitedly outlines some major reveals from yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, including the flying machines in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and a collection of Game Boy games that launched yesterday on Nintendo Switch alongside a surprise release of Metroid Prime Remastered. Following news of a canceled single-player Titanfall game set in their shared universe with Apex Legends, the guys speculate on what happened to the project and share their thoughts on what the game could have been like.
During The Playlist, we discuss the first hour of Octopath Traveler II, Goldeneye 007, Metroid Prime Remastered, and The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap.
