In this week’s episode of The Game Informer Show, the crew excitedly outlines a few big reveals from yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, including flying machines in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and a collection of Game Boy games being released on Nintendo Switch yesterday alongside a surprise launch of Metroid Prime Remastered. Following news of a canceled single-player Titanfall game set in its shared universe with Apex Legends, the guys speculate about what happened to the project and share their ideas for what the game could’ve looked like.
During The Playlist, we discuss the first hour of Octopath Traveller II, Goldeneye 007, Metroid Prime Remastered, and The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap.
