Nintendo Times Radio 63: E3 2018 Predictions

Welcome to the calm before the storm! That’s right, E3 2018 is just around the corner and we deliver our predictions straight into your brain. We think we’ve got everything nailed down this year, but you might want to listen to our predictions from last year to see how our track record is!

Also in this episode we chat about a bunch of different games (lots of Destiny 2: Warmind talk) and we dive into April’s NPD sales results, plus much more.

Our next episode arrives early! We’ll be reporting daily as E3 kicks off on Saturday, June 9. We’ll have at least six (!) episodes to discuss what we thought of the big conferences. We hope you’ll join us for each and every one!

 

 

Don’t forget to send us your questions and suggestions to be featured on a future show via an e-mail or by getting in touch with us via Twitter. As always, please rate us in iTunes, and you can listen to us on Google Play Music!

SHOW NOTES:

Nintendo Times Radio is a podcast covering the entire spectrum of the video game universe. Unlike the site, we often discuss games and topics unrelated to Nintendo. In other words, even if you’re not the biggest Nintendo fan out there, we hope you’ll find some value in our conversations and topics. Here’s what’s in store for this episode:
