IGN's Nintendo Show is back! Host Jose Otero returns from vacation, and he's joined by Peer Schneider, Brian Altano, and Jared Petty to talk about Dragon Quest VII (finally!) River City Tokyo Rumble, Pokemon GO Plus, Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice, and hands on with the adorable NES Classic Edition. 

After the break, Jose, Brian, and Peer talk speculate on when and how Nintendo will reveal NX. It's the end of September, and Nintendo still hasn't shown it brand new hardware concept to the world. Join us as the core NVC crew makes its best guess on the pending announcement, assuming the release month of March 2017 does not slip.
