IGN's Nintendo show returns! Join host Jose Otero, Peer Schnieder, and Brian Altano for a fun episode, as the crew discusses:

IGN’s Best of 2015 Awards
Splatoon won best shooter and best competitive multiplayer
Super Mario Maker won Best Wii U game
Zelda: Tri Force Heroes won Best 3DS game
 
Why Splatoon Should’ve Been IGN’s Wii U Game of the Year
 
If NX is a 2016 Product, Nintendo Needs to Start Talking About It Now
 
2016 could be a big year for...
  • Zelda (30th Anniversary)
    • Nintendo has three Zelda-related projects on the books. Hyrule Warriors Legends, Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, Zelda Wii U
    • First two new details dropped yesterday (max rupees count is higher and less tears to collect) based on Famitsu’s four pages of coverage. 
    • Amazon France claims Zelda; Twilight Princess HD will have the following features:
      • Hero Mode (duh)
      • Wii U GamePad will be used to manage the player’s inventory in real-time
      • Link, Toon Link, Zelda, and Sheik amiibo, when activated, replenish hearts or arrows
      • Wolf Link amiibo is set to unlock a new dungeon, which loosely translates as “The Cave of Twilight.” **This could be big** Reminder: This amiibo is tied to new Zelda. 
  • Metroid (30th Anniversary)
    • This week, Metroid Zero Mission is finally released on VC.
    • Question from Erik Osborne: "Even though I’ve been a big Nintendo fan for a long time, I've oddly never played a Metroid game outside of a few minutes here and there. I've been thinking of playing through the series due to there not being a lot of games. Would you recommend playing it in order of release, or chronological order story-wise? Thanks, love the podcast."
    • Will Metroid Prime: Federation Force return?
    • Will Samus return in 2016?
  • Pokemon (20th Anniversary)
    • Japan is getting Four Poke-themed 2DS bundles
    • US and EUR are getting special New 3DS and 2DS bundles respectively
