    Breath Of The Wild 2, Metroid, and Nintendo Direct Predictions | GI Show

    Breath Of The Wild 2, Metroid, and Nintendo Direct Predictions | GI Show

    Welcome back to a new episode of The Game Informer Show! We know what you're thinking, and yes, we are aware that Nintendo just put on a Xenoblade 3 digital showcase, but that won't stop us from hoping for more. Just like with Sony and Microsoft, we're brushing off our crystal balls and predicting what Nintendo will have at its big summer Direct...whenever that may be.


    Will The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's sequel make an appearance with a more concrete gameplay section and a name reveal? Will Nintendo continue to roll out its iconic characters on Switch with a new Donkey Kong game? Can we expect to see Samus in the form of the rumored Metroid Prime Trilogy port or the much-anticipated Metroid Prime 4? Only time will tell, but we hope today's podcast will be a fun distraction while we wait for the next big Nintendo Direct!





    Programming note: This week is a little funky with scheduling, so we'll return to our regular format with all the normal segments you love next week. Thanks for your understanding.

Still One Of The Best

The personalities and chemistry of the GI Podcast has always been the best part of Game Informer by a mile. My favorite part of Game Informer for over a decade has always been the podcast. Legends have come and gone and I hear new ones being formed. Thank you for being an easy choice for a weekly show to count on. Keep it up - great work guys!

THE podcast for everything gaming related

Been listening to the gi show for a few months and honestly is the best podcast for gaming. It has gaming news, questions, games to try out, question and answers. Everything you can ask for in a podcast. Special shoutout to the episode Drafting the best games of 2017, where Marcus mentioned doki doki literature club. I started playing it this past few days and wow, expectations were blown away.
