ARGcast #16: Nintendo NX Details and More Sonic!

Are the rumors true? David, Robert, and special guest Bill Gardner discuss the latest rumblings about Nintendo’s next console. How well can a handheld/home console hybrid work? Will it help Nintendo bounce back from the Wii U’s failure? Let us know your thoughts also! argcast@retrozap.com

We also get into the return of Sonic the Hedgehog to his Genesis roots with Sonic Mania. How is this any different from the last attempt with Sonic 4? Also, how likely is Project Sonic 2017 a direct sequel to Sonic Generations? Will any of this help in Sega’s campaign to make their spiky blue mascot relevant again? According to one listener, he always has been. You’ll want to listen up for this amazing story.

Our last topic has us celebrate the closing of San Diego Comic-Con 2016 by bringing up noteworthy comic book themed retro titles. How many non Marvel and DC games can we come up with? Which ones are your favorite? Tweet us @ARGpodcast and let us know!
