It’s episode 92 of the podcast and in addition, this edition marks the 2nd anniversary of the dawn of the Gamers of the Lost Spark. Join the guys as they celebrate this milestone with their unique look at the gaming news of the last 7 days.

After some discussion about if we will see an up to now unrevealed big game on Switch between Arms and Mario Odyssey the conversation turns to ward the reveal of the Zelda Season Pass and the content therein (full details below). With the advent of a full fangled Tingle costume being a genius standout for the Sparks.
The question is, in a game world so big, will people want more, are the revealed features welcome and most importantly, does the lure of this extra content get you tingling enough to part with your rupees?
To hear what the guys think, listen in and enjoy the latest installment of the Lost Spark Podcast.
