There are tons of gaming enthusiast podcasts out in the wild, but almost none of the top-tier podcasts are made specifically for Nintendo fans. That's where we come in! We here at Gamnesia are bringing you a new episode of "Nintendo Week," a podcast made for Nintendo fans by Nintendo fans.

This week, we discuss the latest Smash Bros. update, which adds three DLC slots to the character roster, the fall of Chibi-Robo, the fall of Nintendo as one of the world's most valued brands, The Pokémon Company's most unreasonable lawsuit, and the improving landscape of Amiibo hunting. You can check out the jam-packed episode below—or if you'd like to save it to listen later, you can check the latest episode out on iTunes, available now. And be sure to head past the jump if you want to read more on the stories we discuss.

If some of your favorite Game Boy classics haven't been released on Nintendo's 3DS and Wii U eShops yet, you probably shouldn't hold your breath. Publisher Natsume was asked about the chances of their game Tail 'Gator releasing on 3DS Virtual Console, and they replied by stating that Nintendo has moved on from Game Boy games on Virtual Console. Natsume later clarified that they can only confirm that this is true of their games, but Nintendo's support of Game Boy games on Virtual Console has been lacking for quite some time now, so this may be a universal decision. 

Zelda fans were delighted to hear that the fan-charite Skull Kid, the face behind Majora's Mask, is joining the cast of Hyrule Warriors for its 3DS launch in 2016. He uses an ocarina as his primary weapon, accompanied by Tael, and attacks with a host of dark magic abilities.

This is one of the subjects we discussed on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. Be sure to check out the discussion video after the jump for our full thoughts, or keep reading for a brief, brief summary.

With September in the rear view mirror, we are now halfway through the fiscal year of April 1st, 2015 - March 31st, 2016. While Sony is dominating the global market with the immensely popular PlayStation 4, Nintendo is still on top in its home company of Japan. Market share data for the first sixth months of the fiscal year is in, and Nintendo games make up 32.1% of software sales on dedicated gaming devices. The next closest publisher is Level-5, trailing behind substantially with 11.9%, followed by Square Enix at 11%. You can check out the top ten by clicking below.

While the physical release dates for Shovel Knight have been announced, Yacht Club Games has unfortunately had to cancel their plans for the Xbox One retail version. Citing "publishing policies on [Xbox One] that are totally beyond [the company's] control," the studio announced the cancellation yesterday (October 8). Elaborating no further on the issue, Yach Club says they'll "keep fighting" for the release to eventually become a reality, but for now the project is "in indefinite limbo."

Since its launch a little over a month ago, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has captivated me to the point where I've almost forgotten to eat at times because I was trying to stealthily rescue a prisoner or two from a heavily guarded base. As a single-player experience, it gives me the freedom to approach missions however I want, something I feel really sets it apart from anything I've played before. So you can imagine my excitement when Metal Gear Online launched a few days ago. Finally, I was going to be able to have this sort of experience with my friends! But then, I got to thinking, "Is it possible for single-player games to successfully transition into multiplayer?"

Shovel Knight's physical release date has finally been decided upon. Yacht Club games had to push back their expectations when their Plague of Shadows downloadable content took longer in development than expected (the DLC will be packed in for the physical release). It will now launch on November 3 in North America and October 30 in Europe for $24.99 USD (and for those who pre-ordered it at its original $19.99 price point, don't worry—you won't have to fork up that extra $5.00). Unfortunately the date for the Shovel Knight Amiibo still hasn't been decided on, but Yacht Club is considering making it available for pre-order.

Dengeki PlayStation published its 600th edition this week, and to celebrate there was a massive Q&A with different developers from Capcom. One portion of the interviews dealt with games currently in development, and despite what most fans were hoping for there seems to be a lack of focus toward a new Devil May Cry title or an offline mode for Dragon's Dogma. There is, however, effort being put into Resident Evil 7

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the sequel to 2011's Human Revolution, which saw a great deal of success and birthed many new fans of the franchise. Despite its impressive reviews and love from the fans, there is always room for improvement, and that it seems the team at Eidos Montreal has taken that philosophy to heart. Earlier today, the team at Outside Xbox revealed some new gameplay footage that displays six changes to the Deus Ex formula that they're excited for, and they're sure to get the rest of the fanbase talking as well.

Evolve, 2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios' 4v1 shooter, might be getting the Ultimate Edition treatment, if a listing on Amazon is to be believed. Evolve Ultimate Edition, according to the listing, will release on November 3rd for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Further details are sparse, as the listing doesn't detail what special perks, such as DLC, Evolve Ultimate Edition might include, nor is there any mention of a PC version.

Women’s UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey says she wants a rematch in Mario Kart 8 against the host of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon. Rousey had lost to Fallon earlier in the year, but on last night's episode of The Tonight Show, Fallon said that he owes her a rematch after he "mopped the floor" with her in their last encounter.

PlayStation 4 recently got a price cut in Japan (and it will soon receive a price cut in North America as well), boosting its sales from 4,000 to 46,000 in a week and shooting it straight up to the top of the charts. This strong week helped life-to-date sales of PlayStation 4 in Japan reach 1.8 million, which is up from 1.5 million in June. By comparison, Wii U (which launched over a year earlier) has just eclipsed the 2.6 million mark. PlayStation 4 has sold below expectations in Japan, so it will be interesting to see if the lower price point provides long term momentum or just a short boost.

Valve's Steam Machines are launching on November 10, but if you want to have them, you have to head over to a GameStop location near you. If you live in the United Kingdom, the Machines are exclusive to GAME UK, and in Canada you'll have to head over to EB Games, which is owned by GameStop, in order to get your hands on them. Valve's Steam Machines are basically just a pre-made gaming PCs, and there will be a bunch of different versions that have different computing power and, as such, also different pricing. Just like the Machines, the Steam Controller is also exclusive to these retailers.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes will be releasing worldwide in two weeks for the Nintendo 3DS, but for fans in the Land of the Rising Sun, Nintendo has decided to give them a taste of what's to come. Just like Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Pokémon: Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the latest handheld Zelda can be previewed through a downloadable multiplayer demo, with Japanese 3DS owners receiving three codes for themselves and two of their friends.

In a similar fashion to the Splatoon Global Testfire event, however, the demo will only be active during select periods. Read on after the jump for the schedule!
