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.

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!

While the first game hasn't even launched in North America yet, Level-5 is already considering a Western release for Yo-Kai Watch 2; however, the release could be complicated because, much like the Pokémon games, there are actually three different versions of the game in Japan. According to chief operating officer Yukari Hayakawa, Level-5 is currently considering a few different ways to bring the game over; he stated that they could release all three versions, or just one, and that it could be either a digital or retail release. He also stated Amiibo support for the series is a possibility, but nothing has been confirmed.

Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash launches tomorrow, and reviews are starting to come in. Nintendo has previously stated that Zip Lash could be the last game in the series if it doesn't sell well, and if early reviews are indicative of the game's popularity, there's cause for concern. Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash is pulling in mixed reviews (currently averaging 68/100 on Metacritic). Most reviewers agree that it does little to stand out in the platformer genre, and some found its levels and gameplay repetitive. You can check out a round-up of reviews by clicking below.

Popular Wii U crossover game Hyrule Warriors is coming to 3DS next year as Hyrule Warriors Legends. The handheld version of the game features new content, including levels and characters from The Wind Waker and the recently-announced Skull Kid. Famitsu magazine recently published some details about the new content (you can check out scans of the article and a detailed breakdown here), and now Koei Tecmo has released a batch of screenshots (some of which overlap with the scans) showing off Skull Kid, Phantom Ganon, and more. Click below to check them out.

Many of you readers fancy collecting Amiibo, Nintendo's line of NFC figurines based on their world-famous characters. Those of you who do will know just how hard they are to come by, and those who don't likely can't escape hearing about it. But Nintendo's finally been taking some steps lately that seem to make it much, much better.

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 inside for a brief, brief summary.

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U recently received a major update that included new playable stages, new Mii Fighter costumes, and a balance patch. Unfortunately, it also included a glitch that made it impossible to grab Diddy Kong in certain circumstances. Nintendo quickly noticed the bug and began working on a patch, and today they launched it. Super Smash Bros. update version 1.1.2 is now live, and it should take care of that pesky Diddy Kong bug no problem.

The latest intro in the Chibi-Robo series is releasing very soon, and a couple of references to two of Nintendo's biggest icons have been spotted in the game. Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash includes a variety of collectibles, including various snacks as well as garbage items. One of the snack items is a PEZ dispenser, and it happens to be based on none other than Nintendo's mascot himself, Mario. There's also a more subtle reference in the form of a banana peel item. It appears to be just an ordinary banana peel, but its description mentions "a big gorilla riding a kart," a clear reference to the Mario Kart series and Donkey Kong in particular.

GameXplain has put together a video showing off these items, which you can check out after the jump.

Various sources are claiming that the announcement of the next downloadable character for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS is incoming. Tweets from Roger DiLuigi, a former Nintendo employee who now runs the Japan Time podcast, state that a major announcement from the company will be made within the next two weeks. DiLuigi, however, does not specify whether this big news is or isn't Smash-related.

Yesterday we were surprised with the announcement of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final, a pseudo sequel to Shin Megami Tensei IV that developer Atlus says is aiming to be "the number one RPG for the 3DS." As a follow-up to the initial reveal, popular Japanese video game publication Famitsu released a batch of screenshots today, showing off some of the game's characters as well as its level-up system.

The weekly hardware and software sales from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and PlayStation 4 had a huge sales surge. After selling just 4,000 units last week, PlayStation 4 sales skyrocketed to 46,000 this week (enough to beat out 3DS for the top spot) thanks to a sizable price cut and a handful of new games. Sony had a great week for software as well, as ten of the eleven new games to crack the top twenty this week (with some games counted twice on separate consoles) were on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, or Vita. You can check out the full breakdown by clicking below.

Smosh Games is back with another episode of "honest game trailers," the popular YouTube series that gets up close and personal with popular video games. This time around the target is Pokémon Diamond and Pearl for Nintendo DS. As you might expect, Smosh makes plenty of jokes about how Pokémon continues to pull in the cash by re-using essentially the same formula. The video then shifts gears as they give the "honest" names for each of the fourth gen Pokémon. Check it out by clicking below and let us know what you think.

Atlus has announced Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final, an upcoming sort-of kind-of sequelish follow-up to the original Shin Megami Tensei IV. The title isn't a remix or a game of the year edition or anything along those lines. The story will not only follow a new set of characters, but also a few returning ones from the original IV. The game will revisit the themes of SMTIV and feature improved gameplay mechanics. Most of the same team is returning too. However, Final sounds a whole lot more ambitious than its predecessor, as a producer says the team is aiming to make "the number one RPG for the 3DS." More inside.

Famitsu has revealed a few new characters that will be appearing in Bandai Namco’s strategy RPG/Fighter crossover Project X Zone 2: Brave New World.

Bison from Street Fighter, and even some characters that will appear in event scenes like Ada Wong from Resident Evil.

Listed below are the new characters that have been confirmed, the games they are from, and where you can expect to see them in the Project X Zone sequel. Hit the jump for more!
