For years, fans of Nintendo's Mother series have been waiting for the third and final installment in the trilogy to release outside of Japan, but Nintendo has been far from eager. Now, nearly ten years after the game's release, the timing is perfect for the beloved classic to release in Western territories.

This is one of the subjects we cover on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo podcast here at Gamnesia. If you'd like to learn more about it, you can either watch the discussion video or keep reading after the jump!

Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata recently announced that he believes there's plenty of room for Nintendo 3DS' install base to grow, but it's already at fifty million sales, four years old, and there's only one first-party retail game in the upcoming launch schedule. Is the 3DS really poised to keep going, or is it running out of steam?

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.

As always, we break down the most recent week of news, including a new Pushmo game and some Fire Emblem news, thoughts on the 3DS' upcoming games (or possibly lack thereof), but perhaps most importantly, a ton of information about the NX and very vivid hints about what it entails. After the news, we go over some major Nintendo games that we haven't played—none of us know what's on each others' lists, so we're well prepared to shame the crap out of each other.

Nintendo recently revealed their strategy for mobile games, and while we don't know yet what they'll be, we do know who's in charge of them: Hideki Konno, an experienced Nintendo veteran who's produced Mario Kart for the last four entries and has an amazing track record in Nintendo's back catalogue of games. Most notably, he produced the Nintendogs series, which is famous for jumpstarting the Nintendo DS' explosion in non-gaming audiences back in 2005.

Now that he's in charge of their mobile development, we can expect great things from their teams. Head past the jump to learn more.

Satoru Iwata recently announced that Nintendo is considering expanding its franchises into film and "video content." Certainly this brings to mind recent whispers of a Netflix series based on The Legend of Zelda, but Nintendo's on to something much, much greater. This is one of the subjects we cover on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo podcast here at Gamnesia. Head past this jump to read all about our ideas, or give them a listen if you prefer video content—that, too, can be found after the jump.

Nintendo is reviving the Nintendo World Championships at this year's E3, but there may be more to it than we think. Of course E3 is a time when the companies announce their big plans, and with Zelda out of the picture, Nintendo doesn't have any heavy hitters that we know of. But more than that, the Nintendo World Championships played a major role in their North American announcement of Super Mario Bros. 3. Are they setting up to reveal something equally stupendous this time around?

Nintendo is the only major video game hardware producer that still region-locks its products; fans have been petitioning against the policy for years, but Nintendo hasn't budged. CEO Satoru Iwata was recently asked about this by investors, and he revealed that Nintendo is considering dropping region-locking with NX. Iwata says it's "unrealistic" to expect region-locking to go away on 3DS and Wii U, but he's optimistic about a change in the next generation.

Nintendo recently announced that it plans to expand its franchises into theme park attractions with the help of Universal Studios, an esteemed leader of the theme park industry. With the potential that opens up for the many worlds of Mario, Zelda, and more to be realized as theme parks, we at Gamnesia thought it'd be a great time to pitch our very own ideas for theme park attractions on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast.

Head past the jump to see our twelve listed ideas, and if you want to learn more, check out this week's discussion segment, also after the jump.

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.

As always, we break down the most recent week of news, including a Splatoon Direct, Amiibo supply news, and all about Nintendo's plans to expand not only into mobile games, but into movies, TV series, theme park attractions, and much more. We have tons of ideas for all of the above, so be sure to head past the jump and give this week's episode a listen!

We at Gamnesia went over our favorite characters on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo podcast here at Gamnesia, and if you know anything about me, you'd know that I had to give a hand to the one and only Waluigi. He's nasty, he'scheap, and unlike other cast members, his characterization is so over-the-top that he's become, in effect, a satire of himself—which makes him a far more effective comedic relief character than anyone else in the Mario games.

If you'd like to hear our love for the purple waaarrior, and why he makes excellent addition to the Mario crew, check out the video after the jump! Or if you prefer to text over discussion videos, head inside and you can keep reading.

There wasn't a great deal on Nintendo news last week, so we at Gamnesia had a pretty relaxed news section on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our dedicated Nintendo podcast. The extra time we had let us loosen up a bit and talk about some goofier Nintendo-related stories that have happened in the past week.

If you'd like to hear some silly stories, check out the discussion after the jump! Or you could find them in the article's link section, but reading them is a lot less fun than the listens and the laughs.

We at Gamnesia went over our favorite characters on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo podcast here at Gamnesia. We kicked off the discussion with three Zelda characters in a row and continued to give special shoutouts to a few more.

If you'd like to hear our love for these characters and more perspective on their many layers, head on inside! And if you're interested in hearing the whole character discussion, as opposed to just a few highlights, give our latest episode a listen, either right here at Gamnesia, or on your preferred iGizmodroid through iTunes!

Yooka-Laylee was fully unveiled last week in all its 3D-platforming goodness, and there was so much news that we dedicated ten whole minutes to go through and discuss it all on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo podcast here at Gamnesia. If you want a breakdown of everything we learned, head past the jump for a rundown, both in video and in list form!

We at Gamnesia went over our favorite characters on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo podcast here at Gamnesia. Professor E. Gadd and Toadsworth came up in the discussion, and we talked a bit about how Nintendo seems to be forgetting a lot of great Mario characters lately: neither of them—nor many other cast members—are playable in recent (or any) Mario Kart, Party, or sports games, and many haven't made an appearance in years. Head past the jump for more!
