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.

Join Alex, Ben, and Colin as they discuss a megaton of news from E3 through now, including Nintendo's comments on Link's gender, hints that Pokkén Tournament is getting three DLC fighters, Nintendo's comments on remastering olderPaper Mario games, actual news about the NX for once, and the idea of several Zelda spinoffs, starring Sheik, Zelda and more. And partway through the show, listen in as we ask whether we should continue to consider Nintendo a video game company, or start to think of them as an entertainment company instead.

It's every Pokémon fan's most passionate argument: if every starter Pokémon were to throw down in an eighteen-monster battle royal, which one would reign supreme? We took the discussion to a recent episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, in the form of a debate game that we call the Glitz Pit.

We wanted to have a little more fun with it than just living out the Pokémon metagame, so we're stripping away RPG rules like stat calculations and instead using a ruleset more like the anime, considering the Pokémon's biology, PokéDex entries, and more to determine the winner.

Join the Nintendo Week crew as Alex, Ben, and Colin discuss everything that is Nintendo's E3 2016, from Zelda: Breath of the Wild to Paper Mario: Color Splash, the Waluigi Amiibo, and so much more.

We at Gamnesia had a discussion about the upcoming Legend of Zelda game on last week's episode of Nintendo Week—our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia—and we wanted to compare the Zelda series to other modern AAA games to see how we think Nintendo should evolve the series. Many of today's most influential games, like Grand Theft Auto, Batman's Arkham titles, and The Witcher series are developed in the West, and there's a particular trend we notice in these games' combat compared to Zelda's: it just doesn't feel right to us.

After the break we discuss our hopes and dreams for Zelda U one last time before E3 and then head to The Glitz Pit to debate which fully-evolved starter Pokémon would triumph in a massive battle royal.

Tatsumi Kimishima recently discussed Nintendo's movie plans at length, revealing that Nintendo is looking into making more video content beyond just movies, and they're open to partnering with other companies to make it happen. This was in direct response to a question about the infamous Super Mario Bros. movie, and because of that movie, Kimishima hints that they'll avoid live action films. Kimishima strongly intends on having the first release ready in under five years. What franchises they'll be using is top-secret—Kimishima understands there's a strong demand for a Zelda movie, but he dodged the question whether it will be Mario or Zelda by saying they want to use IP that everyone can enjoy.

DeNA, Nintendo's partner in mobile gaming, recently held an investors meeting where they announced that the upcoming mobile games based on Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing will both be free-to-play. This begs the question, of course, how they're going to monetize them.

Nintendo has updated its Articles of Incorporation to prepare for "business diversification" as they enter the movie industry, license their characters, and more. But there were two standout additions in these documents: "Development, manufacturing and sale of medical devices and health devices," which is obviously referring to their QOL initiative, and "Development, manufacturing and sale of computer software."

Last week, Tatsumi Kimishima said that that Nintendo would like mobile games to work together with traditional Nintendo hardware—and when the interviewer asked if this meant Nintendo 3DS, Kimishima said "I don't think you'd be wrong to imagine such." He also made it clear that mobile games are often monetized too little, making no money, or too much, hurting their fans, and he says Nintendo's working hard to find a "safer middle ground that can satisfy everyone."

Some people have been wondering lately whether the NX will use cartridges instead of discs, and their curiosity isn't entirely without merit. A recent report from Japan says the president of Macronix, which is the company who supplies Nintendo with their ROM game cards for DS and 3DS games, expects their shipments of ROM chips to increase thanks to the release of the NX next March.
