Amiibo Wave 4 is on the way, and they've been harder to find than any previous waves—including Wave 2, half of which is still sitting on a boat in the West Pacific. Nintendo's fans are getting increasingly fed up with the sound and fury of the Amiibo hunt, and many collectors have completely given up. Nintendo, meanwhile, is pretending there's no issue.

Banjo-Kazooie fans everywhere were so excited earlier this week when Phil Spencer said that there would be no trouble letting Banjo and Kazooie be playable characters in the ever-popular Super Smash Bros. There's been a huge surge in support for the bear and bird duo as a result, and now that fans can voice their own opinions through the Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot, it seems that the characters may finally have a real chance of joining the brawl.

But even though Microsoft would be okay with it, would Nintendo? Head inside for more.

Earlier this week, YouTuber Angry Joe got hit with a copyright claim by Nintendo and decided to boycott covering their games in protest of their YouTube Creator's Program's policies. That got us thinking: are these policies doing more harm than good for Nintendo?

The program is set up to allow Nintendo to make revenue off of YouTubers' coverage of their games, but as a result of their unconventional monetization policies, many YouTubers, like Angry Joe and PewdiePie, are refusing to cover their games. Not only is Nintendo now missing out on the publicity that other games get from these YouTubers' videos, but the company and their policies are actively getting bad press. Head inside for more.

Super Smash Bros. hype has risen back up thanks to last week's announcement of the Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot, and there are all kinds of fans vying for their favorite characters to win a place in Smash. Indie studios are pushing for their characters to join the battle, Microsoft says there's no issue with including the fan-favorite Banjo and Kazooie, and fans are making their own voices heard on Reddit and other polls. With all the excitement, your resident Nintendo experts here at Gamnesia thought we'd give our two cents on what characters we think will be DLC and why, how Nintendo will distribute it, and more.

We here at Gamnesia are bringing you a new episode of "Nintendo Week," a podcast made for Nintendo fans by Nintendo fans. This week had a huge bombshell when Nintendo announced plans to develop smartphone games, as well as their next-gen console, currently codenamed "NX." This week, we dig really deep into that during our discussion section, recap the rest of Nintendo's news week during our news segment, and answer questions that you guys asked during the debut of our Q&A block. It's an extremely meaty episode this week, so be sure to head inside and give it a listen!

We’ve been running a Nintendo-centric podcast called Nintendo Week on iTunes and YouTube for some time now. Typically, the podcast consists of a weekly news discussion and a more general discussion about any range of subjects—Amiibo, Nintendo’s smartphone plans, remakes we’d like to see on 3DS, to name a few, and we’ve got plenty of others in the pipeline. But this week, we want to introduce a third type of segment: a Q&A.

But of course, to do that, we need your questions! You can reference a piece of news, you could ask us about a game or series, you could ask us anything Nintendo-related that you want! Feel free to be as creative or specific with your questions as you want, because we’ll be answering the best of the best in a new segment on Nintendo Week this Wednesday!

To leave a question, just leave a comment on this page in Disqus. We’ll be reading through all of them (and even some questions on Facebook and Twitter), so don’t hesitate! And if someone asks a question you didn’t think of, but would like to see answered, go ahead and vote their comment up! The most popular questions have the highest chance of making it to the show.

As always, we break down the most recent week of news, tons of games that have been coming to, and going from, the Wii U eShop, exclusive Shovel Knight content on Nintendo platforms, Splatoon Amiibo that may be coming alongside the game, an incredible Super Mario 64 speedrun, and the Amiibo-only Smash Bros. tournaments that Nintendo has been holding in Japan. Unfortunately, we didn't have time this week for our popular discussion sections, but next week we're bringing you a super-sized episode, complete with a bonus round where we answer your candid questions!
