This weekend marks the final Splatfest, a celebratory event in Splatoon that brings the community together in a giant team-based popularity contest, and the final battle is between Callie and Marie, the in-game pop idols who host the Splatfest competitions themselves.

We thought the opportunity was ripe on a recent episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, to look back on the past year of Splatfests to see what went well, what went wrong, and how Nintendo can improve them the next time they want a Splatoon game to make a big splash.

A listener sent us a question in a recent episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, asking about online features from some of last generation's games on Nintendo platforms. "There were quite a few games on the Wii and DS that had great Wifi modes," he asks. "Do you guys think Nintendo might ever consider revitalizing them on Virtual Console?"

A data miner known as "Random Talking Bush" seems to have discovered the three DLC characters left for Hyrule Warriors Legends. It's all unconfirmed, but given Random Talking Bush's history with leaking information, it looks like we're getting Toon Zelda in the Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks pack, and then Ravio and Yuga with the Link Between Worlds pack.

In the course of the past few weeks, The Pokémon Company has revealed numerous new Pokémon from Sun and Moon, including fan-favorites like Mimikkyu and not-so-popular ones like Bruxish. Not to mention dozens of new features we get to see on display in the latest trailer.

The CEO of Level-5 recently said that he believes Yo-kai Watch still has the potential to become a "huge phenomenon" here in the Western gaming markets, as it has already become in Japan. Whereas the first game sold fine, he says the second one is where it can really take off if they and Nintendo play their cards right.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild made an enormous splash when it was unveiled at E3 2016, but we here at Gamnesia have been thinking about the game for quite a while longer than that.

On a recent episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, we had a long discussion about what we hoped to see from Zelda U, as it was then called, when it would be revealed at E3.

Now that E3 has come and gone, we thought it would be fun to look back at that discussion and see what did and didn't play out in Breath of the Wild. Check out the discussion video after the jump for our full thoughts on what he hoped for in Zelda U and how it unfolded in Breath of the Wild, or keep reading for a brief, brief summary.

Word recently got out that Nintendo has unexpectedly abandoned the trademark for Hyrule Warriors, a collaboration with Koei Tecmo that combines Dynasty Warriors' gameplay with the universe of The Legend of Zelda. A video game company abandoning their trademark for a franchise is a rare event—Nintendo itself routinely renews the trademark for Eternal Darkness, an IP that hasn't seen the light of day in years. But it's especially shocking considering Hyrule Warriors is still an active property with more DLC still in development.

Nintendo has recently been trying to get people to think of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as what they call an "open air" game, rather than an open world game. While we're open-minded about this new direction, we see very little point.
