It's been a big week for Nintendo news, and as is (recent) tradition on Thursdays here at Gamnesia, we're here to give you a handy recap of everything that's happened. At the beginning of the week, Nintendo held their quarterly financial briefing, which reflects on their performance in the latest quarter of the fiscal year, and their plans for future business. But on top of all that, we got the normal number of stories, including information on Star Fox U and a fan study of which characters Japanese gamers want to see as DLC in Super Smash Bros. Head past the jump to check it all out!

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." This week, we talk about everything from Nintendo's recent financial briefing, as well as the potential for Smash Bros. DLC, and the long-term future of Amiibo! Head inside to tune in!

The other day, we introduced Nintendo Week, a new podcast by Nintendo fans for Nintendo fans to cover everything going on in the wonderful world of, well, Nintendo. We promised that the podcast would soon launch on YouTube and iTunes, and now they're both here!

Head past the jump to hear your three very handsome hosts sit down and discuss Nintendo's recent announcement that they plan to remake more games on Nintendo 3DS.

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 launching a brand new podcast called "Nintendo Week," and our mission is twofold. First, we hope to recap each week in Nintendo news while reminding you of relevant information you may have forgotten. In the second half of the podcast, we'll be doing more exclusive features—editorial discussions, fan Q&A sessions, and perhaps even interviews and exclusive reports down the line. And of course, we'll deliver it all with a signature charm that you've come to love here at Gamnesia. But of course, it's better to show than to tell, so if you're interested, you can head inside and listen to the first episode right now!

Those of you that follow the competitive Smash Bros. scene are well aware of the YouTube channel VGBootCamp. The channel's president, who goes by GimR, made a somewhat lengthy post on Smashboards, describing the future of Project M content on the channel. First, he describes the reasoning behind the discontinuation of the game's content, touting it as a legal "gray area".

Mutant Mudds, one of the Nintendo eShop's most renowned indie titles, proved a huge success to Renegade Kid back in 2012. Over the past few years, rumors spread of a sequel. Many devoted fans waited for word of the next title in the indie franchise, only to have their wishes granted with the reveal of Mutant Mudds Super Challenge, coming to both the Wii U and 3DS eShop later this year.

Now, even more details have surfaced regarding this new installment in the latest issue of Nintendo Force. Renegade Kid's co-founder Jools Watsham sat down to give us the gist of what to expect in Mutant Mudds Super Challenge.

If you've been wondering how the New Nintendo 3DS stacks up graphically compared to older Nintendo hardware — specifically Nintendo's Wii — search no further. A recent video from Nintendo World Report has given us a graphical comparison between Xenoblade Chronicles on New Nintendo 3DS and the game's platform of origin, Wii.

You can catch the comparison video after the jump.

Following Monday's reveal of the final rewards for the service, Club Nintendo's website has been practically unusable; users swamped the system in a mad dash to cash in their final coins for physical and downloadable goodies.

However, the service is now functioning properly for most users; I have been able to sign in, fill out some surveys, and cash in for some rewards with no problems. As far as I can tell, all of the physical goods are still available at the time of writing.

With their consumer feedback program coming to an end this June, Nintendo has been giving Club Nintendo the send off it deserves, by giving its users a free download code for Flipnote Studio 3D and promising a big batch of rewards at the beginning of February.

And that batch has finally arrived today, with people everywhere spending their last coins and stars on the massive collection of digital games and physical novelties that got added to the site.

So what are you going to be spending your last Club Nintendo points on? Head inside to tell us!

After the announcement of its closure, Club Nintendo members were eagerly awaiting February's round of rewards. They would be its last, after all, so one could assume that Nintendo would pull out all the stops in regards to both quality and quantity. Fortunately for some members (and unfortunately for others), today's new prizes are almost entirely digital, with a few physical ones to spice it up.

Hit the jump to see what you can expect to find, and how much it'll cost you!
