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 we discuss news from the past week, including tons of news about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Sonic the Hedgehog's future, Yacht Club's next game, Microsoft's attempt to partner with Nintendo, and a trademark that suggests NX uses cartridges instead of discs. After the break comes the Mystery House, where we answer your listener questions about our favorite characters, online services, and more. To close it all off we hold a long listener-suggested discussion about Nintendo's digital practices and the disappointment that is My Nintendo.

Shigeru Miyamoto recently said that Nintendo is working on "a new kind of Mario" for their upcoming system, the NX. What this means, we have very little idea so far, but he said they'll hopefully have something to show the world at E3 2017—and that makes the early days of the NX interesting in so many new ways.

This was one of the talking points on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. Check out the discussion video above for our full thoughts, or keep reading below for a brief, brief summary.

Nintendo has considered making Zelda spinoff starring Sheik, which is something many fans have wanted to see for a long time. In an interview with GameRant, Miyamoto himself specifically said it's "not an impossibility." The same was said about a Princess Zelda spinoff game, but Sheik is the one who they've been actively thinking about.

The director of Paper Mario: Color Splash, Risa Tabata, recently said that Nintendo would "have to consider" remastering an older game in the series like Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door if they heard enough fans asking for it.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has blown gamers away since it was revealed at E3 2016, but before its reveal there was one big discussion happening in the community: should players be able to choose between male and female playable characters? It turns out there's no gender option in Breath of the Wild, but Aonuma specifically designed Link to appear androgynous so both men and women can relate to the character.

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 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 older Paper 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.

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.

Join Alex, Ben, and Colin as they discuss tons of news about Pokémon Sun and Moon, the upcoming Mega Man cartoon, Nintendo's E3 plans, and more, before addressing two big rumors from the past week: Nintendo's NX supporting virtual reality, and Mario Kart 8 getting a new pack of DLC. 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.

The Legend of Zelda is getting its next major installment next year, and many of us at Gamnesia have been turning to past games to scratch our Zelda itch and better understand the kind of game we want the next Legend of Zelda to be.

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.
