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.

Yesterday was Nintendo's investors' meeting, which revealed tons of information about their upcoming year, so join Alex, Ben, and Colin as they sort through a mountain of news, including new mobile games for Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem and a ton of financial information. After the break, we discuss Star Fox Zero and its related animated short in the Game Corner before finishing off the show with a discussion segment on NX, Zelda U, and E3 2016, all of which Nintendo officially discussed. You can check out the episode below—or if you'd like to save it to listen later, you can check the latest episode out on iTunes, available now.

This Fall Nintendo plans to release two new mobile games based on Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem, franchises which they chose so they could "appeal to as many Nintendo fans as possible." Both titles will be "pure games" with "more prominent game elements" than Miitomo and will "tie closely" into the dedicated games on Nintendo's own platforms.

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 after the jump for our full thoughts, or head inside for a brief, brief summary.

Last week it was revealed, among many more details, that Pokémon GO features real-time battles instead of the turn-based battles the series' core games traditionally employ. Players can tap any of their Pokémon's four attacks to unleash it quickly, hold the attack down to charge it up, and swipe the screen to dodge an opponent's move.

Last week, industry insider Emily Rogers came forward saying that Nintendo, as many have come to suspect, is indeed bringing Zelda U to their upcoming platform, the NX. But that's not all, as the game will not only feature full voice acting for most of its characters, but the option between a male Link and a female playable Hero.

This was one of the talking points on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, where we took it to the Gossip Stone to see if it's a rumor to be believed. Check out the discussion video after the jump for our full thoughts on the concept and why we think it's true, or keep reading below for a brief, brief summary.

This past week, one of the writers from the studio behind Ben 10 took to Twitter to discuss their Mega Man cartoon series that's set to launch next year. Among other things, he said that the studio aims to "distill down the DNA of Mega Man" and urged fans not to prejudge the show before we've even seen anything of it.

Unconfirmed information recently arose suggesting that The Pokémon Company is auctioning off the movie rights to the Pokémon franchise, seeking a partner—the frontrunning bidders being Legendary Entertainment, Warner Bros., and Sony Pictures—with which to make a "big-budget, live-action Pokémon movie." This kind of idea immediately triggers flashbacks to the legions of horrible game-to-film movie adaptions in recent years, and even adaptions of other beloved childhood series like Transformers, Ninja Turtles, and more.

This was one of the talking points on this week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, and we think there's actually an opportunity to nail this film.

This week was filled to the brim with rumors, so join Alex, Ben, and Colin as we try to navigate the murky waters of this week's news cycle. Before the break we talk about Bayonetta's recent Smash Bros. controversies, the upcoming Mega Man cartoon, and much much more. After the break we head to The Gossip Stone to discuss several rumors, including whether NX is getting ports of four major Wii U games, Pokémon auctioning off its movie rights for a live-action film, and much more.

Pokémon has always released two games at a time with minor differences between them upon every new entry in its core series, and sometimes even expands upon both with a third installment. Recently Nintendo released another game in three different incarnations, Fire Emblem Fates, each version of which significantly diverged from the others in both story and gameplay.

On the most recent episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, a listener asked whether we think Pokémon should take inspiration with Fire Emblem Fates for its upcoming seventh-generation games and make each of its two versions more noticeably different. Check out the discussion video after the jump for our full in-depth response, or keep reading below for a brief, brief summary.

The EarthBound series hasn't had a new game since Mother 3 launched in Japan about ten years ago, and worldwide audiences haven't seen a new game since EarthBound itself launched in 1995. The genius behind the series, Shigesato Itoi, has repeated many times that he doesn't want to make Mother 4, but that doesn't necessarily mean Nintendo can't keep the franchise alive in other creative ways.

On the most recent episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, a listener asked what potential we think the EarthBound series could have for an open-world 3D game on current-gen hardware—and while there's probably nothing new coming for the EarthBound series any time soon, we saw a great opportunity to discuss several ways Nintendo could breathe life into the series.

The SNES Virtual Console on the New Nintendo 3DS is getting far more games in Japan than it is in the West, including three Fire Emblem titles which never made it overseas. We received a listener question with this in mind during the Mystery House segment on last week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, asking (with this in mind) whether Nintendo may be using this opportunity to localize some of these Japan-only games.

We recently got a ton of new screenshots, footage, and details about Star Fox Zero, the latter of which vaguely teased "a range of training missions" to help players accustom themselves to the game's controversial gyroscope and camera controls. But Alex says that's not all, as he's heard from those who have pre-release copies of the game that it includes a mode where the gyroscope is disabled by default, and you can hold the ZR button to re-enable it and shoot down enemies beyond your normal field of view—and the same claim's been corroborated by the Otaku Place.

The producer of Street Fighter, Yoshinori Ono, recently said that he wants to see a Nintendo Vs. Capcom game in the vein of Capcom's popular crossover fighting games like Marvel Vs. Capcom. He also added that he thinks it would be great to see Zangief and Blanka join the cast of Super Smash Bros.

Some time ago Nintendo filed a patent for a kind of gaming controller or other device that uses two analog sticks, two scrolling clickwheels, and nothing else but touchscreen controls to play its games. Since then, and not too long ago, the internet went wild (for good or bad) about "leaked" photos of an NX controller that looks strikingly similar to the concept. Though these "leaks" were ultimately exposed as hoaxes, the possibility is still real that Nintendo's making a device heavily based on this patent. And if that's the case, we should want to start understanding what it is and why Nintendo believes in it sooner, rather than later.

This was the discussion segment on last week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. Check out the discussion video after for our full in-depth thoughts on this kind of controller idea and why it could actually work!

Join the Nintendo Week crew once again as Alex, Ben, and Colin navigate the waters of being a Nintendo fan in these bizarre times. News includes Street Fighter's producer wishing for a Nintendo crossover game, Nintendo's whole new online infrastructure, and the recent controversies around Alison Rapp and her termination from Nintendo. After the break we check in on our recent gaming progress and then take some listener questions for the Mystery House, including subjects like a modern EarthBound game, Pokémon following the Fire Emblem Fates model, and how Nintendo can win back the youngest generation of gamers.

Many people have been hoping that The Legend of Zelda for Wii U will launch as a cross-platform game for both Wii U and Nintendo's upcoming platform, the NX. Others, however, have been wondering why.
