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 they discuss Kimishima's recent interview with Asahi Shimbun, where he discussed tons of information on Nintendo's plans for filmmaking, mobile games, and the NX, as well as news on Yooka-Laylee, Hyrule Warriors, and more. After the break, we have a long Game Corner segment where we not only touch upon tons of games, including Captain Toad, Minecraft, and more, but we discuss the lessons Zelda U can learn from The Wind Waker, as well as other games like Dark Souls, The Witcher, and more.

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. And be sure to head inside to get a rundown of all the Nintendo news from the last week!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was one of the biggest movies in the world last year, and soon it will be the latest in the lineup of popular LEGO video games. Releasing on June 28th, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens lends the constructive fun of LEGOs to the iconic characters and settings of Star Wars, and it will even include new story information that wasn't in the movie! Warner Bros. recently kicked off a new series of character vignettes with a video that starred Poe Dameron, and today they're back with a new video that focuses on Stormtrooper-turned-rebel Finn.

It's been a long time in the making with multiple delays along the way, but Mighty No. 9 finally has a (hopefully) concrete release date of July 21st. Developed by Mega Man co-creator Keiji Inafune and his team at Comcept, Mighty No. 9 aims to be a worthy spiritual successor to the Blue Bomber's series. Ahead of its release next month, publisher Deep Silver has released a new "Masterclass" trailer that focuses on the game's dash mechanics, combos, and upgrade system.

Nintendo hasn't announced any kind of Nintendo Direct event for E3, but this week they revealed that on June 14th, the day they usually hold their show, Reggie will introduce Treehouse Live, where they'll be live streaming footage of Zelda U all day. They'll also be holding a presentation for business partners on the same day, though we don't know many of the details.

This was one of the talking points on last 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 keep reading for a brief, brief summary.

The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was a pretty disappointing week overall. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End retained the top spot for the week (despite selling only just over 20,000 units), and no new titles were able to break 10,000 sales. DOOM debuted at number seven with just over 6,000 sales, and Battleborn came in eleventh place with just over 5,000.

Hardware sales were equally disappointing this week, as nearly every console sold less than the previous week. In fact, there wasn't a single console that managed to sell 20,000 units this week. PlayStation 4 retained its spot atop the charts with 18,430 units sold for the week. You can check out the full breakdown by clicking below.

If you're in the New York area (or love road trips) and you're bummed that you can't attend E3 and go hands-on with the upcoming Legend of Zelda game for Wii U and NX, we've got some great news! Nintendo has announced that the Nintendo NY store will be demoing the highly-anticipated title during a six day long special event. 500 lucky fans will get to be among the first people in the world to play the new Zelda game, and the best part is that it's free! Hit the jump for more details.

Super Mario Maker has been out for a while now, but Nintendo has continued to keep the game consistently fresh by adding in new costumes for Mario to don via Mystery Mushrooms. Most of these are based on characters from other games, but sometimes Nintendo draws from outside the gaming industry and uses other icons—and that's exactly what they're doing with the next set of costumes. Coming soon to Japan, and doubtless to the rest of the world shortly thereafter, Mario Maker fans will be able to play as merchandising mascot Hello Kitty! Joining her will also be My Melody, a similarly merchandise-focused character from the same company as Hello Kitty.

Back in March, Nintendo announced that Paper Mario: Color Splash would be releasing on the Wii U later this year. Currently, the game is available for preorder at Amazon, but the game's listing on Amazon could suggest that we will be seeing multiple editions of it at launch. Amazon's listing for the game refers to it as the "Standard Edition," which seems like an unnecessary distinction if there is only one version of the game. This has led many to believe that there could be some sort of special edition version of the game, possibly with new Amiibo or some other kind of pack-in. However, it could be a mistake on Amazon's part, or it could be their way of distinguishing between the retail and digital versions.

Nintendo recently reorganized their internal structure, forming a new Audit and Supervisory Committee and introducing a new Executive Officer system that includes Reggie Fils-Aime and Satoru Shibata. We understand a lot of news regarding corporate structure can be hard to understand, so we discussed this news on a recent episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. Check out the discussion video after the jump for our full thoughts, or keep reading inside for a brief, brief summary.

Mario Hoops 3-on-3 is a small Nintendo DS title based on short six-person basketball games, similar to those found in Wii Sports Resort. It was developed by Square Enix back in 2006.

Nintendo has just released a trailer to announce that Mario Hoops 3-on-3 is coming to the Wii U Virtual Console in Europe on Thursday, May 26th. There are no plans to bring the game to North America as of yet.

Pokkén Tournament is certainly an interesting foray of the Pokémon franchise into the genre of fighting games. The traditional Pokémon gameplay consists of turn-based battles traditional to RPGs, so making this game appealing to Pokémon fans who had never touched a fighting game before required a specific approach. Director and chief producer Katsuhiro Harada, director Haruki Suzaki, and producer Masaaki Hoshino recently shared some of their thoughts on this process in an interview with Famitsu.

It's been over two months since the Pokémon fighting game Pokkén Tournament launched on Wii U, and almost a year since the game released in Japanese arcades. In a recent interview with Famitsu, the game's developers stated that they have received mostly positive reactions about Pokkén from gamers in Japan and other parts of the world since launch, with only a few negative reactions. They also stated that many players have asked them to "keep raising the franchise," which game director and producer Katsuhiro Harada took to mean that players want them to add more Pokémon to the game; he stated that players also want them to continue managing the user base and holding events.

One of my most anticipated games coming out this summer is Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE. Though it's still a month out from launch, fans can get their hands on a demo at Nintendo NY this Thursday. The event will run from 4:30-7:00 PM EST and is free to attend, though you must register prior to going. In addition to getting an early hands-on look at the game, participants will get some fun Nintendo items just for showing up! If you're in New York City on Thursday and have even a passing interest in the game, you may want to consider going!

The most recent issue of Famitsu, one of Japan's most prestigious gaming publications, featured an interview with the team who created Pokkén Tournament, the arcade-style crossover between Pokémon and Tekken. One of the subjects touched on in the interview was the usage ratio of the different Pokémon who make up the game's roster. According to the game's producers, the team was worried before release that the power balance between the game's characters had been miscalculated. However, they were relieved to see that characters are being used at pretty even rates and that none of the Pokémon in the game seem to be particularly overpowered.

Most of the many skin packs for the console editions of Minecraft just provide players with a batch of new character textures based on familiar characters. The recent Mario skin pack for Minecraft: Wii U Edition, however, is more of a complete graphical overhaul. One might imagine that the creative minds at Nintendo directed Minecraft's developers to handle the pack with the greatest care to quality and amount of content, and while that seems like a move characteristic of the highly image-conscious Nintendo, it isn't quite true.
