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.
This week, we discuss Nintendo’s comments about bringing their various franchises to film, Nintendo’s push for third-party support on NX, hidden files in
Super Mario Maker, and our final thoughts about Super Smash Bros. DLC before the Fighter Ballot closes this weekend. After the break, we pitch two more Smash moversets for you guys, this time for the popular third-party choices Shovel Knight and Banjo-Kazooie! You can check out the jam-packed episode below—or if you’d like to save it to listen later, you can check the latest episode out on iTunes, available now.
Nintendo Week is currently available on iTunes, YouTube, Podbean, and right here at Gamnesia, you have plenty of ways to access what we hope will become one of your most trusted ways to absorb information on all things Nintendo. You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes for the earliest possible access to new episodes, or subscribe to our channel on YouTube for totally neato visuals. But if you’d rather not subscribe, be sure to check back here every week for your new episode!
If you’d like to give us feedback, please email me at
[email protected], and we’ll do our best to improve our show! We want to give you guys the best podcast we can, so please don’t be afraid to leave suggestions. And if you have questions about Nintendo that you’d like some insight on, please send those in as well! When we have a good number of fan questions, we’ll be answering them in one big block, so we’d love to hear some of your thoughts.
