One of gaming entertainments most memorable and recognized news sources, Nintendo Power is back as a podcast. It features Nintendo employees, special guests and developers to talk about everything Nintendo
Other familiar faces of the podcast include Chris Slate who was editor in chief of Nintendo Power Magazine for 5 years, and Kit Ellis who is a co-host for Nintendo’s weekly Youtube show Nintendo Minute.
Chris had this to say about Nintendo Power,
“Nintendo Power has always meant a lot to me, just like i’m sure it’s meant a lot to many of you and it certainly means a lot to many of us here at Nintendo of America, which is really why this podcast exists. It’s a passion project for many of us here, because we really wanted to see the Nintendo Power brand come back in a fun way and we would also really love the chance to share our personal views, which is we just talk Nintendo here all day anyway, so it’s another opportunity to do that.”
The first episode of the podcast features an in depth interview with Eiji Aonuma and Hidemaro Fujibayashi the faces of pretty much every single Legend of Zelda game since Ocarina of Time. They talk about what it was like making Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, from why weapons break all the way to why they decided to add a motorcycle to the game. It’s really interesting hearing about their decisions they made for the game and why, and where they are going in the future with the Legend of Zelda series.
