Hi and welcome to episode 37 of the Kit & Krysta Podcast! Can you believe it's already the 5 year anniversary of Super Mario Odyssey? Time sure flies. We tell you all about this incredible launch that we were very involved in and how we almost didn't survive the stress. We also had a big weekend going to New York to be on the Nontendo Podcast where we spill the tea all about the drama with the Nintendo Creator Program so head over there and listen to that episode now. Wood and Bob from Nontendo were also gracious enough to be on this episode of our podcast where we  determine the scariest video game character using our very scientific bracket. We also share a handful of news, talk about the games we are playing (a lot of Mario + Rabbids) and of course answer questions from our wonderful Patreon subscribers. It's another full show so let's go!

30: Our Wild Week with Hideki Kamiya LIVE from PAX West 2022

Podcast cover
Read more
Hi, welcome to Episode 30 of the Kit & Krysta Podcast. We can't believe we're already at this incredible milestone and to do it at a live show with some of you in person was absolutely amazing. This week we share a never before heard story about a wild week we spent with Hideki Kamiya from Platinum Games at a PAX West many years ago. We also answer some of your questions live. It was a great time and thanks to everyone show came out. 

0:00 - It's live so let's go 
5:25 - Nintendo Storytime - our week with Kamiya-san
25:38 - Answering live questions from our amazing PAX audience. Here are the questions asked, in case you have any trouble hearing them!

1. What are your thoughts on the PlayStation Vita?
2. Being a Nintendo personality probably wasn't in your job description. At what point did you realize that being an internet personality was part of your job, and did you ever meet any resistance to that?
3. Would you like to see StreetPass be incorporated into future Nintendo hardware?
4. Kit, why don't you like Sonic games?
5. When the Nintendo Switch OLED trailer was taken down you explained to us why we shouldn't get our hopes up for a new announcement. What are some signs that might indicate an announcement actually is coming?
6. Do you have any insight on how Xenoblade went from being a niche series to a hot mainstay on the Switch?
7. (Before this question there is a long anecdote about using a PlayStation Vita for wedding photography). The Switch has been around for five years now and the competition is starting to heat up. What can Nintendo do to remain competitive? 
8. If you could have a Zelda movie or TV show, what would you like the story to be based around?
9. Would you rather fight three monkeys or a bear?
10. I really like my Wii U and have a lot of great memories from my time with that system. Do you have any stories from the early days of the Wii U?
11. You have talked about how when you worked at Nintendo you knew about news before it was announced. Now that you aren't at Nintendo, what announcement has made you the most surprised or excited? 
12. Will you be making more videos in Animal Crossing?
13. What Pokemon Scarlet/Violet starter will be you choosing and who do you want on your team?
14. Which Animal Crossing villager is your favorite?
15. What are your thoughts on Nintendo's relationship with the competitive Smash community?
16. It must be a shock coming from the built-in audience of Nintendo channels to building your own. As a content creator myself, how do you keep your spirits up navigating this change?

Hello and welcome to episode 28 of the Kit & Krysta Podcast. Today we're talking about something a bit serious and frankly pretty upsetting and that's the recent news stories that have come out about harassment and the poor working conditions for contract workers at Nintendo. We have a few things that we think Nintendo should do immediately to start to get this back on the right track. Our storytime this week is about the sweetest victory in Fortnite but only because we struggled with major tech issues. We also can't believe that it's been 6 months since we started the Kit & Krysta channel and we want to do a little progress report to see how we're doing and also get your thoughts on where we can improve and what other types of content you'd like to see. We go though games we're playing which includes some "emotional damage" from Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and then wrap it up with questions from our wonderful Patreon family. Let's do it!

Hi friends and welcome to episode 25 of podcast. How exciting that we've made to this milestone! Already 1/4 of the way to 100.

He really is one of the sweetest people we had the chance to work with at Nintendo.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Hello everyone and welcome to episode 23 of the Kit & Krysta Podcast. Today we're having a lively discussion about Nintendo's 2022 release calendar and whether there could be room for the always favorite..."one more thing". We also discuss if these Twitter announcement drops are really better than a full Nintendo Direct. In our Never A Minute segment we dig into our backlog and get a bit discouraged. We have a hefty news segment and answer a handful of questions from our wonderful Patreon subscribers. Let's go!

Hi, here we are with episode 21 of the Kit & Krysta Podcast. Today we're telling you a very dramatic and somewhat sad story about our favorite episode of Nintendo Minute that never aired.

It's actually harder to choose than you think so please tell us if you have games where you've thought about this. Of course we tell you all about games we're currently playing, discuss what's in the news and answer questions from our wonderful Patreon supporters.

Hi everyone, here we are at Episode 19 of the Kit & Krysta Podcast. Big news this week that a Nintendo Direct was technically announced but it wasn't quite what we all wanted. We go into depth on this and tons more on this episode. We also share a very random story about the most dangerous business trip we ever went on and how we put our very lives in danger for a burrito. We also have some major Ninja Turtle fever along with everyone else so we do a fun character bracket of our favorite character in our Never a Minute segment. 

In other very exciting news, we've launched official Kit & Krysta merch - woohoo! We're super excited about this and we hope you are too. This is another way you can support us and keep this channel going! Jam packed show and jam packed week as usual so let's go. COWABUNGA!
