Nintendo is known for its great secrecy when it comes to game development processes. However, his communication with fans has always been very good and he has achieved it through various means. One of them has just come to an end.

We are talking about Nintendo Minute, a format that it created in the past decade to keep in touch with its fans and present the news in the Nintendo universe in an entertaining and family-friendly way.

The presenters Kit Ellis and Krysta Yang announced the news precisely in the last broadcast of the program that is transmitted through the official Nintendo account on YouTube, which was dedicated to remembering the moments lived in the more than 8 years and more than 400 weekly videos.

Through their Twitter accounts, both presenters thanked their followers for their support and warm messages.

“I am in awe of your messages and comments. I am honored to hear all the ways Nintendo Minute made a positive impact on people. You are all amazing!” Kit commented.

What is Nintendo Minute?

As we told you, this weekly video series showed the latest in the Nintendo world through Kit and Krysta, the only presenters of the program, which began airing 8 years ago and had more than 400 episodes. Precisely, the playlist on YouTube has 429 episodes and its duration varied between 5 and 10 minutes.

In the videos, for example, they featured upcoming Nintendo releases, Krit and Krysta played new Nintendo games, and featured the company’s general new products, such as the clothing line or Monopoly from Animal Crossing: New Horizons. These videos were also sometimes used to feature interviews with development members, such as one they had with renowned creatives Eiji Aonuma and Shigeru Miyamoto.

In case you missed it: Nintendo will expand its development force with the creation of new offices.

This has not been the only channel through which Nintendo was in constant communication with its fans. Precisely the precursor to Nintendo Minute was Nintendo Week, which aired weekly on the Nintendo Channel from 2009 to 2012.

It is unknown why Nintendo made this decision. Nintendo Minute was very popular and their videos had a very good number of views, usually 200,000 views per episode were recorded, although there were some that reached 500,000 or more. Likewise, it is not known if Nintendo has plans to replace this video format in the near future or if it will stop releasing weekly videos of this type.

On the other hand, you should know although they will no longer appear in Nintendo Minute, Kit and Krysta are still part of Nintendo, although neither of the 2 revealed what their next project in the company will be. The presenters also often appear on Nintendo Treehouse’s annual broadcasts on the sidelines of E3.
