Hello and welcome back to the Kit & Krysta Podcast! This is truly a very special episode because we finally have our first guest and it's none other than Reggie Fils-Aime himself. We got a chance to catch up with Reggie and ask him ten burning questions. It was just wonderful to see Reggie again and such an honor to have him on the podcast. We also have a ton of news to catch-up on since no one told us September is the new E3. We talk through big Nintendo Direct and State of Play announcements. We chat about games we're currently playing and of course, answer some very thoughtful questions from our Patreon Community. It's a big n' meaty episode so let's get started.

30: Our Wild Week with Hideki Kamiya LIVE from PAX West 2022
3805
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!

Hello and welcome to episode 26 of the Kit & Krysta Podcast. Today we'll be sharing some fun stories about office pranks we pulled on each other and with our good friends at Nintendo. We can't believe we never got into to trouble and we also can't believe that the foundation of a lot of our friends are built on a prank titled "poopy chair". In our Never a Minute segment, we'll be discussing some ridiculous but also possible "what if" scenarios in video game history. We're deep in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 in games we are playing. We go through Nintendo's financials in the news segment and of course answer questions from our wonderful Patreon subscribers. Buckle up and let's go!

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. We all have Pokemon on the brain after the Pokemon Presents event so we played a fun game of deciding which three Pokemon can go ahead and just disappear...forever!  Today we also tell a really fun story about our first time meeting Yuji Horii, the creator of the Dragon Quest series, and spent a magical week with him in New York. He really is one of the sweetest people we had the chance to work with at Nintendo. We talk about games we are playing (a lot of Xenoblade Chronicles 3), go through the news and of course answer questions from our wonderful Patreon family.

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!

8: This Nintendo E3 Moment was CURSED!
6482

Hi, welcome to Episode 8 of the Kit & Krysta Podcast! We're sure you all heard the news this week that E3 2022 is officially canceled, so we thought we'd share one of our many E3 memories. We've both worked on too many E3s to count (for better or worse) but this particular moment was truly something and might have scarred one of us for life. We also have a very special opportunity for you to ask some questions to Shinichi Kameoka, the developer of EGGLIA: Rebirth. Shinichi Kameoka is a character designer, producer, and director whose art style is as recognizable as the names of the games he’s worked on are revered. His work on the Mana series helped make the games so memorable, and since producing Mother 3, he’s been a vocal advocate of its localization for Western audiences. He’s gone on from Nintendo to found his own company, Brownies, who have recently released their latest title EGGLIA: Rebirth on the Nintendo Switch. We know many of you are huge fans of Mother 3 as well as the Mana series so here's your chance to ask your questions to the man himself. We'll pick 10 questions to ask him and those same 10 people will also get codes for EGGLIA: Rebirth. Ask away! We have this and lots more on today's jam packed show so let's get started, shall we?
