Earlier this week, USGamer posted a really nice interview with Kouhei Maeda (Intelligent Systems, Director), Masahiro Higuchi (Intelligent Systems, Producer), and Genki Yokota (Nintendo, Director). It tackles several topics: how they did to develop two games at once, the input of Shin Kibayashi (novelist), the characters that Kouhei Maeda and Mashiro Higuchi had their protagonist marry, and more.

Talking of Fire Emblem Fates, some badges are now available in Nintendo Badge Arcade in North America (along with two Free Plays)!
This year, The Legend of Zelda celebrates its 30th Anniversary, and some websites have already started putting up various articles. GameStop went and asked several (Western) developers about their memories of the series, and how much it has influenced them and the games they created. Click here to check it out!
Return to PoPoLoCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale
If you’re in the mood for another interview, here’s one of Yosuke Tamori, creator of the PoPoLoCrois series. He talks about how he warmed up to the idea of a PoPoLoCrois and Story of Seasons cross-over, how he finds modern RPGs have become too severe and brutal, and his hope new fans will discover the series thanks to this cross-over.

Today, the Nintendo World Store re-opened after renovation, and is now known as “Nintendo NY”. If you happen to live close to New York (or if you happen to be around), make sure to head there this week-end: you will get a free Splatoon poster!
On April 28th (just in time for the Golden Week), Hori will release a GamePad cover in Japan. It comes with a Marie & Callie cleaning cloth, and costs 1 922 Yen.
