Nintendo Minute

Here’s the latest Nintendo Minute episode, which is not about a specific game this time around, but features a special visit to Nintendo in Japan!

Hi Everyone! Today is a special day for many reasons. First, we got to go on a really exciting trip to Kyoto, Japan to visit Nintendo HQ. This is really the trip of a lifetime and we’re so happy to get the chance to share it with all of you. It just so happens that this video also marks 250 Nintendo Minute episodes! We truly love this show and we’re so grateful for all your support. We hope that we can make many more episodes and continue to share all things Nintendo with you. As always, thank you so much for watching and we’ll see you next week!

Well, it turns out that Mythra is also getting one! Pre-orders went live last week, with the release slated for February 2019 (two months after the Pyra figure).

Here’s some pictures:
