The latest episode of Nintendo Minute is now live. In today’s video, Kit and Krysta play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and see if they can complete 20 challenges in the game in 20 minutes. Check out the full episode below.

Dragon Quest: Your Story debuted in Japan last August. The movie was based on Dragon Quest V, Square Enix’s RPG that first appeared on the Super Famicom in 1992 and later on DS in 2008 / 2009.

Thankfully, an English release of Dragon Quest: Your Story is in the cards. Netflix has updated with a listing confirming that it will have the film available to stream for subscribers next month.

Here’s a brief description of the movie:

Original:Last month, Pokemon: Twilight Wings was announced. The seven-episode limited animated series is intended to “show in detail the dreams of Galar’s residents, the realities they face, the challenges they must overcome and the conflicts they must resolve.”

Super Nintendo World isn’t just about rides, as there are other elements such as wrist bands. All attendees will receive one when they enter the theme park, and some special functionality is included.

According to GamesIndustry, these wrist bands interact with the smartphone app and can be used to collect coins and character stamps. They can also be used to complete “key challenges” that will lead to working together with other attendees in boss battles. Unfortunately, we don’t have any other specifics currently.

Super Nintendo World is debuting with a whole lot of Mario. When the first park opens in Japan this summer, the different rides and the entire land is based around the character’s IP.

The good news is that things may not stay that way. IGN asked Universal Japan Studio’s marketing head Ayumu Yamamoto if fans can look forward to attractions, shops or even restaurants themed after other Nintendo franchises. While there’s nothing planned immediately, Yamamoto said the company is “thinking about expanding to Nintendo’s other IPs after opening.”
