nintendo crunch retro studios

In a new episode of the Kiwi Talkz podcast, former Retro Studios developer Mike Wikan spoke about early crunch at the company, which Nintendo put an end to.

Wikan said that Retro Studios experienced significant crunch during the development of Metroid Prime 1. He even spoke about a instances in which he “was there 48 hours straight with one hour of sleep, and then a couple of 36-hour days.” But despite what may have been previously reported about Metroid Prime 2, there wasn’t much crunch on the game after Nintendo came in and put Michael Kelbaugh – who is currently the president and CEO of Retro – in the main leadership role.

My Nintendo Zelda smartphone ring

Over in Europe, My Nintendo has added in a Zelda smartphone ring as its latest reward. There unfortunately is no similar option in North America, but we’ll let you know if that changes.

The ring is inspired by the Hylian Shield, with the design specifically based on how it looks in The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening on Switch. It can be used to hold a phone, and if you rotate the ring, it even works as a kickstand. The body is made of acryl material while the ring is comprised of zinc alloy. The body size measures 43mm x 48mm, 3mm thick while the ring section comes in at 22mm in diameter (inner dimensions).

The classic board game Labyrinth will soon have new adaptations of Mario and Pokemon, retailer listings reveal.

For those that are unaware, Labyrinth has been around for 35 years. The board game involves shifting the maze and moving along the path in hopes of getting the characters on your cards while blocking your opponents. If you’re the first to find all of your characters and make it back to the starting place, you’ll be the winner. It’s said to be easy enough for kids to play but fun for adults as well.
