General Nintendo

Nintendo’s Annual General Meeting of Shareholders tend to feature business-related questions, but one person attending the event decided to bring up a more easygoing subject. All of Nintendo’s director candidates were asked to discuss their favorite games.

We get to hear from all of the important figures at Nintendo here, including president Shuntaro Furukawa and Shigeru Miyamoto. Their full comments are posted below.


Chris Meledandri

Back in May, Chris Meledandri was nominated as a new outside director at Nintendo. He was then officially approved last week with a vote of 99.31 percent.

Meledandri’s addition to Nintendo may seem surprising to some. He’s the CEO over at Illumination – the studio behind the films Despicable Me and Minions.

During Nintendo’s 81st Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, president Shuntaro Furukawa and representative director/fellow Shigeru Miyamoto both weighed in on what Meledandri brings to the table. Read up on their comments below.

If you missed out on the Dark Samus amiibo, you’ll be happy to hear that you’ll have another chance at adding the figure to your collection. A new listing just popped up today on Best Buy. According to the retailer, Dark Samus will be available once more on October 8.

You can pre-order the Dark Samus amiibo on Best Buy here. Other retailers will presumably follow soon. 


During a WonHobby Mini presentation at Anime Expo Lite, new Nendoroids were revealed. These include some figures based on popular games.

The Ace Attorney series will be represented with a couple of new additions. Phoenix Wright and Miles Edgeworth will both be getting Nendoroids.

With Fuga: Melodies of Steel releasing in just a few weeks, we were able to speak with creative director Yoann Gueritot. Fans are likely aware that the game is set in the same universe as the other Little Tail Bronx titles, Solatorobo and Tail Concerto.

Over the years, there have been plenty of requests for CyberConnect2 to re-release or remake those previous titles. Gueritot addressed the possibility again while speaking with Nintendo Everything.

He told us:

This week, two more rewards were added to My Nintendo in North America. Both are for the Zelda series.

First up is a July calendar for Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, featuring the design above. There’s also a Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity wallpaper based on the recent DLC – that design is shown below.

You can order both of these rewards on My Nintendo here. They cost 50 Platinum Points each.

This week’s episode of Nintendo Minute has gone live. In today’s video, Kit and Krysta read fans’ gaming confessions. Check out the full episode below.

Gust, the developer at Koei Tecmo responsible for the Atelier series, appears to have important news incoming. The studio’s official Twitter account shared the image above a couple of hours ago, which indicates that some sort of announcement will be made on July 6. Just by going off of the actual photo, many are speculating that a new Atelier title will be revealed.

Gust is largely known for the Atelier games, but the team does work on other projects as well. Last year for instance, the studio released a title based on Fairy Tail.
