Update [Sat 15th Jan, 2022 00:45 GMT]: In an update via social media, Krysta has announced that she has decided to move on from Nintendo. Here is her full statement:
“After over 14 years, I have decided to leave Nintendo. To be able to work on my dream job for so long and be a part of some of the most memorable moments in gaming has really been incredible. But the best thing was all the people I have had the privilege of working with.
“They have inspired me every day and I’m grateful to be able to call them lifelong friends. I’m really excited about what the future holds and I hope you all stay with me on this crazy journey. I love you all together.”
Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser also thanked Krysta for her contribution to the company over the years:
And so did Kit:
Original story [Sat 18th Dec, 2021 04:05 GMT]: If you subscribe to Nintendo’s official YouTube channel, you have probably seen at least one episode of ‘Nintendo Minute’ hosted by Kit and Krysta. Every week, they talk about the latest happenings in the world of Nintendo and of course play some games.
Unfortunately, though, it looks like they just posted their last episode. The show started in 2013, and after 8 years and over 400 episodes, Nintendo has decided to end it. The “last episode” is an emotional reflection on Kit and Krysta’s ‘Nintendo Minute’ journey over the years.
Although the show has now ended, according to the Twitter profiles of Kit and Krysta – both are still employed by Nintendo of America. If we hear anything else, we will make sure to provide an update.
On behalf of Nintendo Life, thanks to Kit and Krysta for their contributions to the Nintendo community. How are you feeling about this news? Tell us in the comments below.
