original story [Sat 18th Dec, 2021 04:05 GMT]: If you subscribe to Official Nintendo YouTube Channel, you’ve probably seen at least one episode of Nintendo Minutes hosted by Keith and Krista. Every week they talk about the latest events in the world of Nintendo and, of course, play some games.
Unfortunately, it looks like they just aired their latest episode. The show started in 2013 and after 8 years and over 400 episodes, Nintendo decided to cancel it. “Last Episode” is an emotional reflection on Keith and Krista’s years-long journey on Nintendo Minute.
Although the show has now ended, both Keith and Krista’s Twitter profiles indicate that both are still employed by Nintendo of America. If we hear anything else, we will be sure to provide an update.
On behalf of Nintendo Life, we would like to thank Kita and Krista for their contributions to the Nintendo community. How do you feel about this news? Tell us in the comments below.
