Nintendo Power has returned… as a podcast

Back in 2012, the popular Nintendo-focused magazine Nintendo Power was sadly forced to close up shop. Now, it has been resurrected, albeit in a slightly different form: a podcast.

The Nintendo Power Podcast is a new Nintendo-sanctioned podcast which is hosted by none other than Chris Slate, one of the former editors-in-chief of Nintendo Power’s magazine incarnation. In the first episode of the podcast, Slate interviews The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s producer Eiji Aonuma and director Hidemaro Fujibayashi, with the two men sharing some fascination (and funny) insights behind the game’s production.

Slate refers to The Nintendo Power Podcast as a sort of “passion project” while also saying that the exact format of the podcast is still being tweaked. Therefore, it isn’t yet clear how often new episodes will come out, but if you want to at least listen to the first episode, you can download/listen to it via services like iTunes and SoundCloud.
