Kit Ellis and Krysta Yang on Nintendo Minutes and Working at Nintendo | Everything Nintendo

Nintendo Minute is never a minute, and neither is this week’s All Things Nintendo! This week, Brian was joined by two former hosts of Nintendo’s in-house YouTube show, Nintendo Minute, Kit Ellis and Krysta Yang. However, their time at Nintendo goes far beyond simply hosting the show. In fact, if you combine Kit and Krysta’s time at Nintendo, that’s nearly three years of experience. In this Nintendo special, Brian chats with two former Nintendo employees about their long-running show, what it’s like to work at the company, and hints about what might come next for them.
