Whether you enjoy playing or listening with power, you’ll be happy to know that the Nintendo Power Podcast is back after its surprise debut last month. Last time, host Chris Slate sat down with Mr. Eiji Aonuma and Mr. Hidemaro Fujibayashi, the producer and director of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

A different format is used in the second episode after the team behind the podcast received feedback following the debut. Calling back to the issues of Nintendo Power Magazine, sections like Pros’ Picks and Player’s Pulse make a return. Coming back from the last episode is the quiz section, dubbed Warp Zone.

As for this episode’s overall topic: “Chris Slate discusses what it’s like to build Toy-Con with guests Krysta Yang, co-host of Nintendo Minute, and Nate Bihldorff, Senior Director of Localization at Nintendo of America.” We hear the proper pronunciation for Nintendo Labo, along with thoughts about possibilities of bringing joy with Toy-Con schematics.

Even if you’re not interested in Labo, we recommend you don’t skip this episode, as Chris, Krysta, and Nate divulge some fun work stories — and they prove that, like the rest of us, they’re massive game nerds.

You can listen to the podcast in the video below and on other platforms (SoundCloud, iTunes, and Google Play). You can also send feedback to the Nintendo Power Podcast crew at nintendopowerpodcast@noa.nintendo.com.
