Last month, we received the sad news that Nintendo Minute, Nintendo’s long-running YouTube series, had ended with a bittersweet finale. The news continued this month, as Nintendo Minute co-creator Krysta Yang announced that she was leaving Nintendo. Now, her co-star Kit Ellis has made a similar announcement.
Kit served 13 years at Nintendo, and Krysta committed 14 of service before the duo left the company. Each of them shared memorable photographs taken throughout their tenure as they made announcements.
Today is my 13 year anniversary of starting at Nintendo. It’s also my last day at Nintendo. I’m fortunate to have been a small part of this incredible company for all these years. It was the experience of a lifetime full of unforgettable moments and people. pic.twitter.com/zh27P077j8

After over 14 years, I've decided to leave Nintendo. To be able to work at my dream job for so long and be part of some of the most memorable moments in gaming has truly been incredible. But the best part was all the people that I've had the privilege to work with. pic.twitter.com/E4SPjjLLJ0

No details of their leaving were shared, though it’s worth noting that Nintendo recently closed its offices in California and Toronto, which may have forced Kit and Krysta’s hands.
Nintendo certainly won’t be the same without Kit and Krysta, who showcased the company’s latest products with infectious enthusiasm and an adorable onscreen chemistry. We wish them both luck in their future endeavors, wherever they end up next.
