Krysta Yang is leaving Nintendo of America • Nintendo Connect

It was announced before Christmas that Nintendo Minute – the show starring Kit Ellis and Krysta Yang – would be discontinued after more than 400 episodes. So far we haven’t been given any precise reasons. Probably the departure of Krysta Yang is a possible explanation.

Nintendo Minute has been able to delight fans, viewers and subscribers of the American YouTube channel for eight years. There was all sorts of news, novelties, games and lots of laughs. The moderators Kit and Krysta also gave insights into events and they got in contact with many important people from the video game industry. So the two said goodbye in the last Nintendo Minute issue and, in around eleven minutes, gave another look back at what the moderator duo experienced.

If you missed the “Final Episode” you can watch it again here:

So as previously reported, Nintendo’s weekly Nintendo Minute show recently ended after more than 400 episodes co-produced by Krysta Yang and Kit Ellis. And half of the duo is now even leaving Nintendo!

Recently, Krysta Yang officially announced that she was leaving Nintendo of America after more than 14 years with the company. Starting out as a corporate affairs assistant in September 2007, it was a later move into public relations as a PR manager that enabled her to become a recognizable face for the brand that represented Nintendo Minute alongside Kit Ellis.

Krysta reiterated that this was her “dream job” and that being “a part of some of the most memorable moments in gaming” is incredible. With episodes shared almost weekly since May 2013, this show recently came to an end as Krysta made the difficult decision to leave her “dream job” to start a new chapter in her career elsewhere. The Nintendo Connect team wishes her all the best for the future!
