It wasn’t too long ago that we reported on the YouTube series Nintendo Minute coming to an end, and now the show’s co-creator Krysta Yang has announced her departure from Nintendo of America.

Krysta worked with the company for over 14 years, starting off as a corporate affairs assistant and working her way up to becoming a public relations manager. Her decision to leave doesn’t come with any bad blood, as she refers to her position as a “dream job” and sends nothing but love to her friends and colleagues. Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser, as well as co-host of Nintendo Minute Kit Ellis, responded to the news with heartwarming messages of compassion and appreciation.

What the future holds for Krysta is currently unknown, as she’s unlikely to be retiring at only 37 years of age. Wherever she ends up next though, all of us at MyNintendoNews wish her the absolute best of luck and happiness in her endeavors. You can check out her full statement via Twitter below.

      1. Kindly show me the sexual harassment and/or illegal activities Nintendo has under their belts. Because unless you have proof of those, they aren’t the worst company in the industry; especially since we have the Activision/Blizzard kerfuffle going on now and that EA still exists.

        1. Lol. Nintendo is not immune to harassment. They just bury it. My wife was harassed there and instead of dealing with it, they kept the douchebag separated from his targets and let him clean out his vacation and sick time while he looked for another job. Same for the toxic leadership. They look the other way.

        1. Read the comments on their final YouTube video. I read them on many other sites, too. People thought he treated Krista badly, & didn’t like his personality. I thought they were pretty playful together, & liked their banter, but seems I’m in the vast minority, if Twitter & YouTube comments are actually representative of the audience.

          1. The opinions of Twitter users really doesn’t count for much.
            It’s one of the most toxic social media sites on the internet.

  1. Hmmm….Does anyone else suspect something has gone down behind the scenes? All this just seems too close together for my taste.

    1. I believe that she didn’t want to move to Seattle. I don’t blame her or anyone else that didn’t like that they were being forced to move. Just awful.

    2. Yes. They closed the entire Redwood City office and gave them a choice to either take severance or move at their own expense. Don’t be surprised if Kit is gone as well. Both of their roles are posted on the job site.
