Nintendo share Developer Chat with Aya Kyogoku and Risa Tabata


Nintendo of America have shared a Developer Chat video with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival‘s Aya Kyogoko, and Chibi Robo! Zip Lash‘s Risa Tabata.

Within the short but delightful discussion, they touch on their experiences of working at Nintendo with Tabata having been with the company for 15 years in which time she has aided development of the Donkey Kong and Metroid Prime series.

Their conversation circles around how they initially became interested in games, what it is like to be a female developer at Nintendo, what excites them about their current projects, and an inspiring message to females that would like to work in the game industry.
