It’s the week’s biggest Nintendo news stories and the Arlopinions that accompany them! In this edition: an extremely early Ocarina of Time prototype has been discovered, along with a hidden shrine in Breath of the Wild; another valuable Pokemon card breaks records; an ex-Rare artist reveals early DK concept art; another joy-con lawsuit; someone is trying to turn their Lego Metroid set into a thing; and more!
