Nintendo is back with another video featuring Yoiko, a popular comedy duo in Japan. Once again the comedians have visited their friends at Nintendo to go hands-on with a game, and this time it’s a nostalgia-fueled experience.

Yoiko is a Japanese comic duo from Konohana-ku, Osaka that is employed by the comedy talent agency Shochiku Geino. Yoiko are known otakus, and the duo (kombi) was originally formed under the pretense of Shinya Arino as the boke (stooge) and Masaru Hamaguchi as the tsukkomi (straightman), but as time went on and Hamaguchi’s “natural stupidness” started to shine through, the duo became known as “the duo with no real distinction between the boke and the tsukkomi”.

In today’s video, Yoiko sits down to play Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition, which comes to Switch on July 18th, 2024. While you might not know what’s being said, there’s still plenty of gameplay and funny moments to check out!


UPDATE: The Yoiko duo gathered once again to enjoy some more Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition, but this time they hosted a special live-stream event. You can see the entire 2-hour archive of their exploits below!
