About us

Nintendo Inquirer was built from the ground up by a team of passionate lifelong gamers and writers. A lot of pixelated hearts and a whole bunch of souls went into its creation.

The very idea of the Nintendo Inquirer blossomed from two peoples’ independent personal endeavors, Amiibo News and Amiibo Inquirer. After setting off on different ventures, they came together through shared devotions for Nintendo with the intent to bring a sense of truth and quality to the gaming world. Nintendo itself produces colorful, clean, and crisp games, and the NI team set out on a mission to represent a similar professional, yet fun, image through quality writing and design.

We want you, fellow gamers and our readers, to always know that gaming isn’t just a hobby in our eyes; it’s a way of living. We take gaming seriously, we take you seriously. Bring those two awesome things together, and you’ve got NintendoInquirer.com

Jason is also a lifelong Nintendo fan. Some of his fondest memories consist of playing the NES with his sister Kristin and the joy he felt when he received a Nintendo 64 on Christmas Morning in 1996. The Legend of Zelda has always and more than likely will always be his favorite and most beloved franchise spanning any medium.

He is a graduate of Cedarville University in Ohio with a major in Political Science and is looking forward to finishing a second degree.

Jason is a child of the ’90s, so he grew up loving all things Nintendo. Endless hours were put into Kirby games after school, late nights catching Pokémon, and weekends challenging his friends in Super Smash Bros.


Josh Brown

Joshua is a father, a partner, a jack-of-all-trades, a writer, a gamer, and a dreamer from Vancouver, Washington.

Despite having lengthy employment as a maintenance technician, Joshua has always envisioned his true calling to be a writer and creator of content in some form or fashion. From writing and publishing his own book about saving the planet at an early age, to creating an entire sequel to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past on paper, he has always enjoyed the creative process. Once he learned the true power of words in his high school journalism class, the path to get here was created with non-stop writing and dedication to the craft.

Joshua has been a fan of Nintendo since receiving his first NES as a Christmas gift at the tender age of three. Since then, his love for gaming has spread to all other platforms and consoles, but his heart will always truly be with Nintendo, no matter what. In his eyes, there is no other game more perfect than the original Super Mario Bros.
