We're over the moon to announce that Jon Cartwright has joined Nintendo Life's video team.

You might recognise Jon's lovely face and smooth voice from the YouTube channel GameXplain, as well as his consistently hilarious Twitter account, JonComms.

Jon will be joining Alex and Zion as they continue to make the Nintendo Life YouTube channel one of the most popular of its kind on the web, and his timing couldn't be better – we've just passed 500,000 subscribers on the platform, and last week we held the inaugural Nintendo Life Indie Spotlight, a landmark event in the site's video-related history.

We've been big fans of Jon for years now, and hope you'll join us in welcoming him to the fold.
