Next Legend of Zelda Game Will Have a Different Kind of Open World

In a recent interview with IGN, The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma admitted that they are listening to the criticism given by fans in the last main Zelda game, Skyward Sword, particularly with regard to its open world and how it’s not as vast as fans have come to expect from the franchise. “We actually had some feedback from Skyward Sword, where people were saying, ‘This is ...

Nintendo Confirms Timeline of The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

One of the more interesting quirks of Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda franchise is the fact that all the Links featured in the games are different persons (except in cases of direct sequels, where the Link is carried over to the next game.) existing in different timelines. The chronology is therefore one of the most discussed topics among fans, and a frequent subject of debate. Nintendo has ...

North America to Get a Yo-Kai Watch Nintendo 2DS Bundle

The Nintendo 2DS, which is a budget version of the 3DS that lacks the 3D function and a couple of other things, is admittedly not as popular in the U.S. as its predecessor. This is understandable given the fact that there’s already a lot of 3DS owners in the U.S., making the cut down version not so appealing, and also because the removed features are the main selling points of the handheld. If ...

Preview Trailer: The Legend of Zelda – Tri-Force Heroes

Nintendo has just posted a new preview trailer for their upcoming 3-player co-op action game The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, which is great timing because the game will debut in less than a month. Clocking in at a good 2 and half minutes, the trailer is brief but shows off enough gameplay footage and reveals some important details about the game, such as the ability for three players to ...

Toon Link Joins Hyrule Warrior Legends’ Playable Roster

The hit crowd brawling game Hyrule Warriors/Zelda Musou will be making its way to the Nintendo 3DS handheld as Hyrule Warriors Legends. While it’s expected that some content might get lost in the translation, fans of Toon Link will be glad to know that it’s not their favorite character – the most recent issue of Famitsu magazine confirmed that Toon Link will be part of the roster of ...

Pikmin 4 Confirmed by Nintendo to Be Nearing Completion

This may come off as a weird bit of news due to the context, but back in July, Nintendo confirmed in a chat with Eurogamer that Pikmin 4 is under development. But it was not reported on because the production was under embargo. Said embargo was lifted recently so Eurogamer has revealed the information, but there’s the added bonus of newer information, such as Shigeru Miyamoto himself confirming ...

Nintendo to Give Away Shiny Rayquaza for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Starting from August 12 until September 14th, the Nintendo Network is giving away a free Shiny Rayquaza to owners of Pokemon Omega Ruby or Pokemon Alpha Sapphire on the Nintendo 3DS.

Pokemon Brand Gets Its Own Visa Card

People thought that the Pokemon brand has achieved peak exposure when they came out with Pikachu-themed curry rice, but those people probably thought long and hard then changed their minds after realizing that they still can’t purchase things using Pokemon money (except if you’re Nintendo, because in their case Pokemon actually prints money.) Fret no more, Pokemon-addled brains of my ...

Official Japanese Trailer for Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice

An official Japanese trailer has just been released for the upcoming Sonic Boom game for the 3DS, titled Sonic Boom: Fire and Ice. It’s a 2.5D platformer, which seems to be the preferred genre for Sonic games, and judging by the trailer, there is a lot to like about the game barring preference over character design. You can check out the trailer, which highlights the differences between ice and ...

FAN VIDEO: The Legend of Zelda – Race for Rupees

Animator Callegos Yavolitak has recently posted a short but extremely enjoyable fan video for The Legend of Zelda, the quality of which is so high that it makes you wish Nintendo would get off their butts and develop a CG animated series already. The short is titled Racing for Ruppes, and features Link trying to score himself a new shield. Unfortunately for the hero of time, the shield costs more ...

Play Super Mario 64 Straight From Your Browser

With the existence of Nintendo 64 emulators and with PCs these days powerful enough to do the job, playing Super Mario 64 on your PC isn’t such a big deal (in fact, you can even play it on your smartphone if you have one of the beefier ones.) However, what about playing a remake of the first level – one with HD textures that make it look like a Wii version of the game? And how about doing it ...
