Many of us have fond memories of the 2006 Nintendo Monopoly board game, or at least memories of how much we wanted it. Well, Nintendo is once again taking a stroll into the world of board games with the announcement of Zelda and Pokemon themed Monopoly games.
Announced by USAopoly at last month’s International Toy Fair, the games will be coming out this September and will retail for $45.
This comes shortly after Iwata’s January announcement that Nintendo would be using character licences in new fields, so maybe we will see more off-beat products like this in the future.

The folks over at Gametrailers.com have just recently posted a Zelda-related video in their highly popular Pop Facts series. This one is all about the original NES Game’s second quest, and the subtle Easter Eggs hidden within it. Be sure to give it a watch if you happen to be a fan of Easter Eggs in Zelda.
Okay, sure, everyone knows about this stuff already, but the second quest could use some more recognition. Maybe this will encourage some of you long time fans to delve back into one of Link’s least appreciated, and most difficult adventures.
Stacey Mason, according to Kotaku.com, is working on a very unique project. Said project will be a very interesting twist on the Legend of Zelda series. The game, titled Adventures of Zelda, will give us a look into what our beloved Princess Zelda does while she waits for Link to save the day. The game will be based upon The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and will, according to Mason, explore “the role of women in games and the game industry through its protagonist’s unfulfilled desires.”
Adventures of Zelda does not have a set release date, but keep an eye on Mason’s website for more information about the game’s development. Hopefully we will see a finished product soon that really is just as great as it looks!
Hey there, Zelda fans! Ever wanted to hear Majora’s Mask music in an even more climactic way? Well, now’s your chance! A composer by the name of Rozen has recently released Part I of his Waiting For The Dawn EP titled “The Predicament Of The Four”.
I’ve embedded the music below, but I would highly recommend visiting Rozen’s website for more details and other media!
Thanks to our good friend Darren for the tip!
No, this isn’t the next big revolution to the Zelda series. It’s actually a clone of the original The Legend of Zelda made for VirtualReality.io, the operating system for the Oculus Rift, which can be downloaded here. In this port, created by Ubiquitron, the player is placed in a first person perspective within the original NES game, with all the graphics, audio, and gameplay mostly intact. It is still in beta, with only the overworld and the first dungeon accessible, although the full version is planned to be released next month.
Check out this video by YOGSCAST Martyn, showing off the first dungeon.
If you think you would like it, you can download it here for free, although unless you are one of the few lucky people with access to an Oculus Rift, you won’t be able to fully experience it.
A recent “Pic of the day” Miiverse post from Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game the classic bottled fairies from The Legend of Zelda series will be appearing as an item. Not much is known about their use, although Sakurai stated that they can “even heal fighters who have accumulated over 100% damage.”
It’s unclear what exactly this means, although it is something for Zelda fans to look forward to when the game launches for Wii U and 3DS sometime this year.

Nintendo uploaded a video today that reveals an interesting secret from the original The Legend of Zelda game. In the video, the player easily destroys the Dodongo lurking in stage eight by simply setting a bomb in front of the Dodongo’s path, destroying it as it approaches said bomb. Take a look at the video and Nintendo’s other videos let us know if you were surprised at this strategy.
Pretty much everyone who has played Ocarina of Time hates Kaepora Gaebora, that wise old owl who dumps tiring amounts of exposition on the player at the worst possible moments. Well, the folks over at the Z. M. S. Youtube channel feel your pain, and have created a short animation to express it, ending with a macabre twist.
If you liked that video, be sure to check out their other two Zelda related animations, as well as their other videos in general. Also be sure to check out their website here.
Early this morning an interesting and revealing article about Eiji Aonuma’s role in The Legend of Zelda series was posted by Computer and Video Games (CVG). In said piece, Aonuma reveals some interesting tidbits, such as his role in creating Majora’s Mask and not even finishing the original The Legend of Zelda game! Aonuma also opened up about the Triforce challenge in The Wind Waker (“At the end of the production we fought against the clock and there were parts that I was forced to approve even though it didn’t feel complete[.]“) See the original article here for some more fun facts about him (including a slideshow of other games he had a hand in creating).
This guy can’t seem to keep himself out of the news around here, and it’s not hard to see why. Mr. McGroove’s highly unique style is something that pretty much anyone can enjoy and, once again, he has turned his skills at one-man acapella to Zelda.
This time around it’s Ocarina of Time’s Kokiri Forest, a song that will surely bring back memories in long time Zelda fans.
If you liked the video be sure to take a look at Smooth McGroove’s channel here and check out his other videos.
