A little over two months ago our good friends the Shinesparkers released their improbably massive collaborative tribute to music in the Super Smash Bros. series, Harmony of Heroes. That, by the way, is incredible and totally free to download. Get it from the Harmony of Heroes website here.

Despite this achievement, they still aren’t done, as they have just announced a continuation to Harmony of Heroes called Harmony of Heroes: Final Smash. It’s going to be the same deal, with fan created remixes of many Smash Bros. songs, but this time it will feature many new tracks from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.

This is definitely something to look forward to. Those of you who are fans of Sonic the Hedgehog, Mega Man, Xenoblade, or Punch Out should be doubly sure to check it out.

Twili Midna Coming to Hyrule Warriors DLC Pack

Posted on November 17, 2014 by Daisuke909

A recent Miiverse post from Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma confirmed that the highlight of the new DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors, the Twilight Princess pack, will be the inclusion of Midna in her true, “twili” form.

This is the form that Midna assumes at the very end of Twilight Princess, when she finally goes back to being a breathtakingly beautiful princess.

She will use the Mirror of Twilight as a weapon. Aonuma said that it’s pretty amazing. In fact, he “can’t describe in words what’s so amazing about it.”

It was also confirmed that there will be many other features in the Twilight Princess pack, including new weapons, costumes, a new adventure map, and a costume for Link that will let you dress him up “as a certain familiar character from the Zelda series.”

For those who blazed through the on-disc content of Hyrule Warriors and just want to play more, this will definitely be a great purchase. Big fans of Twilight Princess will also probably get a kick out of it.

So, what do you think? Will the inclusion of Twili Midna affect your playstyle? What do you think that new Link costume will be? Leave us your thoughts in the comments or on Zelda Eternity’s forums!

Zelda Eternity’s Official Review of Hyrule Warriors

Posted on September 25, 2014 by Shank

The latest Zelda spin-off, Hyrule Warriors, is almost here, and how fitting that I should be the one to bring you a review of it! To give you the most basic rundown, Hyrule Warriors is a crossover between Dynasty Warriors and The Legend of Zelda. The aim of the game – primarily from the Dynasty Warriors system – is to maintain control of a vast battlefield. Each map has its own goal for success, and you’ll receive missions throughout the battle which progress you toward the ultimate goal of each scenario.

A quick note from the reviewer before we begin: I didn’t think it wise to give this game a number score. My idea of a good score may be different from your idea of a good score, and it would just boil all I have to say about the game down to an arbitrary number.
