With E3 and big announcements behind us, and Wind Waker HD and A Link Between Worlds ahead of us, many fans are still wondering when we’ll see the upcoming Wii U Zelda game. Most people would probably not expect the first trailer until next year’s E3, but in a recent interview with GamesIndustry, Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto stated that we could expect see Zelda Wii U very soon, perhaps even before the end of the year.
You can read an extract from the interview below.
A new Super Smash Bros. game is coming out for both Wii U and 3DS, and during Nintendo’s E3 Direct today, the first SSB4 trailer ever was shown to public. The trailer included two new playable characters, Villager and Mega Man, but what is most remarkable for Zelda fans is that the new Super Smash Bros. game will include at least three new stages from the Zelda series, The Spirit Train from Spirit Tracks, Gerudo Valley from Ocarina of Time, and Skyloft from Skyward Sword. Our beloved Link will make his fourth appearance in the Super Smash Bros. Series, with updated graphics, although we have still yet to see if his moveset will be any different.

Today during their E3 Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata unveiled a brand new trailer for The Wind Waker HD, also confirming that to be its title. The remake will feature multiple new features, including a “speed up” button which allows you to travel faster while sailing the Great Sea. In addition to using the GamePad to access your inventory at ease, it will also be used for the “Tingle Bottle”, to replace the Tingle Tuner. Using the Tingle Bottle will allow you to post messages to Miiverse, and will wash up on the shore of other players’ games. The Wind Waker HD was also confirmed to release in October this year.

Shortly after the E3 Nintendo Direct ended, Nintendo uploaded a Youtube trailer for “The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds”, formerly known as A Link to the Past 2 and Zelda 3DS! The trailer features a lot of new things, such as new locations, the Fire Rod, a Fairy Fountain and two Pieces of Heart. There was no information about when the game will be out, but I am really glad I can finally refer to this upcoming Zelda game with an official title!

Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has in a recent interview confirmed that A Link to the Past’s 3DS sequel will feature a Dark World, just like its precursor. The upcoming 3DS title will also run at 60 frames per second, which is a huge step up from 30 frames per second, that all the 3D games so far have run on. Thirly, Aonuma has revealed that there will be a “big surprise” in the beginning of the game, that is sure to shock many Zelda fans:
“This new title will feature lots of things that are new to the series; right at the start of the game, there’s a big surprise that will shock players.”
Both Oracle of Ages and Seasons for Gameboy Color have been added to the 3DS eShop, so If you downloaded them or have ages kicking around, give our site walkthrough a gander. While parts 1 and 2 of the chapter are complete, part 3 is still being worked on. And anyway to be honest, by the end of part two it’s quite obvious what you need to do. So if you happen to find yourself in need of a little direction, we’re here for ya. Oh, and one more thing after the break.
Today it was globally announced on another installment of Nintendo Direct that The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages will be priced for their 3DS eShop release at $5.99. However, for the first three weeks of release, the games will be available for the special price of $4.99. Additionally, it was announced that the two games would be able to retain their link ability in some way, allowing the retention of the secret ending/final boss being unlocked when you link the games together.
We’ll bring you any more information as it comes, so be sure and stick to Zelda Eternity for all your Zelda news!
Hey, folks! Boy, we’ve been gone a while, but we’re back today with something interesting to report on! If you’ve ever wondered how much the great Hyrule Castle would cost in real money (because you’ve wondered that before, right? RIGHT??), the folks at Movoto Blog (a blog focusing on real estate– of all things!) have weighed the information and have determined the most likely price of Hyrule Castle. Disregarding the fact that they didn’t account for the Rupee/US Dollar exchange rate, their estimates are worth a look if you’re in the market for a fictitious castle of your own! Heh heh. Fictitious real estate. A bit of an oxymoron, no? Anyway, click “read more” for the scoop!
Our friends over at Shinesparkers have recently announced their latest project: “Harmony of Heroes”, which is an upcoming free album that pays tribute to the Super Smash Brothers series. The announcement comes only months after the release of their previous album: Harmony of a Hunter.
This album, which is to be released 2014, will focus on music included in all three of the Smash Bros. games. And, if you were a fan of their previous work, you’ll be happy to hear that some musicians from the last album are returning to contribute to this one.

Zelda Sanctuary staff member Izagar has recently posted an interesting article about the upcoming A Link to the Past sequel. This article mainly discusses a current hot topic: the Master Sword’s return.
“Most veteran Zelda fans and even those introduced to a Link to the Past during the Gameboy Advance era remember this line at the end of the credits. With Ganon destroyed, peace reigned in Hyrule and the Master Sword fell into a deep sleep within the Lost Woods.”
Izagar cites the line “And the Master Sword sleeps again…FOREVER!”, and with the apparent return of the blade, many wonder about this quote.
The article shares the writer’s views on how the sword would awaken, as well as their views on a few other additions.
