Smosh “Leaks” Legend of Zelda Netflix Series Trailer

Posted on April 18, 2015 by Daisuke909

A little while back, we reported on rumors that Netflix was producing a live action original series based on The Legend of Zelda. More recently, we reported that it had come out that these rumors were false.

That, however, didn’t stop famous Youtube comedy channel Smosh from making a “leaked” trailer. It’s quite a good laugh, so be sure to give it a watch.

Be warned, it is slightly adult.

If you enjoyed that, be sure to check out the Smosh Youtube channel here.

Today, the hard hitting journalists at Zelda Eternity are coming to you with an earth-shattering exclusive report!

I’m warning you, the content of this article could change your entire world view, and some parts of it are very disturbing, so viewer (reader?) discretion is advised.

I was doing tireless research playing A Link to the Past when I noticed something. Take a look at this image:

Notice anything unusual? Look again:

Woah.

Clearly the only explanation is that the entire Legend of Zelda series is a conspiracy by the Illuminati to do something nefarious, I’m sure.

Not convinced? Hit the jump for the rest of this hard-hitting exclusive.

In an unusual move for Nintendo, a recent video labeled as a “Zelda Development Update” was uploaded to the Nintendo of Europe YouTube channel, featuring only Zelda series director Eiji Aonuma directly addressing the audience to discuss the development of the upcoming Legend of Zelda title for Wii U.

Unfortunately, the message wasn’t that the game is going along swimmingly and we can expect it by Christmas. Instead, he reported on his decision to fulfill the Wii U’s capabilities and make Zelda for Wii U the best game it can possibly be, regardless of how it effects the game’s development schedule.

What this boils down to is that Zelda probably won’t be reaching store shelves until 2016. The good news is that, if all goes according to plan, our patience will reward us with possibly the greatest Zelda experience yet, featuring a rich open world and many new gameplay possibilities not yet conceived of by fans.

What do you think? Do you think Aonuma’s decision is the best in the long run, or can you simply not bear to wait? Let us know in the comments below.

Turns Out, There’s No Zelda Netflix Series After All

Early last month, the internet was abuzz on account of a Wall Street Journal article claiming that Netflix was working on developing an original series based on The Legend of Zelda. This would have been a big deal, considering that Nintendo has been very cautious about allowing their IPs to be adapted into movies or TV series.

It was, however, not meant to be. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata recently went on record with Time Magazine to dispel the rumors:

“As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information.”

What do you think? Are you disappointed? Do you think Nintendo shouldn’t allow their IPs to be adapted? Let us know in the comments below.

American board game company USAopoly has achieved quite a bit of fame in gaming circles for their board games based on licensed Nintendo franchises. Near the top of the list is Nintendo Monopoly, as well as Super Mario Bros. Chess. Now they’re bringing Nintendo characters to even more tabletop games with the announcement of Yahtzee: The Legend of Zelda and TACDEX: Super Mario.

The Zelda variant of the popular dice game will feature a dice cup shaped like a treasure chest, and should retail for around $20. It sounds like something great to pick up if you happen to be a fan of Zelda and tabletop games. If you’re interested, be sure to keep an eye on USAopoly’s website, where the game will become available in late spring.

Zelda Eternity: Now Hiring a Community Manager!

Posted on February 23, 2015 by Kasid

Long time no see, Zelda Eternity readers! Today I’ve come here to let you all know of our latest endeavor.

Behind the scenes, the team at Zelda Eternity is working to provide a better experience for our community. We’re busy redesigning the ins and outs of the site, while also planning the future ahead. As part of this, we are currently looking for someone who would be interested in engaging the Zelda Eternity community.

The Community Manager would be responsible for all aspects of community, acting as a liaison between fans and site staff. The position would entail running Zelda Eternity’s social media outlets and outreaches, as well as the forums for on-site discussion. Additionally, the manager would be organizing community events (anyone remember our Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournament?). A Community Manager would need to set time aside to regularly engage and reach out via the aforementioned mediums. The manager would also be representing Zelda Eternity, so it is imperative to have good writing and social skills.

So if you have a passion for Zelda and feel this is your forte, visit the Staff Openings page for application info and to send a message our way.

If you’ve already purchased the Hero of Hyrule Pack for Hyrule Warriors, you’re only a month away from getting all of its goodies. And boy are they rounding out that $20 package with a bang!

Beast Ganon will be a playable character in the upcoming Boss Pack. His appearance will be part of a new game mode in which you play as Beast Ganon and wreak havoc on the battlefield.

That’s not all; a Boss Challenge mode has been added which allows you to take on the giant bosses of Hyrule Warriors.

New¬†costumes for Link, Zelda, and Lana can be unlocked in Boss Challenge mode, while Ganon’s Fury will unlock new costumes for Ganondorf and Cia. Along with the release of the new pack, Version 1.6.0 will feature a raised level cap among other upgrades and a bug fix.

The Boss Pack will be available as a standalone DLC on March 12 for $2.99 on the Nintendo eShop.

Cool New Majora’s Mask 3D US Commercial

Posted on February 2, 2015 by Daisuke909

North America has been waiting for a proper 30 second TV spot for Majora’s Mask 3D, and here it is. A bit cheesy, sure, but it’s still nice to see mainstream acknowledgement for this game, as well as all the new gameplay.

Don’t be misled by the ending which only says that it’s for New Nintendo 3DS, as this game will also work on regular 3DS and 2DS.

Be sure to pick this one up on when it comes out on February 13th, along with the New Nintendo 3DS XL, in North America.
